Whiskey and Guns
Ooh! Now you can see a three and a half minute video of Ken Blackwell’s staff learning how to shoot in an old barn.

As proud gun owners, I would have expected them to be more adept at emptying the spent shells from a .38. Careful son, those things are hot.

Anyway, playing through the whole video is a Toby Keith song about getting drunk after hanging people called “Whiskey For My Man, Beer For My Horses”.

I wonder if the campaign is paying ASCAP for the use of this song?

According to the ASCAP website, an Internet/New Media license for a single song should cost about $350.

And I’m pretty sure the license fee needs to be paid BEFORE the song is used—but the only video-related expenses the campaign has reported are:

VIDEOCASSETTE: 260
VIDEO TAPING: 375
VIDEO PRODUCTION FEES: 6,250
VIDEO PRODUCTION: 18,469
VIDEO CASSETTE: 85
