John Ashcroft

Former Attorney General and part-time songwriter John Ashcroft gave attendees at his 2002 appearance at the Gordon-Cornwell Theological Seminary a superspecial treat: a stirring rendition of his superspecial patriotic paean "Let the Eagle Soar." Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11 made Ashcroft — and his overly dramatic anthem — infamous. Then again, Ashcroft was probably well on his way to doing that himself.
