Oprah blocks Palin


Several internet sites are reporting that Oprah is getting thousands of emails and requests to have Sarah Palin on her show. However, Oprah is battling a divided staff and refusing to allow the Alaskan governor on her show because of her highly partisan support for Democratic candidate Barack Obama.

“Half of her staff really wants Sarah Palin on,” an insider explains. “Oprah’s website is getting tons of requests to put her on, but Oprah and a couple of her top people are adamantly against it because of Obama.” It is not clear if Oprah has softened her position after watching Palin’s historic convention speech.

This is pretty amazing and typical of Oprah trying to wield her power. She will have transgender pregnant men on her show, freaks of every variety and walk of life, but is now refusing to interview the most popular woman in the world on her show. Well, it is her show, she can do as she please. However, she is letting her political bias get in the way of what would surely go down as one of the most popular episodes of the Oprah Winfrey Show in history.
Oprah is missing out on a very large opportunity to host Palin and continue to introduce her to the United States. It’s Oprah’s show and her right to not have Palin on her show.
T had dance last night so we TiVo'd McCain's speech so we could watch it as a family and help w/ her homework. She had to fill out the same worksheet she did for Obama's speech. I got really, really tired and went to bed early so I didn't see the entire speech. Chris said it was pretty good and McCain seemed to have more of a plan than Obama. Obama was all, "me, me, me, I, I, I" whereas McCain was more "for the country." I think Cindy McClain is a class act. Reminds me a lot of Laura Bush. Very gentle soul, no political aspirations of her own (I'm voting for the leader of the free world, not his wife and her damn healthcare plan!). They've raised their children well. Yes, she's loaded and they own a couple of houses. It doesn't offend me. More power to them. As long as her family made their money thru honest, hard work -- the American way, the American dream.

Preach it baby! I quit watching Oprah after her shows became political rallys! Even if she is a Mississippi girl!
