Grammys Dig Chicks

Five of them. And of course it's being spun as some kind of national rebuke against those who dared to stop listening to their CDs.

Of course, it not likely to dawn on these twits that receiving these awards from the members of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (as opposed to say, uh I dunno, the music fans) is the equivalent of Al-Jazeera bestowing Muqtada al-Sadr with the title of "Sexiest Man Alive".

Dirty Harry at Libertas weighs in on the silliness:

They went from selling tens of million of records to less than 2 million. They went from #1 hits to not being able to crack the Top 20. They went from filling arenas to cancelling tour dates and having to play in Canada. They went from winning awards for their work to winning consolation prizes for their politics.

If they only understood it wasn’t their politics that cost them their audience — that it was their unbridled arrogance — they wouldn’t be taking those Grammys to Canada on their next tour. Of course, they might not have won those Grammys otherwise, because it appears they won big last night, not for their music, but instead for, “Best Performance By Rich White Beautiful Females Who Have Everything At Playing Whiney Liberal Victims.”

"Taking those Grammys to Canada on their next tour". Snort.

Let's see--they got playtime at the Grammys and win 5 of them--I smell a rat! I was surprised that they were even nominated! I did a post about the Grammys at Frankly, My Dear.

Everyone knows Willie Nelson's politics -- he supported Dennis Kucinich in 2004, for crying out loud. Yet he's still loved & respected & sells lots of records. I suspect it is because he's not a jerk about his beliefs.
