By now you're probably heard of the backlash against the Dixie Chicks after one of them insulted George W. Bush at a concert, what with the public smashing of their CDs by construction equipment and radio stations setting up trash bins outside for people to throw away their CDs. But I noticed this phenomenon hasn't plagued any of the other famous musicians and singers who have made similar statements. I keep hoping some reporter will visit one of the sites where people are trashing their Dixie Chicks CDs and ask them what they thought of the comment about President Bush, and they'll respond, "The Dixie Chicks said something about President Bush?"

They dissed Bush, and they dissed Texas. Where do you wanna bet the major CD smashing public are from?
