Alright, anyone hear about the whole Barbara Steisand thing? She had a "professional heckler" in the audience (are there such people -- someone PAYS them to heckle celebrities?) who heckled her when she was saying something negative about the Bush Administration. She then told them to shut the #%&* up.
Now, from the instant I saw Funny Girl I have always thought that Barbara Steisand was a classy lady. I don't agree with basically any of her views at this point, but still felt her to classy.
But to use that language, in front of people who came to see you, paying a LOT of money to see you, I think it's shameless. When she is paid to entertain. Do that, and only that.
When she goes on Tim Russert, she can act like a loon all she wants.
But, that's just me.
