Hit Me, Natalie. Hit Me Quick.

Hit me with your big clue stick.

I was driving home today from Fry's Electronics, listening to the local country station (KZLA). Mind, this is in Southern California. Along comes Mr. D.J., and he announces they're going to do a five-song set... of the Dixie Chicks.

So I'm already gagging (sorry, "gag me with a spoon;" I forgot my Val-Speak for a moment), but the next words made me do a Danny-Thomas spit-take with a mouthful of Caffeine-free Diet Dr. Pepper:

Here's a five-song set from the Dixie Chicks... and we're dedicating this set to all of our boys fighting overseas!

Egah. Yeah, and while you're at it, why not send our boys a bunch of autographed copies of Our Endangered Values, by Jimmy Carter?

What goes through people's minds -- besides the whistling of the wind?

Well, I rather liked the games that P.J. O'Rourke invented to be played with Carter's first book. I've been meaning to try it with this one too, if I can find a stripped copy. (I'm not going to pay for it!) I might also try it with Clinton's opus. I bet it's full of "You don't say?" moments as well as "Candid confessions" (like Rosalynn Carter's admission that she'd been working with mentally ill people since her husband's first campaign. :) ) And I bet the whole family would like to play "find the most stupid statement." In that sense, our boys might actually enjoy it.

As for the Dixie critters, let's not go there. They'll just scream about being oppressed.

Didn't she quit after proving the folly of insulting the paying customers? They are not selling anything to me.

My impression is that the DCs are not doing as well as they had been, but not as badly as I wish they were.
