  • John Lennon Might Maybe Have Been a Secret Republican

    Get ready, hippy liberals. Because you are about to have your entire mind exploded to death!

    Fred Seaman [Lennon's personal assistant] worked alongside the music legend from 1979 to Lennon's death at the end of 1980 and he reveals the star was a Ronald Reagan fan who enjoyed arguing with left-wing radicals who reminded him of his former self…

    He says, "John, basically, made it very clear that if he were an American he would vote for Reagan because he was really sour on (Democrat) Jimmy Carter…

    "I also saw John embark in some really brutal arguments with my uncle, who's an old-time communist… He enjoyed really provoking my uncle… Maybe he was being provocative… but it was pretty obvious to me he had moved away from his earlier radicalism.

    Wait a minute! Hold the phone! Do you mean to tell me that multi-millionaire John Lennon expressed support for Ronald Reagan — who took office a month-and-a-half after Lennon's death — at the tail end of the least effective Democratic administration in several decades? And he thought — during a time when Soviets were lining up in the driving snow for bread — that Communism is silly? According to some guy?

    Well, that…

    changes…

    EVERYTHING!

    I'm sure that a lot of liberals are pretty embarrassed right now in light of this new information. I'd expect a pretty big windfall of conversions to conservativism any time now.

  • Will Sir Paul McCartney's Thoughtless Remarks Spark Another War Between U.S. and Britain? Probably!


    Those predator drones that Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer requested have been successfully deployed to the Mexican border this week. However — while this might seem like a happy day for all white good Americans who rightly feel that highly sophisticated and expensive military robot planes are a rational means of defense against dishwashers and busboys sneaking into the country to take all our valuable dishwasher and busboy jobs — one can't help but feel that those drones could maybe have been put to better use.

    Like, for example, blowing up the shit out of Paul McCartney's un-American ass for besmirching the good name of our former president

    Paul McCartney won an award from the Library of Congress, because even though he had probably the third-best solo career as a Beatle, Ringo is not yet properly recognized for his songwriting prowess and the other two are dead. Sir Paul played a concert for President and Mrs. Obama.

    At the end of the concert, Paul McCartney made a joke. He said: "After the last eight years, it’s good to have a president that knows what a library is."

    What?! The?! Fuck?!?! So, Sir Paul "The Walrus" McCartney thinks he can come into our country and win an award from our Library of Congress and play a concert for our First Family and then make a light-hearted joke about our national laughing stock, huh?! No! No way! That is super disrespectful, and I, for one, demand an apology. Who's got my back?

    Human Events' Connie Hair gets Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) to demand an apology from Paul McCartney…

    "Like millions of other Americans, I have always had a good impression of Paul McCartney and thought of him as a classy guy, but I was surprised and disappointed by the lack of grace and respect he displayed at the White House. I hope he'll apologize to the American people for his conduct which demeaned him, the White House and President Obama."

    Not good enough! I demand Paul McCartney perform another private concert for me and my friends, after which he can issue his apology. Furthermore, I demand he not play any songs from his post-Beatles career — because, come on, right? — with the possible exception of "Maybe I'm Amazed," which when you think about it, was really actually written before Paul left the Beatles, so that kind of is seen as a gray area anyway. Am I right people? We demand satisfaction! And "Helter Skelter"!
