A catfight between The Dixie Chiciks and Reba McEntire? That’s nothing compared with another feud with the leader of the free world.

It’s been more than three years since The Dixie Chicks sparked a media controversy by announcing they were “ashamed the President of the United States is from Texas.” Now, the country stars are back for more Bush bashing.

According to Entertainment Weekly, one memorable scene from the documentary”Dixie Chicks: Shut Up and Sing” shows the singers watching a news report on President Bush’s reaction to their infamous on-stage comment.

In the report, Bush says ”the Dixie Chicks are free to speak their mind,” adding, ”they shouldn’t have their feelings hurt just because some people don’t want to buy their records when they speak out. You know, freedom is a two-way street.”

After watching this footage, Maines then repeats the president’s comment and says, ”What a dumb f—.” She then looks into the camera, as if addressing Bush himself, and reiterates, ”You’re a dumb f—.”

It’s hard to argue with that. It’s also hard not to reiterate that the president has a man crush on Matt Lauer.

The documentary, directed by two-time Academy Award-winner Barbara Kopple, travels with the Chicks, from their peak of popularity through the now infamous anti-Bush comment.

The film is set to premiere tonight at the Toronto International Film Festival. We’re assuming Canadians will agree with these ladies’ views on President Bush.

We also assume they’d vote for Suri Cruise as the cutest celebrity baby. Just a guess.
