ANN AND NANCY WILSON OF HEART are unhappy with the RNC’s use of their Barracuda. But despite the obvious tie-in with Sarah Palin’s basketball nickname of “Sarah Barracuda,” it’s a bad campaign song anyway since, if you listen to the lyrics, it’s about a manipulative phony who’ll say whatever people want to hear: “Smiles like the sun, kisses for everyone, and tales, it never fails . . . . And if the real thing don’t do the trick, you better make up something quick.” At least, it’s a bad campaign song if it’s supposed to be about Sarah Palin.

And congrats to Howard Mortman for remembering that Crazy on You is the best Cold-War inspired oral-sex song ever.

UPDATE: Reader Gerry Daly says I’m wrong: “The song was in response to ugly, unfounded sexual rumors being spread about the Wilson sisters. In that regard, it is extremely fitting for Palin. Honestly, can you think of a more fitting rejoinder to her foes in politics and the media than ‘And if the real thing don’t do the trick, you better make up something quick’?” Good point.
