Their Asshole Behavior Never Stops

Former Republican Congressman and war criminal Allen West, speaking out in outrage because Lady Gaga changed one word when she sung the national anthem:

"Having served in the US Army for 22 years alongside some very brave men and women, I find Lady Gaga's defiling of our National Anthem reprehensible. We are the land of the free because America has always been the home of the brave from Lexington and Concord to Kandahar. This young lady should be taken to Ft. McHenry and given a history lesson as to why Francis Scott Key wrote those words incredible words. In this week where we remember the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg and the 237th anniversary of our Independence is further evidence of the level of ignorance and disrespect some have for our national character. She and all those who cheered her abomination should be ashamed and apologize to every serving and retired member of our Armed Services. But perhaps I ask too much…"

How ashamed and apologetic should West be for having tortured innocent civilians in Iraq, and consequently being forced out of the armed forces, and how ashamed and apologetic should every Republican in this country be for their party, which determined that this hateful monster was suited to serve in Congress?

I have just about reached the end of my toleration with these people.  It is getting very difficult to pay any attention to them any more.

Give him Hendrix at Woodstock.

It is considered unusually retentive here if one can even remember the second verse of our national anthem.
It's not as catchy as our other songs but those tend to be about thieves, wild horses and bushfires.
Not exactly hand over heart stuff...
