Paul McCartney is still a jerk

When last we heard from Paul McCartney, the superannuated superstar was informing us that George Bush, whose wife is a librarian, doesn’t know what a library is. Now he’s saying skeptics of global warming, who pay attention to things like history, don’t know what the Holocaust was. Here comes The Sun:

THE shocking images of oil-covered wildlife and ruined beaches across the Gulf of Mexico have horrified millions.

But passionate green campaigner Sir Paul McCartney believes the environmental disaster may have a silver lining, with the search for clean, renewable energy now being pushed forward.

The Beatles legend said: “Sadly we need disasters like this to show people. Some people don’t believe in climate warming – like those who don’t believe there was a Holocaust.

“But the facts indicate that there’s something going on and we’ve got to be aware of it if we want our kids to inherit a decent world, not a complete nightmare of a planet – clean, renewable energy is for starters.”

I’m not sure how the BP oil spill proves global warming, but then again, I didn’t write “Silly Love Songs.” The point is, if you disagree with Paul McCartney, you’re a Nazi.

To prove his dedication to giving our kids a decent world, McCartney has sworn off all petroleum products and now tours by pack-mule caravan. Ha ha, just kidding! He flies around all over the place, same as always. He doesn’t care. He just wants to tell you what to do. He was in the Beatles, you know.
