According to David Horowitz, Mr. Sayet is “simply the best political comedian working in America today”. Not just a comedian – he’s a serious thinker to boot, and listening to his latest speech is not a bad way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon.
Evan delivered the speech to the Heritage Foundation which Andrew Breitbart called “one of the five most important conservative speeches ever given,” a lecture that is now by far the single most viewed talk in their history. Evan has written and/or produced in just about every medium there is, including TV’s “Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher” (for which he apologizes), the multiple festival award-winning documentary “Dodo” and authored The Kindergarden of Eden: How the Modern Liberal Thinks (Evan will be selling and signing his new book). He was also the original writer for the long-running, cult classic game show, “Win Ben Stein’s Money.”
The previous speech, referred to is this one: “How Modern Liberals Think”:
Today, Catholics celebrate the Baptism of the Lord, marking the end of the Christmas season.
I found three different versions of the hymn, and liking all of them decided to post them all.
The Hastings College Choir sings Breath on Me Oh Breath of God as arranged by the choir’s conductor, Dr. Fritz Mountford.
This is the St. Columbia version I’m used to singing.
And here are the King’s Singers, an a cappella group founded in 1968 singing their version of Oh Breathe on Me.
They are named after King’s College in Cambridge, England, where the group was formed by six choral scholars. In the United Kingdom, their popularity peaked in the 1970s and early 1980s. Thereafter they began to reach a wider international audience, appearing frequently on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson in the U.S. In 1987, they were prominently featured as guests on the Emmy Award winning ABC-TV special Julie Andrews: The Sound Of Christmas.
Today the ensemble travels worldwide for its performances, appearing in around 125 concerts each year, mostly in Europe, the U.S. and the Far East, having recently added the People’s Republic of China to their list of touring territories. In recent years the group has enjoyed several UK appearances in the Royal Albert Hall Proms, and concerts as part of the Three Choirs Festival and City of London Festival.
