The Dixie Chicks Start Eating Their Own

“So, if you’re gonna say goodbye, don’t take all day and night. Let’er rip, let it fly.”
– From “Let ‘er Rip,” sung by the Dixie Chicks

It looks like the hosts of “The View” are taking them up on the above lyrics, and now the Chicks are focusing on other things … like borrowing the “jaws of life” from the local fire department to assist in removing their feet from their mouths, and this time it has nothing to do with George W. Bush. 

When the left starts eating their own like some bleach-blonde Donner Party is when it gets fun. It’s good to know that the Chicks have now rotated, volleyball team style, to take turns in offending people. This time, though, they’ve ticked off some long-time supporters.

From the NY Post:

Dixie Chick Emily Robison has apologized to the women of “The View” for dissing them in Time magazine.

“View” co-host Meredith Vieira read Robison’s mea culpa at the top of yesterday’s show.

“I wanted to write you directly to apologize for my comment in Time magazine. I attempted to explain how much we respect maverick artists like Bruce Springsteen,” Robison wrote. “My intention was not to insult ‘The View,’ and at the time, I was truly just pulling a name out of the air.”

What prompted Robison to start to do so much waffling that she was offered a job by the Eggo people?

Robison was quoted in Time’s Dixie Chicks cover story as saying the group takes its politics very seriously – and how it asks itself, “What would Bruce Springsteen do?”

“Not that we’re of that caliber, but would Bruce Springsteen do ‘The View’? ” Robison said.

The comment infuriated the show’s co-hosts, since “The View” gave The Dixie Chicks their big break in 1998. On Tuesday’s show, Joy Behar tore the Time magazine article to shreds.

It’s fun to watch three women demonstrate that, yes, the “curtains match the carpet,” but only in the sense that neither end contains brains.

I read a comment on a news forum that described the Dixie Chicks as a “rolling wreck”. This is becoming obvious. Once somebody sets off down the trail of controversy, some tend to take swings at whatever comes along, and many times, those can include their supporters. Well, former supporters. This is often the downfall for those who like to stir the shitstorm with their heads. Over time, it soaks in through the ears.

Will the Dixie Chicks be invited to appear on The View again? You bet. Controversy loves company, not to mention the ratings it garners.
