Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

Flipping channels last night, I had the good fortune of landing on CMT just as American Patriot and Diplomat par excellence Toby Keith was talking up his next song. “There’s nothing more important at this time of year than the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ… now here’s my favorite song off my Christmas album, ‘Little Drummer Boy’…”

Beautiful. What’er you gonna give the baby Jesus, Toby, a boot in the ass of his enemies?

    Hmm. First, this is maybe the most political I’ve even seen you on your blog (though I’m probably forgetting). Awesome! :-)

    Second, WOW. Having never listened to anything but the titular last line of the chorus (which is somewhat amusing), I had no idea that the lyrics to Beer For My Horses were so abhorrent. Ahh, for the good old days of lynching and equine drunkenness.

    I do like Carrie Underwood (I’m sorry but ‘Jesus Take the Wheel’ is great–my baby girl {age 11} loves American Idol). Also, Carrie covered a Pretenders song, so she had me at hello. But this sort of country music…scares me. I don’t like the lyrics here.

    With patriotism,
