Make It Stop!
My biggest beef with the Democratic National Convention? That god-awful rendition of "Proud Mary" with the Kerry-ized lyrics. This election is a battle over 5, maybe 10, percentage points of the population - I reckon this is enough to turn 1 or 2 of them away.
And what's with the moribund version of "Celebration"? You telling me that Kool & The Gang wasn't available to do it live? And did the singer just say, "K to the E to the double R Y!"?
