If even Oprah's best friends think she should run for PDUS, then she needs to get some new friends.
Otherwise, we have to assume she's not anywhere near the saint she needs you to think she is, and neither are her friends.
Is anyone else as creeped-out as I am about the growing addiction to Reality TV? And that's in addition to the insane obsession with royalty.
Government is not The West Wing, folks!
It's way worse than that. It's real, and it's dirty, and it's a monstrous killer ruled by mega-corps to whom money is God. Oprah talks about her idea of God all the time, and if this God talks loudly enough (and if Kanye West doesn't hear it more loudly), she's going to make a run for the top of a very questionable heap.
Fame, and the power that comes with it, is an evil drug. Should Oprah swallow the pill, she will blow her cover as a bona fide do-gooder.
She's already getting the required prestigious awards. Will the Nobel Peace Prize be next? Or are the Nobel bunch still embarrassed about having given one to Obama for no reason other than to make him appear to be a good guy.
Jan 2018 - Time.Com: Oprah accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 75th Golden Globes on Sunday with a speech so powerful, the audience couldn’t stop begging her to run for president.
Though still playing it close to the cleavage, not to worry, Oprah's working her way carefully toward the big moment. She's already got her slogan: "A new day is on the horizon". Like all consummate actors, soon, soon, she will be ready for her closeup.
"I'm ready for my closeup Mr. DeMille." [YouTube 0.19]
Work it baby.
HowStuffWorks: 'Oh gee, I don't have the experience, I don't know enough.'
CNN: "I will never run for public office"
People: ‘God, if you think I’m supposed to run, you gotta tell me, and it has to be so clear that not even I can miss it.’
We get it, Oprah. You're a saint. And you spend a lot of money being one. You also make a lot of money being one. But as President it will be the taxpayers' money you'll be signing off on, and you may well make a lot of people feel really, really bad.
If you can see ahead to doing that without tossing your cookies in the White House toilet, then you aren't who you say you are. You're just a politician in waiting, and politicians (aka actors) say and do whatever works to put and keep themselves on the top rung.
It's been made abundantly clear that American presidents since Ronald Reagan are little more than showpieces for sinister directors, something for the camera to hone in on while the real work gets done around them. Canada has been infected by a similar disease, with Prime Calendar Boy Justin heading up a parade of second-rate action figures.
I see some hope, however, in that Oprah views herself as wanting to "make somebody feel really good" -- because there are a lot of little girls and boys who would certainly feel a lot better if American bombs stopped landing in their backyards, and if Jesus' birthplace were a little more accommodating to Palestinian kids.
"Suffer the little ones to come unto me", said Jesus. He didn't specify their colour or religious beliefs, but the ones in question are generally classified as people of "colour" if that's of any real importance to you, Oprah.
Colour and gender have certainly gained political importance (if only at election time), but will Oprah be "sister" to females of colour in Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Iran, Yemen ... ?
If not, then her innocent-sounding "Oh gee's" will eventually not fool anybody - except those hopelessly addicted to TV make-believe.
Not to mention that, if America simply must have a Black Female President, there are other much more highly qualified sisters than Oprah. Why doesn't she get behind one of those? Or do they not even exist in her dreamy little world of do-gooding for God?
Is there a more cold-blooded Oprah beneath those innocuous "Oh gee's" and the desire to "make somebody happy" -- an Oprah more in tune with Robert Jeffress:
Does she, like those men, not even bother with the New Testament? Does the Jesus she loves exist only in the Book of Revelation, the ravings of a lunatic about whom nothing is actually known regarding his credentials or any real connection at all with Jesus?
To be a Christian president, Oprah is going to have to sign off on the slaughter of little Islamic children. Has that not yet crossed her mind? Does she not fear the demons in the White House?
