America = Dixie Chicks + Football

Here's my #2 choice. My all-time favorite song is up at Pgh Lesbian. This is not only a beautiful rendition of our National Anthem, but illustrates the strange mixture of things that people lift up in our society -- a violent sport, the military, patriotic pageantry, and setting things on fire. There's also the irony of the Dixie Chicks going on to become an excellent example of the false dichotomy of free speech v patriotism.

God Bless the Dixie Chicks.
