Today’s second quote of the day (a rarity, but I couldn’t resist) comes to us from Barbra Streisand – one of the many celebrities who think anybody but themselves cares about their political opinions.

Here is Ms. Streisand’s sad lament about what she will do if Republicans manage to retain control of the House of Representatives next week:

“Don’t know.  I’ve been thinking about, do I want to move to Canada? I don’t know. I’m just so saddened by this thing happening to our country. It’s making me fat. I hear what he said now, and I have to go eat pancakes now, and pancakes are very fattening. We make them with healthy flour, though — almond flour, coconut flour.”

Omigod!  If Democrats don’t win control of the house, Barbra Streisand will eat a lot of pancakes and get fat!

What a nightmare this will be for the world!!!  But, hey, at least we can derive some consolation in the fact that she will do it with healthy flour.

Can this hopelessly self-impressed diva possibly believe anyone gives a damn about how many pancakes she eats or why she eats them?  Can she possibly believe anyone but herself cares about which party she’d like to be in power?

I award Barbra Streisand Quote Of The Day “honors”, for demonstrating the far reaches of how self-involved and obtuse an entertainment personality can be.

Oh, and by the way Ms Streisand, we’re not impressed with your threatened possible move to Canada. Haven’t we heard that before?  Along with the “If I don’t get my way politically, I’ll eat pancakes and get fat” comment?

Donald Trump is making me gain weight. I start the day with liquids, but after the morning news, I eat pancakes smothered in maple syrup!


Yeesh.  Enough already.  Any more of this and Betty Crocker, Aunt Jemima and the Pillsbury Doughboy are going to picket your mansion.


  • A team in a local women’s softball league had the nickname The Sagging Knockers. I don’t know what made me think of that.

    • If their husbands’ softball team was the Broken Bats, I’d say the marriages were in trouble.
