Boehner versus the Beatle

Human Events' Connie Hair gets Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) to demand an apology from Paul McCartney, after the former member of Wings* accepted the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song from President Obama and used the occasion to be thankful that America had a president "who knows what a library is."


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.

What are the odds on an apology? Slimmer, probably, than the odds of Drudge picking Hair's story up.

*and some other band, I think
