Dumb Asses


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---.''

Sean Penn is at it again, shooting off his mouth at a news conference for the Toronto International Film Festival and calling President Bush "Beelzebub."

Penn used the biblical term for a prince of devils while promoting the remake of the political drama "All the King's Men" on Sunday.

"One could make the argument that George Bush is a good politician," Penn said at one point. Then he added: "I think the issue is how you define politician. Once upon a time, politics was the organization of things to benefit the people."

Penn said the definition has changed – much as it has for "good actor," which now means, he said, "contest winner," Editor & Publisher reported.

"So that's the level of politician I think he's good at," Penn continued. "Out of context, he's Beelzebub – and a dumb one."

I say we all pitch in and buy them all a one way ticket out of here.. After all, why would they want to stay here while Beelzebub the dumb fuck is the leader?? Then as soon as their gone, we declare the nation a monarchy so that Bush can remain in office.. Either that or vote me in. I'll put a ban on idiots. We'll be able to get rid of a bunch of them that way.

The whole thing with the Dixie Chicks is they could have just made the whole thing go away if they just would have said that Hey we were just excersizing our right to free speech,most people would have just let it go,but they had to keep complaining, attacking anyone who dare question their intent,and now their career is over because of it. Most of their current concert dates are cancelled, they did'nt have one song from their new album even crack the top 20,and the album itself bombed. And because they are no longer popular there isn't one liberal in this country who will have them perform at any type of function.
