Trivial

WaPo is running a quiz of our knowledge on the national anthem in light of Ms Aguilera's 'reaming' of the song during the Super Bowl.

Why? Apparently to prove that it's OK for a highly-paid professional singer to botch the words to the most patriotic American song during a huge internationally-televised event because, er, un-paid, non-professionals/tea baggers don't know their Star Spangled Banner trivia. Surely there's also a way to blame Sarah Palin.

Maybe if these people would stop trying to jazz it up so much to draw attention themselves and their voices, they wouldn't be as apt to screw it up. We know she has a good voice, there is nothing for her to prove there. Just sing the damned words.

But you are taking away her right of free expression!

And besides, do YOU, LA Sunsett, know all your history about the national anthem? If not, then you have no right to cast stones, ever. Unless Sarah Palin does it.

AC, I suppose you can blame me for becoming so sarcastic. I have left sarcastic droppings on your blog for years now and I guess it's finally rubbed off on you.

I suppose I should feel ashamed right now. In fact, I will punish myself by going to bed early tonight.

Don't worry LA, I learned snark all by myself (actually Mustang taught me years ago).

Cheers!
