Why I Love Country Music

One Girls Life had a good post (may not be safe for work) on the Dixie Chicks response to critisism for saying they were ashamed that Dubbya came from Texas. It was to pose nude on the cover of Entertainment Weekly. Very yummy. You can also find other news on this story (and slightly larger pictures) by searching google news. Now to find a high res version of that picture for my wallpaper…. πŸ™‚

Go chicks! I support you and your nudity 110%!

  1. I live in Nashville, and you can’t imagine how big this is down here. I think there is one very important lesson that needs to be learned from all of this. If you make your living by selling primarily to a group of slack-jawed, intollerant yokels, then you’re better off keeping your trap shut. Just because one has the right to say something doesn’t mean it’s prudent to do so. On the flip side, Michael Moore can pretty much get away with it because his bread is buttered by people who more or less agree with him. The Chicks don’t enjoy that luxury.
    Don’t get me wrong, I agree with what they said, and I’ll defend their right to say it. But people do need to wake up and realize that just because you have the right to do a thing, it doesn’t follow that doing that thing makes sense.
    Overall though, I do like the Chicks’ response. They’re pulling the old Homer Simpson bait and switch. I guarantee you that all over the South right now you’ll hear something like, “Damn pinko, commie, trait…..mmmmmmmmmm…….boobies.”

  2. Michael Moore had some really good comments regarding the whole Dixie Chicks thing… within a week, the radio stations stopped banning their songs, and record sales soared as a result of being banned in the first place.
    It turned out for the Dixie Chicks that being banned was one of their best promotions. The best way to make people want something is to tell them they can’t have it. πŸ™‚
