The Sound Of Marriage Equality

Whatever you thought of the live Sound of Music starring Carrie Underwood, it was still commendable for a number of reasons, including exposing country fans to musical theatre, and showing people who’d only seen the movie the numbers and scenes that were cut from it. Not that Julie Andrews wasn’t adorable, but in the movie, the Captain dumps Baroness Schraeder just because of one dance with his employee, which is sort of creepy. ┬áIn the actual musical, Schraeder turns out to be a Nazi appeaser, and possibly a sympathizer, which is a slightly better reason.

I was reminded of this song by Louie Gohmert (and a few other wingnuts), remarking that the spreading tide of marriage equality was just like the spread of Naziism.
