Imagine There's No Double-Taxation of Corporate Income: John Lennon Swung Right Late In Life?

Closet conservative and Reagan fan?

John Lennon was a closet Republican, who felt a little embarrassed by his former radicalism, at the time of his death - according to the tragic Beatles star's last personal assistant.

Fred Seaman worked alongside the music legend from 1979 to Lennon's death at the end of 1980 and he reveals the star was a Ronald Reagan fan who enjoyed arguing with left-wing radicals who reminded him of his former self.

In new documentary Beatles Stories, Seaman tells filmmaker Seth Swirsky Lennon wasn't the peace-loving militant fans thought he was while he was his assistant.

Interesting. As much as I've heard and read about Lennon's life, I don't recall anything from the late 70's. I was just a kid, but it seemed like he was out of the high-profile, professional radical business by then. On the other hand, being a Republican at that time would have been the radical thing, especially in his social circle.

Hooboy. That's muy lame, but it's topical.

Added: Now we know why Yoko felt this way . . .
