You know, this is just absurd: Oprah celebrates that she saw drug addicts voting for Obama. Hahahha, oh it's a big funny joke, Obama won because the dregs of society stumbled across the street from rehab to vote. Hooray for Obama! Jubilant Junkies Say Yes We Can!

To paraphrase John McCain, I'd rather lose an election than champion the crackhead vote.

What ya’ trying to say Sarah, that drug addicts don’t know the issues? I’m sure they know just as much as the average Obama voter ;)

“When Obama is elected, I won’t have to worry about having enough money to buy my heroin, to get a new neddle…”

I don't find it so disturbing that drug addicts vote, but what I find disturbing was how Oprah said: "Yeah, we'll take the drug addicts' vote", in such a way that you could see she had semi-distain for drug addicts, but could overlook that, because, hey, they were voting for Obama!

I mean, if she had said: "I think that this is an amazing election, because it motivated everyone to come out and vote, even people in rehab." But no, she called them drug addicts, and said "we'll take their vote", just like you could imagine: well, we will take your money, and we don't care where it's coming from.

I am amazed that you had the stomach to watch her.
I just haven't been able to deal with her...

LOL, CaliValleyGirl! "Sure, we'll take your vote," indeed - Hubby was (jokingly but seriously) saying the same thing last night as you pointed out about "sure, we'll take your income..." (not that we'll have a choice... it'll just make me sick every time we get a federal benefit or a tax refund... it could've come from someone I like! Or it could've come from Oprah ;-) )

The irony of celebrity politics...

That's so racist.

Yeah I saw that on TV. It reminded me of what she referred to as her "Crash" moment when Hermes wouldn't let her come shop for a $12,000 purse after hours because they were, you know, closed and all.

Obama won because of her money though.
