Sorry Sarah I got to help Barack get elected, says Oprah.

Ok so maybe those weren't her exact words, but that's the message.

OPRAH'S STATEMENT: "The item in today's Drudge Report is categorically untrue. There has been absolutely no discussion about having Sarah Palin on my show. At the beginning of this Presidential campaign when I decided that I was going to take my first public stance in support of a candidate, I made the decision not to use my show as a platform for any of the candidates. I agree that Sarah Palin would be a fantastic interview, and I would love to have her on after the campaign is over." In other words after it can't possibly help her get elected has the first woman Vice-President and defeat my man Obama she can come on. "For the record, Barack Obama has been on "Oprah" twice -- in January, 2005 and again in October, 2006 -- before he announced his run for Prez."

As she was leaving the DNC last week she commented to a reporter that she "cried her eyelashes off," during Obama's speech. "I think it's the most powerful thing I have ever experienced." She also said of Obama, "He's not an African-American candidate," she said. "He's a candidate for Americans." There is no doubt that Oprah supports Obama, she does so openly. However to deny a woman who has worked her way from the PTA to Governor a chance to have a forum on her show is not only bias, but extremly bad business.

Oprah apparently feels it is more important to get Obama elected President than to give her viewers a chance to meet the women who may be that first female to hold executive office in this country's history. I hope if John McCain and Sarah Palin are elected to office that Palin refuses to appear on Oprah when asked. I believe this is a decision Oprah will eventually reget, probably once her ratings drop and they cancel her show.

    I bet she will alienate some women fans of hers. They will be even more open to checking out Palin. Oprah doesn't want Palin on her show because she is afraid Palin might sway some of her viewers away from Obama.

    Oprah is afraid of hurting Obama's chances, she knows he has a tough fight with Palin on the ticket.

    never elect a woman

    who's a conservative
    she's just a gender traitor
