Paul McCartney was given the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song by President Obama last night at the White House on the behalf of the Library of Congress. In true liberal fashion Sir Paul didn't waste the opportunity to bash former President Bush:
“After the last eight years, it’s great to have a president who knows what a library is.”
I guess Sir Paul doesn't realize that President Bush read three books per week during his time at The White House. Nor does he realize that these books were on very heavy subject matter; he wasn't reading Sue Gafton novels that one can finish in a day or two (not there is anything wrong with Gafton books).
President Obama must have taken some of what John Stewart said about all his extra activities since the oil spill to justify the time by saying:
Gulf Coast, “so rich in musical heritage” and that “part of what gets us through tough times is music.” He said the Beatles “helped to lay the soundtrack for an entire generation.”
His performance included:
Got to Get You Into My Life
Let it Be
Hmm, he should have played the Tax Man. That would have been fitting.
