Skip to comments.Sir Paul McCartney, Deep as a Thimble

What is it with these left-wing entertainers that have to insult people while they accept their dubious awards? Why can't these lefties just graciously accept an award and go about their business without going out of their way to let the world know about their politics? But once again, this time with Paul McCartney, we have an entertainer forcing his politics on the world in an inappropriate manner.
While accepting the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, McCartney decided that the celebratory air of the event was a good time make to fun of George W. Bush and pump up the Obammessiah.
After the last eight years, the former Beatle joked, its great to have a president who knows what a library is.
This from a guy whose entire songwriting career is well known to be as deep as a thimble philosophically speaking. And this is not to even mention that this is from a guy whose country voted Neville Chamberlain into office once upon a time!
Let's face facts, here. Paul McCartney was the bubblegum, the popcorn, the fluff of the Beatles. For depth one has to look to John Lennon's dark cynicism or George Harrison's more thoughtful musings on life and religion. Even after the Beatles both Lennon and Harrison took their themes and memes more seriously than Mr. Paul "Silly Love Songs" McCartney ever did...

Just another metrosexual girly man who should return to the UK. Always thought he was a girly man wayyyyy before that phrase was invented.
The smartest Beatles are dead. Mind you, that’s not saying very much at all — but Paul and Ringo are definitely detritus.
This goes to show that McCartney doesn’t know that Laura Bush was a librarian!
I’m disappointed by Paul. I always thought he was shrewder than this. I thought he was smart enough to avoid this sort of remark. I’d expect him to play it friendly, but down the middle. Fairly harmless joke, but one he didn’t need to tell. Still admire and respect his talent.
If you’re on Facebook stop by and show him some love. http://www.facebook.com/PaulMcCartney?ref=ts
I will not be buying any of his creations.
Is there any proof that Zero knows what a library is. His two books are about himself, and for a “Constitutional Scholar” he has nothing published.
That’s really funny!
Never been a fan of Paul. Just another idiot entertainer.
when i think of paul mccartney i think of a man who married a young woman who was clearly snookering him for his cash and he thought a pre nup unneccessary. the guy is clearly not very bright and very much a knee jerk reactor. two qualities when combined define a liberal and a hateful one at that.
Paul is a pot head who married a gimpy former prostitute who was a nut case. Still a better choice than Yoko.
George was the nicest Beatle and the best individual songwriter in the band. Ringo was the second nicest.
"I told the White House that I've got some real good Bush zingers.!"
"I'm still waiting for my callback!"
From a dude who hasn’t written a decent song in 40 years.
I would bet that someone from obama’s regime gave him that line and he had no idea how impactful it would be. That’s one more reason you should take the high road all the time, dumb ass.
Imagine an American being Knighted or something and cracking wise about sir charles or something.
That’s kinda cool. He never did write overly complicated songs.
Sorry, but no, that is wrong. George was the best muscician in the band. He had help writing the songs he did publish and got sued for plagerizing "Here Comes The Sun."
While My Guitar Gently Weeps was probably his best song.
You're thinking of "My Sweet Lord", which was lifted from "He's So Fine."
