Late Late Nite FDL: Bush Did Not Make Nice

I was hoping that NSA’s FDL Monitors had forwarded to Bush’s speechwriters this news post which discussed CTV‘s Philip Stavrou’s suggestions for tonight’s speech:

On Monday night, if U.S. President George Bush really wants to make nice with his critics there’s one group he needs to specifically address in his State of the Union speech — the Dixie Chicks.

"If he wants to heal the country’s divisions there doesn’t seem to be any better thing to do than reach out to the Dixie Chicks," Renan Levine, a professor of U.S. politics at the University of Toronto, told

"They are walking, talking, singing personifications of the divisions in the country and, yes, they are all from Texas.

"There needs to be a Bush-Dixie Chicks lovefest."

Bush’s speech tonight reinforced that he is not ready to make nice. Fine. Neither are we.

I am a host of Late Late Night FDL music and cartoon posts in addition to spending most evenings behind the FDL backstage curtain flipping levers. Used to be a practicing heterosexual but now it appears that I am just a consultant. Avid reader since teaching myself how to read when four. Navy brat and first born so always thinking of the consequences. Double Irish so I usually got caught. Turned my misspent youth around and became that scary thing in your rear view mirror. Retired from the Fremont (California) Police Department after 24 years of sworn and non-sworn duties, including Patrol and the Crimes Against Persons Unit. Currently living on the North Oregon Coast with Token, cutest dog in the world (10 lb category), where I enjoy taking non-crime scene photographs, writing at my own blog, TwoTonGreenBlog, and working backstage at Firedoglake.
