Re: Oprah Windbag

Perhaps, Abe, Oprah is peeved that Sarah Palin demonstrates so little patience with psychobabble, especially when it is used to justify a run for the White House. One of my favorite lines from her speech:

My fellow citizens, the American presidency is not supposed to be a journey of “personal discovery.”

Palin seems, upon further reflection, to be rather ill suited to play the role of patient/guest on the Oprah coach. She exudes confidence, refuses to whine,  and emphasizes action over good intentions.  What on earth would they have in common?

A guest appearance on Grizzly Man Diaries would be a better idea.
