Country Singers Get Uppity

Ooowee... I don't know about Faith Hill and Tim McGraw's politics, but from what I know, country singers usually vote Republican. So... President Bush better shoo nuff watch it when country singers get uppity and spout off about the horrible Katrina response from the Federal government.

Hill and McGraw were promoting their new tour, and as natives of Mississippi and Louisiana, they had some choice words for the gubment.

Via Crooks and Liars,

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill embarrassed over Bush's Katrina response


"McGraw specifically criticized President Bush. "There's no reason why someone can't go down there who's supposed to be the leader of the free world … and say, 'I'm giving you a job to do and I'm not leaving here until it's done. And you're held accountable, and you're held accountable, and you're held accountable.

Hill, who grew up in Jackson, Miss., echoed those sentiments. So overwhelmed, she uncharacteristically unleashed an epithet, calling the situation, "Bull- - - -" "It is a huge, huge problem and it's embarrassing," she on

There's a link at Hoffmania to an actual recording of the press conference, while here's an article from AOL about the news conference.

And rutroh... here's the conversative NewsBusters take on the hullababloo... hmmm... they shoot horses and turncoats, don't they?

I posted on this, too. Important distinction is that Hill-McGraw took a populist stand against Bush.....not an anti-war stand (which would alienate their fans).
