Dixie Chicks win. Game, set, match.

They sweep the Grammies. The Dunce of Kennebunkport goes down in history as easily one of the worst three presidents, making his dad look the second coming of FDR in comparison.

Now let' see how he feels when Al Gore wins a Nobel Peace Prize and Academy Award in the same year and The Decision-Making Decider scores a free trip to the Hague.

UPDATE: Wow, it turns out former President Carter also won a Grammy in the "spoken-word category." So now he has a Nobel and a Grammy. I think it's safe to say that George W. Bush will never win an award that has the word "peace" or phrase "spoken word" contained in it.

Loser.

I haven't seen this anywhere, but what would make Al get in the race? If Obama is moving up swiftly in the polls, would Gore be more likely to stay on the sidelines? What if no nr makes any headway against Hillary? I'd have to think the clamor would get even louder than it is now for Al to get in the race. It is interesting to think about.

I'm not a fan of country music, in fact, I just hate it. However, I'm so damned proud of those Dixie Chics for not letting the right wing fascists get the better of them. It takes a lot of guts to stand up to the music industry and tell them they are not going to let anyone keep them from their freedom of speech. If I had the stomach, I'd love to hear what Sean Hannity has to say about their win....he's probably crawling out of his skin! :-D

So, for today, I'll give country music a pass.

Jimmy go see Mike Stark's diary on this subject at Daily Kos which already has been recommended 500 times! I think their may just be that groundswell of support for Gore...The question is, does he want to do it.

And yes mary ellen, I am not a country-music fan either. But their winning was another important point for this country, because of its symbolism that the attempts to censor all opinion failed.

I actually like the Dixie Chicks. I may not make a habit out of playing country, but I like their new CD. I had it playing in the car today. They sure had real in your face time there. It's just beautiful!

Donnie - One of these days when I get a moment I will come over and have some fun with the troll. Not ignoring you, just trying to balance this blog, writing a book and taking care of my kid a few days a week...Not complaining, just don't want you to think I am ignoring your requests :)

"I think it's safe to say that George W. Bush will never win an award that has the word "peace" or phrase "spoken word" contained in it."

As much as I'd like to agree with you, Henry Kissinger did...

Still, it's great news about the Dixie Chicks. They deserve it!

The dixie chicks pretty much gave up on country music "fans". I have their album and it's def not country.

Now let' see how he feels when Al Gore wins a Nobel Peace Prize and Academy Award in the same year and The Decision-Making Decider scores a free trip to the Hague.

All this proves is that (a) the Grammies weren't about music but about politics (the Chicks have said they aren't country anymore) (b) the Oscars aren't about movies but politics and (c) the Nobel Peace Prize is a joke. Lots of nice symbols for the left, but ultimately meaningless.
