Don't Rock the Boat

So, the Dixie Chicks have a movie coming out, Shut Up and Sing. As you can guess by the title, it's all about the time they said they were ashamed of Bush at a concert in London, and the ensuing storm of bullshit that ensued, which included death threats, accusations of treason. An ad for the movie has been pitched to the networks, which depicts Bush's statements on the War in Iraq, Natalie Maines's comments in London, the ensuing shitstorm, Bush's reaction, and Maines's reaction to his reaction.

And now NBC has decided to reject the ad. Why? Because it's "disparaging of President Bush." Because God knows, no one in America, especially not the majority of the population, is utterly disappointed with Bush.

Congratulations, NBC. You have officially beaten out CBS's reaction to the UCC ads when it comes to corporate bootlicking.
