Oprah Winfrey, whose successful but vapid talk show has afforded her guru status on everything from personal advice, relationships, and book recommendations, insults Sarah Palin for essentially attempting the same thing, only in reverse.
Oprah Winfrey says America may “fall in love” with Sarah Palin as a TV star, but is dismissing the idea that the country would vote for the former Alaska governor in the future.
Asked in an interview with Parade magazine if the thought of Palin’s running for office scares her, Winfrey responded, “It does not scare me because I believe in the intelligence of the American public.”
Stop laughing everyone, I think she was serious.
Me too Oprah, if by “intelligence” you mean figuring out how to vote for opportunistic charlatans that give them something for nothing, vilifying the “haves” and victimizing the “have nots”. This coming from a woman who gives away cars on her show to a frothing herd of rabid groupies.
It’s difficult to imagine what could possibly “scare” anyone now as it relates to Presidential candidates as Her Candidate has certainly raised the bar on how much destruction one president can wage while simultaneously lowering it as it regards approval ratings.
If its okay with you, I’ll go with the fit, happily married, heavily armed hot chick over, well, Oprah, any day, thank you very much.
