Marvin Berry's Cousin Is Not Impressed

John McCain locked up the Republican presidential nomination Tuesday night, which surprised no one.

What did surprise me, after struggling to stay awake through McCain's thoroughly unimpressive and uninspiring victory speech, was learning that his campaign's theme song is Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode". Further news to yours truly was that such has been the case since 2000.

I'm deeply offended that a Republican--even one who used to pretend to be an open-minded, progressive Republican before repositioning himself, for all intents and purposes, as a goose-stepping Bush supporter--has been sullying the reputation of Back to the Future, a.k.a. the Greatest Film Ever Made, for the better part of a decade.

The way I see it, Barack Obama's only got one choice if he's going to set things right: He needs to steal back the sports almanac.
