Natalie Mains calls * a dumb F--k in Film Shut Up and Sing
http://www.ew.com/ew/report/0,6115,1533988_1_0_,00.html

The international press won't get their first look at the documentary Dixie Chicks: Shut Up and Sing until its gala premiere at the Toronto Film Festival tonight. But EW.com got an early look at the sure-to-be-controversial doc in Los Angeles and can attest that the film will continue to bring the (ex?) country trio more plaudits from progressives and further condemnation from conservatives. And if you think singer Natalie Maines had some harsh words for President Bush in public, wait till you hear what she had to say about him behind the scenes.

In one memorable scene, Maines watches news footage of the president being interviewed about the furor that followed the singer's on-stage comment that she was ''ashamed the President of the United States is from Texas,'' which resulted in the group being dropped from most radio stations, as well as protests and plummeting sales. ''The Dixie Chicks are free to speak their mind,'' Bush told Tom Brokaw at the time, 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 repeats the president's comment about how the group shouldn't have their ''feelings hurt,'' incredulous, and then says, ''What a dumb f---.'' She then looks into the camera, as if addressing Bush, and reiterates, ''You're a dumb f---.''

We could be wrong, but we have a feeling that in Toronto, at least, they're gonna love it.

20. I have to run out of the lunchroom at work if FAUX is on...
Makes me sick to my stomach and I just have to leave or I'll say some dumb thing that will get me fired.

I talk to people about political stuff in reasonable tones most times, but when I see the lies and propoganda right there in front of my face it takes time for me to cool down. If my husband has msm on at home and doesn't turn it off, my blood boils and I start cursing like a mule skinner.

9. Yes, Natalie is right of course
I just wish the music on their latest CD wouldn't have been destroyed by idiot producers. Distortion and audio clipping/compression everywhere, just for making the music sound LOUD on the radio. I just can't listen to it for longer than 3 minutes. It's a shame they let this happen to their music.

28. I'm not overanalyzing it at all.
I just say the sound, the acoustic quality of that CD is crap. I didn't say anything about the lyrics. It could have been a great CD just like their last, but this time the sound has been ruined.
