Dixie Chicks Redux

Imagine my non-surprise when I saw the not all that impressive, and strictly rated-G nudity of the Dixie Chicks on the cover of Entertainment Weekly, in an apparent attempt to highlight their plight after the backlash against vocalist Natalie Maines' comments criticizing President Bush at a concert in Great Britain.

The Chicks have now reduced themselves to the level of streakers--those people who use to pull stunts like running across a baseball field 'nekked' in the middle of the seventh-inning stretch. There you are at an event where people are happy and enjoying themselves, and some clown tries to ruin it all by bearing his fat ass in front of everyone.

Why, oh why must we suffer these women?
