"Gingrich isn't the first G.O.P. candidate to be sued for using music -- back in 2008, Jackson Browne sued John McCain for using the song "Running on Empty" in a political ad."

I wish a Tiger would stick a claw in Newt's eyeball for thinking he can steal music. He would be the first one who ought to be prosecuted under the SOPA act.

Good,.. sue his "eye of Newt" right out of his silly head. That's what he gets for assuming an elected position "magically" gives him rights over copyrights.

Put a hex on him!!

Didn't Sarah Palin use Jethro Tull's "Witches Promise" in her last campaign for governor of Alaska a few years ago? Just wondering.

LOL. It's a good thing they don't have the same type of laugh. That would cause Newt some serious problems.

It's not decided yet. They are trying to choose between 'can't sing it right' and 'forgot the words'. It's a tough choice.

He should use the song Que Sera, Sera (Whatever Will Be, Will Be)", by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans in his next campaign.

Nah,.. he should use "I'm a little teapot, fat and stout". The whole chorus fits him perfectly.
