VANCOUVER—Maverick U.S. country group the Dixie Chicks is still sniping at U.S. 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, referring to Bush's once powerful defence secretary.
It was one of several pokes at Bush by Maines.
