McCartney's comment at a White House function this week galls me, as he states, "after the last eight years, it's great to have a president who knows what a library is." That slur was over the top. This, from a bloke who had less education in merry old England than a typical high school drop out has in the U.S, bad mouthing a former president (G.W. Bush) for poor education when that particular president graduated from an Ivy League school with a bachelors degree from Yale and a masters degree (MBA) from Harvard. Paul McCartney wouldn't know a library from a urinal, while Bush spent much of his young adult life in them.
This is really not a new phenomenon, however. Recall the brilliant Rhodes Scholar Cher Bono calling G.W. Bush a 'retard.' Oh, that's right. Cher was (and still is) a stupid, idiot high school drop out as well. And of course we all recall the larger than life producer and uber liberal Michael Moore constantly harping on the low intellect of G.W. Bush, when he himself was a University of Michigan-Flint dropout.
All of these celebrity dropouts berating arguably accomplished scholars and labeling them as morons is ludicrous. You celebrities should stick to what you know: music, acting, dancing, singing, sports, etc. Leave politics to people who actually cracked a book or two in their day. Unlike you celebrity cretins, who dropped out because you didn't have the brains to stick it out.
These celebrities should concentrate on their day jobs. You know, the stuff they actually know something about: music, sports, dance and film.
Leave politics to their betters.
