Yeah, I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER.
YESTERDAY (or was it, perhaps, THE NIGHT BEFORE?), Sir Paul McCartney was feted at The White House by President Obama (well, SOMETHING had to lure him to GET BACK to the White House and certainly neither Memorial Day nor FIXING A HOLE in the Gulf of Mexico were cause enough to do it).
But throw a tribute for Paul McCartney for winning the Library of Congress Songwriter Award and… well, that’s all the HELP we needed to get THE FOOL ON THE HILL back to the White House. Seriously, does that really rank higher than Memorial Day or the Gulf Oil Spill? Yep, it sure does if you’re Barack Oh-Blame-Us.
And so it was, that they would all COME TOGETHER. Platters of platitudes and WORDS OF LOVE were served all around. Of course, Sir Paul serenaded MICHELLE. And, bless her soul, she seemed to still be proud to be an American (Sorry, I meant to save that for a Lee Greenwood posting).
Yeah-yeah-yeah, I could go on and on with more clever song title insertions, but let’s just get to the bottom line: McCartney should stick to what he does best: Writing SILLY LOVE SONGS. When it comes to that, Sir Paul was/is one of the best. Lord knows it’s been a LONG AND WINDING ROAD, since he first started performing ALL THOSE YEARS AGO.
Don’t get me wrong… I think McCartney richly deserves the songwriter’s award. But when it comes to politics, I think Paul should have just said, “Thanks for the dinner and the plaque.” and then just LET IT BE.
Unfortunately Sir Paul couldn’t keep his Beatle Boot out of his mouth, and resorted to a cheap shot one would expect from Team Obama. But there was “Beatle Paul” showing what an ignorant ass he has become I think Sir Paul… well, here… just LISTEN TO WHAT THE MAN SAID:
I wouldn’t worry about McCartney’s comment too much, however. Keep in mind, this was said by the man who thought he didn’t need a pre-nup when he married Heather Mills…
