I can't believe what happened to the TG boys in Alabama. Imagine if you drove through Moss Side in cars daubed in similarly provocative material? ("Man love rules OK" is still appropriate and if you replaced Country&Western with 'Hip Hop' you'd get the same response but any political references would be lost so you'd have to resort to insulting prominent Manchester United footballers instead). I don't imagine you would get pelted with rocks or chased out of town. Head somewhere as rural as the place they were in and you'd just get laughed at. No wonder Bush behaves as if he is god.
