Wow. McCain can't really sing Streisand -- but big credit for trying.

I know that John and Cindy McCain love ABBA -- so Pierce Brosnan, watch out!

For a longer clip of his sizzle-free performance, go here.

But note to Obama campaign and Steven Spielberg (who I would occasionally run into 20 years ago at his mom's kosher restaurant, The Milky Way) or David Geffen (. . .will he remember?), I would really love to be the guest blogger when Streisand sings for Obama.

Not much of a chance of it -- but had to put it out there.
