Country Singer Luke Bryan Blasted by Right-Wingers for Reading National Anthem Lyrics Off His Hand at MLB All-Star Game in Kansas City: Better Shoot Him!
1. Having watched Bryan's rendition on Tuesday night: Upon seeing nothing but the headline on this story ("Singer Luke Bryan Apologizes for National Anthem Controversy"), the first thing that occurred to me (seriously) was that the "controversy" must relate to the extremely tight-fittin' jeans he wore that night. Dude looked positively silly. Like he'd just fallen out of a bad episode of "Seinfeld" (if such a thing exists). I hadn't even noticed that he was apparently looking at his hand during the performance.
2. I really couldn't care less that he was cribbin' the lyrics. Better that than to screw 'em up. How many freaks over the years (sometimes intentionally, but usually not) butcher the national anthem in one way or other, including forgetting or tripping all over the words. If anything, I think it's a sign of Bryan's "respect" for the song and its performance that he cared enough to make sure he didn't stink up the joint by mangling up the words. So as usual: S-T-F-U, right-wingers. We'd all be so much better off if you and the leftist 20 percenters would not go away mad, but just go away.
