Hank Williams Jr., opening with the National Anthem for Sarah Palin in Colorado Springs, said, “You know, I’m usually at ‘Monday Night Football’ tonight, but Colorado, this is a lot more important tonight. Join me now in our national—you know, that song that, uh, Mr. Obama’s not real crazy about, we’re singing it right now.”
Per CBS News, Palin responded, "Hey, he exercises those First Amendment rights. We love him! Yes. So we want to thank Hank and we are going to see him tomorrow night on the other side of victory, my friend."
Obama, meanwhile, paid tribute to his grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, who died today, as "one of those quiet heroes."
