Add Streisand to the list of Anti-Bush performances

From Yahoo News:

Before a capacity crowd of some 16,000 people at South Philadelphia’s Wachovia Center, Streisand gave assured renditions of standards from her long career as a singer and actress…

The show also featured a skit where an actor playing Bush uttered such lines as, “I’m concerned about the national debt, so I’m selling Canada,” and “If I cared about the polls I would have run for president of Poland.”

Streisand, 64, a longtime liberal activist, said she was coming out of retirement to raise money for her foundation, which supports a range of causes related to the environment, education, health care and other issues.

Edit: Don’t get it confused and think that I’m a Barbara Stresiand fan. I just think it’s cool that she used this opportunity to speak out on what she feels. Not everyone has the power to do it, reach a large audience, and get away with it.

  1. Barbara can go to hell. By the way, I thought all the Hollywood liberals were supposed to leave the country if Bush got elected! Take a hike Babs!
