Barbra Streisand slams Senator John McCain in her latest blog calling his Vice Presidential choice, Governor Sarah Palin, “a transparent and irresponsible decision all in the name of trying to win this election.”

The legendary singer calls McCain’s VP choice a “Hail Mary” saying, “[It] sent a very clear message to America about how he views female voters.”

She wrote in her blog entitled “McCain Doesn’t Get It: Women are not that stupid,” in her post included: “Women, he thinks, will vote another woman into office regardless of the candidate’s values, experience and political positions.”

The “Mirror Has Two Faces” actress wrote, “I believe John McCain chose Gov. Palin because he truly believes that women who supported Hillary–an experienced, brilliant, life-long public servant–would vote for him because his Vice President has two x chromosomes.”

She also wrote in her blog: “For months, John McCain and the Republicans went after Barack Obama for lacking the experience they felt was necessary in order to be commander in chief. Yet, on this day, an aging John McCain, who is the oldest Presidential nominee in history, chose a running mate—a person that is just a heart beat away from the Presidency—that has no foreign policy experience, no national experience and limited state government experience…. a virtual unknown who has only been Governor for a less than 2 years of a state with a population of fewer than 680,000 people…a woman who condemns a woman’s right to choose.”

The singer concluded: “John McCain has served this country… As someone who has spent over 40 years advocating on behalf of women both politically and philanthropically, as someone who was a strong supporter of Hillary Clinton and as someone who cares deeply about the health and welfare of all women, hear me Senator McCain: “This calculated, cynical ploy to pull away a small percentage of Hillary’s women voters from Barack Obama will not work. We are not that stupid!”

    I have always enjoyed Barbara’s music, but she is so far out of touch with America that it truly is sad. The real truth is, Obama beat Hillary Clinton because the American people don’t want the Clintons in Washington, that’s a fact! Obama didn’t win because he is a leader worthy of winning, he is less experienced then his own V.P. Choice, and he was told the same by him. You can have all the big events, concerts, shows and all you want, they are all going to be as filthy rags when election day comes and the American people sound off for John McCain, because we’re not going to be a welfare nation, and give health care and everything else you want to give to people who don’t even have a right to be here. The American people are looking at your fashionable, fancy style of politics, and laughing at the money and talent you flushing down the stool as you continue to roll toward hell. No you can’t, not this time, not any time you try to change this Country with your lies, and the American people are NOT as stupid, as the stupid people that show their stupidity so wonderfully for all of us to unite together and see it for what it truly is.
