Two wrongs make you really wrong

Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks has opened her month and inserted her foot farther in, instead of removing it. According to this MSNBC story, the Dixie Chicks are again being pulled from some radio stations' playlists because of the antics of the lead singer.

In this case, Natalie wore a t-shirt on the Country Music Awards which had the letters F.U.T.K. on the front, the message being intended for Toby Keith, who would actually go on to win the biggest award of the show -- entertainer of the year. The two have been publicly sparring ever since Natalie said that Keith's song "Angry American" was ignorant. Things had been dying down, until she used a national platform to stoke the flames of controversy once again.

Smart move, Maines.
