Great timing --- I just heard him singing it on web radio -- loved it!

Yes, the remark about King George's Hessians is original, at least for this time and place, and feel free.

It is a very tough position for someone who has bought the flag -- and who among us has not been full of pride for it at some point? If my daughter were over there I'd be baking cookies and praying too, while I was doing anything I reasonably could do to get her out. But if she was over there because she personally believed in the rightness of that course of action -- unlikely, but if -- then I'd just bake cookies and pray. A lot.
We have a great luxury to be able to harp on this massive stupidity.
