No Class

More thoughts on Sir Paul McCartney after receiving an award at the Library of Congress saying: “After the last eight years, it’s great to have a president who knows what a library is.”

What makes what McCartney said especially reprehensible is in his country they have all of these rules, protocols etc on how you address royalty, what you are allowed to say, when you are allowed to speak, how you are supposed to genuflect-all these faggy procedures based on royalty.

So he comes here in our version of royalty-the White House in an official U.S. ceremony- and we don't ask for much. You can call the President by his name. You don't have to bow down to our leader. You can shake his hand or give him a hug. And this guy goes and disrespects the office like he did?

Imagine if Paul Simon went to England to receive an award from the Queen and during his acceptance speech he said: "It's great to receive this award from this Queen-because the last Queen you guys had was a real cunt."

What do you think the reaction would have been?
