The [Tuesday] Papers
"Newt Gingrich might feel like Rocky Balboa when he takes the stage at campaign events to Survivor's 1982 hit 'Eye of the Tiger,"' but it's the co-writer of the song who is ready for a fight," the Sun-Times reports.
"Chicago-born Frankie Sullivan sued Gingrich in federal court Monday, saying the Republican presidential candidate is using his Rocky III anthem in his campaign without permission.
"Sullivan, who has a home in the northwest suburbs, insisted it's not about politics. It's about someone who should know better using his copyright material for free."
Here's my favorite part, though:
"Sullivan didn't want to get into whether he likes Gingrich or his politics. His co-writer on the song, fellow Survivor founding member Jim Peterik, however, gave Gingrich a partial endorsement.
"'My wife is a big fan,' Peterik said. 'I'm becoming a fan of Newt Gingrich. He has a mind of his own. He's not a talking head. Originally, I didn't like him, but look at the competition. He's looking better and better.'
"Peterik described himself as 'very apolitical' - and wouldn't draw a line on which politician should use 'Eye' for events.
"'If someone is out there trying to make a difference, let him do it . . . Unless it was Adolf Hitler,' Peterik said."
Anyone but Hitler, that's where he draws the line.
Kmart has pharmacies? Ewww!
The funny thing, though, is that the racially-riven city Daley supposedly healed was racially-riven because of white people, not black. Namely, Ed Burke and Ed Vrdolyak. Daley left Burke in place - and so did Rahm Emanuel.
Harold Washington wasn't allowed to heal the city; only a white mayor was given permission to do that. After all, Chicago needs either a white or a wet mayor.
