Now Take the Dixie Chicks--PLEASE!
They say that travel opens one's mind. In the case of the Dixie Chicks, a trip to Europe seems to open their minds until their brains fall out. On an overseas tour to promote their latest album, as reported here, the Chicks gave an interview to the UK's Telegraph, in which they attacked other country artists for being patriotic. Natalie Maines said, "The entire country may disagree with me, but I don't understand the necessity for patriotism. Why do you have to be a patriot? About what? This land is our land? Why? You can like where you live and like your life, but as for loving the whole country... I don't see why people care about patriotism."
Perhaps because such people recognize the opportunities that their country has given them, Ms. Maines. France, please offer these ladies French citizenship, so they can surround themselves with like-minded people, at least until the Islamists take over. Oh, and Ms. Maines, when you leave, please take Alec Baldwin with you. We are still waiting for him to make good on his promise.
