Send in the clowns

GOP: "Back in the Saddle"
Aerosmith: "Dream On"

Aerosmith won't let the repukes use "Back in the Saddle" to promote their stimulus obstruction efforts.

House Republican Eric Cantor's clip that used the Aerosmith hit to declare that "The House GOP is back" has been pulled from YouTube for copyright infringement.

"Aerosmith did not approve of its use and expressed their desire to kick the living shit out of Mr Cantor," said their director of copyright and licensing, who said they also took issue with the bizarro statement that the "GOP is back."
Fun fact: the song is about having sex with a whore. So in that respect it would have been perfect for the GOP...

I'm like a loaded gun
Peelin' off my boots and chaps
I'm saddle sore
Four bits gets you time in the racks
I scream for more
Fools gold out of their mines
The girls are soaking wet
No tongue's drier than mine
I'll come when I get back
I'm back in the saddle again

... Except for the fact that they're singing about female prostitutes.
