The Drudge Report, Newsday, ABC News, and even NRO have stories about Oprah’s alleged refusal to have Governor Palin, aka Caribou Barbie, aka Sarahcuda, on her show. Is Oprah biased? (Duh, she campaigned for Obama.) Is she being unfair? Whatever will we do? Am I, average American Jane, going to be plummeted into the depths of despair because Oprah has refused to have Governor Palin, aka Caribou Barbie, aka Sarahcuda, on her show? Oh noes! How will I know what to think unless the great Oprah tells me!!!!!!???????? Will this end in anarchy? Will cats and dogs live together?
A much more important question would be this: Do I really give a flying rat’s butt in hell what Oprah does on her show? No. I. Don’t. Care. Am I at all influenced by what Oprah does or does not do, by what she recommends, what she thinks? No. To be honest, I think very lowly of those who allow themselves to be influenced by Oprah or, for that matter, any other entertainer. Why should I care what some millionare who hasn’t met the real “Oh dear God! How will I pay the bills and feed the kids?” world in decades thinks?
NEXT! Pass the beer nuts.
