    Oprah won't allow Sarah Palin on her show, despite inviting Barack Obama TWICE:

    http://www.nypost.com/seven/09062008/news/nationalnews/palin_clubbed_by_oprah_snub_127736.htm

    Whoopi Goldberg is calling her a Nazi.

    US Weekly is having subscriptions canceled for its cover smear.

    I think all this crap is going to backfire. People (real, actual, American, that is) love this lady. The attacks by Hollywood, the anti-white racists and the elite press are just going to make the rest of us rally 'round.

    Will the rightwing ever stop crying like little girls about how mean the media are to Palin?

    Obama may have gone on Oprah, but he's also been live and unscripted on Meet the Press, ABC's This Week, and CBS's Face the Nation about a billion times.

    When Palin comes out of hiding and starts doing high profile, unscripted shows with real journalistic questions, I'll cut her slack if she wants to go on some infotainment shows.

    She wants to go on all fluff shows or do fluff interviews.

    Like her first (and only so far) interview that will be aired at next week at the latest. It's being done by Charlie Gibson in her own home town.

    Oh right, Charlie Gibson is interviewing Sarah Palin. Sounds like he'll ask tough questions and not allow Sarah to lie by doing his research. :rolleyes:

    Oh, and still no solo appearances scheduled, just ones with Grampa Mumbles.

    I don't think Palin deserves special treatment. She stepped into the political arena with the heavy hitters of politics. The poor little soccer mom image doesn't give her a free pass.

    what attacks? she's being given the same media scrutiny that ANY unknown politcal figure who has been placed in this position would be given.

    all this whining is what is going to backfire.

    Why can't Palin stand up to the media spotlight? Obama had to, McCain's had to, EVERY politician has to.

    When Palin took over Wasilla, the town had little long-term debt. By the time she was done, the town had close to $19 million in long-term debt, making the debt around $3000 per capita.

    She increased sales taxes, which hurts the middle class, and lowered property taxes which helps the rich. She is just like George Bush.

    The Palin attacks have already backfired bigtime.

    We'll just have to wait until Wednesday to find out exactly how badly Daily Kos pwned itself.

    I'm lovin' it :badgrin:
