Barbra Streisand handles Madison Square Garden heckler
Superstar singer/actress Barbra Streisand appeared at Madison Square Garden this week, the third stop of her twenty city farewell tour. During the concert a member of the audience who took objection to her lampooning George W. Bush began to heckle her. Ms Streisand hurled a few well deserved expletives at the heckler and told Madison Square Garden officials to refund his money. Ms. Streisand is a true democrat who has raised huge amounts of money for Democratic candidates and causes. It is indeed a pleasure to see a Democrat give back what has been hurled at her. George Bush supporters have such sensitive ears. They can dish it out but apparently they can't take it. Most Democrats like to be morally correct, but most conservatives don't give a damn about morals.....and I am including most Religious conservatives in this group too. Democrats are always expected to be polite. Some polite Democrats took offense at what Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said about George Bush being the devil. Yet they had practically nothing to say about Dick Cheney saying "F____ you" to Senator Patrick Leahy or Rush Limbaugh, the drug addicted pundit calling David Benoir "a devil". The time has come to give them back what they give us. The time for being Mr. or Ms. Nice Guy (or Girl) has gone. We are living in a time where people have lost their jobs for having bumper stickers that endorse candidates other than Bush. People have been forced to leave airplanes and change clothes if they are caught wearing anti-Bush apparrel. Kudos to people like Barbra Streisand, Kanye West, Keith Olbermann and the Dixie Chicks who continue to speak out against this unpopular president.
