STREISAND CALLS SADDAM 'IRANIAN'
It's been weeks of calm seas off PCH on the Barbra Streisand front, but the singeractressdirectoractivist has now issued a fresh "truth alert" to the world -- a truth alert calling Saddam Hussein Iranian!
In an alert posted as 'REPUBLICAN CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE ATTACKS BARBRA STREISAND
IN ADS IN DESPERATE EFFORT TO CUT INTO CAROLYN McCARTHY LEAD,' Streisand takes issue with an ad run by congressional candidate Marilyn O'Grady in her run against Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY):
"A Republican/Conservative candidate trying with fading hopes to unseat respected Democratic Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy made a last-ditch effort to win headlines by devising ads in which she blatantly misquoted Barbra Streisand, fabricating outrageous quotes and completely misrepresenting Ms. Streisand's deep opposition to the Iranian dictator, Saddam Hussein..."
Where Iraq becomes Iran: Geography, not cinematography, is the latest Streisand glitch.
September: Streisand hit controversy when she faxed a spelling error-ridden memo to Rep. Dick Gephardt (D-MO) asking him to resist Bush's Iraq moves.
October: DRUDGE revelations that Streisand fell for an Internet hoax when she falsely attributed a quote to Shakespeare in an attempt to castigate Bush at a star-studded Democratic fundraising event in Hollywood.
Later it was learned that she had bought and traded 800 shares of HALLIBURTON -- while Dick Cheney was its chief executive.
