Paul McCartney gets an offer

Ted Nugent has taken time out of his busy slaughtering schedule and offered to protect Paul McCartney when Macca goes to Israel:

"Regardless that Paul and I have our obvious social, cultural, and culinary differences outside of music, I will not bend or waiver to voodoo religious whackjobs and neither should Paul."

"It would be my pleasure to keep this legendary musical hero safe from terrorists and mad men, and then buy him a nice dinner of tofu. I'm Dirty Harry with a ponytail, and I'm at Paul's service."

You might want to cut-out-and-keep Nugent's capsule guide to the decades-old Middle East conflict as being about "voodoo religious whackjobs" - handy, should you ever find yourself on the callback shortlist from the State Department. (I'm given to understand Sarah Palin is already writing a speech around this theme.)

Paul might want to think before taking up this offer, though - you'd have to expect that being protected by Nugent would be more likely to increase the number of people trying to attack you rather than reduce the chances of their success.
