Watch: re-worded Battle Hymn of the Republic rendition all about Sarah Palin

Pin it

Yes, this is a thing that happened, and it's exactly what it sounds like. Watch the above clip to see two Sarah Palin superfans perform a re-written version of the Battle Hymn of the Republic as an ode to the ex-governor, armed with nothing but a countrified, synth-y backing track, syllable-adding skills worthy of Billy Mack ("Sarah Palin, she won't listen to their bunk / Sarah Palin's coming south to hunt some skunk" steps in for "glory, glory hallelujah" in the chorus), and all the self-awareness of, well, anyone that adds their own sassy, political lyrics to pre-existing songs.
