As Barbra Streisand defended the Affordable Care Act (better known and more accurately called Obamacare), the celebrated chanteusse used a rhetorical flourish comparing President Obama to a Greek tragedy fit for Mount Olympus.
One can see why Hollywood Celebutards who are already inveterate knee-jerk liberals might mistake Barack Obama as a deity. Consider his elevated, self-congratulatory rhetoric after winning the New Hampshire primary in January, 2008.
Sadly, the world that "the Chosen One" lead us to was not Arcadia but more of a political Potemkin village. But stars do not mind a flimsy fantasy set where they can act and then retreat to a celebrity cocoon and let the little people deal with the rest of the mess. Maybe even catch another round of golf.
