The talkshow diva, Oprah Winfrey, is showing her true colors, not that we didn’t know already. Oprah seems to be hiding behind the “I don’t want to be political” excuse as a reason not to have the Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin on her show, despite apparent demands from her audience and staff. The Drudge Report is reporting that she is refusing to invite Sarah Palin as a guest on her show despite showering Obama with unbridled opportunity. Not that she has to, but what an affront to the public! Can we not see right through her?
In this historic year when Oprah has openly celebrated Obama’s rise to stardom, shouldn’t she equally be excited over the rise of Sarah Palin, if only for the sake of all the hardworking women who’ve never been on equal ground with men? What a shame that Oprah sees no problem with being a part of the political apparatus of the Democratic Party yet apparently refuses to give the first female nominee from the Republican Party an equal opportunity to share her amazing story and rise to stardom.
Can it be that she has no concern for the equality of women when it comes to their representation in public office, and not just public office, but the highest post in the world? What an achievment, to be on a presidential ticket. What a story for the world to hear. With millions of viewers worldwide, I guarantee that there will be high viewer ratings. The hypocrisy is deafening. Maybe the world should really hear of Oprah’s cowardice and lack of interest in fairness and equality.
