Will Dixie Chicks Get Their Revenge On Bush?
Some think a documentary about the harassment and vile attacks the Dixie Chicks faced simply for voicing their political beliefs will be a factor in the mid-term elections. I'd have to see it to believe something with that narrow of a focus (however well-done) could impact voters. Will the travails of the Chicks really anger voters? I think Spike Lee's moving Katrina documentary and Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth will wake people up much more. One factor in the Chicks' favor: they've got the marketing muscle of the Weinsteins behind them. The movie comes out this fall.
