The Battle Hymn and the Centrists

Posted by Mike Merritt in Videos on

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.
