Not that you would, but if you were paying to attend an event that listed Barbra Streisand as a co-host, wouldn’t you sort of expect Streisand to be at that event — especially if it involved Barack Obama?

From Politico:

Barbra Streisand and Jeffrey Katzenberg were no-shows at a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee fundraiser the two were to co-host Monday night at the Los Angeles home of television producer John Wells.

President Obama spoke at the event, and other co-hosts included Steven Spielberg and J.J. Abrams.

Did Streisand just forget, or can we chalk her up as yet another disgruntled elitist limo-lib who was all for wildly expensive programs until realizing somebody has to pay for them?

Streisand’s website that often doubles as a comical cry for help provides no explanation. Maybe Barbra was stuck in yesterday’s nightmarish LA traffic jam, which, given the cause, would be sweet irony.

And for any Malibu dupes with more cash than brains who thought they were going to pay $30,400 a couple and actually get to have dinner with Obama, how’s this for a letdown:

According to one source familiar with the plans, about 100 people are expected at the reception and 100 at the dinner. But the source said Obama is not expected to attend the dinner itself, although Pelosi will be there.

Anybody who would pay thirty-grand to watch Nancy Pelosi eat can’t possibly have the ability to understand the size and scope of government waste — hence their misguided endorsements.
