Flashback Video: My VideoBlog About Oprah & Obama

By Debbie Schlussel
With all of the hoopla about Oprah’s forays–this weekend–into Iowa, South Carolina, New Hamsphire, etc., on behalf of Barack Hussein Obama, I remind you of my views on Oprah’s “in-kind” campaign contribution to his campaign, from late October. Also, I now ask (as forecasted in this video), why Oprah gets away with switching to a strong and very fake “urban” accent when she’s speaking to Blacks in South Carolina (and “suburban” accent when she’s rallying Whites in Iowa). (Remember, I did this without a teleprompter and thinking the strong lights would drown me out, thus the way-too-excessive makeup).

Debbie,
When will we see new videos? Did you decide to stop doing them?

So because lots of people care what Oprah thinks, the government needs to step in? I’m surprised to hear you taking such a nanny state position on election law.
Don’t worry: military contractors, tobacco companies, oil companies, pharmaceutical companies, hollywood, and the gun lobby also unfairly influence elections. If elections were fair, they’d have been outlawed long ago.
[MUO: YOU CLEARLY DIDN'T LISTEN TO WHAT I SAID. I SAID I'M AGAINST NANNY-STATE LIMITS. BUT IF THERE ARE LIMITS ON US, THERE SHOULD BE LIMITS ON HER. STATISTS TAKE THE SELECTIVE APPROACH. WE'RE SUPPOSED TO BELIEVE IN EQUAL PROTECTION OF THE LAWS. DS]

deb needs to not read off signs/cue cards and do blogs on the fly… she is good on radio, I don’t see (understand) why she makes rehearsed looking vid blogs (her eyes seem to be “reading” at times). the whole point of vid blogs is speaking to the peeps from the heart.
On this issue I agree with deb only because of the crappy mcain/feingold garbage legi. Using Oprah is CLEARLY outside of those bounds imo but there is nary a word in the mainstream media about it. I suppose Obama is going to write a book (no matter what happens) and Oprah is going to pimp it. It is the perfect marriage… and all about money/publicity (duplicty?). Oprah gets to back a black but be white… er, and black, and play both sides.. it is so damn obvious. Oprah is not stupid, but she fools most of America. This is capitalism applied to political correctness (make money off what is working in the society)
