While Democrat Girl was earning trillions of bucks in Las Vegas New Yearâ€™s Eve. the fabulous and incomparable Bette Midler was performing in San Francisco (an interesting but vastly overrated and very expensive citv in California).
The point is: 500 of the Midler-concert tickets were sold for $500 each with proceeds from those earmarked for the San Francisco AIDS Foundation. The show raised $250.000. according to the foundation. Midler said she was pleased to raise money for an organization fighting AIDS–
â€œNew Year’s Eve was one of the best nights of my life ”
Now there is even more reason to adore her.
And speaking of Democrat Girl: It was very nice of her to fly to Arkansas to attend the funeral of President Clintonâ€™s mother, but fashionable as Babs is, couldnâ€™t she have given poor Roger Clinton fashion advice? (We suppose you saw that photo that showed him wearing a red uindbreaker and a gaudy tie to his motherâ€™s funeral.)
Further on the divine Streisand: This is not to say she hasnâ€™t done her share of fund raising for AIDS foundations and research. She has â€” and so have the divine Elizabeth Taylor and the semi-divine Madonna.
