Kristy Lee Cook and Free Speech

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

To the caller who took issue with my comments regarding Kristy Lee Cook last night:

"When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying the cross." -Sinclair Lewis

It should be possible to critique someone's performance of a patriotic song like "God Bless the U.S.A" without being told you are un-American for doing so. In my opinion Kristy has been the weakest performer on the show up until now. She frequently if off-pitch and the country arrangement of "Eight Days a Week" was a disaster. While her song choice of "God Bless the U.S.A." was a shrewd one, I found her performance schmaltzy.

And the greatest thing about this country: I'm entitled to my opinion.
