Barbra Streisand? Really? Barbara Fraking Streisand? Seriously Democrats? Really?
If there is one sure way to turn a big portion of the “in-betweeners” away so they make a beeline to the other candidate, it would be to let people like Barbara Streisand and Susan Sarandon open their mouths publicly. If I were the Obama campaign, I would put out the word to find better talent for fundraisers and pay some of the douchey Hollywood wanks to shut the hell up for a couple months.
All they do is fuel the fire in the wrong direction in the worst possible time – that space of time during an election cycle after the conventions but before the real debates start. This public perception battleground is a key factor where “average” people start to lose patience with all the bullshit ads, stupid mudslinging, etc. etc. It’s like watching two 13-year-old girls have an argument.
And Barbara Flipping Streisand? Jesus Tapdancing Christ. Don’t any of these nutsacks watch South Park?
