Talk about awkward pairings!

President George W. Bush got face to face with noted lefty Barbara Streisand Sunday night, and the two swapped kisses in front of a crowd that included Bush's wife Laura.

Streisand, 66—long considered to be the ringleader of Hollywood's liberal cabal—was being feted for her contributions to American culture at the 31st Annual Kennedy Center Honors, held at Washington, D.C.'s John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

The honorees also included actor Morgan Freeman, along with Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend of the Who.

On hand to offer America's congratulations, the nation's 62-year-old Chief Executive fearlessly approached Streisand. Rather than pulling a Dick Cheney and shooting her in the face, Bush planted a smooch on her cheek—and Streisand responded in kind.

Check out the video below:

"Art transcends politics this weekend," Streisand noted afterward.

Babs nonetheless quibbled that it would have been "lovely" if she had been given the award by president-elect Barack Obama instead.

Despite their ideological differences, Streisand and Bush do have at least one bit of common ground: Streisand's stepson, Josh Brolin, portrayed the prez in this year's Oliver Stone biopic W.

So really, they're practically family.

Which kind of makes the whole kissing thing even creepier. Especially given how off-putting Streisand's family can be already.

    Speaking of George W. Bush: George W. Bush committed hate crimes of epic proportions and with the stench of terrorism (indicated in my blog). George W. Bush did in fact commit innumerable hate crimes. And I do solemnly swear by Almighty God that George W. Bush committed other hate crimes of epic proportions and with the stench of terrorism which I am not at liberty to mention. Many people know what Bush did. And many people will know what Bush did—even to the end of the world. Bush was absolute evil. Bush is now like a fugitive from justice. Bush is a psychological prisoner. Bush has a lot to worry about. Bush can technically be prosecuted for hate crimes at any time. In any case, Bush will go down in history in infamy.

BUSH IS THE WORST PRESIDENT IN U.S. HISTORY” BLOG OF ANDREW YU-JEN WANG ______________________ I am not sure where I had read it before, but anyway, it is a linguistically excellent statement, and it goes kind of like this: “If only it were possible to ban invention that bottled up memory so it never got stale and faded.” Oh wait—off the top of my head—I think the quotation came from my Lower Merion High School yearbook.

    Are you guys sure that's Barbra Streisand? I could swear that's Sammy Hagar in a dress.
