Once Colin Powell sings a song, it is eternally his!

Wow, now that is funny!
He's no Bob Weir, though. hahha.

Maybe he'll do a duet with Leonard Nemoy or William Shatner next?

GOOD LORD! That was the worst singing I have ever heard (so I say as I gank the movie from and convert the audio track into .mp3 for mass distribution)

Kill me NOW!!!!

He wouldn't stop...the tears kept coming, but my God, he wouldn't stop, and then he started dancing, and I could feel the icy grip of death on my spine...Stop...please...

Why God, why?

Trult, truly, TRULY repulsive....this was in _Vietnam_, fer chrissakes....

That was physically painful to watch. In fact, I could not watch it all...the audience looked to be in pain as well.

I never thought I could feel embarrased for a (ex) four star general. ugh.

Would've been more entertaining if someone had shot him at the appropriate times for that song.

I couldn't watch that for more than 10 seconds. Once the singers got out of synch I had to stop it. They should just blast this over speakers on helicopters flying with the sun behind them (ala Ride of the Valkyries (which I'm listening to eight now actually) from Apocalypse Now). They wouldn't even have to land on the beach or lose one of their choppers. The 'enemy' would hear that that that sound and stop fighting immediately, knowing that resistance was futile and that they would asspowellinated.

Or something like that. Sorry sleep deprivation is a cruel mistress sometimes.

Make it stop.

I felt like I was back in the Fillmore in '72...
2001-07-27 02:43:02 PM  
Ye gods, what the heck was the occasion? That was scary....
2001-07-27 03:47:18 PM  
Hmm. All I got was an ad telling me how nice the media delivery was gonna be...then an ad for some crappy tv show. Never saw Powell do anthing. Must be this damn govt. computer ;-)

After wakening out of the Powell incuded coma I had a vision of a summer camp verion of Al Joslten singing in Madame Butterfly.

The man has worked his tail off to do what..... sing off key for international deplomacy? Damn shame if you ask me.

Wow. That was amazing. (like several others, I was unable to
watch the entire posting. -too painfull) What evil mind control does Dubya have over this man?

Personally, I suspect some sort of high level government experiment (codename: whitewash)is behind this. Apparently, they have branched out from the Jackson family. If Michael, Janet, and Tito have outlived their clinical usefullness, no one is safe. Run.
