Dixie Chicks & Politics
I've remained mostly indifferent to the Dixie Chicks, but they've won me over. After all of their trouble over unfavourable comments directed at Bush the expectation was that they would aplogize unconditionally. They have not and have done a great job explaining why. From Salon: Chicks against the machine.
The Dixie Chicks beat back Diane Sawyer on national TV, posed nude for Entertainment Weekly and stood up to the reactionary zeal of country radio. In a time of crisis for America, they're patriots we can be proud of.
