McCartney Compares Global Warming Skeptics to Holocaust Deniers; I Really Love Him (Obama)
Newsbusters ^ | Fri, 06/25/2010 | By Rusty Weiss

Seems the only thing gushing more than the BP oil spill these days is the disaster brewing in Paul McCartney's mouth. In an exclusive interview with The Sun, McCartney takes a major swipe at global warming realists, er, deniers, by stating (emphasis mine):

"Sadly we need disasters like this to show people. Some people don't believe in climate warming - like those who don't believe there was a Holocaust."

Well that's putting things in perspective. I'm not sure global warming has been proven to have caused the Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion. Missed that report. Regardless, it remains unclear how the theory of global warming is in any way similar to the reality of the Holocaust.

McCartney goes on to defend President Obama from any and all criticism concerning the Gulf disaster, culminating with the revelation that he "really love(s) him."

Because nobody was really sure where your allegiances lied after the 'library' swipe at former President Bush, Paul.

McCartney starts with a blanket dismissal of the Obama critics:

"I don't accept the criticism of Barack over the oil spill."

He continues,

"If the President of the country you spilled oil in tells you off then you've just got to take it or say, 'I'm really sorry, we'll clean it up and pay for it all by next week."

Now I ask, why didn't BP think of that in the first place? All of these failed attempts and confusion in trying to 'plug the damn hole', and all Tony Hayward had to do to make things right was say, "I'm really sorry, we'll clean it up and pay for it all by next week."

Of his recent visit to the White House, McCartney recalls,

"It was such an honour. I'd heard of the prize - it's the biggest for popular music in the US. When the President gave it to me, I was so touched. I'm a huge Obama supporter. I really love him."

He also gushes,

"I think Obama's doing great. He's a smart guy."

I'm not sure what it is, but McCartney is clearly smitten (or wee-weed up) with our 'smart guy' President. Perhaps it was his spelling of the University of 'Sycacuse'. Perhaps it was his over-estimation of a tornado death toll by roughly 9,988. Maybe it was his firm grasp of geography. Or his love of Sioux City.

No word on whether it was true that Sir Paul went on to say, "He had me at 57 states."

Based on these comments it is clear that, as The Sun interview states, McCartney has been spending too much time sitting in "a darkened room lit only by scented candles ... to gather his thoughts."

Clearly the gathering isn't working. To be fair though, even the Dutch skimmers would have a tough time reigning in those thoughts.

Macca is losing whatever respect that I ever had for him by the minute lately .... and I'm a huge Beatles fan too!

To paraphrase a Godfather quote: "What a shame that such an intelligent man would make such a huge error of judgment so late in life"

The beatles ruined 1000s of young people's lives by encouraging drug use in the 60s.

Yes, hundreds of thousands. And now we're supposed to listen to this guy's political views just because he's famous, and discount his legendary bad judgement?

Maybe McCartney should give Chrissie Mathews a call.

The irony for Paul McCarney is that many of the leftist are allied with the holocaust deniers.

There is a reason McCartney was never considered to be one of the ‘smart’ Beatles. Here is proof.

I think the man has lost his mind!

OK-I have been a Beatles fan- though not a Fanatic- but now I’m embarrassed to even admit to that! There’s nothing to admire about Paul McCartney anymore.
