Dixie Chicks "Not Ready to Make Nice" with President Bush while Faith Hill and Tim McGraw spread falsehoods

The Dixie Chicks are still smarting from the backlash they recieved after their little Bush-bashing stunt in England. Here's part of the lyrics from their much-hyped (thanks to the MSM) new song:
It’s a sad sad story when a mother will teach her
Daughter that she ought to hate a perfect stranger

Well, gee, Natalie. Do you mean like how liberals are teaching their kids to hate President Bush? Like you are teaching your young fans (those who still listen to you, that is) to hate him?

Ah, well. It's all just a publicity stunt anyway. Just a way to grab some headlines so that people might be curious enough about their new album to buy it.

Meanwhile, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw are spreading a favorite leftist meme about the response to Hurricane Katrina:
When asked by reporters during Wednesday’s round table about the government’s slow progress, Hill, 38, said, “It’s wrong. It’s embarrassing. It really gets us fired up. That’s our homeland.”

McGraw blamed state and federal politics for hampering efforts to get adequate shelter, food and supplies to victims.

The only problem is that this perception is false:
MYTH: "The aftermath of Katrina will go down as one of the worst abandonments of Americans on American soil ever in U.S. history."--Aaron Broussard, president, Jefferson Parish, La., Meet the Press, NBC, Sept. 4, 2005

REALITY: Bumbling by top disaster-management officials fueled a perception of general inaction, one that was compounded by impassioned news anchors. In fact, the response to Hurricane Katrina was by far the largest--and fastest-rescue effort in U.S. history, with nearly 100,000 emergency personnel arriving on the scene within three days of the storm's landfall.

As Laura Ingraham says, "Shut up and sing."
