Don’t look for Sarah Palin or, for that matter, any Presidential candidate on the Oprah couch. Oprah came out and said she wasn’t going to use her show as a platform.
However; the Florida Federation of Republican Women doesn’t like that idea. They think that Oprah should interview Palin and they’re doing something about it. They’re calling for boycotts for Oprah’s show and Oprah’s magazine.
What they’re really doing is creating a mountain out of a molehill. They’re creating a smoke screen that makes it look like the media isn’t helping out Palin. They know they can’t win the election on issues, so they make this an Oprah vs Palin debate, which will distract women for at least a couple of days.
Don’t fall for it. Oprah said she isn’t going to use her show and she isn’t. I applaud her for leaving her show out of it.
Besides, what do the FFRW think they’ll gain if Oprah did interview Palin? When Oprah took the gloves off and asked the really hard questions, how will they complain the media is sexist and picking on her?
Below is the video from CNN.
PS. To sbaldwinus at YouTube, this is an example of the media playing nice with Palin. This wouldn’t be worth mentioning if the battle was McCain vs Oprah or Oprah vs Anyone else on the planet. And, what happens when the media reports on this? The headline on CNN is “Oprah boycotted for Palin interview snub”, but if you watch the video, you find it isn’t a snub. But, a lot of people will just read the headline and move on.
