No title needed

I don't usually make decisions about what films I watch or music I listen based solely on the political views of the performer. I think people are entitled to their opinions, and I may still want to watch a movie even if the actor is a liberal wingnut. Sometimes, however, the line must be drawn, and the Dixie Chicks have crossed it (again). From an interview in London's Telegraph:

The entire country may disagree with me, but I don't understand the necessity for patriotism. Why do you have to be a patriot? About what? This land is our land? Why? You can like where you live and like your life, but as for loving the whole country… I don't see why people care about patriotism.

That was Natalie Maines (deleted ad hominem). Well Maines, you are dead to me now.
