Roseanne Barr on Oprama

Roseanne Barr recently posted the following comments on her website:
"Obama sells hope in lieu of TRUTH. Obama votes with Bush constantly funding this terrible endless war. He is anti union in his votes, corporately owned as completely as hilary is, and this just proves how stupid americans are and how they can be tricked so easily by the color of a person's skin...exactly what MLK hated! Obama doesn't even back reproductive rights for any woman! It is historical that Oprah Winfrey, beloved of women, chooses a flashy man with small credentials over a seasoned woman politician with 35 years of experience...and sells that to the female demographic who look to her for inspiration!

She goes on to add:
"Obama votes with Bush constantly funding this terrible endless war.
Oprah, you play the race card and the gender card too. You are a closeted republican and chose Barak Obama because you do not like other women who actually stand for something to working American Women besides glamour, angels, hollywood and dieting!
When Americans find out that Obama backs right wing corporate racist anti worker bullsh*t, they will not vote for him, and the victory will go to the most racist right wing republican ever.... Mccain, who is a fascist!"

Is she auditioning for The View again? Oprah can back whoever the h*ll she wants to. Obviously Oprah believes in Barack--she wouldn't put her credibility on the line otherwise--especially during the primaries. The fact that Barr dismisses Obama's message, his 11 years as an elected official, and his Harvard background and instead focuses on his race as the ONLY possible reason Oprah could support him raises some questions about her. Whateva Rosie.

She spelled Obama's first name wrong.

Oprah wouldn't be able to win. If she was backing Hilary, they would say it's only because she's a woman, they say she's backing Obama only because he's black, and if she was to back someone like Edwards, well then they would ask why on EARTH she can't back the woman or the African American! Grrrr!!!! This stuff REALLY chaps my booty.
