JibJab vs. Dylan

JibJab vs. Dylan

Bob Dylan's early works are so deeply ingrained in the American consciousness, they've almost become the folk songs he was emulating. It's hard to imagine someone sitting down and actually writing "The Times They Are A-Changin'" after the title has become a part of the language, like it was handed down for generations.

But it's still got a very real copyright. So watch the latest from on-line Flash cartoonists JibJab, before Bob's lawyers do.

What else have I got here...

  • Two days in a row, John McCain references "Czechoslovakia," which is of course nestled between East Prussia and Austria-Hungary. No big deal, of course. It's Czechoslovakia. It's like going into Wisconsin.

  • The Decider offers an explanation (via Political Wire):
    "I'm 62, I'm having trouble remembering things."

    -- President Bush, at a news conference earlier today, in comments not helpful to 71 year old John McCain.

  • Arbinder notes that if it's McCain-Mitt, the announcement may be sooner, as Romney is going to the Olympics. Ah, Beijing 2008, in the fine tradition of Berlin 1936.

  • Georgia and Alabama voted yesterday; Georgia's challenged House incumbents all won handily.
