Uh-oh. The Dixie Chicks are in big trouble now. It seems that Pat Boone has decided to call them out:
Music legend Pat Boone is ripping into the Dixie Chicks for withdrawing their apology for a previous attack on President Bush.
Hmm. I don’t think that copy is quite accurate. It should read, “Pat Boone, who is legendary for taking songs written by real musicians and making them suck, is ripping the Dixie Chicks for being 100% right about everything.”
“I have four daughters, and I taught them to respect their elders, even if they weren’t president of the United States,” Boone told Fox News host Neil Cavuto today.
Hey, since bin Laden is older than I am, does that mean I have to respect him too? I’m not sure I like the objectively pro-terror message you’re sending here, Mr. Boone.
“I think it’s outrageous for any of these performers to be bashing our president the way they are.”
And since P-Boo is so influential with today’s youth, all you anti-Bush performers had better heed his advice and knock it off if you want to work in this town again.
Boone, who is also a columnist for WorldNetDaily, says what seemed like a momentary misstep by Maines now begins to look like a flaw in her character.
“If I were the president of Iran, if I were Osama bin Laden or any of the terrorist organizers and I could have my wish list totally,” Boone said, “I couldn’t ask for anything better than for America’s entertainers to bash their president, denigrate him, make him seem like an idiot and a self-serving fool, and then have the media go along with it and promote it like crazy and try to undermine the whole war effort.”
Yeah, forget acquiring nuclear weapons- having hot country singers make fun of Bush is obviously #1 on the terrorists’ wish list.
He continued, “We are at war, and you don’t tell even a quarterback in a football game that he’s nuts and you don’t respect him.
Pat has obviously never heard of Terrell Owens.
You try to pull for a win, and that’s what we should be trying to do. … You can disagree. You can express your disagreement, but don’t attack the man who is your elected leader and say he’s not owed any respect at all.”
While Bill Clinton was giving his farewell address to the American people Thursday night, hundreds of conservatives gathered in Washington, D.C., to offer their own farewell to the president – a mock funeral to mark “the death of the Clinton Administration.” [...]
Among those attending the mock funeral were a diverse group of conservative activists and luminaries, ranging from evangelist Jerry Falwell and Judge Robert Bork to entertainer Pat Boone and commentator Lucianne Goldberg. MRC officials said the sold-out event attracted more than 500 attendees, most of whom erupted in lengthy applause when Bozell remarked about his anticipation of Clinton “getting the hell out of the White House.”
Also eulogizing the Clinton Administration was author and former White House speech writer Christopher Buckley, who took note of the tractor trailers required to move the Clinton’s possessions and documents out of the White House. “I’m sure they’ll find an appropriate trailer park,” Buckley said.
