DAILY DRIVEL — How Long Before Paul Claims He’s Really Sean’s Dad?

Little by little, Paul McCartney seems to be laying claim to everything good the Beatles ever did, even things previously attributed more to the late John Lennon .

The AP just moved this little ditty:

"Report: McCartney says he’s the political Beatle
LONDON — Paul McCartney claims that he was the real politicized figure in The Beatles, not John Lennon, according to an interview published Sunday.
McCartney was quoted as saying it was he who first raised concerns over the Vietnam war within the group and advocated their anti-war stance.
Fans have long regarded Lennon, who wrote songs such as “Revolution” and — in later years — “Give Peace a Chance,” as the group’s authentic political voice.
But McCartney claimed that his meeting with philosopher Bertrand Russell in the mid-1960s sparked his own — and eventually Lennon’s — curiosity about world affairs.
Following his talk with Russell, McCartney said he told “the guys, particularly John (Lennon), about this meeting and saying what a bad war this was,” The Sunday Times quoted McCartney as saying in the interview.
The newspaper said McCartney was interviewed in Britain’s Prospect magazine, which is published on Wednesday.
According to the newspaper, McCartney said he believes his stance has inspired the work against African poverty carried out in recent years by Bob Geldof and U2’s Bono ."

The way things are going, pretty soon Macca will be telling us it was really him in the bag with Yoko in that hotel room …

While I’m in a snarky mood … I was channel surfing one night over the weekend and caught this item on Joel McHale ‘s very funny Comedy Central show "The Soup" (speaking of snarky). He had a clip of Tom Cruise making an appearance on "The Hills" Aftershow, a Canadian-produced cable show where dingbats sit around and discuss the deep sociopolitical fallout of a just-aired episode of "The Hills."

Tom. Dude. You don’t have anything better to do?

You really are dumber’n a box of rocks, aren’t you?
