Nice... you got the Oprah rainbow connection going on with your "tuesday is recycling day" douchebag awards re-post...

Hey, at least she's not yammering about her va-jay-jay.

ALL moments are Oprah's moment. (Jesus, shut up before she hears you!)

My eyes just rolled so far I saw my brain...

I can't tell if she is trying to become Barack's new wife, or Michelle's new husband.

Chez, you're generally on-target, but c'mon. Oprah has many faults, but she undoubtedly had a positive impact on this past election -- at the very least, swaying votes away from Hillary and into the Obama camp. Of all the things to beat her up about, should this be one of them?

Barack Obama clearly offered his wife to Oprah in exchange for the electoral victory. She granted his request and has come to claim what is hers. What's wrong with that? Michelle certainly doesn't look upset at the prospect of becoming a lesbian love slave. Of course she doesn't know that she's going to reside in Oprah's trophy room, just to the left of Tom Cruise's dignity and across from the minds of America's housewives, but still, it's a very nice room.

C'mon YZF. It's snarky, funny, and an all around fit for the website.
Plus it fits in an historical context (see item #3 from yesterday's posting "Tuesday is Recycling Day" for details).

It looks to me like Michelle is doing the friendly "get away from me" lean - and Oprah's grabbing her for dear life, as if saying..."Bitch, I PAID for this campaign, I'm getting my slice!"

BTW, you know Oprah's going off the air soon, right? She's shutting it down...rumor here has it, she may get a position in Barack's line-up, but who knows about that part.

I'm pretty apathetic on the whole Oprah thing. I couldn't tell you from experience what happens on one of her shows, though I can guess it isn't much different from all the other daytime television watched by lonely and bored people. They either really admire the guest, or use them as a "things can always be worse" ray of sunshine into their own lives. I used to watch the hell out of some Jerry Springer, though. It was much better before they bolted the chairs down.

I have nothing really bad to say about the woman, and I hear she's done some quite cool stuff. It doesn't mean I find it appropriate to be standing aside the future first couple in a large-scale photo op and eating up their stage mojo. Obama will be the voice of the nation, and Oprah will still be the voice of her marketing director. If she wanted pictures with them, she should have invited them on her show, not eaten up their air time. No one, not even Oprah, had anything to gain by her being on that stage.

Maybe Oprah can become a fixture at the white house - like a big bear skin rug.
