Skip to comments.Dixie Chicks to Bush: "You're a dumb f**k."

It's been more than three years since the Dixie Chicks sparked a media firestorm by announcing they were "ashamed the President of the United States is from Texas." Now, the embattled country stars are reigniting the blaze with a highly controversial documentary featuring lead singer Natalie Maines calling President Bush a "dumb f---."
According to Entertainment Weekly, one memorable scene from "Dixie Chicks: Shut Up and Sing" shows the singers watching a news report on President Bush's reaction to their infamous on-stage comment. In the report, Bush says ''the Dixie Chicks are free to speak their mind,'' adding, ''they shouldn't have their feelings hurt just because some people don't want to buy their records when they speak out. You know, freedom is a two-way street.'' After watching this footage, Maines then repeats the president's comment and says, ''What a dumb f---.'' She then looks into the camera, as if addressing Bush himself, and reiterates, ''You're a dumb f---.''
The documentary, directed by two-time Academy Award-winning Barbara Kopple, travels with the Chicks, from their peak of popularity as the national anthem-singing darlings of country music and top-selling female recording artists of all time, through the now infamous anti-Bush comment, and on through the days, months and years of mayhem. The film is set to premiere tonight at the Toronto International Film Festival, where for some odd reason (possibly that our neighbors to the north aren't exactly fans of our nation's leader), it's expected to be a huge hit.
What's a "Dixie Chick?"
Would love to see an intellectual dual between the two. That would be sweet. A Harvard MBA up against an airhead. I know, in my dreams .....
A dumb cluck
I'd boycott them, but I never bought any of their music in the first place. May this group be consigned to the oblivion they so richly deserve.
Dixie chicks: Shut up and...
Oh, just shut up.
White Trash without the class.
Who's the DUmb F*@k who hired Fat Nat as the lead singer?
A bird quickly going the way of the Dodo.
Ill bet the other two Chix wish natalie would just shut up..
Imagine that, those idiots calling GWB that.
How's their record sales going...hahahaha
The dixie chicks are free to speak their mind, if they can collectively come up with one...
She's a free, walking advertisement to vote GOP.
Well, aren't they just precious? Not.......
What poor excuses for human beings. What diplomacy. Yeah right. How stupid can one get. Apparently worse than I thought.
He'll remember that the next time he's flying aboard Air Force One and you're going from half-empty stadium to half-empty stadium in your TOUR BUS!
I'd add, "Plucked in the head."
Only a dumb f*** would find a way to piss off 80% of your original fan base.
