Streisand Slams Mccain's Choice Of Running Mate

BARBRA STREISAND is the latest celebrity to slam U.S. presidential candidate JOHN MCCAIN's decision to appoint SARAH PALIN as his running mate.
The legendary singer/actress, a staunch Democrat, is furious with Republican presidential candidate MCCain for choosing a woman as his running mate in the build up to the November (08) elections.
Streisand has voiced her belief that he picked Palin simply to grab the voters who supported Hillary Clinton, who was the first women in history with her sights set on the White House.
In her blog, entitled "MCCain doesn't get it: Women are not that stupid", Streisand writes, "(It) sent a very clear message to America about how he views female voters.
"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."
Earlier this week (beg01sep08) rapper Sean 'Diddy' Combs lashed out at MCCain, calling his decision to appoint the Alaska Governor "irresponsible".
