    I don't believe she really gives a shit about politics either way. (90% of her Twitter feed is about her Howard Stern obsession, she hardly ever talks current events and barely even promotes her own music.) It was a throwaway comment trying to appeal to the crowd, which was in the U.K., which was hostile to the American Southern image at the time. American country artists hardly ever break out in Europe and the Dixie Chicks were taking a turn. When the comments first started attracted attention in the U.S. press, Natalie did an interview where she giggled throughout and came across as either stoned, or an airhead, and claimed she didn't even remember making the comments. Then a good publicist got ahold of them and revamped her image into that of a serious martyr and capitalized on the controversy, getting them a ton of magazine covers, a movie deal, etc. So yeah, they lost some of the country base but more than made for it with it getting them a ton of mainstream exposure and Grammys, etc. and making them a bunch more money than they ever would've gotten otherwise.

    There are other people who've seen their careers negatively impacted after taking real stances, and I feel sorry for them. She lucked into having a throwaway comment get her the PR opportunity to break away from country music and become mainstream, which is what she wanted anyway, so good on her for working the system.

    Nope, we're just hostile to stupid. Especially when stupid has massive fire power.

    Totally OT but I was watching a show called American Slang which said the American South got our way of speaking from British Aristocrats that settled here. Guess we are posh as possum shit.
