Sometimes you have to wonder if some of the most gag-inducing stunts done to promote politicians are dreamt up by the campaigns themselves, or if politicians’ grassroots supporters’ brains just spontaneously combust and lead them to embarrass themselves in the name of their heroes.
Take for instance this new video about Hillary Clinton.
It’s short. Apparently the scene was set for a Hillary campaign speech in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and the Voices From the Heart all-women’s choir was invited to perform.
So, did someone from the campaign tell them, “Hmm, you know what would really go over great at our rally? A nice, hagiographic song. You know, something that’s really, spectacularly over the top.”
Or did the choir ladies come up with this themselves?
Because what they actually did was just change one word of a song. That doesn’t sound like much, but because it’s a Gospel song, it’s basically equating Hillary to Jesus.
The song is called “Woke Up This Morning (With My Mind on Jesus),” but in the choir’s version, the lyrics are: “Woke up this mornin’ with my mind, stayin’ on Hillary/Woke up this mornin’ with my mind, stayin’ on Hillary/Hallelu, Hallelu, Hallelu, Hallelu, Hallelujah! ”
I’m a bit surprised they didn’t change “hallelujah” to “Hill-elujah.” They already showed Jesus the door; they may as well go for a blasphemy two-fer.
This isn’t exactly “Sister Act,” which was cute because the choir in that movie took secular songs and turned them into worship songs. It’s a lot less funny when worship songs are blasphemitized for the sake of promoting a politician.
I thought we got more than enough of this stuff from Barack Obama’s followers, who have churned out worship songs, ridiculous books and even short videos using biblical imagery to describe their hero.
There are also plenty of signs that the narcissistic Obama believes his own myth, such as when he was nominated the first time and promised that would be the moment “when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.”
Then he walked on water and fed everybody with a single fish, etc.
I don’t know that it’s just Democrats who do this sort of stuff. I mean, I’ve probably repressed some of the overboard stuff Republicans have done. But it sure seems like Democrats do it a lot, which is pretty funny for a group of people who on average barely believe in God, much less the Bible.
And they invariably pick the scuzziest person they can find to do it to. I mean, Hillary? Patron Saint of Lost Emails and Compromised Servers?
I have to keep this in perspective.
Let him who is without sin cast the first ballot.
Nah, that won’t work.
