Country music stars desert Bush

Toby Keith (left) and various other country musicians suddenly are turning out antiwar songs -- much to the dismay of some pseudo-patriotic diehards among their fans.

Let's not forget, however, that the Dixie Chicks were dissenters before dissent was cool.

My wife is a big Dixie Chicks fan and we saw them in Vegas a few years ago. They made mention of the Bush comments and a number of their fans didn't like it. How times have changes. It's also interesting that Toby Keith has changed his tune. He has a restaurant at Harrahs in Las Vegas and it's all decorated in patriotic colors and even has "freedom fries" on the menu instead of french fries.
