Why are we not surprised? From our number one, national redneck idiot, Toby Keith's latest tune, "Beer for My Horses", with its subtle lyrics:
Grandpappy told my pappy back in my day, son
A man had to answer for the wicked that he'd done
Take all the rope in Texas
Find a tall oak tree, round up all of them bad boys
Hang them high in the street
For all the people to see
And along with a threatening black man in its video clip (while Keith intones the line "We got too many gangsters doing dirty deeds / too much corruption and crime in the streets") it's just great fun for the whole family! Lynching is cool, man.
