I've been following the Dixie Chicks brouhaha
a bit although I'm not sure I've ever heard one of their songs. I can't help thinking about Gary Hart and his little problem during his last presidential run. Just like then much of the commentary was on the blatant stupidity of the whole thing. It's one thing for someone like Chrissy Hynde
to say stupid anti-American things – it's not like she has a career left to lose or her fans are strongly patriotic. But a country music act? Just flat out dumb.
Alledgedly the comments in question are considered by some to be the influence of Maines' Hollywood husband. I wonder what is said among the Chicks these days. What if you were part of a fantastically successfully musical trio and it was all ruined by some stupid public comments brought on by the stupidity of the fancy pants husband of one of the group? Is Maines' husband the next Yoko Ono?
