Interesting post, and steeped in pithy humor… I quite agree with this.

Apparently, in Oprah’s view, instructing the general public on what books to buy, what diets to try, what movies to watch, and what cars to drive, pales in comparison to telling people what candidate to vote for; namely, Mr. Obama.

Over the past 20 years, Oprah’s morphed from everyone’s favorite sister – with the self deprecating wit and the boyfriend who won’t commit – to everyone’s overbearing mother – complete with an endless list of your current shortcomings, and dopey advice for your love life. I guess being the self-elected spokeswoman for all women – and a billionaire – just isn’t as fulfilling as one would think. Having the Queen of All Media explain why I should vote for ‘any’ candidate is like having the Queen of England give me housecleaning tips; it’s unwanted and unappreciated advice from the uninformed.
