Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks at a tour stop in London.
Now we all know that a bunch of sweaty pundits have
called Maines' comment treasonous. We also know that the same sweaty pundits put words in her mouth by claiming she doesn't "support the troops", especially when she said the opposite about the military. (Yes, the brownshirt country DJs said as much on last night's newscast.) What they don't bother to explain is how dissing Bush is "dissing America", as David Limbaugh, a beneficiary of affirmative action for inbred kin of sweaty pundits, claimed. Hell, her line ain't even a diss against Texas in her elevation of ordinary Texanfolk over the dim, carpetbagging former governor.
However, Maines' statement was BS, given that Shrub is from Connecticut, not Texas.
