Apparently Barbra Steisand is upset that a memo she sent to Tom Daschle and Dick Gephardt got garbled in transmission and was taken advantage of by evil Republicans. Note again that, as with the Harkin campaign, when Democrats “make mistakes”, some hapless intern gets the blame.
May I ask why—given its supposed importance to her— Streisand couldn’t take the time out of rehearsals for her performance to actually sit down and carefully write the memo, and not simply dish the thing out over the phone? Maybe it’s not really that important. Maybe, as is often the case with airhead showbiz liberals, it’s really just another opportunity for publicity.
