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."
"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.
