Oprah won’t interview Sarah Palin until after the election

September 5th, 2008 // 174 Comments

The Sarah Palin News Vortex has bagged another celebrity. And this time it’s a biggun’. Oprah Winfrey was ensnared in controversy this morning when the Drudge Report posted that the Big O, a vocal supporter of Barack Obama, is refusing to have Governor Palin on her show. Oprah fired off a statement to TMZ this afternoon denying the claims:

“The item in today’s Drudge Report is categorically untrue. There has been absolutely no discussion about having Sarah Palin on my show. At the beginning of this Presidential campaign when I decided that I was going to take my first public stance in support of a candidate, I made the decision not to use my show as a platform for any of the candidates. I agree that Sarah Palin would be a fantastic interview, and I would love to have her on after the campaign is over.”

Behind closed doors, Oprah then demanded the head of Matt Drudge on a silver platter before the sun sets. And maybe some onion rings.

    I think Oprah should keep it real and get rid of the wigs. If negroes are so proud they should stop buying human looking hair and show that nasty pubic hair on their heads.

    To Bemused: Good one!

    Why in the world would an intelligent, independent person like Sarah Palin want to be on Oprah Winfrey’s show. Winfrey’s show is losing viewers like there is no tomorrow and has been for the past 6 months or more. Also, Palin isn’t going to go on there and pander to the likes of that bloated, self-indulgent, hypocrital gas bag. Oprah got rich by portraying herself as a non-racist. Now, as an extremely rich b it ch, she shows what a racist she is. I hope Palin doesn’t go on O’s kiss-up to the host show. Why should she? Oprah and Obama are yesterday’s news. Miss Oprah got too big for her britches in more ways than one ——– again.

    How is anyone surprised by Oprah’s hatefulness anymore? This is the overpaid woman who shook her fist in victory —on the air duirng her show—when OJ Simpson was declared not guilty. Her big mouth then proclaimed him ‘innocent”.

    Oprah has along history of condescending to women. This glorification by her audience is nothing more than brainwashing.

    Palin should never go on this hater’s show.

    Sara Palin: I am impressed that you put your state surplus back into the pockets of Alaskan citizens. I am even more impressed that you helped create that surplus. You’ve had the media attack some tumultuous family issues that you are going through. No one has a “normal” family; this is real life and private family matters. If you can help the US budget, the way you helped Alaska, I’d love to see our National economy bounce back. I don’t care if you have to fire some people to get it down.

    Joe Biden: Who are you? Your speech was terrible. I don’t think I can identify with you any more than I can identify with the teacher in Ferris Bueler’s day off. Need to read more about this one before voting. Thank God this is one political candidate that Oprah won’t host.

    Senator McCain: I haven’t decided about you yet. I appreciate your contribution as a POW, but I don’t think that necessarily makes you a candidate. I thought you were very like- able in your speech- but was not even a luke-warm fan prior to seeing that. I think you have the greatest chance of helping the economy.

    Senator Obama: God you are a great speaker. You have a great voice that makes you someone that I just want to listen to. I voted for you as senator in Illinois. I’m not sure that I am ready to give you my vote for President, though. You have served only 3 1/2 years and started your campaigning 19 months ago. When did you find time to help and visit your constituents in Illinois while you were so busy campaigning?

    To the writers on this board who wrote hateful, racist comments: you are not worth the comment.

  8. jim

    Oprah’s a racist, pure and simple.

  9. Jeremy

    106..you are the poster child for Obama voters. I read your comments and it is even more evident that we cannot elect this guy. How did you even turn your computer on without help?

  10. NOBAMA

    “At the beginning of this Presidential campaign when I decided that I was going to take my first public stance in support of a candidate, I made the decision not to use my show as a platform for any of the candidates.”

    Then why did she have the marxist Obama on her show?!?! Biased journalism is ruining this country and needs to be called out for what it is!

    Oprah is a fat, racist, self loving pig of a CUNT.
    I hope she gets ovarian or cervical cancer and dies a painful death.
    Fuck that black smelly pig shit.

  13. devilsrain

    If Palin wins, (i mean when she wins the VP) and Oprah wants an interview, I hope she tells that fat black cow to go fuck off.

  14. oprahsucks

    Oprah had Osama on for his books. He was writing books (and voting PRESENT) when he should have been writing laws.

    The only reason this guy is a candidate is because he’s black.

    Oprah is a terrible racist that’s terrified of Palin.

    106 – I’m so sorry for you.

  15. Oprah is a hypocritical cunt

    Who gives a shit what she thinks? the idiot that brought us Dr. Phil thinks her opinion matters. She’s a hypocritical, narcissistic, racist twat. Let’s vote for Obama- no experience, no tough choices, just a fashionable Hollywood creation. No thanks.

    Drudge would look great on a platter. When are you REDnecks going to secede? Your brains are obviously of no use. Keep drinking the kool-aid cavemen!

  18. karl rove

    Anybody not think racism is rampant. Just look at how many morons there are on this page. Thanks for making the planet a better place for your stupid kids. mOst of you probably call yourselves christians. Wouldn’t want to go to that heaven. Its probably located somewhere the sun don’t shine. Up your A#&

  19. janenls

    Bottom line people. It’s her show. If gasoline prices go up to $6:00 a gallon next year, will you care that Palin was not on Oprah’s show? When the cause of your best friends death is a lack of insurance,will knowing you called Oprah a vulgar name make it hurt less? When family and friends are sleeping in dirty blankets on the sidewalk because they loss their home,Will you blame Oprah for that. The cost of living is going up. With 2.3 billion dollars Oprah will do very well, What about you. What are your plans for the storm if it come’s? I didn’t know people could be so easily led astray. What about the issues? The reason we vote in the first place. I don’t watch her show ,don’t like it, but it is H E R ‘ S.

  20. holy shit

    damn, there are some serious trolls on here.

  21. OPRAH IS SCARED ……R A C I S T ! ….NO MORE OPRAH FOR ME !

  22. hi

    Oprah is a far left commy racist bitch.

  23. Sarah Palin

    It’s all ok. I’m hot. And she’s not.

    And Oprah will always be a FAT ASS until the day she dies.

    No matter how many diets she goes on.

    Oprah has always been uppity.

  26. hillary

    Oprah is a nigger. Nothing else matters.

  27. John Q. Public

    I feel so bad for Sarah Palin. She doesn’t deserve to be shut out from the exposure Oprah’s show would give her. Especially since she’s such a straight talker. For example:

    She rejected Sen. Ted Stevens’ “Bridge to Nowhere” pork barrel project for Alaska. Except…that was only after it died in Congress. But not before – in fact, earlier in her career she directed his independent unregulated reelection group (527 group). And she still hasn’t said whether she’ll personally vote for his reelection or not. He’s under federal indictment.

    She rejects federal earmark funds as wasteful spending. Except…as mayor of Wasilla, she hired lobbyists to fight for earmark funds for her town, and succeeded wildly – Wasilla residents received 20 times the per-capita earmarked funds of residents of other states.

    As John McCain pointed out, Palin has national security as one of her primary responsibilities as governor of Alaska, since she commands the Alaska National Guard. Except…she’s issued ZERO commands to the Alaska National Guard thus far.

    She’s definitely an ethics reformer. Except…there’s an ongoing BIPARTISAN investigation into her own ethics as governor, involving questionable firings similar to those that occurred when she was mayor of Wasilla.

    At this point, I sort of hope that she really has shot a moose at some point in her life.

    But I doubt it.

  28. Otaktay

    I think Obama and Biden should be on tv more, Sarah is on the news because her daughter is a crackwhore, her husband has no balls and she is a f’n piece of white trash, I myself am of a mixed race, but I have to say Palin and McCain are retarded idiots, they shouldnt be running for president mccain should be in a nursing home because hes missin a few screws and his running mate should do what she does best, thats working the streets, right now her daughter is makin more business then she is, I swear if they get in this office, I wouldnt be too suprised because of ppl voting bush in, who is a monkey, and I would be the first person to take a shit on McCain and Palin’s presidential picture, and laughing at the idiots who voted mccain and palin in while America goes to hell quicker then when bush was in office.

    Personal note, Oprah is a stuck up bitch, But Palin and McCain are deuche bags.

  29. Ideaman

    I do think racism is rappant and it turns up in weird places. It is too bad that Oprah could not be a better role model. She is for Oprah and Oprah’s issues all of the time. This extreme bias and self centeredness is at the core of the problem.

    I’m another former fan of two decades who has turned her off for good.

    She’s not a journalist nor a good talk show host. Both would want to interview Palin to get the high ratings. Is she mentally challenged or biased? Both? You pick?

    Oprah can’t have what Palin has in a million years: Family, good looks, respect of friends, community and loved ones, children, great intelligence, skills… Is she jealous, frightened or biased? All three? You pick.

    She tried to trick her viewing audience by putting Obama on the show early before he was techinically running for office. Then, once the election started, she said that no one in the race could be on the show. This way she closed out Hillary Clinton and anyone from the Republican Party. However, she really isn’t fooling anyone but herself. Is she arrogant, meanspirited or a racist? You pick.

    Money is important and we all need to do our best. But at what expense? My guess is that Oprah is one miserable human being who is constantly watching her back. I honestly hopes she retires, gets some therapy and gives back to her community here in this country.

    Oprah’s ratings are falling:
    In January: 7,594
    In August: 5,233

    Here are some names of sponsors:
    Pella, Philosophy, Allstate, GM, Disney/Universal, HBO and Target. I’m sure it wouldn’t be too hard to find more.

    Turn the TV OFF! Turn her off and tune her out. Spend some of your former Oprah time writing some of the sponsors mentioned above or any others you hear about.

    Then spend it toward self improvement or helping your kids, family or community. If you would like, take a college course or get in some exercise.

    Be as productive as possible.
    You will be much happier, healthier and thinner spending your time doing something else. The Key Word: Productivity.

    p.s. I bet these are things that you never heard to do on Oprah. Spend the hour doing and achieving. I promise you…you will be much happier.

  30. Who Gives A Fu_k

    U racist on here are a joke, you racist would rather put an old decaying no teeth monster face a ss dude who cant even wipe his own anus without help from his superficial no anus having wife whois a former drug addict who was an adultress with this unfaithful senator who left his first wife who was a model before he went to vietnam but suffered in an accident then this dude left her for his current junkie, what a presidential candidate.

    But you racist fear not only Oprah but Obama as well who have ascertained success through hard work and not given daddys fortune but they worked hard for everything they have. They were not given anything. Many blacks have died and fought in many wars but does that make them presidential material. Of course not.

    You racist can continue to hide behind the internet because this is ur only voice noone will ever listen to ur hateful azzez in person.

    Hide and type thats all you can do, u cowards. I cant believe how far we come and so far we have to go in 2008.

  31. Sue

    That’s okay. I have a choice. I just won’t watch Oprah anymore. If she can shove her opinions down our throats, then we have the choice not to watch her anymore. I was a fan. Now I’m not.

  32. jehovah

    The KKK needs to rise up and cleanse America!

  33. “And maybe some onion rings.” Bwah!

    Oprah is a total hypocrite. The sooner her sheep realize that, the better.

  34. shar

    #133 you are absolutely correct. Unfortunately Obama or McCain are not
    great leaders. McCain too old, Obama not experienced, Sarah has more
    balls then both men put together, unfortunately again not experienced.
    Oprah, well I personally do not watch the show, but obviously someone does or she would not be on idiot box. (my version of TV).

  35. sadsadsad

    WHO NEEDS THAT FAT WATER BUFFALO OPRAH ANYWAY! SARAH DOESN’T NEED HER SHOW TO PROMOTE HERSELF. SHE’S BETTER THEN THAT! THE ONLY REASON OBAMA HAS TO BE ON THE SHOW IS BECAUSE HE NEEDS HER STUPID ASS SHOW TO MAKE HIMSELF LOOK LIKE ALL THE OTHER CELEBRITIES!

    #11 GOT IT RIGHT ON! YOU ARE SO RIGHT!!!!

    KISS MY ASS WATER BUFFAL-OPRAH!!!! FROM A COOL ASS CONSERVATIVE!!!!

  39. Goatse von Tubgirl

    Why is anyone surprised?

  40. Wanna Be Obama HNIC

    McCain Leaps Ahead in Poll

    Latest USA Today-Gallup Poll shows the Republican ticket ahead 4 points, wiping out Obama’s earlier advantage.

    Get used to it.

    Who needs Orkas fat ass for victory anyways?

  41. Palin Comparison

    Can you imagine what kind of joke interview Palin would be on Oprah? Seriously. She doesn’t know much about anything. Maybe they could talk about fashion or something.

  42. Jack Sparrow

    @ 143

    You are correct, Oprah can gossip but knows nothing about anything. Seriously.
    Oprahs fashion since is horrible, maybe they could go to KFC and load up….

  43. The Truth

    Two words: Arsenio Hall

    I know that many of you are to old to remember his late night talk show. When he first started the show was great! I even went and sat in the studio audinece once. As he got more and more successful, he went to the left and very black. The show ended up failing. I saw him on stage several years later and he joked that he lost his show because he “got too black”

    Oprah might be heading down the same path! Too liberal.

    Yes, it is her show and she can do what she wants, but this may have been a critical error in judgement! Besides, the ratings for that day would have probably been HUGE…but that would have probably hurt her boy…the lord and savior Obama!

  44. FCS

    Sarah Palin thinks the invasion of Iraq was “gods work”

    So presumably all those guys missing limbs, eyes etc in the VA hospitals must have pissed off god in some way.

    What a stunned cunt that woman is. I hope she has a stroke and dies. Right after MCCain, who’s about due one anyday now..

  45. Grunion

    So dropping bombs on people from 10 000 feet makes you a war hero now? At least John Kerry saw the enemy. I’m glad the NVA tortured McCains ass, I would have too, it’s called reaping what you sew.

    Wanna good laugh? Ask McCain for a high five….

  46. L.B.

    I AM BLACK AND I WOULDN’T BE ON OPRAH SHOW IF SHE INVITED ME. SHE IS SUCH A HYPOCRITE. FAKE! I HOPE OBAMA LOST. I AM BLACK BUT I AM NOT VOTING FOR OBAMA!!! HE SUCKS!!! I AM BLACK BUT A DECENT ONE.
