WASHINGTON (AP) - Barbra Streisand is visiting the White House on Sunday but says she'll play nice. "Art," she says, "transcends politics this weekend."
Streisand, a vocal critic of President George W. Bush, has the awkward honor of visiting 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue during one of Washington's few A-list events.

Wow. Poor President Bush.
It was Daltrey who said, "I get on my knees and pray we don't get fooled again," which will be the innaugural theme song of Sarah Palin.
If the nation survives to elect another president, that is.
Way to go Roger,
One fine collection of work.
As for Mrs. Brolin, too bad you ate all of Hermosa Beach and stopped being a singer and instead of grew fat and gross.
Okay, who’d going to post that picture of her looking like the slobby old hag that she is?
The better the voice the emptier the head. (Resonance)
oh, please, that was my biggest fear in posting this thread — that we will have to see her see-through dress with those saggy boobs yet again.... NO NO NO..... don’t do it, whoever is thinking of that right now, don’t do it! :^)
...glad to see the two surviving members of The Who honored....I always liked them anyway, but the free concert they gave in New York after 9-11 was the greatest single rock performance I’ve ever seen....they tore the house down at Madison Square Garden....and that’s saying something.
I won’t post the picture.
It burns my eyes out.
The woman should be hear and not seen. Just singing too, none of that other crap.
One of the honorees was George Jones “No-Show Jones”. He is one of my favorites.
PHotos of the recepients.
Awesome to read that BB King went there, and was honored in the 90’s. I saw him play a few years ago.
And Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey being honored is really cool.
I wonder if they had an SG available for Pete to smash...
Roger? He’s not qualified or eligible, rather! What, does he claim he was born in Hawaii too? let’s see his birth certificate!
Memories: Hillary Versus Barbra Streisand
Hillary had, in fact, rushed back to the White House after getting the news that Streisandwho performed at the inaugurationhad spent a night in the plush and historic Lincoln bedroom while Hillary was grieving over her comatose father in a depressing and sterile hospital room. (The White House spin was that Hillary had returned to handle urgent business regarding her health care program.)
She had also heard that during her absence Bill, spiffy in a black-sequined tuxedo, had escorted Streisand and his mother, who had become very friendly with the singer, to the Gridiron Dinner, an annual media-politico event. There, in a party-hardy mood, the president wailed on his sax to the Coasters golden oldie, Yakety Yak.
Hillary was livid. Soon after her return, reporters noticed a vicious-looking scratch on the presidents face. Queried, White House spokeswoman Dee Dee Myers dismissed it as a shaving cut. Later, after leaving the White House, she hedged. Im the idiot who said he cut himself shaving before Id seen him. Then I saw himit was a big scratch, clearly not a shaving cut. Barbra Streisand was clearly around at the time, she said.
Tales of a bloody confrontation between the Clintons prompted by Streisands visit circulated wildly. Paul Fray put it succinctly: Hillary left Little Rock like a rocket, went back, and caught the son of a bitch. You know who got hit in the chops, who got smacked around.
and I love, absolutely love, George Jones - HE IS COUNTRY MUSIC!!!!
Nevertheless, here's hoping Daltrey does some mic turning and knocks out Babs while doing so.
great video here
Even John Entwistle in this one RIP
