I love the Star-Spangled Banner

Bill Press doesn’t:

“…a major crusade of mine and that is to get rid of the Star-Spangled Banner.”

Keep it up, Bill. You’re doing great, I’m sure it’ll be a proud accomplishment when you get there.

Bill Press is an embarrassment

“But it’s an abomination. First of all – it ranges two octaves most people can only do kind of one octave.”

I know, Bill. That’s just not fair. It’d be better if everyone who can’t sing could sing it. It’s so pleasant to listen to people who can’t sing, don’t you think, Bill?

“I mean when you think about it, it’s bombs bursting in air rocket’s red glare it all kinds of, you know a lot of national anthems are that way too, all kinds of military jargon and the land there’s only one phrase ‘the land of the free’ which is kind of nice and ‘the home of the brave?’ I don’t know”

I mean, all kinds, you know, kinds of, kind of, I don’t know. Exactly.

“I mean it’s just stupid I think. I’m embarrassed, I’m embarrassed every time I hear it.”

Well, you make quite the compelling argument. I’ll think it over a little more, Bill. Keep working on your “crusade”, though. In the meantime, I’ll stick with my immense pride in a cherished song for my dear country. “You know”, that country great enough to send its best and brightest in harm’s way to defend every American’s right to spout idiocy.
