Streisand Sings Praises of Clinton's Global Initiative

Thursday, 06 October 2005 12:00 AM

The news of late is confirming my theory and converting "Hollywood Nation" into a tagline.

Just look. We have the U.S. Supreme Court accepting the appeal of ex-stripper Anna Nicole Smith.

We have celebrities Rob Reiner, Warren Beatty and Ben Affleck being touted as candidates for governor, governor and senator.

And we have Barbra Streisand moonlighting as a climate scientist.

Babs recently attended Bill Clinton's globalists convention and was really impressed with a speech given by Al Gore.

Streisand called Gore's talk "the highlight" of the event.

At "Al Gore's compelling luncheon panel discussion on global warming," Streisand gushed, "he passionately stressed that our world no longer has a climate problem, we are in a climate emergency."

Climate emergency? I've heard that phrase before.

Just a short while ago Streisand informed ABC's Diane Sawyer that we were "in a global warming emergency state."

Recently Streisand recorded a song with anti-Iraq war lyrics ("Stranger in a Strange Land"). She also is in the habit of bashing Bush on her Web site.

The Funny Girl is apparently still gaga over another member of the Oval Office club, though.

"Of course, as expected, our 42nd President, Bill Clinton, was brilliant," Streisand wrote on her site. "His intellect and command of the issues set forth at both a macro and micro level was astonishing."

Streisand praised Clinton's "ability to probe the various conversations and come up with viable solutions," calling his maneuverings a "testament to his problem-solving skills."

The Left Coast Report would advise caution when using "Clinton" and "ability to probe" in the same sentence.

Catherine Zeta-Jones and Antonio Banderas were overseas promoting their new film, "The Legend of Zorro."

They took the opportunity to share their anti-Bush feelings with the press and the world.

Banderas said that the Bush administration had done its job very poorly.

He claimed that the price for Bush's policies would be enormous for the world.

Zeta-Jones said that the world desperately needs morally courageous people who stand up for others, just like the action heroes in their new film.

The Left Coast Report says leave it to an experienced cell phone pitcher to steer the political talk back to movie-selling.

Promoting ABC's left-of-center fantasy, "Commander in Chief", Geena Davis' co-star Donald Sutherland recently melted down while cautioning the world that President Bush "will destroy our lives!"

While abroad Sutherland spoke of the Bush administration's handling of the war and Hurricane Katrina.

"They were inept. They were inadequate to the task, and they lied," Sutherland sniveled.

"And they were insulting, and they were vindictive. And they were heartless. They did not care. They do not care. They do not care about Iraqi people. They do not care about the families of dead soldiers. They only care about profit," Sutherland added.

Sutherland broke down and cried, whimpering through his sniffles, "We've stolen our children's future ... We have children. We have children. How dare we take their legacy from them. How dare we. It's shameful. What we are doing to our world."

The Left Coast Report would offer Sutherland a hankie but fears he'd use it the way the French do.

The Old Media have put on their bias blinders and are ignoring a series of stories that relate to the recent indictment of former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay.

Especially striking is the way the media are overlooking the fact that prosecutor Ronnie Earle has, for the last two years, invited a film crew to tag along with him and shoot footage of the criminal investigation and ultimate indictment of DeLay.

Mark Birnbaum, a self-described producer, director, writer, cameraman and editor, has been wearing the Michael Moore cap. Astoundingly, the Peabody Award winner's Web site says that the "new documentary work-in-progress was screened as the closing feature at this year's Dallas Video Festival."

The DeLay piece even has a title. It's called "The Big Buy" and is described as "Raymond Chandler meets Willie Nelson on the corner of Wall Street and Pennsylvania Avenue."

The film's plot, according to Birnbaum, involves "maverick Austin D.A. Ronnie Earle's investigation into what really happened when corporate money joined forces with relentless political ambitions to help swing the pivotal 2002 Texas elections, cementing Republican control from Austin to Washington D.C."

Birnbaum told National Review Online, "We approached him [Earle], and he offered us extraordinary access to him and, to an extent, his staff."

The Left Coast Report wonders what the press would have done if Ken Starr would have allowed a film crew to follow him around as he investigated the 42nd president of the United States and kind of wishes he had. "Bubba's Excellent Adventure" would have made one heck of an exposé.
