On October 9, 2002, John McCain hosted Saturday Night Live, odd as that seems now. In a sketch, he croaked out the hits of Barbra Streisand. “I’ve been in politics for over 20 years,” he said. “And for over 20 years, I’ve had Barbra Streisand trying to do my job. So I decided to try my hand at her job.” Turns out he’s always been a kidder. Note prophetic mention of Alaska.
We’ve brought this clip to your attention because it bespeaks volumes about our upcoming art show at the World of Wonder Storefront Gallery. “Hollywood DC: Lights! Camera! Election!” is a group show exploring what happens when politics and celebrity collide. Show opens October 17.
