Chrissie Hynde, Bush Critic

Chrissie Hynde denounces "W" from the stage and causes no ripples:

You are supposed to say stuff like that in rock. If anything, a rock star who started spouting off in defense of America would lose record sales.

I think the reporter misses the point. Chrissie Hynde's celebrity has diminished and the Dixie Chicks had one of last year's biggest selling albums. If an American top 40 pop/rock star (Avril, Sum 41, etc.) had made the same statements as the Dixies, they would have been lambasted as well for speaking their mind.
