Washed up 50’s singer Pat Boone is apparently not happy with The Dixie Chicks:
“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.”
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. 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.”
I suppose there’s still a segment of the population out there that still gives a shit what Pat Boone thinks, but I think he’s as big an idiot as the President is for trivializing war by comparing it to a football game. Shut up, Pat, you’re a schmuck.
