Look at the Hippy Overlords conducting this crap. You know they only allow "healthy snacks" and "educational toys" in their homes. How I HATED these idiots by about er... grade 5 (1976).
Imagine Hope. I imagine I hope he loses.
From the website of the people behind this crap.
Sing for Change was a confluence of hard work, good will, and shared vision.
A triumph of the will!!
Inspired by ideas raised at a grassroots Obama fundraiser, a music teacher, Kathy Sawada, and the children composed and rehearsed the songs in less than two weeks.
So THAT'S why it sucks!
Several musicians heard of the effort and volunteered to accompany the children. Parents and older siblings designed and provided the T-Shirts and the banner. There’s a first for everything, but rarely do so many firsts come together at once: for the children and their parents, this is their first performance, first video, first banner, and first involvement with grassroots work on a presidential campaign.
Grassroots, paid for by rich people! Now that's grassroots!
As Sunday approached, a neighbor volunteered a home. Production wizards got wind of the project and offered their help in recordingit. The likes of Jeff Zucker, Holly Schiffer, Peter Rosenfeld, Darin Moran, Jean Martin, Andy Blumenthal, and Nick Phoenix rearranged schedules to participate. Holly Schiffer was able to get three High Definition cameras (Panasonic HVX250’s), and an AVID editing facility. When Jeff Zucker went to pick up the camera package, Ted Schilowitz happened to be there and offered a RED camera set up on a SteadiCam.
Just HAPPENED TO BE THERE WITH A STEADICAM. Right....
What we accomplished in a few hours on a Sunday afternoon embodies the nature of the Obama campaign: its grassroots inspiration, its inclusiveness, its community building. People pitched in quickly for a cause that resonated with them. There were not many conditions: “Think this is a good idea? Want to help? Great. Sunday at 12:00.” At the heart of the project were 22 children and their music. The willingness of all involved to come together for them was a testament to our hope, unity, courage, joy and belief in the future represented by these children.
Contrived, sickly sweet and vapid in a bongo beating I'd like to teach the world to sing nonsense kind of way. Politics and world view for people who've never been in the real world.
God, help us.
