Paul, You Stop Now. Please.
Like most Americans of my generation, I love Paul McCartney's music. I guess that's why it irritates me all the more when he says stuff like this.
Being a global-warming skeptic is equal to being a Holocaust denier? Oh, puhleeze! Give me a royal break! I can overlook Paul's rather girlish gushing over Barack Obama, but that line was a bit much.
As an aside, when musicians and entertainers make such overtly partisan political statements, I wonder if they realize that they're alienating half their audience, at least in America. Maybe they don't care. At least until it hits them where it hurts. The pocketbook.
