Underhanded Underwood

I just watched Carrie Underwood sing her song "Before he Cheats" in silver hot pants and stiletto fuck-me pumps on the CMT Awards show thing. This is a sample of the lyrics:
I dug my key into the side of his pretty little suped up 4 wheel drive,
carved my name into his leather seats.
I took a Louisville Slugger to both head lights,
slashed a hole in all 4 tires.
maybe next time he'll think before he cheats.
What kind of message does this send to our impressionable young people? Seriously! This is just ridiculous. That is a stupid reaction to a lover's spat. A grossly misguided account of property destruction over the loss of a boyfriend. Everyone knows that a scorned woman uses a Louisville Slugger on the windows, not just the headlights.

Plus, who in his right mind would cheat on Carrie Underwood.

That's a great "fuck you" song, but you sure know how to improve it. And yeah, anyone who's dumb enough to cheat on Carrie Underwood pretty much deserves what he gets.

I have always had trouble with this song, because I agree, it sure seems like overkill. However, I can't argue with the fact that it's a damn good song. I wouldn't advocate the actions, but it speaks so powerfully. And she's the perfect person to sing it.
