Apologies To Merle
It appears Earl Hickey is unhappy at the portrayal of Merle Haggard in the previous post, where Randy may have suggested he was something of redneck Republican. Earl is keen to point out that Haggard was one of the only country stars to actually defend The Dixie Chicks after “the incident” and suggests that the grizzled old bugger is more a “contrary” Libertarian than anything.
Randy is smarter than to try and argue this stuff with Earl (it always ends up with Earl getting riled and trying to hit Randy, which never works cos you see Earl only comes up to Randy’s chest and there’s never a tea chest to stand on lying around when you need one). So by means of pacifying Earl and overturning any suggestion that Merle is a redneck Republican, here he is singing one of his best known liberal anthems.
