More Evidence That Lennon Was A Reagan Fan

This whole clip is great but it’ll really make you smile at about the 2:50 mark. Listen carefully and you’ll even hear Lennon mention the Tea Party!

    Maybe not so much “philosophical and political poles apart”. Could it be that Reagan’s genuine warmth won Lennon over that night?

    Lennon had a really low tolerance for b.s. and ended up disavowing all the activist leeches who surrounded him upon his arrival to NYC in the early 70′s.

    Of course, there’s no accounting for his devotion to Yoko. But I believe he was still separated from her at this point so maybe he was thinking more clearly.

    I always wondered what it would have been like with just John, George and Ringo! ;)

    Has anyone heard the story of the song “Revolution” being written after Lennon was asked by Bill Ayers to support “the cause?”

    Here’s the real story: Timothy Leary, not Ayers asked Lennon to write a song for his “party” so Lennon said, “How about something like Come Together, Join The Party?” Leary’s party fizzled but it was a moot point anyway because Lennon took the song in an entirely different direction. Afterwards Leary tried to claim some
    ownership of the song and Lennon told him to get lost. Ironic, because when Chuck Berry heard the song he responded to the lifted Berry lyrics by having his lawyer contact Lennon. Lennon’s very clever response, “Sure I lifted the lyrics because I’m a big Chuck Berry fan. A shame he’s gonna sue me because I was about to do an album of oldies with TWO of Chuck’s songs.” Chuck saw the light, dropped the suit and reaped the royalty benefits of having a couple of tunes on a John Lennon record. – Irony

    Why is CBS broadcasting football games in Beanerish? CALL CBS right now at 212-975-3247 and tell them to quit pandering to Obama’s illegal voters.

    Then call Obama at 202-456-1111 and tell him to quit sodomizing The United States Of America!

    If you can dig it up there was also a clip from an interview that John Lennon gave to Bill Snyder on his tv talk show where he spoke of his disdain for the idol worship of JFK by a large number of Americans, because the man was just a politician and not God.

    Cue forward to 2008 to the arrival of The One…

    True Reagan was the Governor of California in ’74 and that clip was from then. The Brent Musberger clip was from 1995- when the Beatles Anthology was airing on ABC- 7 years after President Reagan’s two terms.
    BTW George Harrison was disgusted by what he saw in the Haight Asbury district in 1967.
