The state of Colorado, whose 9 electoral votes may hold the key to the presidency, got a November surprise last night courtesy of Hank Williams, Jr., who rode his dead father's coattails all the way to a Sarah Palin rally last night.
And there, he broke the news that the liberal mainstream media was too French to report: Barack Obama hates the National Anthem…
Singer Hank Williams, Jr., who has become a regular warm-up act on the campaign trail for Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, said that Sen. Barack Obama is "not real crazy about" the national anthem before singing the Star-Spangled Banner at a rally in Colorado Springs, CO this evening.
"You know, I’m usually at Monday Night Football tonight, but Colorado, this is a lot more important tonight," Williams said at an airport hangar rally in Colorado Springs. "Join me now in our national — you know, that song that, uh, Mr. Obama’s not real crazy about, we’re singing it right now."
Apparently Williams received the right-wing chain e-mail that claims Obama wants to replace our current Anthem with "I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing." (Whereas John McCain has reached out to the Williams base by proposing it be changed to "Are You Ready For Some Football?")
Unfortunately for Williams, he may have dropped the bomb a few weeks too late. Colorado allows early voting and, given its extreme popularity in the state, many residents cast their ballots long, long ago.
Not as long ago as the last Hank Williams, Jr. hit, mind you, but long ago nonetheless.
