According to the commenters over at Michelle Malkin’s blog (but not necessarily Michelle herself), you have to be a conservative to appreciate the song played for the arrival of the Pope at the White House, the Civil War-era patriotic song, “Battle Hymn of the Republic.”
The highly religiously themed song seems appropriate to welcome a reigning pontiff, but that’s not why I appreciate the song. Not being very religious, I don’t care much about its lyrics. I care more about the music, and BHotR has some awesome music.
It’s a very powerful piece, and listening to it twice over just now really set up the rest of my day for me. Take that as you will.
