Some news from the Miami Herald-
Barbra Streisand's politics didn't find a wholly agreeable crowd during her Monday concert at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise.I don't like Barbara's politics either but I wouldn't throw anything at her nor should anyone else. She is entitled to her views.
As Babs traded political barbs with a George W. Bush imitator, a fan of the songstress who apparently disagreed with her politics pelted her with a beverage. And as her anti-GOP riff ended, another man in the crowd found himself being escorted out of the center as he shouted at Streisand.
Streisand shrugged both incidents off, saying some people would do better to buy her records than come to her shows.
A similar scenario unfolded during Streisand's concert earlier this month at Madison Square Garden in New York, during which the singer used the F-word in shouting down a heckler.
Most celebrities have thin skin. A certain degree of arrogance comes with stardom. If Ms. Streisand doesn't want to be criticized aka used as a verbal bullseye(Again I'm not condoning physical violence), she needs to keep her political views private. As Harry Truman said, "If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen."
Or better yet Barbara, get your own blog. Just don't do it at Blogspot.
