Hello, Goodbye Mr. McCartney


By: Neil Braithwaite

You Won’t See Me ever buying a ticket to a Paul McCartney concert after his remarks in the east room of the White House after being given the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song. And I’ve Got a Feeling that many McCartney fans won’t Dig It when they find out.

After the ceremony and concert, Paul McCartney told the White House crowd that, “After the last eight years, it’s great to have a President who knows what a library is.”

Nobody I Know would ever condone such a rude and demeaning comment in the confines of the White House – especially after just being honored there. But McCartney couldn’t Let It Be and acted just like a Little Child waiting for the perfect time to embarrass himself.

The elitist audience clapped and cheered McCartney’s repugnant comment when No Reply would have been the respectful response.

We all sometimes get in trouble for Things We Said Today, but there’s a time and There’s a Place for comments such as this, and the White House is definitely not the place.

Baby, You’re a Rich Man Mr. McCartney, but that doesn’t give you the right to bash any former president in our White House.

Maybe you can make comments like that on some Magical Mystery Tour down The Long and Winding Road to Penny Lane or Back in the USSR, but never at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

What You’re Doing Mr. McCartney is letting everyone know exactly What Goes On in that liberal elitist mind of yours.

And It Won’t Be Long until America peers into the Looking Glass and no longer sees a rock and roll icon, just The Fool On The Hill.

Unfortunately Mr. McCartney, you’ll have to Carry That Weight for the rest of your life.

Hello, Goodbye Mr. McCartney.
