Natalie Maines, one of the Dixie Chicks said onstage in London the other day, “Just so you know, we’re ashamed the President of the United States is from Texas.” This, in front of foreigners, in wartime. This is disgraceful, and apparently people are letting the group know, prompting an explanation. The group’s website, by way of justifying the insult, that “nothing more frightening than the notion of going to war with Iraq, and the prospect of all the innocent lives that will be lost.” Nothing? Really? Where were you girls on 9/11/01? Not in downtown New York City, I’m betting. Have you forgotten?
