Paul McCartney: Another Celebrity Embarrassment For Obama

How do they say, shut up and sing.

McCartney: "Thank You America For Voting In Mr Obama"
Ex Beatle Sir Paul McCartney was given a special gong at the MTV Europe Music Awards Thursday in his home city of Liverpool -- and used the event to hail US president-elect Barack Obama.

McCartney was presented with the Ultimate Legend Award, created especially for him, by U2 frontman Bono, who compared him to the pope and described his work as "immortal".

Accepting the honour, McCartney thanked fellow Beatles John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, adding: "Many years ago, there were four little boys born here in Liverpool and we went on to do quite well.

"Thanks to all my family, to all you for coming along, to everyone in Great Britain, to everyone in America for voting in Mr Obama."

I was going to say he doesn't have a leg to stand on, but then I remembered reading that he's now divorced.

Some Blacks Not Getting Obama Victory

After the way the just ended campaign was shaped and conducted this was way too predictable.

Chicago: Arrests at Obama Victory Rally, Woman Yells "White [expletive], [expletive] McCain--you White Police Can't do Nothing Anymore"...Then Proceeds to Slap a White Cop.....
Celita Hart, 19, stood silently in court today when she appeared for a bond hearing.

Prosecutors said Hart, who is black, yelled " 'White [expletive], [expletive] McCain--you white police can't do nothing anymore.'" With that, she reached through the window of a squad car and slapped a white male officer in the face,according to Assistant State's Atty. Lorraine Scaduto.

The incident occurred after police responded to a crowd of people celebrating Obama's win on the corner of 69th Street and Western Avenue. Hart, of the 7100 block of South Rockwell Street, was charged with aggravated battery of a police officer and was ordered her held in lieu of $10,000 bail.

Others were arrested for popping off some victory gunshots to celebrate Obama's victory. This type of thinking is sad.

Palin's To Blame

At least that is what some bright and smarmy "republican" insiders are saying about the McCain defeat. I have tremendous respect for John McCain. We disagree on many points, but it doesn't diminish the respect I have for him. I respect Sarah Palin tremendously.

I have no respect for these "republican" insiders. Zip. Nada, Zero. They are a virus.

I say let's find out who they are and name them. Put up their photographs. Put a name and a face to their slanderous musings. That way, real Republicans can shun them and make them unemployable.

We do not need them and we should give them the opportunity to find employment elsewhere in a position reflecting their expertise. Say, as a horse crap shoveler.

Craig Shirley, who I am honored to have as a friend, wrote what I think is the finest and best written book on President Ronald Reagan, Reagan's Revolution: The Untold Story of the Campaign That Started It All (buy it because you'll learn more about Reagan and politics than you will anywhere else).

Craig also has a fine article concerning the "republicans" who are trying to slander Palin so they can obtain cheap tickets to an Obama inauguration party where they can hob nob with the new socialist DC elite.

Sarah Palin's Fresh Hell
But I would rather speak today of Governor Palin and the cut and run crowd of the Republican Party.

I think it is not a coincidence that many hail from New York City, as it seems they have channeled the "Lost Generation," moaning, whining, bewailing the fact that Sarah Palin is not.... one of them.

You can see them, these Manhattanite Republicans, sitting in the Blue Room of the Algonquin Hotel, crying into their arugula salads as liveried waiters bring them more designer water and ask if they would like more freshly ground pepper. A generation ago, the same elitists bewailed "that actor" taking over the Republican Party.

None of them thought as highly of Reagan then as they profess to now.

Few have ever gotten their hands dirty running a campaign and some like David Brooks are in need of an ideological booster seat.

Name the slimes. Maybe then they will be true to their devious lying self-aggrandizing hearts and work with the new administration.
