Dixie Chicks peck at Bush

Maverick US country group the Dixie Chicks is still sniping at President George W. Bush, especially after his Republican party was hammered in mid-term elections.

The Texas band, which has felt a backlash at home for criticizing Bush’s Iraq war policy, played a sold-out concert in Vancouver Wednesday night.

Lead singer Natalie Maines couldn’t resist taking a shot at the humbled Bush administration as she praised her Vancouver fans. “Either the beer is free or you’re happy that Donald Rumsfeld resigned today,” Maines said.
