Pardon My French

By

But I can’t resist – it seems the Dixie Clits were the focus of that music industry masturbatory fantasy they call the Grammy Awards. I would have watched, but my toenails were having a growth spurt and it was simply that much more fascinating to watch. That the Police were probably the best thing going tells you something about the state of the music industry today. Not that the Police weren’t great in their day – and they’re still excellent musicians – but why go on tour when you need another roadie just to carry the hair pieces and rejuvenation cream?

I didn’t watch the Grammy awards tonight, but was switching channels around 11 and kept the dial on CBS long enough to see the Dixie Chicks win for song of the year and for album of the year.

And they wonder why the music industry is in trouble.

Yes, the web hurts them badly, but there’s more to it than that. See Lorie Byrd for more. And also The American Mind.

    Hmm, well, at least Dan acknowledged the existence of the clitoris.
    It’s a start…

    Dixie Clits? You are one creepy misogynist. Oh, and you shouldnt talk about hair pieces.

    Anna Nicole had more class than those 3 skanks combined..RIP Anna!

    Anna Nicole had class?? Hahaha. But then, you rednecks believed that there were WMDs, so anything is possible.

    Politics 101: Dimwited Liberal Hollywood Ditwits Award Dixie Dits With Big Win At Grammys

    As Lorie Bird points out, The wins were widely predicted, and were not surprising considering who does the voting. Dan Riehl is unimpressed. Ragnar has the Dits’ number at Jawa Report. And I could give a s**t less. These entertainment people live in a …

  10. Dixie Chicks Win Five Grammys

    The Dixie Chicks have been known more for their politics than their music the last four years, so it should have come as no surprise that they won five Grammy awards last night.
    After death threats, boycotts and a cold shoulder from the country music …

  11. Kite says:

    Weeellll…I’m not going to go as far as claiming that Anna Nicole was the classy chick on the street but you know….im not throw her under the bus either.
    But i find it amusing that your the judge on whats classy and whats not Bob. I can obviously tell by your views on this blog your a liberal and at last check that was the “Baby-killin’, Gun stealin’, Tree-huggin’, commiunist” group thats currently trying to destroy this country.
    Yeaaaahhh…you sure sound like YOU should be the one who decides whats classy and whats not.

  12. Darth Malice says:

    At least Anna never undermined our nation…..The left hates country you dumb chicks,that’s right tick off your audience you hefers.

  13. Buzzy says:

    Strange that the Dixie Chicks won a grammy when they couldn’t hardly sell a ticket to their last tour. I saw that they were going to be the show along with Al Gore and decided to read Newt Gingrich’s book instead.

  14. MFA says:

    Clits RULE!

  15. Legalize says:

    “Strange that the Dixie Chicks won a grammy when they couldn’t hardly sell a ticket to their last tour.”
    Actually their tour, their movie, and their new record did very well in terms of sales. But don’t let being full of shit stop you.
    “I saw that they were going to be the show along with Al Gore and decided to read Newt Gingrich’s book instead.”
    There’s clue #1.

  16. johanna says:

    now that mr bush is at 30%, the chicks are HEROES!!! but i especially like ludacris’ slam on bill o’reilly!! the audience exploded with applause!

  17. Legalize says:

    How did Anna Nicole Smith become the new winger darling? Hmm:
    1. Money-grubbing.
    2. Not particularly bright, interesting, creative, talented, articulate, well-read, etc.
    3. Junkie.
    All of the elements are present.

  18. darcy_lane says:

    I prefer “Ditzy Chicks”, really, your formulation doesn’t make sense. Its not even really an insult to call someone a “clit”, as opposed to ass or dickhead :p
    Also, now will they stfu about being ‘repressed’ and ‘punished’ for their outspokeness?

  19. Legalize says:

    “Also, now will they stfu about being ‘repressed’ and ‘punished’ for their outspokeness?”
    I suppose that depends on whether or not they continue to get death threats from members of the Party of Life.

  20. Kite says:

    Hell, i’ll take the politics out of it. Their music is just plain awful and the whole “I’m such a bad girl and im not a goody goody” routine is just so…UGH.
    The fact that they won any grammys is astaounding to me, but then again “My Humps” by The Black Eyed Peas beat (Cable Car) by The Fray…soooo…that should tell you alot about who’s doing the actual voting. I mean…their abyssmal sales and vacant tour stops should have been a great indication that they pretty much suck, but noooooo they get a grammy anyways.
    Same goes with the Academy Awards…doesnt matter that some of these movies didn’t even make back what they cost to make…ohhh noooo…they “made a point” and it was the BESHT M0V1E EVAR! Stupid ignorant voting masses….*grumble grumble*

  21. TheSpartan says:

    Too bad that can’t all articulate like Toby Keith.

  22. tbogg says:

    “Yes, the web hurts them badly, but there’s more to it than that.”
    Please explain. Your cultural insights are eagerly awaited.
    This ought to be good.

  23. TheSpartan says:

    “Same goes with the Academy Awards…doesnt matter that some of these movies didn’t even make back what they cost to make…ohhh noooo…they “made a point” and it was the BESHT M0V1E EVAR! Stupid ignorant voting masses….*grumble grumble*”
    So awards should be decided by sales? Good movies/music etc that are missed by the mainstream are highlighted by these awards as they should be. If it were all about sales we’d see nothing but teeny bopper bands getting awards. I think it’s sad when bad films like Titanic are rewarded by the academy fgor their mediocrity when there are about a half dozen movies that year that were better.

  24. LOL says:

    LOL DIXIE CLITS ROFFLJAKLFHALOLAHAOLAHAOHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA
    comic genius. wow how far does your bitterness towards women extend..?

  25. richard says:

    Damn, Dan made a funny! Sidesplittingly hilarious, and so…so…so clever! How come I didn’t think of that? Riehl-ly funny.
    Really, Dan. Aren’t you ashamed of yourself?

  26. templar knight says:

    Hmm…I wonder if any of you dopeheads had ever even heard of the Dixie Chicks before Natalie’s little comment over in London. I didn’t think so. But I’m sure they thank you for your support, and the rest of moonbat nation. They received their reward last night, you will abandon them, and they will sink into oblivion.

  27. Kite says:

    Whats wrong with basing awards upon success? Isn’t that the point of your work? I mean..sure…sometimes someone will make a movie to make a point, but is that the ONLY reason you work? Nope. Most people get in to the business for the fame and fortune and THATS FINE.
    The new Pirates movie…made like….400+ million. Last I checked it was a huge success story over another movie such as….Little Miss Sunshine. Why shouldnt a success be awared with some recognition?
    Last movie that WASNT a wide-spread blockbuster that was DESERVING of an Academy Award (it SHOULD have been nominated for best picture) was Pan’s Labyrinth. Watch it and I dare you to disagree with me.

  28. LOL says:

    if theres one thing that likely bothers dan more than the dixie chicks, it’s hip hop.
    Hahahah i love watching wingers squirm painfully at the sight of it.
    And all this “the dixie chicks tour didn’t make any money” nonsense
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dixie_Chicks_discography
    Hmm… they’ve had 6 #1 songs… Their 2006 Album reached #1 on sales charts
    so ok, perhaps they aren’t selling out concerts the way the ludacris, jay-z , or even the rolling stones still do, but i dont think they’re broke. It’s certainly false to claim no-one’s listening to their music!
    Haha, but whatever wingers, at least a hip hop artist didn’t win. There’s a whole slice of american culture that is inscrutable for you.

  29. Kite says:

    Actually Templar they won FIVE awards. That just shows you how far the lunacy of the judging community has progressed.

  30. TheSpartan says:

    Kite I haven’t seen Pan’s Labrynth but I’ll check it out. Pirates was a fun movie that made tons of money, but it’s not great film making by any stretch. Little Miss Sunshine is a great story with fantastic acting performances and it was one of the best movies I saw this year.
    Success is one factor, but quality is another. The Backstreet Boys broke all sorts of sales records, are you going argue that they produced the best music of their era?
    Elvis outsold Bach and Mozart, is he a better musician? Just because something has mass appeal does not mean that it’s quality.

  31. scarshapedstar says:

    “Hmm…I wonder if any of you dopeheads had ever even heard of the Dixie Chicks before Natalie’s little comment over in London. I didn’t think so. But I’m sure they thank you for your support, and the rest of moonbat nation. They received their reward last night, you will abandon them, and they will sink into oblivion.”
    Yeah, okay. They’re terrified that their base of support, “moonbat nation”, has shrank to… let’s see… 216 out of 300 million Americans. Wouldn’t want to be in their shoes!
    Speaking of real ‘Murican country artists, did anyone catch this?
    “[Toby] Keith doesn’t support the Iraq war — “Never did,” he says — and he favors setting a time limit on the occupation.”
    Bwahaha! Even Mr. Boot-up-your-ass has jumped ship. Quick, call for a boycott!

  32. jerry says:

    That’s it, this blog has become too uncivil — I am out of here.

  33. templar knight says:

    scar, did you ever buy their music prior to Natalie’s statement? Or have you bought any since, or do you steal people’s music over the internet?

  34. Darth Malice says:

    Legal Anna was good at being a girl….The chicks are good at being unattractive crows…..Anna was good for the economy:)

  36. bordo says:

    Haw, haw, haw. Whatta card. As if Dan Riehl has ever seen or licked a clit in his pathetic Cheetoh snarfing life. Must really upset him and his merry band of misogynists. The Chicks get richer. He gets dumber. If that’s possible.

  37. templar knight says:

    Well, it’s off to work for me. I am left to wonder if there is a single liberal who works for a living? Champion of the working man that they are, I’ll ponder that while reading the log on that new well we made. We might just have to drill an offset. Adios, kids!

  38. Darth Malice says:

    Later templer….I will be adding my pay to the welfare state in a few hours……Work harder…..millions of dems are counting on us to prop up the welfare state.

  39. I suppose it would be too much to ask that the next time that this asshole (that means you, Dan) goes on TV to give his “expert” opinion on something, that the interviewer would bring up your calling these women the Dixie Clits.
    Every time I think you can’t possibly get any stupider, Dan, you post again, and you prove me wrong.

  40. Robert says:

    I’d have to agree with you on one thing… I’m sure you are an expert in masturbatory fantasy.

  41. Kite says:

    TheSpartan – Well, I must say I agree with you on that to a point. Some movies that don’t sell well can be better than some summer blockbusters, but the frustrating part is that most of the big sellers really don’t get any recognition other than the paychecks. Which, I guess if you made 400+ million on a movie you wouldn’t care either way, but most critics/reviewers just bash the hell out of the best sellers and then complain that some preachy short-film didn’t get the money they claim it deserves.
    The point I make is that most award programs such as the SAG’s, Oscars, Emmys, Grammys are “tainted” by biased judges and voters. It just so happens that those awards are controlled by a majority of liberal leftists. It wouldn’t be right if a bunch of right-wing bible thumpers ran the show either….it’s just not geared towards building a pure academy.
    Example: Brokeback Mountain. Why was it nominated for so many awards? Was it because it did so well in the box office? Was it because it was a GREAT movie? Both of those answers are a resounding NO. It was recognised simply for the fact it “broke bold boundaries and explored forbidden themes” It wasnt awarded upon its weight as a good film….it was nominated because it was “bold”. Personally, that shouldn’t be how a film is graded. The acting was pitiful and the story itself was droll…
    Crash was an example of a perfect movie. It invoked alot of themes and thoughts amongst people while not being so intense that you just couldn’t connect or felt mad. It explored the aspects of racism but it didn’t make you feel like a racist while watching it. The music was phenomenal, acting was powerful, and the feel and pace of the story was placed just right to keep you interested till the end. It made a point, but it didnt cram it down your throat.
    Lets go back to the Dixie Chicks. Can the sing? Yes, they do show some shred of talent but they aren’t the greatest female artists on the circuit. You have to ask…how exactly did they make their fame? Was it their powerful and moving music? Not really…
    In all truth they gained their fame (or infamy) by opening their mouths and screaming about the president. The Hollywood crowd…hates the president. They get nominated for top grammy awards (despite the fact their sales were far lower than some of their opponents) and got those awards.
    It’s a biased award show. If it was run by a bunch of right-wing church guys and they nominated some christian-rock group against a hard rock group like say…Tool and they awarded the church rock group based on their own personal views…it would still be wrong. The point i’m trying to make is we have grand awards being given out to mediocre artists but because those artists will support their personal agendas….they get the big awards while someone else more deserving gets left out in the cold.

  42. Scott says:

    Referring to women as the body parts is a Conservative value. Well done!

  43. splashtc says:

    Flipping the channels and saw D.C. win -imm. knew it was political and continued flipping. Awards are made up B.S.-it’s always only about the $. Funny though how these artists are all available at walmart and target. No conflict of interest there.

  44. scott says:

    Kite —
    The Dixie Chicks already had sold millions of records before their off the cuff remark about the President. Secondly, they actually are talented. Honest. Not my cup of tea entirely, but their talent is really without question.
    The fact is most musicians steer clear of political statements and the award shows are not political theater insofar as the industry is about making entertainment product with the broadest possible appeal (that would be politically neutral, wouldn’t it?). 99.99% of the acts at the Grammys have nothing to say about politics. Period. If you see leftist liberal hobgoblins backstage at the Grammys, you should take a little breather.

  45. Bill Adkins says:

    The bumper stickers say, “The Dixie Chicks Were Right.” They replace the ones with “Don’t Blame Me, I voted for {insert name}”

  46. scott says:

    Incidentally, the majority of the public is against the war.

  47. smedley says:

    Sorry, Kite, but the Chicks won 4 Grammies in 2003 BEFORE the controversy. So, your point about them gaining fame for opening their mouths is just plain wrong.

  48. TheSpartan says:

    “Was it because it was a GREAT movie? Both of those answers are a resounding NO.”
    Did you see Brokeback Mountain? It was a great movie, the writing and acting on all counts was phenomenal. Heath Ledger is positioning himself as one of the great actors of this generation. Just because you don’t like the subject matter doesn’t mean it wasn’t good filmmaking.

  49. charles says:

    people actually watch that (Grammy)shit?
    personally i don’t like the chix, that kind of music never appealed to me, and whatever awards they may or may not win don’t really matter in the grand scheme of things
    what i do get a kick out of is the monkey poo flinging of the trolls posting in the comments here all day, every day at a site which they proclaim to hate and the people that they insist are not worth arguing with
    what would they do without you Dan?
    i am singularly unimpressed with their lack of intellectual acumen
    willfully obtuse and vile auto contrarians who march in lockstep to the orders of the “great leftist collective”
    whatever happened to individuality? i think it was bowled over by pc social engineering

  50. Kite says:

    Musicians steer clear of political statements? Really? Let’s review.
    Nine Inch Nails – During the last few years they were invited to play at the MTV music awards. They originally planned to play the song “The Hand that Feeds” with a modified picture of President Bush on a giant screen behind them. Although it was changed at the last minute….they still tried.
    Green Day – A constant vocal voice against the Administration. Their new album has many political allusions within it. Although they don’t bash them during their shows (at least not that i’ve heard) they have constantly spoke out against the administration.
    Barbara streisand – I don’t even have to name all of the times she has used her public image to bad mouth the president.
    Dixie Chicks – See current topic and their past records for reference. We should all be familiar with it.
    Kanye West – His infamous “Bush doesnt care about black people” comment. He has since then melted down.
    Lets see about the movie stars.
    Matt Damon – Said if he could pay for Kerry to win the election he would have.
    George Clooney – Constant critic of the administration. Uses his public image to also push forwards global warming and enviromentalism.
    Leonardo DiCaprio – See George Clooney above.
    ———————————————–
    Back to music shall we?
    Creedence Clearwater Revival – It’s a stretch back in to the 70’s and before but they used their music to speak out against governmental establishments.
    Tool – Have used ALL of their albums to one way or another bash religious faith (mainly judeo-christian) and have make political stunts spoofing the Bush administration and then making fun of Jesus. (in the form of a april fools joke).
    Now, these people have the right to say what they want too. The first amendment protects their right to complain about whatever they want…so i’m not saying they should be silenced. What I AM SAYING is that TONS of entertainers use their public images to push forwards political and social agendas. It’s nothing new and to say that most artists AVOID political statements is just incorrect.

  51. markg8 says:

    The same people who think the Dixie Chicks don’t make money anymore think our soldiers still support Bush policy in Iraq.

  52. MFA says:

    “Its not even really an insult to call someone a “clit”…”
    It is if one is afraid of, and therfore hostile toward, women.
    The first step in allowing yourself to hate a group of individuals is to dehumanize them. Reducing them (via labeling, as Mr Riehl does here) to portions of their genitalia is an attempt to reduce his own fear by making them less human (pieces, not persons) and–given the associative location of the clitoris–make himself feel more powerful because, given his presumed heterogenous equipmrnt, he would be able to penetrate their defenses.
    Poor sad little man. Therapy is indicated.

    Jesus. You guys get stupider with every breath.

  54. scarshapedstar says:

    “It’s nothing new and to say that most artists AVOID political statements is just incorrect.”
    Kite – 7 bands/artists? You’re a long way from “most”. Although, I must admit, you left out Britney’s “I think we should, like, totally do whatever the President, like, says, and stuff?”
    Now THAT’S a political statement!

  55. charles says:

    “Jesus. You guys get stupider with every breath.”
    “what i do get a kick out of is the monkey poo flinging of the trolls posting in the comments here all day, every day at a site which they proclaim to hate and the people that they insist are not worth arguing with”
    heh

  56. Bat Guano says:

    Dan,
    Grow up, willya? You are so predictable.

  57. TheSpartan says:

    The truth is that political commentary has existed in art for most of recorded time (Euripedes anyone?) and will continue to do so. Yes, Kite named 7 but you could name 70 others from the past 20 years if you chose to.

  58. Why Darth Malice, I often wondered where my favorite winger troll wondered off to. Wow Darth, you really have gotten your circuits watered down now haven’t you? We often wondered about you. I noticed that an attempt to read your profile at Freeperville revealed that you were banned. Good Gawd buddy, how does a right wing loon get banned there?
    BTW, did you ever change your mind about letting your kid enlist in the military? You remember that conversation right? The one where you refused to let your kid enlist because he might end up in the war that you claimed to support? He’s American right? So did you let him fight for democracy?
    I know you remember me, your favorite MARINE! You know, the one that called you out for the hypocrite you were being? Nice to see that you still think the same. Always good for a laugh! Or not!

  59. mitch says:

    This has got to be the single most nauseating attempt at wordplay in the history of the English language. Carrot Top must be rolling in his grave.
    Wait, Carrot Top’s dead, right? Please say yes.

  60. scarshapedstar says:

    Really, “clit” is kind of a bizarre insult. “Dixie Tits” would have made more sense if he wanted to call them airheads or something. Or maybe “Dixie Twats” for the classic “Boys haff a penis, an’ girls haff a vagina! Man strong and penetrating, woman weak and yielding!” effect.
    But “clit”… hmm. Let me put on my Charles Krauthammer hat. Ah! Okay. Dan, like many white Republican males, suspects that he is the victim of a cosmic injustice: a whole lot of people (the ones with clits) have better orgasms than he does! Or at least more of them. Who can blame him, really? That thoroughly unsatisfying 2-minute unlubed jerk to “Anal Bukkake 7″ night after night just leaves him feeling dirty, in both the literal and the metaphorical sense, although it does at least help him fall asleep on those nights when he just can’t… stop… posting… until the sun starts coming up again. He wonders what it would be like to be… a woman. Yeah, he could masturbate for hours and not feel dead inside afterwards, not even have to grab a towel! He’s read about those multiple orgasms.
    Lousy luck. Shit, if he were a woman, he probably wouldn’t even have to sleep alone. They have it so fucking easy. Them and their goddamn clits…

  61. TheSpartan says:

    How about The Dixie Wecked?

  62. feckless says:

    Uncivil bigot.

  63. spencer says:

    Dixie Clits?
    That’s the best you can do? What are you, in seventh grade?
    Yep, good ol’ Dan Riehl and the right . . . all class, all the time.

  64. Rob Kaufman says:

    This couldn’t be the same Mr. Riehl who whined about uncivil Mr. Stark was for holding up the,”Hannity sucks ass” sign could it? And you wonder why no rational person takes you seriously Dan?

  65. dave says:

    What a stupid fucking idiot you are.

  66. David says:

    The linked Reuters article (“Stars set to party at Grammys while sales slide”) typically misses the meat of the problem,
    “Every day brings more bad news for the $21 billion industry, which cannot work out how to get fans to pay $18 for a CD instead of stealing music from the Web.”
    The truth of the matter is that $18 (or $36) CDs would sell, if they were worth the money. The manufactured crap that’s offered by much of the recording industry in place of music is often not even worth stealing.

  67. tb says:

    It’s amazing the amount of misogynist bile spilt over one little quip:

    Just so you know, we’re ashamed the President is from Texas.

    For this they’re given death threats and called whores, bitches, cows, and every four-letter c-word in the book. You people need therapy.

  68. templar knight says:

    Dan, I do believe the commenters have completely abandoned Indymedia and flocked over here. All for a group of girls who sang country music, which they never bought, never listened to, and accused anyone who did buy and listen to it of being rednecks, hillbillies, flat-earthers, and every other two-bit phrase a 3rd grader might find funny.
    The hypocrisy meter measuring this liberal response has now gone off the scale.

  69. Templar, you don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about, of course. I probably own and listen to more good country music CDs than you can name. I liked the Chicks before they ever spoke one word about our asswipe President.
    I await your ill-formed response

  70. Templar, you don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about, of course. I probably own and listen to more good country music CDs than you can name. I liked the Chicks before they ever spoke one word about our asswipe President.
    I await your ill-formed response.

  71. scarshapedstar says:

    I dunno about that, Templar. I fully intend to have a Hem song play at my funeral. Granted, their music is more beautiful and less “we’ll put a boot up your ass / it’s the American way” but it’s country nonetheless. Jenny Lewis is also completely awesome.

  72. templar knight says:

    How about the rest of the liberals here, Hayes? Do you take issue with your friends who accuse anyone who listens to country music of being a redneck, flat-earther or inbreed? By the way, what good country music do you listen to and buy?

  73. katie says:

    Get over it, Dan.

  74. tb says:

    Are Conway Twitty, Patsy Cline and Hank Williams Sr. country enough for you? I know a bunch of folkies who play music that is closer to Hank Sr. than most current country music. Your concept of liberal anti-country music bias is about 20 years out of date. Not that this has anything to do with anything.

  75. klyde says:

    Dixie Clits?
    Good to see dan upholding the conservative idea of civil discourse. More proof that the cons not only hate America they hate women also.

  76. Rob Kaufman says:

    Well my favorite homophobic putz I in addition to owning every Dixie Chicks CD since Natalie joined the band I like Brad Paisley, Diamond Rio, Shania, Faith Hill and her hubby the future Senator of Tennessee, Sugarland, The Wreckers, SheDaisy, and even though I dislike their politics I do enjoy hearing Sara Evans sing and even can stomach some of Toby Keith. Nice to see you can be so wrong on a vast range of issues.

  77. templar knight says:

    I’m glad to see you boys are joining us redneck, inbred flat-earthers. Makes me feel good to know you boys are finally seeing the light.
    And what the hell is a folkie? And tell me what music they play. I think you must have been with Wille on his Missouri trip, tb.

  78. scarshapedstar says:

    Oh. Junior Brown, ’nuff said.

  79. tb says:

    A folkie plays folk music, duh.

  80. templar knight says:

    And what would you call modern day folk music? Are you referring to bluegrass? I’m trying to figure out what you are listening to.

  81. LeftyLouie says:

    Heres how the Dickeee Shits won….(real rules from the grammys)
    The only people who are allowed to vote for the Grammy Awards are those who are members of the National Academy of the Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS). There are only 15000 members!!!
    Members must have worked on six albums (in terms of production, engineering, mixing, or being the recording artist). NARAS members are peers of all who submit their work to the recording Academy. NARAS members are to vote based upon the quality of the work that has been submitted.

    I told you the country music I listen to. What’s your fucking point, anyway?

  83. Gram Parsons, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, June Carter Cash, Merle Haggard, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Emmylou Harris, the Jayhawks, Buck Owens, Hank Williams, Rosanne Cash, Uncle Tupelo, etc. And of course the last five Dixie Chicks releases.
    That country enough for you, dumbass?

    Curiosity, that’s all. Does there have to be a point to everything?

    You’re a real conversationist, Hayes. I bet you’re proud of your abilities. What a lying little shit you are.

  86. tb says:

    You said that liberals were “hypocrites” with regards to the Dixie Chicks because we don’t listen to country music. Since the last part is false, and one doesn’t really follow from the other anyway, I thought you might want to explain yourself further. Can you? Or are you just floating with the vibes, saying whatever the hell you feel like?

  87. To go all Dick Cheney on you there, temp: Go fuck yourself.

  88. Rob Kaufman says:

    poor poor temp, you are so misunderstood, you are almost always dead wrong every time you type something. Gee, at least a broken clock is right twice a day so maybe someday you will get something right. By the way I forgot 2 of my favorite bands, Alison Kraus and Union Station & Nickel Creek. Maybe you should stick to topics you have a clue about but I guess we would never see another post from you if you did that.

    I’m a big fan of Loretta Lynn’s last album which was largely ignored by country artists (they don’t know what they were missing). And while my favorite artist, Elvis Costello, isn’t a country artist per se he has recorded a couple of country albums “Almost Blue” and “Kojak Variety”. Willie, Waylon and Patsy also grace my collection.

    “Curiosity, that’s all. Does there have to be a point to everything?”
    Really? I thought the point was that were were defending
    “a group of girls who sang country music, which they never bought, never listened to, and accused anyone who did buy and listen to it of being rednecks, hillbillies, flat-earthers, and every other two-bit phrase a 3rd grader might find funny.
    The hypocrisy meter measuring this liberal response has now gone off the scale.”
    So, if we don’t listen to country, we’re hypocrites.
    It turns out that the inverse is not true, though – if we do listen to country, well, that just doesn’t matter then.
    Do I get to play the hypocrisy card now? :)

    You’ve never seen a clit, have you?

    Liberals don’t like country music?
    My wife, who’s been a clogger, line dancer and two-stepper for fifteen years and dances almost exclusively to country, would be exceptionally surprised to hear that.

  93. templar knight says:

    I don’t know a single liberal who likes country music. If you liberals and your sockpuppets say you like and buy country music, then I am wrong. If, however, you are just lying, then I am right. Probably a little of both, but when I say liberals, there are always a few exceptions. I even met a liberal a few years ago who actually had manners. Doubtful I will ever find another. But I’ll keep looking.

    “templar knight”? Dude, I think you’re overcompensating.
    I’d like to add to the pile on top of tk’s head Johnny Cash, a real lefty man of the people and the kind of guy wingnuts can only wish to be. Because great art doesn’t come from fear and hatred.
    Also, The Flying Burrito Bros, Waylon, Merle, Kitty Wells, Bob Wills, Bill Kirchen, The Maddox Bros and Rose, Cub Country (check ‘em out), Steve Earle, Dwight Yoakam, Patsy Cline, etc. etc. Notice how many of ‘em lean to the left?
    I think I’m gonna name my new band The Moonbat Trolls.

  95. NoOneYouKnow says:

    Oh, and “Dixie Clits”? That’s sad in so many ways I don’t know where to start.

    “I think I’m gonna name my new band The Moonbat Trolls”.
    Sure couldn’t disagree with that name, NOYK. I’ll anxiously await your first cd, which should be titled “No one you would want to know”.
