A Quick Observation

Remember when the Dixie Chicks were hailed as First Amendment martyrs after facing a backlash for their comments about Bush the Younger?

Think the bien pensants are as stoked up for Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood’s musical Obamacare joke?

Yeah. Me neither.

(Full disclosure: I’m not a fan of any of the acts mentioned in this post, nor of contemporary mainstream country in general. My tastes in country run more to Buck Owens and other pre-countrypolitan stuff.)

  1. Hypocrisy, hypocrisy I tell you that Left-minded partisans choose to condemn or praise actions based on when the actions fit a left wing viewpoint. The amazing thing is that the same never happens on the Right.

      Did I say there was no backlash against the Dixie Chicks? Of course there was, but that doesn’t make them heroines. If it does, then Paisley/Underwood are no more or less heroic.

    A. Well, only one, but it takes a couple of thousand to buy the bulb, another couple of thousand to make up the bureau that will oversee the screwing, half a million to organize votes for it in a community of ten thousand, and a million or so to scream that what they really wanted wasn’t a lightbulb but an Obamaphone… Just sayin’…
