Oprah cold-shoulders 'Obama 2012'
Wow.... Have the scales fallen from Oprah's eyes? Pop Eater is reporting that the famously rotund Obamabot will not be supporting him in 2012, as he bids to complete the "transformation" of America. The Oprah Winfrey Network, a joint venture with Discovery Communications, is rating worse than the channel it replaced, and according to the source:
For 2012, much has changed for Oprah. She now has her own cable channel that has been struggling to find an audience.... She isn't going to do anything to alienate them. She is fighting everyday to get people to tune in.
Interesting. I posted this on Facebook and received a comment which perhaps explains her fears. Paraphrasing Carole Logan:
Honestly, she is the biggest sanctimonious, guilt-ridden, elitist snob ever to epitomize liberalism. She has enormous success due to her vapid existence on daytime television stroking the emotions of scores of pathetic women who would do better reading than watching chit-chat about the most inane tripe culture can produce. Oprah-just be thankful you pull down more than the GNP of small nations, and go away! Every time I see her doe-eyed, rapt, child-like attention on the latest trend of spiritual nonsense which she pedantically dissects as some form of "enlightenment," I desperately want to skewer my eyes like olives and guzzle them down with gin.
Carole informs me that she does not need anger management. For her and many others, however, Oprah's sanction of The One We've Been Waiting For was the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back.
