Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

Well It Seems To Be Unanimous

All THREE of the Dixie Chicks suffer from Hoof in Mouth Disease.

First came Natilie Maines with her now infamous

"Just so you know, we're ashamed the president of the United States is from Texas."

Then in interviews over the newly released
"Taking The Long Way", which now sits on the Billboard Charts in Top Country Albums at #69 , Martie Maguire said,

" "But over the years, and especially since country music's turned into this redneck thing, it's become kind of a negative. I think for a while, a lot of artists were doing great things that ... were broadening the audience so that country was cool. ... So it makes me sad that it's kind of reverted back to a place that I'm not that proud of, and this is coming from a true country fan. I can't listen to the radio right now."

So it appears that Natlie is ashamed to be lumped together with Bush, by being from the same State, Martie is ashamed to be lumped together with rednecks and wants fans that are cool (does anyone recall Barbara Mandrell's song, I Was Country When Country Wasn't Cool?), andNOW Emily has stuck her foot down her throat with an unthinking statement about The View

Dixie Chicks' Emily Robison Apologizes to 'The View'

Thursday , May 25, 2006

By Michael Starr

Robison was quoted in Time's Dixie Chicks cover story as saying the group takes its politics very seriously - and how it asks itself, "What would Bruce Springsteen do?"

"Not that we're of that caliber, but would Bruce Springsteen do 'The View'? " Robison said

What difference does it make? One might ask what they say or think about Some Talk Show? It's real simple.

The comment infuriated the show's co-hosts, since "The View" gave The Dixie Chicks their big break in 1998. On Tuesday's show, Joy Behar tore the Time magazine article to shreds

We have some sayings down home about folks like this.

"Forgot where they come from"

"Think they are too good for Home folks"

I'd say the shoe fits and I hope the Chicks get to enjoy the taste of leather.

PS "While Taking The Long Way" Sits on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart at 69,

Toby Keiths last album White Trash With Money which peaked at #2 is now sitting at #4 on Top Country Albums, I will be updating this post as the Dixie Chicks album climbs until it peaks.

J. Freedom du Lac in Dixie Chicks Leave Their Old Country says

Despite the excess fingerprints, the album holds together exceptionally well -- save for the inclusion of "Bitter End," an ill-fitting Celtic waltz with a chorus ("Farewell to old friends/Let's raise a glass to the bitter end") that seems to have been designed specifically for future pub singalongs. Either that, or a kiss-off party for the Chicks' former fans.

I'd say it was the later JF, to paraphrase Zell Miller, the Fans did not leave the Dixie Chicks, the Dixie Chicks left the Fans, and told them to F^&% Off.

I sure don't think they really mean "Freedom, Understanding, Truth & Knowledge." , and anyone who ever bought that lame story, can be excused, they are not mentally competent, and more to be pitied than scorned.
