Roseanne rips into Oprah & Obama
Got to say I didn't think I would agree with Roseanna Barr very often but wow she makes some points that I am *so* in synch with and I have to agree on her assessment of Oprah.
It's one of the more valid of the political party generalizations. Republicans tend to appeal more to the affluent because they (generally) protect the interests of corporate America and the wealthy. Democrats have the distinction of being more for the "average" person or "blue collar" worker. Accusing Oprah of voting with her pocketbook is not impossible to see. It's scary to think that she can (and does even if unconsciously) use the very considerable influence she has over many American fans by endorsing the candidate of her choice.
This presidential run looks to easily be a first for the history books. Potentially the first woman to run for the office of President (Ferraro was the VP candidate so not the same) or the first African American to be the candidate for one of the major 2 political parties (I am positive there have been 3rd party candidates in the past.. Jesse Jackson I think?)
I'm not trying to spout out my political views but I do think the point of an anti union candidate managing to get the endorsement of a union is worth considering. I mean seriously.. Yes Obama is a Democrat but to pick him over Edwards, someone who is pro union? What the heck?
And BTW I'm not for Edwards OR Obama. =)
At this point Obhama and Huckabee are the only ones that even peak my interest.
I like how no one even blinks at her calling McCain a facist .
Well, let's take into consideration WHO is criticizing. Roseanne. Roseanne Barr? I haven't watched it yet but who else could it be and...who the hell cares what she says?
I don't agree with her politics, but I do agree with her take on Oprah.
I don't think I've ever seen such a media whore as Oprah, nor anyone who is so impressed with their life, and the fact that they know a lot of celebrities, and parties with them all the time, or the fact that they just have to spout off about their wealth all the time, like she does. Sure she grew up poor, but okay...she did very well for herself...does she constantly need to rub everyone's face in the fact?
