Tonight Show Extra Song!

by Kathy Davis on June 6, 2009

We heart PJ.    The line  “there’s a thousand points of light for the doctor man, where is the kinder gentler Pro-Life hand?” briefly references the recent murder of women’s health care physician Dr. George Tiller, who was gunned down while serving as an usher during his church service in Wichita, Kansas the day before the band’s performance.   Dr. Tiller, director of a clinic that performs abortions,  had faced violence previously in 1994 having been shot in both arms by a Pro-Life extremist.

UPDATE: The video has been removed from NBC.com, and is available to Non-U.S. users of You Tube here. Dangit!
