The Luckiest People

16Sep08

Barack Obama is one of the luckiest people in the world. After 8 years as a state senator, then abandoning his U.S. Senate seat when he was just getting started, he finds himself with the Democratic nomination for president.

I’ve got some advice for Barack Obama. If you want to win this election, it would be better not to surround yourself with all the other luckiest people – like Barbra Streisand.

The Oscar-winning singer and actress was to perform Tuesday night on Obama’s behalf in Beverly Hills... a two-step evening with a reception and dinner costing $28,500 a person followed by a later event featuring Streisand at $2,500 a ticket.

Yup – while the country is trying to figure out how the meltdown on Wall Street will impact our financial security, Barack is bonding with Barbra – one of the wealthiest, blindly liberal, unrelateable people on the planet.

Streisand has been outspoken in criticizing John McCain’s selection of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate on the Republican presidential ticket.

In a battle of reputations – Streisand’s forty years as a popular perform versus Palin’s two weeks of rock stardom, Americans will take Palin any day of the week.

“This calculated, cynical ploy to pull away a small percentage of Hillary’s women voters from Barack Obama will not work,” Streisand wrote on her Web page. “We are not that stupid!”

(Isn’t it interesting that when John Kerry showed the poor judgment to select John Edwards as his running mate, no one objected? No one cried foul! How cold and calculating – picking a guy with limited experience and questionable character to be inches from the presidency just because he was a southerner?)

How many votes does Streisand cost Barack has he tries to argue his basic normalcy against Palin Power?

    Todd,
    I can’t stand Barbra Streisand (queen of James Brolin), Cheryl Crow (do you think she uses 1 sheet of toilet paper to wipe her a$$),Sean Penn (idiot), Bono (who is not an American citizen),Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow ( both stay in England, please), Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins (who share bastard children),P.Diddy (who can’t speak English), Ludicris (need I say more) Oprah(loud-mouthed and racist), Matt Damon and Leonardo DiCaprio (they can’t get their facts straight),Lindsay Lohan (JOKE!) Bruce Springstein (who can understand anything he sings)and George Clooney (only has eyes for his pot-bellied pigs.) To name some of the BP, they need to shut up and try to act or sing or whatever their talent is supposed to be.
