Well, here’s something: to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the attacks of 9/11, former Florida congressman and current MSNBC host Joe Scarborough has spilled his heart out in the form of a song.
The Huffington Post caught up with Scarborough to get some insight into his country track “Reason to Believe.”
“It’s critical that we remember the heroes of 9/11 and those who are still fighting in an endless war,” he said. “They need to come home. It’s time.”The song is certainly a noble effort, but, let’s be honest, who’s going to get riled up with lyrics like these?
“In the flash of an hour / Watching dreams fall from towers / All I once knew came tumbling down.”
To say nothing of the refrain:
“What would you guess about a stranger’s caress? / That reminds me of what we used to be / At the end of the hour, when I’m drained of all power / I still find a reason to believe.”
Anyway, rock on, Joe.
