Republicans have no Heart, confirmed:

Ann and Nancy Wilson are pissed at the Republican Party and have fired off a cease and desist letter to the McCain/Palin campaign.

Specifically, the Heart women are upset that the GOP has used their classic "Barracuda" as a theme song for Sarah Palin. TMZ obtained a statement from Heart's rep, who says "The Republican campaign did not ask for permission to use the song, nor would they have been granted that permission."[..]

UPDATE: Twenty minutes after we posted this story, the GOP ended the evening after McCain's speech with the song, "Barracuda."

Gotta love these "Rule of Law" Republicans. And not the first time for McCain either. He has been sued by Jackson Browne for using his song, served with a Cease and Desist for using a Frankie Valli song, used footage of the Wayne and Garth characters from Wayne's World without permission, and used the Theme from Rocky without permission. You know, the first time you make this mistake, I can write it off as a honest error. But over and over and over, especially using songs from known Democrats like the Wilson sisters and Jackson Browne. That just goes over the abyss into complete arrogance.
