Si un humanista hubiera sido Presidente de los Estados Unidos durante el Katrina...

Este video ya tiene tiempo (creo que lo estrenaron en septiembre de 2006), pero no lo vine a ver sino hasta ayer por MTV... es "The Saints are Coming", interpretado por U2 (tenía que ser el Bono del Ocho) y el grupo de punk Green Day. El vídeo se torna particularmente alucinante a los 1:41...



Esto es lo que hubiera ocurrido si un Hugo Chávez cualquiera hubiera sido Presidente de los Estados Unidos durante la tragedia del Katrina. Les dejo las letras...

There is a house in New Orleans,
they call the rising sun,(or Super Dome)
It's been the ruin of many a poor boy,
and God, I know I'm one.

Verse 1
I cried to my daddy on the telephone,
how long now?
Until the clouds unroll and you come down,
the line went.
But the shadows still remain since your descent,
your descent.

Verse 2
I cried to my daddy on the telephone,
how long now?
Until the clouds unroll and you come home,
the line went.
But the shadows still remain since your descent,
your descent.

Lo-Cha-Hey!

Chorus 1
The saints are coming, the saints are coming.
I say no matter how I try, I realise there's no reply.
The saints are coming, the saints are coming.
I say no matter how I try, I realise there's no reply.

Verse 3
A drowning sorrow floods the deepest grief,
how long now?
Until the weather change condemns belief,
how long now?
When the night watchman lets in the thief,
what's wrong now?

Boom! Cha! Hey!

Chorus 2
The saints are coming, the saints are coming
I say no matter how I try, I realise there's no reply.
The saints are coming, the saints are coming
I say no matter how I try, I realise there's no reply.
I say no matter how I try, I realise there's no reply.
I say no matter how I try, I realise there's no reply.
