Brower Raps Hawaii

Hawaii state house representatives got a unique invocation from Rep. Tom Brower last week. Instead of the traditional prayer, Brower unleashed a rap that recalled, sort of, the events of the 2009 legislative session. Sample: “House blog/ Coqui frogs/ Menopause/ Hilo vog/ Drug sniffing dog.”

The best part may be the complete non-reaction at the end from Vice Speaker of the House Michael Magaoay, who thanks dryly Brower for his "political insight prayer." Guess nobody needed an encore?

This isn’t Brower’s first spoken-word odyssey; he performed a similarly verb-less rap last year, on April 1 (also available on YouTube, for hardcore rap fans).
