All You Need Is Hate

The "No Drama" Obama Demeanor Exhibiting a "Clenched Jew"

“Well, at least he's still got Sir Paul McCartney. At the White House last week, the 67-year-old crooner was gushing in much the same manner as his own groupies did at Shea Stadium in 1965. ‘I'm a big fan, he's a great guy’, McCartney told American critics of President Barack Obama. ‘So lay off him, he's doing great’. Later, McCartney serenaded the First Lady with a rendition of Michelle and, receiving a [Gershwin] prize from the Library of Congress, took a cheap shot at President George W. Bush that was as unfunny as it was unoriginal. […] McCartney's banalities were an example of a transatlantic dissonance that is all too apparent these days. […] That reality has now begun to dawn on some of Obama's natural constituency — Hollywood and the Left. The ‘no drama Obama’ demeanor that served him so well on the campaign trail is now becoming a liability. […] Then there was Gibbs illustrating Obama's passionate concern for the people of the Gulf by relating that he had said ‘damn’ and exhibited a ‘clenched jaw’.”

Oh, to be young and cool and fawned-over by adoring fans ... must be great. These days McCartney has to work at being cool. A favorite technique among such has-beens is to suck-up to the current idol and take cheap shots at someone who is conveniently absent from the spotlight, microphone, and teleprompter. Furthermore, ‘I'm a big fan, he's a great guy’ is an obvious bit of presumptuousness.

Liberals are constantly accusing conservatives of hatefulness. That is, of course, their prerogative. But I see no sign of restraint on the left when it comes to spewing venom that tingles up their legs and dribbles down their chins. Now they're adapting it to crooning. They're resourceful; I'll give 'em that.
