State Auditor: April 2010 campaign finance reports (April 18, 2010)
From Jo Mannies at the St. Louis Beacon:
…I have been an amateur musician for 30 years. In an April 9th interview on KMOX radio, I made it clear that I had intended to do a parody of ‘Bohemian Like You’ by the Dandy Warhols. I first heard that song a few months ago as part of the soundtrack to the movie ‘Delirious.’ I liked it because it sounded very much like the Rolling Stones’ song ‘Brown Sugar’ — and the Rolling Stones are my biggest musical influence…
Dude, we know the Stones, and you ain’t them. Maybe you should ask for your money back.
…The accusations of copyright infringement by bloggers opposed to my political views are, in my opinion, contrary to the law and are nothing more than an unwarranted political attack. Notwithstanding their efforts, I will continue to fight for smaller government, less debt, and more personal freedoms.
Uh, we mocked your rock video because we think it sucks.
And what do The Dandy Warhols think (via Twitter)?:
