From the Dixie Chicks and Martin Sheen to Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins, stars who speak out against President Bush and the war in Iraq are seeing repercussions.

"There's a piling on, and we're isolating people. That's just wrong," says Kevin Costner, standing up for "courageous" Bull Durham co-stars Sarandon and Robbins.

Says Sarandon, "It's so ironic that we should be quote unquote liberating another country and giving them a democracy when we're telling people here if they open their mouths, they're not allowed to participate."

Says one of the celebrity participants of the Stop Dr. Laura movement. What an abject hypocrite.

Translation: "Us lefties shot our stupid mouths off and now we're getting bitch-slapped for it."

My heart bleeds.

Lavigne's young, hip audience

I didn't know that "young, hip," was a synonym for tone-deaf.

I fear the opposite: a lack of piling on. These bozos worked hard to come by their contempt, so we're doing a public service.

They are free to say what they want. The rest of us are free to dislike them for it and act accordingly.

Oh, the irony of it! Listen, Susie dear, your'e still allowed to "participate" just don't expect us to "play along" with you any more. It takes two to tango and you just lost your tango partner...the public for whom you perform. Morons.
