Dixie Chicks Claim 5 Grammys!

The Dixie Chicks, shunned by country radio after singer Natalie Maines slammed President Bush, were the big winners at tonight's Grammys, taking home five trophies. It was also a big night for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, who picked up four awards, and Mary J. Blige, who won three. Double award winners were John Mayer, T.I. and Ludacris.

I'm not a huge country fan and I pretty much never blog about entertainment news, but I must say I'm very happy to see the Dixie Chicks attain well deserved success despite all of the efforts by the right wing nazis of this country to destroy their livelihoods for simply expressing their opinions. It's every Americans right to use their freedom of speech and personally I think the people who set out to destroy the Dixie Chicks because they didn't like their opinions are a bunch of hypocrites who have no problem with Toby Keith spouting off right wing opinions on politics. You only ever hear the, "hollywood/entertainers should keep their mouths shut" crap when it's a liberal opinion being voiced. I have a question for all the conservatives out there who think Michael Moore etc. should shutup, what qualifies Bill O'Reilly or Rush Limbaugh as experts who have the God given right to say whatever they want? How are they any more qualified to offer political opinions, after all they're simply radio and tv personalities/entertainers?!!
