Sarah Palin’s ‘Battle Hymn of the Republic’

This is so bad on so many levels, I would not even know where to start. Please do not allow the comments section to be as badly done as the effort in this video.

Not even to mention that this was apparently done in a church service somewhere. Please tell me they broke out the rattlesnakes after this was over. Oh, and I’m about 10,000% sure that this has not been endorsed by Sarah Palin. But, I’ve been wrong before…

If I’m not mistaken, the offertory hymn was “Coal Miner’s Daughter.”

Just a guy writing some things.


    I stopped it 39 seconds in. Couldn’t go on.

    Why’d I let that into my head? I’ll be in the prayer closet asking for the wiping clean of my mind.

      I’m gonna be hurt if you don’t give me a link from 12W.

    What Art said…
    Was this before or after you preached, Marty?

  • jack

    This has to be a joke. Please, please tell me this is a joke.

  • Marty Duren

    I should have dedicated this to you ;^)

    I rebuke you.

    I just fear that we both know the piano player.

    But, really, is this all that different from “Justice Sundays 1 & 2” from a few years back?

  • Christiane

    poor Sarah . . . I wonder if she knows about this?

    • Marty Duren

      If she doesn’t yet, I’m sure she will soon. Maybe the next installment of Sarah Palin’s Alaska will feature the family watching it together.

      Then puking off the back deck.

    If this is what they did to get their 15 minutes of fame they have truly wasted their time. Not only was it horrible beyond words, I have a strange fascination to know who wrote those abominable lyrics.

    • Marty Duren

      The video is also included on another on YouTube hosted by the Young Turks. They give the name of the man singing and the “lyricist.”

  • Elisabeth Crosswhite

    First of all..I love how nervous the woman is over singing this song.
    2) I think she picks a wedgie before the song starts.
    3) The camera person is so off key it’s distracting lol
    4) She’s coming south to hunt some skunk?…. WHO SAYS THAT?
    5) That man gets very frustrated when no one understands his hand signals.

    Okay I think I’m done..

  • i just nearly unsubscribed from your email list over this. Not because I am a Palin fan. But instead, because you would admit to how bad this is and still post it on your site.

    • Marty Duren

      What can I say? It was a slow afternoon.

      I did give you fair warning.

  • My biggest fear? The preacher would try to stop these guys from doing it and he gets fired!

    I cast these people out in the name of Howie Mandell…

  • Wait…is this a lip synch? That makes it even worse!

    • Marty Duren

      I don’t think it’s a lip sync. I think it’s a voice-over in parts. It sounds like they are singing with a pre-recorded version, but I can’t be sure.

  • Spencer Haygood

    Aaaaauuuugghhhhhhh!! Not something to see just before heading out to an elders’ meeting! Dizzy … losing peripheral vision …..

  • Jacob

    I made it to 53 seconds. If only I could stand it long enough to be able to learn the chorus. I’d always be able to win the battle with Beth over getting the worst song stuck in the other’s head.

  • I have to apologize for my grandparents!

  • Blair Bailey

    I came for Bell’s Hells and what I got was a preview of what I imagine would be SP’s cabnet…Love definitely is not winning in this video

    • Marty Duren

      Neither were tact, taste, musical ability…
