12/08/2005: John Lennon, conservative?!?
Via Scott Lemieux, here's the most self-deceived music criticism you'll ever read -- and that's saying something -- in which the NRO's Ned Rice claims that John Lennon's leftism was "ambiguous." I'm not kidding:
But what of that series of contradictions known as John Lennon's personal politics? Would Lennon today be considered a conservative, a liberal, or more of an Arnold Schwarzenegger type? The answer might surprise you, especially given John's place on the (almost certainly mythical) Nixon's Enemies List.
