The Chicks Get It

What gives with the knee-jerk bashing and Right radio boycott of the Dixie Chicks.

Their crime?

Chick Maines said to concertgoers in England...."we're ashamed the president of the United States is from Texas."

That's it. Bush as an embarrassment. Ohhhhhhh. The sky is falling!

The Chick remark pales in comparison to the remark by Ann Coulter,... the Right's revered Preying Mantis... in her recent trash-talk book, that some of the 9/11 widows were "enjoying their husbands deaths." But did Right book store owners refuse to carry her book?

Seems like the Chicks are still cutting edge. First entertainers to recognize Bush as an international embarrassment, and now the first to embed a blogger on tour. A fresh departure from superficial fan blogging.

You go Chicks!

Great post, great blog! I'm trying to enjoy the new Dixie Chicks CD without letting politics get in the way (for the record, I too am ashamed of the President).
