Let's cut Brad Paisley some slack, OK?

The road to hell is paved with good intentions -- and it looks like Brad Paisley and LL Cool J are catching all kinds of hell for "Accidental Racist," their well-intentioned (if somewhat naive) tune about contemporary race relations. But Jeez Louise, folks: Paisley celebrated the election of Barack Freakin' Obama back in "Welcome to Future" -- and then performed it at the White House for the POTUS and the First Lady. So, to paraphrase Eva in Jim Jarmusch's Stranger Than Paradise: "It's Brad Paisley, and he's a country boy, so bug off!"
