I must admit that I have been a bit lazy when it comes to goofing on Oprah Winfrey. I think it might be a good idea to simply make an Oprah category here on brokencountry and dedicate it to simply ripping Ms. Winfrey a new backside once in a while.
I think from the start of the Obama campaign, Oprah made it quite clear that she is a bigot. I watched a few of her shows during the campaign and watched some youtube clips of her endorsement of then candidate Barack Obama. During the entire campaign all she said about Obama was that he was “inspiring.” I also saw some interviews by actual reporters that asked Oprah why she supported Barack Obama and she never once said anything other than “because he is so inspirational.”
What the media elite were getting at is what is plain and obvious to the rest of America. They wanted to hear Oprah say that she supports Obama because he is black. This really is the only reason that Oprah supported President Obama and donated 2.5 million dollars (a pittance when you are worth 2.5 billion) to the Obama for Presidential campaign.
The best thing about Oprah is that she’s an idiot. So are all the Oprahtrons that watch that mindless drivel she calls a show. She took Phil Donahue’s format and is laughing all the way to the bank. She is worth 2.5 billion dollars and trust me when I say this. She is doing everything she can to avoid paying taxes. I would bet my left nut that if you were to dig deep into the 1000 page plus Obama stimulus plan you would find a section that provides 100 million dollars to build Oprah her own wing at the white house.
The upside of the whole Oprah phenomenon is that like the rest of these dopey talk show hosts, she too will eventually become irrelevant. In fact if you look at her ratings she is already on the verge of being irrelevant. Her support of Barack Obama for what were clearly bigoted reasons has cost her in the form of ratings. What used to be 15 million viewers is now down to less than 8 million viewers. I figure another three years and we will all be asking Oprah who? JD
