John Prine's little stab

Folk/country singer/songwriter John Prine was on Austin City Limits recently and he performed a song entitled "Some Humans Ain't Human" from the album he released last year, Fair and Square, which was his first new album in eight years. This year, the album won a Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Album.

In it, he takes a quick jab at our Chimp-in-Chief:

Or you're feeling your freedom
And the world's off your back
Some hotshot from Texas
Starts his own war in Iraq

Considering that I haven't heard a thing about this on the news, I guess country musicians can take shots at Bush without controversy even in the state of Texas as long as they aren't women. Or popular. Or both.
