Barbra Streisand's "Truth Alert" website posted the following:
REPUBLICAN CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE ATTACKS BARBRA STREISAND
IN ADS IN DESPERATE EFFORT TO CUT INTO CAROLYN McCARTHY LEAD
FLAGRANT USE OF FABRICATED QUOTES AND DISTORTION OF STREISAND'S COMMENTS
A Republican/Conservative candidate trying with fading hopes to unseat respected Democratic Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy made a last-ditch effort to win headlines by devising ads in which she blatantly misquoted Barbra Streisand, fabricating outrageous quotes and completely misrepresenting Ms. Streisand's deep opposition to the Iranian dictator, Saddam Hussein. An Associated Press correspondent brought the ads to the attention of Ms. Streisand's representatives Tuesday, October 15, requesting comment.
But who needs to fabricate quotes with real zingers like this?
On the other hand, Shakepeare also has a few real zingers (of a different variety than Barbra's), but Barbra used a fabricated Shakespeare quote to amuse Democrat worthies only weeks ago.
The Truth Alert post has now been altered - without explanation, apology or notice to Truth Alert readers - to read: "Ms. Streisand's deep opposition to the Iraqi dictator, Saddam Hussein."
Link via Matt Drudge, of course, who posted the snapshot of the original post before it was altered.
Ms. Streisand is just a rich, canary clown. But one really frightening aspect of her buffoonery is that as a major Democrat fundraiser, Barbra Streisand probably enjoys substantial influence in that Party.
These pictures of Kristin Cavallari and her replica Louis Vuiton handbags look almost posed, so it’s not exactly rocket science to figure out that the photographers were indeed invited guests. Plus, she was leaving a hair appointment when these photos were snapped – what better time to have your photo taken, particularly if you know it’s likely to end up blogs just like this one?Post a Comment
