    Sorry, but I am sick to death of "God Bless America", and I'm a Christian and an American.

    Why has become some sort of de-facto second national anthem? I hate hearing it at baseball games (whatever happened to "Take Me Out to the Ballgame"?); it's pointless jingoism.

    My other reaction to that song is, Why in the name of all that is holy should God bless America? All we've done recently is help destroy God's creation, torture God's children, wage wars, starve the poor, etc.

    As far as Obama adopting it, I think it'd be a cynical move, and I think people would see through it. Then again, I'm definitely not the NASCAR target demographic, so who knows, maybe it would play. But Obama would lose respect points from me for it.
