I would have thrown tomatoes at her. Of course, I wouldn't be there in the first place.

Streisand Has Outburst at NYC Concert

NEW YORK (AP) - The most riveting moment of Barbra Streisand's Madison Square Garden concert was one of the only unscripted ones.

Streisand endured jeers as she interjected a political skit into Monday night's show, exchanging zingers with a celebrity impersonator playing George Bush as a bumbling idiot.

Though most of the crowd offered polite applause during the slightly humorous routine, it went on a bit too long, especially for those who just wanted to hear Streisand sing.

"Come on, be polite!" the well-known liberal implored. But one heckler wouldn't let up. And finally, Streisand let him have it.

"Shut the (expletive) up!" Streisand bellowed, drawing wild applause. "Shut up if you can't take a joke!"

With that one F-word, the jeers ended. And the message was delivered - no one gets away with trying to upstage Barbra Streisand, especially not in her hometown.

First: Jokes need to b e funny

Second: if President Bush is a bumbling idiot, what does that make the Democrats he is always outsmarting?

Best part.

Shut the (expletive) up!" Streisand bellowed, drawing wild applause. "Shut up if you can't take a joke!"

With that one F-word, the jeers ended. And the message was delivered _ no one gets away with trying to upstage Barbra Streisand, especially not in her hometown.

Once the outburst (which Streisand later apologized for) was over, Streisand noted that "the artist's role is to disturb," and delivered a message of tolerance before launching into a serenely beautiful rendition of "Somewhere."
So scream STFU at a fan who paid ridiculous money to hear the dumb bitch sing but was tired of her antics and then preach a message of tolerance. Liberal Hypocracy? Check.

Whatever happened to entertainers at least pretending to appreciate the people who, by their patronage, make it possible for them to be entertainers in the first place? Hypocrisy? check. Insufferable conceit? check.

Classic JAP behavior.
