Dixie Cups

I have never been a big fan of the Dixie Chicks. Their music sounds like corporate packaging as oppose to heart felt. They lack the emotion of someone like Reba McIntyre. While I am not ashamed they are from Texas, I am not proud of that fact either. In their attempt to get out of the PR problem they caused themselves they have bared their bodies on a magazine cover and "bared" their feelings to Diane Sawyer. Both efforts appear to be more packaging than substance. The photo shows their bodies covered in graffiti. The interview sounds like a non apology for remarks they acknowledge were wrong. The nonsense about a lack of compassion by President Bush is utterly ridiculous. What can be more compassionate than freeing millions of people from the clutches of a truly murderous despot?

They need to come to grips with the fact that the "questions" they had about the liberation of Iraq, where the product of wrong thinking on the issue. While they acknowledge they were disrepectful of the President, they do not acknowledge they were wrong about the war. I think it is unlikely they can get many of their fans back performing naked. As for those who think they are getting unfair treatment because they exercised their right to free speech, just look at how those who favor enforcement of sodomy laws are treated. Did Anita Bryant and Dr. Laura have their freedom of speech infringed because of their views on the homosexual lifestyle? If you are going to argue you point of view in a public debate, those who do not agree with you have the right to be not only critical of you but to reject your commercial business also.
