Jerry Falwell awakes from two-month senescent slumber to criticize the Dixie Chicks:
- The Rev. Jerry Falwell called the Dixie Chicks three “French hens,” saying “politics should end at the shore when you leave the country,” referring to antiwar remarks made by lead singer Natalie Maines.
….Falwell said Maines was wrong to speak critically of the United States while overseas. “You don’t talk about your own country, especially during war,” he said Monday during an appearance at Jonesboro. [AP]
Falwell then savagely tore into John Wilkes Booth for shooting President Lincoln.
