Some right-wingers are complaining that Oprah won’t have Sarah Palin on her show.  Like, that Oprah, what a hypocrite, claims to champion women but won’t interview the first female on a Republican presidential ticket.  Quelle horreur! Oprah, your bias is showing.

My thoughts?  Two words:

1.  Um…

2.  …so?

And if that isn’t clear enough for you, here are two questions:

1.  Since when is anyone entitled to be a guest on Oprah?

2.  Are we not talking about…Oprah?

Seriously, it’s not like Meet the Press is refusing to interview Sarah Palin.  It’s…Oprah.


Far as I know, it’s a free country, and talk show hosts can still pick their own guests.  Or did Congress re-enact the Fairness Doctrine and forget to tell Oprah?

Oprah herself has said she’d be happy to interview Sarah Palin after the general election.  Could be, Oprah’s a little swamped right now, what with her TV show and her magazine and her charity work and her book club.  Maybe she’d like to spend a little more time stumping for Obama, as is her right.  Maybe she’d like to go shopping with her best friend, Gayle.  Maybe she wants to accuse some more French retailers of racism.  Maybe she’d like to give away some cars.  Is Stedman still in the picture?  Maybe she wants to go on another diet.  My point being, if Oprah wants to wait until after the general election to interview Sarah Palin, or perhaps not interview her at all, SO WHAT?

I don’t care if she has Obama and/or Biden and/or their wives and/or their personal stylists on every day from now until November.  IT’S THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW.  If American women are unduly influenced by her and her choice of guests, that is neither illegal nor unethical nor unjust.  IT’S OPRAH, FOR THE LOVE OF MIKE!

That’s all I have to say about that.

In other news, Princess Zurg’s favorite new cereal is Kellogg’s Frosted Mini-Wheats Blueberry Muffin.  Is it just me, or do these little squares look like moldy shredded wheat?

I’m not saying it’s bad cereal.  I’m just saying it doesn’t look right.
