After a recent performance at the White House, singer Paul McCartney took a shot at former president George W. Bush. Sir Paul said, “After the last eight years, it’s great to have a president who knows what a library is.” Later, when asked to apologize, McCartney asked, “Come on, where’s your sense of humor?”
In order for a comment to be humorous, it must contain a grain of truth. The truth is, George W. Bush is bilingual and has earned degrees from two Ivy League schools. The man obviously knows his way around a library.
McCartney has joined the left’s on-going attempt to smear a decent man just because he doesn’t share their world view.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, George Bush has remained remarkably silent. Although he has had many legitimate chances to criticize his successor, he has held his tongue. While his enemies are spouting insults and lies, Mr. Bush is giving us a much-needed lesson in showing class and exercising restraint.
