Just a jolly old anti-American singalong


Having apparently exhausted his roles as professor, geopolitician, author and businessman, Dr. Henry A. Kissinger was trying out for American Idol — but in Chungking, China, where he was an honored  celebrity at a “Red Songs Gala” celebrating the 90th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party.  I vondah vat dat Bavarian-Manhattan Heights accent sounds like in Mandarin? The sing-along of a hundred thousand devoted comrades opened with that rollicking old favorite, “Follow the Communist Party”, followed by other classics, maybe including that alltime favorite “My Motherland”, abusing American GIs in the Korean War, played recently at the White House at another gala. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nmLxqYNxqzA
