**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE ****
So, I’m watching the Sarah Palin interview with Oprah, promoting Palin’s book, “Going Rogue: An American Life.” And just as I predicted last week, Oprah is handling her with kid gloves, greeting her with a warm embrace and giving her softball questions, which she’s hitting out of the park. It’s a win-win for both of them, as I also predicted last week.
It’s really much ado about nothing. No surprises here. And really no news. There’s nothing new here and no new information (other than quite a bit of whining). It’s just a carefully choreographed kabuki dance by two women who have everything to gain from this and are trying their darnedest not to screw it up. And they’re succeeding in spades.
A lot more books will be sold, and, unfortunately, a lot of conservative Palinistas will unduly fall for uber-liberal Oprah.
**** UPDATE: So the interview just ended, but before it ended Sarah Palin made a shameless suck up to uber-liberal Oprah, telling her how she was “inspired” by Oprah and “as a working mom” and by “all the obstacles you’ve overcome.” HUH?! Oprah’s a “working mom”? Really? What obstacles? Oprah’s been pandered to and spoiled all her life. Helloooo . . .? “You’re such an inspiration.” Disgusting. Yeah, that’s conservative. Uh-huh.
How very sad. Sarah Palin pulled a Bill O’Reilly with Oprah. So obvious. So fake. So stupid. Can’t say I’m surprised.
