Barbra Streisand is backing Shrillary Clinton

So far, we've got Oprah backing Obama, and now Babs Streisand is stepping forward to offer her support to Shrillary.

Apparently, Shrillary can bring "historic change!", "respect in the global community!", "a strong economy!", and "universal healthcare!" to the United States.


Perez Hilton has the press release. Read and enjoy, especially when Babs feels the need to drone on and on towards the end about her many accomplishments. You know, judging from this press release, Babs may have accomplished more in her lifetime than Shrillary has -- maybe she could run!

Today I endorsed Hillary Clinton for President. Below is the announcement the Clinton campaign released to the media with my endorsement statement.

Barbra Streisand Endorses Hillary Clinton

Legendary filmmaker, artist, and Democratic activist, Barbra Streisand, today endorsed Hillary Clinton for President. Streisand cited Clinton's ability to bring about change and the historic nature of her campaign as reasons why she is supporting Hillary's candidacy.

"Madame President of the United States...it's an extraordinary thought. We truly are in a momentous time, where a woman's potential has no limitations," said Streisand. "Hillary Clinton has already proven to a generation of women that there are no limits for success. She is driven by her passion for public service and her belief in the enormous potential of our country. Smart, capable and strong in her convictions, Hillary has transcended the dictates of what is thought to be possible for our time.

"Hillary is a powerful voice for change as we find our country at an important crossroads. Under her leadership, our country will regain its respect within the global community. She will prioritize issues of global climate change, universal healthcare and rebuilding a strong economy. After 8 long years, the public will once again have faith in their government.

"Another former first lady, Eleanor Roosevelt once wrote, 'In government, in business, and in the professions there may be a day when women will be looked upon as persons. We are, however, far from that day as yet.' More than 50 years later 'that day' is now upon us... and Hillary Clinton is ready to shatter through that glass ceiling for all women."

Streisand has been working on behalf of Democratic candidates for over forty years, performing at fundraisers and participating in campaign events. In addition, the Streisand Foundation has raised millions for causes including the environment, women's equality as well as human and civil rights and liberties.

"I'm honored to have Barbra's support," said Clinton. "Barbra has used her immense talent to be an advocate for truth, justice, and fairness and I deeply appreciate her confidence in my candidacy as we work together to change the direction of our nation."

Barbra Streisand is a singer, theatre and film actress, composer, film producer and director. She has won Oscars for Best Actress and Best Original Song as well as multiple Emmy Awards, Grammy Awards, and Golden Globe Awards. She is considered one of the most commercially and critically successful female entertainers in modern history."

You know, someone might want to check that Eleanor Roosevelt quote though.

Where does she get the idea that Hillary wants universal healthcare?

Hillary is touting universal health coverage; mandated health INSURANCE.

Darn, I thought for sure she'd endorse Huckabee.

rebuild a strong economy? ... (Below threshold)

rebuild a strong economy? if 4.6% unemployment, wages rising faster than inflation, years of uninterrupted job growth, 3-4% GDP growth during a poor lending and housing period with $90+/bbl oil isn't a strong economy - then what exactly is? And how will massively increasing taxes and federal spending bring it about?

Oh, sorry, Hollywood liberals don't need to think about that sort of thing. I guess if you're going for the part of the 4.6% that actually wants a job vote, then 'right on, sista!'

Don't forget, she was named after Sir Edmund Hillary even though she was born before he climbed Everest.

I'd say something polite, like:

"Look, some one spell checked it for her."
"Who would have though she could put two cognitive sentences together in a single paragraph."

but I can't because I know better. Her blog was/is a dead giveaway.
She has problems with the english language because she's ignorant.

Frank Zappa said it best "Shut up and play yer guitar" which could easily translate to "Shut up Babs, your ignorance is blinding."

Yes, but did She also get the endorsement of Bab's humungous shnozz?

The Eleanor Roosevelt quote was from "Women in Politics," Good Housekeeping, April 1940, 45. It was cited by Nancy A. Walker in "Women's Magazines, 1940-1960: Gender Roles and teh Popular Press."

More than 50 years later 'that day' is now upon us...

Wow. And all this time I thought I WAS looked upon as a person. Little did I know I won't be until Hillary is elected.
