Thread Name: Bruce Springsteen and the Dixie Chicks
Subject: RE: BS: Bruce Springsteen and the Dixie Chicks
I think the difference is that some folks (I don't agree with them but...) equate the comment about Bush and comments opposing the war as being "against the troops". People have their hot spots and perhaps we've found a common one among country music fans. The US has a history of taking things to the extreme so the reaction to the Dixie Chicks, however wrong we may think it is, should not be totally surprising.
