The results of the midterm elections last November greatly saddened Barbra Streisand. But within three days of that awful event she had picked herself up, duster herself off, and sat down to tell us why the Democrats lost.
Like the blond who stares at the red arrow on a subway map, "You are here," and asks "How do it know?" we are bound to ask, "How does Yentl know why the Democrats lost?"
More, we want to ask her why her analysis is in terms of why the Democrats lost rather than why the Republicans won. Ms. Streisand views elections as rightly being contests that Democrats ought to win because...because they ought to, they should, being morally and rationally the better people and their programs being morally and rationally better. Hence, if they don't win, it's because they failed to promote their message in the right way. It's not the product, see, so it's got to be the marketing.
For sheer contempt, chutzpah to the max, this bears an eerie similarity to Jane Fonda' (Tom Hayden-phase) declaring to an audience at Michigan State University in 1969:"I would think that if you understood what communism was, you would hope, you would pray on your knees, that we would someday become communist."

Yeah, meeskite, homely with a vengeance. If her face was her fortune, she's be bankrupt.
Her looks are the luck of the genetic draw, but her website is her deliberate choice. What awful crap!

Ms. Streisand is just another entertainer with a high school diploma pushing national defence policy to her rapt audience of equally well educated morons.
Her grasp of strategic realities and other critical threats involving the safety and wellbeing of Americans borders on the moronic.

South Park is right, she is a *itch!
Southpark is more accurate than Peter Jennings...

IMO, she still pines for a little more of this action:
