The Lady Speaks

You know it’s getting bad when…

Even country music stars are mad as hell at King George.

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, natives of Louisiana and Mississippi respectively, were “close to tears” when the questions turned to Katrina during a Nashville newsconference to promote their Soul2Soul tour.
From ABCnews:

Faith Hill and Tim McGraw — two stars who usually stay out of politics — blasted the Hurricane Katrina cleanup effort, with Hill calling the slow
progress in Louisiana and Mississippi “embarrassing” and “humiliating.”

The country music artists — who are natives of the storm ravaged states — were at times close to tears, and clearly angry when the subject of Katrina came up during a news conference today.

“When you have people dying because they’re poor and black or poor and white, or because of whatever they are — if that’s a number on a political scale — then that is the most wrong thing. That erases everything that’s great about our country.”

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 said.

“I fear for our country if we can’t handle our people [during] a natural disaster. And I can’t stand to see it. It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to figure out point A to point B. . . . And they can’t even skip from point A to point B.

You know, when Faith Hill starts calling “Bullshit” on the President, it’s a sign of just how far he’s sunk in public opinion since last summer. The 30-percenters are going to have a hard time with the cognitive dissonance this will cause.

Imagine their dilemma: “Faith and Tim say Bush is bad….but Bush is good…but…Tim and Faith say….” BLAM! (sound of heads exploding)
