Barbra Streissand is That Stupid

Barbra Streisand says that "women are not that stupid," in reference to John McCain picking Sarah Palin as his running mate. Apparently Barbra thinks women are stupid, just "not that stupid."

I and Republicans know that women are not at all stupid. Alice is very intelligent and energetic, and among many her accomplishments she is the founder and CEO of a very successful small business, Vulcan Incorporated, in what was and is a male-dominated industry, industrial baling wire manufacture and distribution. My late first wife Marilynn was also very intelligent and energetic, and a staunch Republican just like Alice.

Barbra uses her great voice to provide a showcase to display her mediocre intellect, since without her celebrity no one would pay any attention to her drivel. When I read her diatribe against Sarah Palin, it reminded me of the very words Hillary used to denigrate Obama during the primaries: "no foreign policy experience, no national experience and limited state government experience."

Only in this case Barbra is talking about the candidate for Vice President, and Hillary was talking about the candidate for President.

Barbra, there is a difference. I know this will be difficult for you to comprehend, so I'll type really slowly. It's OK if you move your lips as you read, Barbra, and to ask for help with the multisylabbic words. We know you struggled to finish high school.

Barbra, John McCain is running for President, and he has a wealth of experience, unlike your candidate, Obama. Joe Biden is running for Vice President, and has a lot of experience lying, plagiarizing, and making a fool of himself. In other words, he is a John Kerry clone, a quintessential Democrat.

And you, Barbra, are a quintessential Democrat supporter. You are so used to Democrat special interest politics that you think Republicans operate in the same cynical fashion. Instead of applauding President Bush for making choices based on merit, Democrats denigrated - there's that big word again, Barbra (it means defamed, disparaged, or belittled) - Bush's appointments of Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice to the highest positions in our government ever held by Blacks.

Barbra, when you say "women are not that stupid," you qualify as the exception that proves the rule. And some advice from me: stick to singing, and drop personal appearances. Your voice is not the only thing you have that fills up a room now.
