"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Now they're taking the Star-Spangled Banner

Further madness on the alternate anthem (Nuestro Himno or Illegal Alien Anthem).

"American immigrants borrowed the melody of the "Star Spangled Banner" from an English drinking song" - British music producer Adam Kidron
"So, the national anthem is just a drinking song?" - Joey of Wide White
Cross posted from Wide White:
No, not the flag. The anthem. Spanish 'Star-Spangled Banner' Draws Ire

MIAMI - British music producer Adam Kidron says that when he came up with the idea of a Spanish-language version of the U.S. national anthem, he saw it as an ode to the millions of immigrants seeking a better life.
