Why Should God Bless America? That's the question raised in an original song sung by a choir to open the recent GOP Value Voters debate. Air America Radio host Rachel Maddow points out the double standard this sort of nuttiness reveals. If the song God Bless America had been butchered to fit their political agenda and sung in front of Democratic presidential candidates, the heads of the right wing pols and pundits would have simultaneously exploded. Another entertaining and educational video from the good Dr. Maddow. You can check out the rest of her Campaign Asylum videos here.
Update from Blue Gal: Logan and I were posting on the same thing today (great minds and all that), so I'll add my two cents.
FYI Cliff Schecter has posted the right-wing lyrics sung at the Values Voters debate. Ick.
