So not only are the Dixie Chicks ashamed of our President but now it looks like they are PETA supporters as well. But it looks like they thought better of it. According to the MSNBC article, the Chicks paid $10,000 to PETA to keep it hush-hush. It seems like they may have feared a backlash from their fans if word got out. Oops. But I guess they felt saying they were ashamed to be from the same state as President Bush was going to be just fine. Not a whole lot of IQ points between the three of them apparently. I bet the one they kicked out is kind of glad now.
Hmmmmm. A little backlash from the country and western community? Didn’t see that coming did you?
Now granted Miss Maines has every right to voice her opinions. Just as we as consumers have every right to make sure that her songs are not played on the radio and that her CD’s are not bought.
The Dixie Chicks tried giving what I feel is a half-hearted apology on their website but to me, it wasn’t really much of an apology. Plus the damage has already been done.
She said she was ashamed to be from the same state as President Bush. How can you explain that away? You can’t. You made your bed Miss Maines, now you have to lie in it.
