I don't know where the guy gets off with the "insert foot" remark - The Dixie Chicks were the first group to stand up to the jingoistic horseshit the right wing tried to impose on this country as they attempted to equate dissent with being unpatriotic. Inspite of Bush's Clear Channel, Fox News and Infinity Broadcasting Co's attempt to financial ruin them and hold CD burning parties and boycotts, those women stuck to their guns and showed the world how real Americans act when fascists attempt to take out rights away. I don't even listen to country music and I went out and bought two of their albums - pretty darn good music, too. Instead of "sticking their foot in there mouths" they stuck it up the right wing's butt.

(side note : wow u sure are a little "left" oriented) Anyways, they are far from the first group to stand up to conservitives.

Oscars? Dumb, stupid, and 2.3 moronic. Who has time for the generic hollywood oscar bait films that try to pass themself off as some form of freakin' art. Crap movies for a crap nation.

I thought it was funny that Sean Penn can't take a joke about Jude Law. But CR stood up to the bar brawler and had the last "on-air" word.

He was certainly a lot more likable as Spicoli... [:D]

Stuck to their guns? They started apologising to President Bush immediately after they said it! Too late, dumb assed comment=career suicide. THE DITZY TWITS! Most country stations to this day still won't play them, especially in Texas. Do you see them touring the U.S.? No! I imagine you keep your big liberal, hippy, mouth shut there too! If you're smart, uh scared... http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/902036/posts

That's cute. Did you think of that all by yourself or did you hear it on Sean Hannity's show? What scathing wit!

RE: THE OSCARS

The Dixie Chicks definately DID NOT have a popularity surge after their remarks. I happen to have the largest ticket brokerage firm in the country, and let me tell you, after their remarks, their concert ticket sales went right down the toilet. Brokers all over the country took a beating on that tour. The lackluster sales were directly attributable to their remarks. They played to half filled venues, the rest of the tour.

RE: THE OSCARS

The three top country stations here in Phoenix/Scottsdale refuse to play anything by them. They didn't even make those remarks here in the U.S. because they knew that they would get booed, and people would start walking out. They did it in London. They might as well move there now. They won't live it down here.[:0]

You watch Hannity? Good! Starting to see any light yet?
