Jackson Browne, Ohio Republican Party Settle Lawsuit


Remember when the Ohio Republican Party used part of Jackson Browne's "Running on Empty" last year when John McCain was running for president? Remember when Browne through a hissy about it? Well, we can all exhale: The matter's been resolved.

Browne filed a lawsuit last August after the Ohio Republican Party posted a pro-McCain video using parts of "Running on Empty."

Details of the settlement weren't disclosed, but apparently the way-left-leaning Browne got some cash out of the deal.

Not sure what the big deal is. It sounds like a whole lotta truth to is, since the Republican party had been running on empty for at least the past eight years. —Michael Gallucci
