More like "Because of" Rather than "Despite"

I'm baaaa-aaaack. Sorry about the long absence.

I don't watch award shows anymore. They have become little more than forums for self absorbed celebrities. Am I the only one who is NOT surprised by the Dixie Chicks doing well at the Grammies? This is a group who had to cancel concerts because people were not buying tickets. Why weren't they buying tickets? Because many viewed the Chicks anti-American and wanted nothing to do with them. Nobody is fooled by these awards, they won big at the Grammies precisely because of their anti-war, anti-military stances.

In a day where Oscars are handed out to movies that have "sprint audiences" (friends and family) simply because they or their stars are "on message" last night's Grammy Awards should come as no shock.
