And now for something completely different

Women turn on ‘traitor’ Oprah Winfrey for backing Barack Obama

Hey, it's not my headline. It's from the TimesOnline in the UK.

You know you are in trouble when your own media won't tell you the truth about the behind the scenes of the Democrat hack & slash. If the Brits can smell blood in the water it's got to be knee deep at DNC headquarters.

AMERICA’S favourite television presenter is paying a painful price for her intervention in the US presidential campaign last month. Oprah Winfrey has been dubbed a “traitor” by some of her female fans for supporting Barack Obama instead of Hillary Clinton.

Winfrey’s website,, has been flooded with a barrage of abuse since the queen of daytime chat shows joined Obama on a tour of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina in mid-December.

Her intervention was widely credited with broadening Obama’s national appeal - especially among women - and with helping him to an upset victory over Clinton in the first vote of the election year in Iowa.

So there we have it. Women are turning on their over-paid piper. When she broke ranks to support a pseudo-black man based SOLELY upon the color of his skin over siding with a (biological) woman based SOLELY upon her gender the legions of Hillary's Harridans decided to swarm in defense of their Queen Bee.

They are making the PaulBots look like champions of reasoned discourse.

What's a media mogul to do? Her empire seems ready to desert!

Why, she can duck & cover and wait to emerge in whichever camp manages to float to the top of this toilet bowl.

Yet a backlash by Clinton supporters appears to have prompted a rethink by Winfrey, the African-American media titan who is routinely described as the most influential woman on television.

She did not reappear in the final days before the New Hampshire primary - which Obama lost to Clinton - and has been absent from the most recent campaigning in South Carolina, which votes next weekend.

Obama aides believe that Winfrey will return to the campaign. Her own staff noted last week that in addition to her daily broadcasts on television and satellite radio, she has also been busy negotiating a multi-million-dollar deal with the Discovery cable network to create her own television channel, the Oprah Winfrey Network.

Yet Obama’s rivals suspect that Winfrey has been startled by the virulent reaction to her previous campaign appearance.

It started with a message on her website entitled “Oprah is a traitor” and rapidly expanded to include several discussions that attracted hundreds of comments.

Well, gosh, Oprah, what did you expect?

Did you really think your advertisers were buying access to a BLACK audience? THINK AGAIN, BABY!

They wanted the purses of those white women who felt guilty enough to follow your commands slavishly. And I do mean slavishly.

Then you went and told them that they had to abandon Billy Jeff's wife to follow Dumbobama of the Big Ears and No Plan. Suddenly there's a revolt in the cabins surrounding the big house at the Winfrey plantation.

Your fellow's young. He will still have jug handles big enough to make Tony Blair look cute in 2012 or 2016. 2008 is really the Shrillary Shrew's last hurrah. By 2012 she's going to be less appealing than the Dr. Ruth Blow Up Sex Therapist.

Now it may be unfair of those women. After all, Hillary is biologically a woman and women are the truest majority in our nation. They have both the highest numbers and the highest number of eligible voters. She should be able to walk up and take the office. If only all those women would agree that Hill-D-Beast is actually someone they can trust.

Obama does represent a minority. White guys with black fathers. I don't know why Oprah would be attracted to him. I thought she went in for black guys, but hey, whatever floats her boat. Maybe if Dumbobama doesn't work out she could see what Whoopi saw in Tedd Danson.

Sometimes, even the great Oprah needs to keep her mouth shut.

Fits said...

Yep. First Halfrican American that came down the pike she dropped trow bigtime. A pal in Chitown says that rumor has it Obo promised Opa an ambassadorship.

I don't doubt that she's shopping for an ambassadorship to someplace in Africa.

If she were to take her vast fortune and actually go live in Africa I'd be happy to see her go.

I read today that Zimbabwe is now printing 10 million dollar bills because of the inflation there. A modest hamburger there will run 15 million, though.

Oprah could go there and get the UN backed dictator offed and become Queen Oprah.

Instead she's buying rape schools for little girls in South Africa while her Highness rests up in Al Capone's turf.

Robocop said...

She would do better building schools for our own disadvantaged people.

Hyunchback said...

But if she did that then those schools would probably be charter schools.

She'd have to become an advocate of school vouchers or she'd have to establish multiple funded scholarships to get disadvantaged kids into her school.

She could ALSO open up schools in Afghanistan and Iraq for girls to train them in math, literature, art, music, physics, chemistry, computers..

So many places she COULD have done good but she's hampered by the handcuffs of being a liberal.
