"The Dixie Prix"

When the "Dixie Chicks" were in London for a concert before the last Presidential election they announced from the stage that they were ashamed to be from the same state as President Bush. For criticizing the president they were hounded off country radio and denounced by neo-nuts and republican politicians alike. Their complaint was not what they said but from where they said it. It seems that what was seen as an attack on the president from a foreign country was close to an act of treason.
Now as we see the President of the United States attacking the democrat's from not one foreign country but numerous countries, where is the outrage? And where are all the talking heads and radio pundits with their false indignation? Where are the Congressman, who represent more cows than people, with their outrage at a public official making unpatriotic attacks on a part of the US government? Not one of them have called the President on the carpet for being unpatriotic. No one has refused to air the Presidents treasonous statements from foreign soil.
We are at war and we can debate that war between ourselves (and should) but is it right for anyone to take that debate thousands of miles from home and air our dirty laundry in front of a foreign audience?

Isn't Bush making a statement from a foreign country whenever he speaks from Crawford? I mean...I've been through that part of Texas, and it seems pretty foreign to me.

Nope, I'm wrong. Texas voted to stay in the union back in the lat 90's. Oh that it could have been different...

I think the dems are letting the Reugs self implode at this point- Torture , White phosphorus, and Woody's latest revelations, and Dick and George having little shitfits all over....and how many of it's "elite" being investigated for criminal activity: Frist, Delay, now Blunt, and Coingate in Ohio, and Aramahoff, etc etc....
( The Titanic would be out of deck chairs by now....)
