The stupidest song parody ever?

Ladies and gents, I think I just found the most positively idiotic song parody that's ever been recorded!

It's sung by a guy named David Thibodeaux, and it's an answer song to the Dixie Chicks' "Not Ready To Make Nice." Thibodaux's lyrics are a diatribe against the Dixies' dissent from the Bush order. Thibodaux tries unconvincingly to portray the Dixie Chicks' antiwar stance as some sort of sinister, unpatriotic plot and gloats over the treatment that was visited on the band for their views.

Apparently Thibodeaux doesn't even understand the message of the Dixie Chicks' Grammy-winning song he mocked. That song was about the blacklisting and threats against the band. It wasn't about the Iraq War itself.

On his websites, Thibodaux declares, "I decided to record 'Not Ready To End The Fight' to make a point, criticize, comment and answer the Dixie Chicks song and all the other Hollywood stars that constantly overestimate my interest in their personal politics and their level of competence in foreign policy and about how our Country should be run and how they imply they know what is better for this Country than our elected officials." So he's saying the Dixie Chicks (who are Americans) shouldn't have a voice in deciding how the country is run? Not real democratic of you, David. It's clear the Dixies have more foreign policy competence than Bush does.

Thibodaux's sanctimonious plen-T-plaint is gnawing in the beginning and quickly becomes almost unlistenable:

Nobody's saying David Thibodeaux doesn't have a right to sing and record such nonsense. He is an active duty Marine, which is better than what I can say about chickenhawks like Saxby Chambliss when they attack everyone else's patriotism. But it's also our right to ridicule Thibodeaux for his inability to get over a controversy from 5 years ago.

Fans of Thibodeaux's parody are trying to encourage radio stations to play it - making it the "Dawn Of Correction" of the 21st century. But Tantrum 95.7 wouldn't have added this one!
