Thank god for Paul Krugman.

Now, Christian soldiers, let’s turn our attention to a few things Dixie Chick.

Check out this story from the AP via Salon.com.

May 6, 2003 | COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) --

Country station KKCS has suspended two disc jockeys for playing the Dixie Chicks, violating a ban imposed after the group criticized President Bush.

Lead singer Natalie Maines told a British newspaper she was "ashamed that the president of the United States is from Texas."

"We pulled their music two months ago, and it's been a difficult decision because how can you ignore the hottest group in country music," station manager Jerry Grant said.

He said there has been discussion about whether to reinstate the music, but the DJs, Dave Moore and Jeff Singer, became impatient.

"They made it very clear that they support wholeheartedly the president of the United States. They support wholeheartedly the troops, the military. But they also support the right of free speech," Grant said.

The station has received a couple of hundred calls and 75 percent favored playing the music.

Grant said Moore and Singer will be out for a couple of days.

"I gave them an alternative: stop it now and they'll be on suspension, or they can continue playing them and when they come out of the studio they won't have a job."

The station plans to play the group's music again eventually. "Most stations are starting to play them again anyhow, a song here, a song there. I just have a problem with the way this was done. We would have put them in anyhow. But we'd like to do it on our terms," he said.

Aaaaagggghhhh.

I’m so sick of reading about Clear channel and country music stations and the Dixie Chick ban and Dixie Chick protests and CD burning parties and moms wondering if they should take their little girls to Dixie Chick concerts and…aaaggghhh.

Hello, country people? Why are you people still running from the Dixie Chicks?! We’re not talking about The Clash or Public Enemy or Bob Dylan here. We’re talking about three girls with a bunch of fucking fiddles who sing about love and dating and trucks and stuff. Play their fucking music. What are you afraid of? Their music will not turn your listeners into a bunch of Saddam–loving, W-bashing, commie pinkos.

Or will it? Let’s dig through some Chick music to find the subversive (liberal) messages. We’ll start with “I Can Love You Better.”

I can love you better than that
I know how to make you forget her
All I'm asking is for one little chance
Cause baby I can love you
Baby I can love you better

I can’t believe it. A love note to Saddam Hussein. Makes me wanna puke, giving comfort to an evildoer like that. The Chicks should be shot. But wait, there’s more. Check out the lyrics to “Cowboy, Take Me Away.”

Wanna sleep on the hard ground
In the comfort of your arms
On a pillow of bluebonnets
In a blanket made of stars
Oh it sounds good to me

Did you hear that? The Chicks are practically begging Osama Bin Laden to wisk them away to an Al-Qaeda training camp. Outrageous.

Hold on, it gets worse. This is an excerpt from “White Trash Wedding”

You can't afford no ring
You can't afford no ring
I shouldn't be wearing white and you can't afford no ring

You finally took my hand
You finally took my hand
It took a nip of gin
But you finally took my hand

Now I’m really mad. Haven’t they had enough? How dare they attack the President. The Dixie Chicks should be jailed for even “suggesting” that W has a drinking problem. He doesn’t. The Lord took care of that “problem” back in ’86. And let me finish this session by saying that you will be offended by the lyrics to “Hello Mr. Heartache.”

Hello Mr. Heartache
I've been expecting you
Come in and wear your welcome out
The way you always do
You never say if you're here to stay
Or only passin' through
So hello Mr. Heartache
I've been expecting you

An anti-Newt Gingrich tune if I’ve ever heard one. The Chicks are clearly saying that it’s wrong to leave your wife for a younger woman, especially if your wife has cancer. Sick and disgusting.

Jesus H. Christ, country people, get over it. You want an anti-war song? I’ll give you a great one. Take it away, Ozzy:

Generals gathered in their masses
just like witches at black masses
evil minds that plot destruction
sorcerers of death's construction
in the fields the bodies burning as the war machine keeps turning
death and hatred to mankind
poisoning their brainwashed minds... Oh lord yeah!

Until the Chicks bust out a country version of “War Pigs,” leave them alone. (And god help us if they do.)
