    Ha! I see what you did there, trying to get me to click on a link to the Daily Douche. No, sir! That way madness lies, alongside two highly stressed beagles.

    I’m just not clever enough, darn you….

    Hey, look at it this way. I read the thing, so you don’t have to! :-)

    I Hear America Singing:

    What if, on the morning of September 11th, 2010, when we wake up and get ready to go out to put up the flag, or stand for a moment on our porches or balconies, or at our front doors looking out over the sidewalks of our neighborhoods, (or wherever it is that we will find ourselves that morning), and what if, in coming to consciousness in those early moments, each of us slowly realizes that this is, indeed, the Ninth Anniversary of September 11th? And what if, in doing so, each of us recalls what all of us, (the living, the maimed, and the dead), suffered from the horrific, dreadful events of that day nine years ago?

    And what if each of us, just because we wanted to do so, not at the beckoning of anyone else, nor at the direction of a government agent, what if each of us, quite freely, and in our own particular style, without asking “ Is it allowed?”, without obtaining the required permit, having no “permission slip” signed by “the authorities,” performing for no audience beyond ourselves, what if each of us, at some moment of our own choosing, deliberately raised our voices in song, or took up our instruments: our horns, our strings, our reeds or our drums, and began to play and sing “America the Beautiful,” two or three times over, or just as long as we liked? And what if we stopped when we chose to do so, and not before?

    And what if two or three of us, starting to sing and play, hear another voice from across the street, or from down the road, or from across the town or the city and then hear yet another join us? Or what if those of us still silent hear their song, and when they finish, new singers (each of us) take up the song for a few minutes so that “America the Beautiful “echoes through our time and space across the land?

    And what if some of us played or sang “off key”, or missed notes, or had to look up “America the Beautiful” on youtube.com to remind us of how the melody or words go? And what if we taught it to our families and our friends so we all could sing and play our hearts out on that September morning?

    And what if, having spent some few minutes in song on this coming September 11th morning, just in singing, in that act itself, we were solemnly to realize the amazing and wondrous gift we have been given: the privilege to live in freedom, in this country, in these times? And what if some in America that morning chose to forget, or were too busy, or too intimidated by the powerful who might investigate and prosecute a display of spirit so “unacceptable to our leaders”? Or what if no American cared to do this, if none thought it worth the risk, and no one sang or played that music across time and space?

    What then, if on this September 11th morning, just one little old man taking up his trombone, and just one little old woman picking up her violin, stand on their porch in the blessed sunlight (or the rain or the fog) before God and their neighbors and all the world, and pierce the silence of the morning in great solemnity so that the lovely sounds of their instruments and their aged, wavering voices surround them? And what if, on that sacred morning, “America the Beautiful” hangs brightly in the air, if only for a few, brief minutes, in true remembrance and celebration of who we are? And what if they invite you to join them?

    That would probably be all right, too. Count On It Happening!

    Oh, I went back to checking when the Terry Jones mess came up, because I knew he’d find a way to tie it to Palin, and I wasn’t disappointed.

    Ha! I don’t believe it, though. Mr. Sullivan radically changes his mind whenever public opinion goes that way. GW Bush popular? He was on board! Popular Iraq war? On board again!

    People get fed up with the Iraq War? Well, now Sullivan is, too! People loved Obama! He loved Obama! People souring on Obama! He is souring on Obama!

    I said this last year…when Obama starts to tank, Sullivan’s “he can do no wrong” stance will start to change, too. He also follows public opinion and his opinions coincide with popular opinions; they do not lead or influence popular opinion.

    Sullivan is no leader. He’s a follower of the pack who screams loud enough to make people think he’s a mover (when he’s just himself being moved).

    Not to worry. We still have Tingles.

    Andy’s occasional onsets of sanity rarely last until the end of his article. No exception to the rule here. His fog clears enough to recognize that Obama is tending toward despotry but then the gentle numbness of self-righteousness causes him to drift off mumbling something about Tea Partiers wanting royalty or some such nonsense. It’s like seeing the light of recognition in an Alzheimer’s patient’s eyes and then watching it fade away.
    Sad.

    OK, I read some of it. I usually visit the dish about once every few months, just to see what the color of the sky is in his world. Of course the crush isn’t completely over for him. He is still making excuses, like the fact that powerful forces are making Obama do it. I also love the “we don’t torture any more” stuff, as if handing a suspect over to the enlightened hands of the Turkish, Pakistani, or Saudi intelligence services (rendition) was working on a higher moral plane. I’m not sure where he goes if he walks away from Obama. I mean Palin bashing will only generate so many blog postings. He also has the problem of dealing with that pesky immigration issue, so he can’t walk to far away from the Won.

    “Daily Douche” was worth all my trollling today.

    Don’t worry – he’ll be crushing some other man soon enough.

    “Ann-a-lanched”?

    Aval-Ann-ched?

    I don’t click on Andrew Sullivan links. Ever.

    Don’t know who A. S. is Im new to blogging.
    Are you implying he likes men.
    Althouse is running for president?

    Steve, assuming you’re asking for real:

    Don’t know who A. S. is Im new to blogging. — Lunatic blogger for the Atlantic who insists that Sarah Palin didn’t actually have her last child and inisists on gynecological evidence to prove it.

    Are you implying he likes men. — That’s actually a pretty well-established fact. There’s a disturbing personal ad for him involving descriptions of things he enjoys done to him.
