Dixie Chicks To Bush: "You're a Dumb F**k"

9/12/2006 7:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's been more than three years since the Dixie Chicks sparked a media firestorm by announcing they were "ashamed the President of the United States is from Texas." Now, the embattled country stars are reigniting the blaze with a highly controversial documentary featuring lead singer Natalie Maines calling President Bush a "dumb f---."



According to Entertainment Weekly, one memorable scene from "Dixie Chicks: Shut Up and Sing" shows the singers watching a news report on President Bush's reaction to their infamous on-stage comment. In the report, Bush says ''the Dixie Chicks are free to speak their mind,'' 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 then repeats the president's comment and says, ''What a dumb f---.'' She then looks into the camera, as if addressing Bush himself, and reiterates, ''You're a dumb f---.''

The documentary, directed by two-time Academy Award-winning Barbara Kopple, travels with the Chicks, from their peak of popularity as the national anthem-singing darlings of country music and top-selling female recording artists of all time, through the now infamous anti-Bush comment, and on through the days, months and years of mayhem. The film is set to premiere tonight at the Toronto International Film Festival, where for some odd reason (possibly that our neighbors to the north aren't exactly fans of our nation's leader), it's expected to be a huge hit.

Go Dixie Chicks!! Natalie Maines ROCKS!! For those of you that just don't seem to get it, George W. Bush is an idiot !!! He is making the US the laughing stock of the world, we have NO ALLIES anymore.....not only that, our kids are dying in Iraq. If you want to look at that as patriotic or in support of the big idiot, tell it to parents that have lost their kid in the war! And for all of you Nee'r do wells that cite what Natalie Maines and the Dixie Chicks say as "unpatriotic" just remember, this is America and they have a right to free speech just like you Bush Lovers!

And Julie, Better re-read some of your conservative friends posts. They can be very nasty as well. Both side are passionate. So don't be pointing your self righteous fingers at anyone. OK?

Calling Bush a dumb f**k is just stating the obvious. What about all the dumb f**ken Americans that voting this guy in twice, although he didn't really win the first time. I'm a Libertarian and wouldn't vote for a Republican or Democrat if my life depended on it. What American needs is a real choice for change. The Rebs & Dems are all part of the same club, and are bought and paid for by the special interest groups and there lobbyist's. This is so obvious, the corporations make contributions to both parties, covering there bets, WAKE UP PEOPLE! America needs to take care of America first, PERIOD. The military industrial complex are making billions off this war and we are more hated then ever in the Middle East. 5 years after 9/11 and we have still failed to get Osama Bin Laden, what have all our soldiers died for? And please, don't give me that bullsh**, wrap yourself in the flag line, OUR FREEDOM!

I once liked the Dixie Chicks, but now I just feel sorry for their ignorance. People should get the facts straight about our President and stop criticizing him. If any one "like the Dixie Chicks" could do a better job running our country, go ahead and give it a try...

Wow Stormy you can post 10 times a minute, impressive. Try posting something worth reading and that you've come up with all by yourself. Instead of just one liner remarks proving what we already know about you.

Bush is a bad president because:

>He lies
>He’s has us in a war we can not win and one that helps create terrorist not eliminate them.
>Are economy has gone into the dumper on his watch. Look at our deficit now compared to 8 years ago.
>He lies.
>He uneducated, just listen to him. His degree was bought by daddy. And so we come off as idiot to other countries that have educated leaders.
>He lies

To poster #29, Theresa, my personal feelings about Bush and the "Chicks" aside, that might be one of the best posts I've ever read. I'm still laughing. Livewire is very clever, but he (or she) apparently has alot of free time. Your response goes into my post hall of fame.
