    5:02 bebe winans sings the national anthem 

    it needed to be sung again?

    maybe he was making up for what that teengirl did to it.

    by the way, the place is full now.

    but damn is he singing this thing slow.

    so this is what they meant when they said that kerry wouldnt accept the nomination until august. fuckin bebe isnt gonna finish the damn song till then.

    “‘for that matter are the economic policies really conservative at all? for example did you expect the largest deficit in history, year after year? one right after another?

    “‘and the loss of more than a million jobs?’

    “by the way i know about the bad economy, i was the first one to get laid off.”

    oh, al. now im sorry i voted for nader.

    “and god bless the united states.”
