country gone mad

Oh. My. Gosh. I am so excited that country music is now one hundred percent all-authoritarian, all-the-time!
First, you know, the Dixie Chicks really ticked off a lot of people who, like, like living in America by saying they're ashamed of their president, which is, like, so unpatriotic and stuff, and, like fifty percent of the country voted for Bush, right, so nobody should be ashamed of him, okay?
Okay, well, never mind, because while I was writing this, the Dixie Chicks managed to issue an apology or two while still using the same publicity still, which is kind of weird, right?
But then there's their number one song, Travelin' Soldier, which I guess was written before the Dixie Chicks turned into communists, but maybe not if you look closely at the lyrics, because it talks about a soldier dying, as if that's all war was about, and doesn't talk about all the Vietnamese people who won their freedom because of that soldier, so maybe they were athiests back then, too?
But I burned my Dixie Chicks album yesterday anyhow, and now I mainly listen to songs by real Americans like Lee Greenwood, and did you hear about how there are at least some people who still stand up for what's right in this country, like that guy at the Houston Rodeo who beat up a foreign guy because he wouldn't stand to the national anthem of Proud to be an American? I'm proud that guy's an American.
So yeah, things are going okay, right? I'm just waiting around for the war to start and wondering if they might bomb some of the rock-'n'-roll stations in town, because a lot of their music sounds like it might question our leaders, and that's unconstitutional.
