Another guy hopes to use celebrity as proxy for expertise

That guy is James Taylor. No, not that James Taylor — the James Taylor who became famous for having seen fire and having seen rain:

Singer James Taylor is speaking out against fracking in North Carolina.

Taylor, who was raised in Chapel Hill, is starring in TV spots for the Natural Resources Defense Council, the first step in what will be a major anti-fracking campaign between now and the next legislative session in May.

While “Carolina in My Mind” plays in the background, Taylor warns of the dangers of fracking …

… while I, with equal expertise, warn of the dangers of using an E-flat diminished seventh chord in third inversion in the midst of laid-back adult contemporary.

Good news for Taylor is that he has apparently been perceived as the successor to the late Andy Griffith, the left’s go-to North Carolina celebrity for pushing propaganda.
