Dixie Chicks Natalie Maines Calls Bush 'a Dumb F***'

In a new documentary premiered tonight at the Toronto Film Festival, Maines says of President Bush: "What a dumb f***."

[snip]

Maines told this reporter there never was a time when she thought of asking Kopple to edit her newest statement about Bush.

"Nope, we never would have done that," she said.

So since this was posted i have to comment. I am sure that alot of people are going to have something to say about her comment. I personally beleive she has a right to say and do whatever she wants. We are all entitled to our opinions whether or not we a Jane Nobody, movie celebrity or musical artist. The contreversy surrounding this has been so out of whack.
I like the Dixie Chicks and I can't see why they would be targeted for their comment when Madonna slams the president in much more vulger ways at her concert. Ask anyone who attended her concert in Mass recently...

Nah nah, takes one to know one.

Comments like theirs and Sean Penns are constitutionally protected and it is our right as citizens to call them dumb asses back if we want and to not support their artistic endeavors if we so choose. Gotta love free speech.

Little does she know...

that masquerading as a plain spoken person, or dumb fcuk is GW's secret weapon.

She's stupid for not realizing it, as are most of the Dumocrat leadership.

There is no greater insult to a persons intelligence than the use of ones entertainment
performance as a vehicle for political speech free or not.

The act is based on the foundation that the speaker because of their status is smarter than the
dumb asses who bought there overpriced tickets and can be subjected to a haranque such as this one.

Leading one to ask what the hell is this person going to do after "W" is out of office.
Remember Maine born Vaughn Meader, he had a short career imitating JFK,until 11/23/63!
Ditto. N. Mains. May her freedom be long lived and her career shortened by her mouth!

Who cares? She's just a dumb **** herself!

As to the focus on her vs. Madonna and the MTV set, the reason is obvious. The Chicks have (or had) a very large red state base. We expect the rock and rollers to trash repubs. It is a bit more newsworthy when a red-state-dependent performer does it.

I like the Chicks music but I will excersize my free speech by not purchasing their music.

Who cares what she thinks, she's a singer. Who cares what Mel Gibson says about Jews, he's an actor. Why do we care what people have to say simply because they're famous. But for the record, I agree with her, he's not the sharpest tool in the shed.

I won't be surprised if in the not too distant future the other two Dixie Chicks file suit against the Littlest Bigmouth for tanking their careers.

WOW, THANKS FNG, AT LEAST SOMEONE GETS IT...
REALLY.....IT'S NOT ABOUT THE MUSIC THEY SING AND IT'S NOT ABOUT WHO SHE COMMENTS ABOUT...IT'S ABOUT FREEDOM OF SPEECH.....I LIKE THEM, BUT THAT IS NOT WHY I AM HERE MAKING COMMENTS...I JUST THINK IT'S CRAZY THAT ANYONE MAKES A BIG DEAL OUT OF WHAT N.MAINES HAS TO SAY WHEN THERE IS SLANDER ALL AROUND US FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE....I PAID TO SEE THEM RECENTLY IN BOSTON, AND I WILL PAY TO SEE THEM AGAIN...THEY ARE MUSICIANS AND THEY ARE TALENTED AS ALL GET OUT...IN MY OPINION...THAT IS MY RIGHT! ALONG WITH MY PREFERENCE...OTHERS HAVE THEIR PREFERENCE AND I AM CONVINCED THAT IF THE ONES WHO DON'T LIKE THE DIXIE CHICKS JUST SAT BACK FOR A MINUTE AND IMAGINED THAT THEIR PREFERRED MUSICIAN MADE A COMMENT SUCH AS N.MAINES, THEY WOULD BE IN AGREEEMENT.......

I like their music, and bought a couple of their CDs BEFORE Maines made a fool of herself in England. I haven't bought any since because I am not going to add to the fortune of someone who uses that fortune to publically present ideas I disagree with. I do not have the opportunity to challenge her directly, and will probably NEVER have the opportunity to even meet her, so I refuse to contribute to her so she can shriek her hatred for the Land I love. Same reason I no longer purchase Cheryl Crowe music, and don't attend very many movies. I know it probably sounds futile, but it makes me feel better.

MsMitchell, Please stop shouting. Posting in all caps indicates that you are yelling at us.

But I do somewhat disagree. I dislike when any entertainment figure uses their pulpit to inform the rest of us of their political leanings. Just because they have a stage and media attention doesn't make them political commentators. They abuse that privledge, regardless of who it is. I agree mostly with Ted Nugent, but still find it annoying. Yes, they all most certainly have freedom of speech, just like everyone else, who have a right to criticize them for it. Consumers also have a right to choose to not purchase their products due to their statements as well. All in all, asking who cares misses the point, obviously they care about their own opinions and the people giving them a forum to spew their rhetoric also care. It is also well within others rights who disagree to care, as Maines and others certainly have an impact upon some people who are their fans. The unfortunate fact is that many of these people who will be swayed by Maines et al. are not going to go out and get actual information on issues, they are going to form their opinions upon comments such as Maines.

Hey you with the big brown vaguely familiar looking thing emerging from the Wrong End of your digestive tract - I agree.

Those who gather a lot of publicity for relatively little effort sometimes think they are gifted in all areas - I'm sure it's the same curse of pride we all face.

Has the former little fat one ever yelled her vacant opinion from any US stage? I say vacant because I've heard herself and others defend her but I'll be danged if I can find out what if any opinion she actually has. It seems, beyond the titillating thrill of screaming F*** into a microphone and getting a lot of applause from servile socialist foreigners, there is little else.

Of course she's welcome to an opinion, but foul language is not one.

Anyone that thinks Bush is dumb would have to have a pretty small IQ themself. Should we compare Bush's educational accomplishments to those of Maines, FNG, ............ Fighter pilot and elected governor of Texas and to the presidency of the USA twice....... an obvious dolt........HAHAHAHA

Maines statement means nothing, basically the same dribble as been coming from the whacko left for years now.

Kris,
Don't ever confuse educational accomplishments with intelligence, the two often have very little to do with each other. As far as being elected president, that is still a gray area.

True, but when you combine his educational accomplishments with his life accomplishments, I feel pretty secure in saying the liberals calling him stupid are far dumber than him.

I only have a private pilots license and can only imagine the what you would have to go through to fly a fighter plane and operate all the weapons systems associated with that.

[i]Editor’s Note: Six concerts only for 2007? Either the Dixie Chicks are doing very well or very bad.[/i]

Eagles and Dixie Chicks a well-matched double bill
By Erik Pedersen
Fri Oct 19, 9:15 PM ET

The six-night run represents the Chicks' only 2007 concerts. The show started about 20 minutes late. Natalie Maines: "Only in L.A. would people pay $300 a ticket and be half an hour late."

The biggest crowd response was for "Not Ready to Make Nice," the "comeback" single in response to the beating at country radio in the wake of Maines' anti-Bush comments.

The Chicks took the stage to strains of "Hail to the Chief."

HA! [url=http://www.coyotedrifters.com]We've played more shows[/url] than that (OK, we're not playing arenas, and it's only $10 to get in, but hey....).

Like tonight [url=http://www.thompsoncenter.net]at Thompson's in Union[/url] -- you won't hear us talk smack about the troops or the Prez. We know our job is to shut up and make people laugh and dance.

Art and politics have always been intertwined.

Hitler was a painter. That doesn't mean I have prints of his art made and I put them up all over my house because "although I don't care for his politics, I do like his paintings."

Freedom of speech. I will buy their albums...not because of their politics...but because I love their songs.

The works of Strauss and Wagner, musical geniuses, were banned in Israel for years.

NICE :D :D I think by stupid we are not talking about IQ but by stupid policies decisions that were made and are still being make. I need to agree.

FYI, I do not agree with a lot of what Fred Thompson says but I still watch Law and Order :D
