Sorry if this is old news but this is the first time I've seen this movie. In "Shut Up And Sing" Natalie Maines names FR as the blog that started all thier probelems.

WAY TO GO FR!

Still watching on the Encore Drama channel.

I’d love to be able to take even partial credit but, alas, I am blameless.

I say her Daddy Lloyd play with Joe Ely and Joel Guzman.
Great show.

I’m sure Daddy is a lib too but he dont harp on it at his shows.

Natalie gets what she deserves.

Last week FR got blamed for the Obama is a Muslim emails.

This week this comes out on Encore? It's a 2006 movie but I've never seen it HBO or Encore before today. Coincidence?

Got to blame someone other then themselves.
It’s the dhimmocRATic way.

They had nobody to blame but themselves. If they had just shown a tad of humility, they would have been forgiven...but they were prime bitches..they gambled, and they lost. They chose the wrong side...the side that didn’t buy their albums. I have absolutely no sympathy for them. And I was a big fan of their music.

Next airing of the movie is July 16 @2:30am EST on the Encore East channel.

The FR mention is at the beginning so you don't have to watch the rest of their BS

Natalie can blame her enormous and ever open mouth for all of her problems. We have opinions, and we have the right to express them, despite Natalie’s belief that only she and her sistern have that right. Feh, I say!

No, the Dixie Communist Party of the USA’s problems started when they embraced the radical nihlism of the left wing losers in this country.

Only a complete absence of reason would cause those that benefit the most from the free market (Hollywood goon liberals), to turn their backs on the exact force (and country) that is the primary reason they are successful.

Free market Natalie. Eat it you pig.

LOL. I’d like to take some credit, but, alas, I’ve never known or cared enough about the Dixie Sluts to say anything here about them.

Oh, I think I did once state that attacking our CinC on a public stage in an allied country just as our troops are about to go into battle is contemptible behavior.

However, if Nat the Rat still can’t figure out why she is so widely despised, and if the still thinks only FR had anything to do with her problems, then she is even more delusional than we thought.

They’re gonna put me in the movies
they’re gonna make a big star out of me
We’ll make a film about a man that’s sad and lonely
and all I gotta do is act naturally

Well, I’ll bet you I’m gonna be a big star
might win an Oscar you can never tell
the movies gonna make me a big star
‘Cause I can play the part so well

Well I hope you come and see me in the movies
then I know that you will plainly see
The biggest fool that ever hit the big time
and all I gotta do is act naturally

We’ll make the scene about a man that’s sad and lonely
and beggin down upon his bended knee
I’ll play the part but I won’t need rehearsal
all I gotta do is act naturally

Well, I’ll bet you I’m gonna be a big star
might win an Oscar you can never tell
the movies gonna make me a big star
‘Cause I can play the part so well

Well I hope you come and see me in the movies
then I know that you will plainly see
The biggest fool that ever hit the big time
and all I gotta do is act naturally

The MSM has not been honest about the Dixie Chicks saga. They present Maines and her cohorts as a courageous lot, but they ignore the facts. Once the sh@t hit the fan after Maines’ comments, she offered a kind of half hearted apology. When that didn’t simmer things down, she made a full bore mea culpa. Alas, this didn’t work because fans and radio stations started boycotting their recordings and concerts. About a year or so after her second apology, realizing she had nothing to lose, Maines retracted it and began her crusade as the noble entertainer versus the evil Bush. Of course, if you hate Bush, that doesn’t make a very interesting documentary, so they kinda changed things around a bit.
