The Dixie Chicks' Natalie Maines apologized for disrespecting President George W. Bush during a London concert in 2003. But now, she's taking it back.Oh, baby .. I think I'm in luv. It's not everyday you wander across a woman who's both intelligent* and has a giant set of cojones.
"I don't feel that way anymore," she told Time magazine for its issue hitting newsstands Monday. "I don't feel he is owed any respect whatsoever."
* not that it takes a mental giant - anymore - to discern that President Quagmire is a waste of spaceOdds are the Fundamentalist Country Music fans (some of whom secretly adore the Dixie Chicks) will once again rise up from their double-wides and spew more hate. For me, well .. it's good to see someone stand up for their convictions, even if their fan base will sooner eat their own younguns than admit Their President is little more than a fool.
I read the item in the Fort Worth newspaper ("The Chicks are ticked") about how some CFRP members bullied radio stations into pulling their music off the air. That's all these
The fact that the radio stations caved in shows how spineless most of them are.
Hell, as much as I loathe country music, Natalie's stance makes me wanna run down to The Record Store and plunk down my last food stamps for their latest CD ("Taking the Long Way"). I wonder if it's available on anything but 8-track?
