Some insight into the minds of country’s leading female group as reported by MSNBC:

As for President Bush, the group is still angry about a comment he made. President Bush: “The Dixie Chicks are free to speak their mind. They can say what they want to say and … they shouldn’t have their feelings hurt, just because some people don’t want to buy their records when they speak out. I mean, you know, freedom is a two-way street.”

[Jaime] Gangel: “When you heard the president say that how did you feel?”

[Natelie] Maines [of the Dixie Chicks]: “My heart sunk.”

Gangel: “Because?”

Emily Robison [of the Dixie Chicks]: “He wasn’t standing up for the principles that our country are founded on….

Just what principle is that? Bush is correct in this context, freedom is a “two way street”, i.e., just as the Dixie Chicks have the freedom to use their podium and fame to promulgate their views, others have the right to not pay for and support that podium. Someone should sit the girls with Kid Rock.
