Dixie Chicks Back to Bashing Bush

Ok, This is not really a political comment as much as a "do entertainers really have a brain or are they puppets and is it all just promotion."

First the Dixie Chicks bash Bush, then they appoligize, now they are sorry they appologized? Do these people have brains? Do they have positions they are willing to stand up for? Do they stick with a position when the going get's rough and people don't agree? T

Or, do they just blow in the direction of the record buying public wind?

Ok, back to work.

When did they ever apologize? And if they were blowing in the direction of Country music fans, they would never say anything against the GOP.

what irritates me more than anything is "rock" stars thinking their commentary on world affairs means anything.

Live 8 for example was run by the Commission for Africa, with Bob Geldof leading the parade. Don't get me wrong here, it was a great event and brought a lot of awareness to global issues. However, the Commission for Africa was set up by Tony Blair, who had decided alongside Gordon Brown to cancel the debt through the Commission for Africa long before Live 8. However, Live 8 provided a platform for Bob, Bono and Paul McCartney to portray themselves as the saviours of the 3rd world. It was a lot of PR and spin, and makes me detest those 3 guys even more.

good.

By the way, the Dixie Chicks are amazing and have a sound and mastering of modern Blue Grass and roots 'country' well above anything else considered Country in today's Fake Country music market.

I'm fairly certain this thread wasn't started about whether he deserved it or not. Rather, it was started about whether musicians can make up their minds and whether they do it all for the publicity.

Well, I don't think they would have been any fuss if the dixie chicks were praising Dubbya.

Which is the point - they're country singers, and 99% of country singers fall to Bush's feet and worship him

I don't see why anyone cares really. Musicians, actors, etc. Their opinions hold no weight with me. I can make up my own mind about things.
