Sarah Palin kicks off the TV leg of her campaign to sell copies of "Going Rogue: An American Life" this afternoon on Oprah's syndicated talk show - which, in one of those happy coincidences, is happening at the exact same time Oprah is deeply mired in a campaign to revive that same show's ratings. We're live-blogging at 4 o'clock.
4:00: Oprah Gets Rolling:
4:02: It took Oprah under 2 minutes to make it all about her:
"You know there were reports last year that I had snubbed you during the election by not having you on my show. Did you feel snubbed?" she asked and yes it was her very first question.
Palin says no, apologetically, she was really busy what with this and that.
"Really?" Oprah asks incredulously. "So at the time of the campaign when everybody was saying that I was snubbing you, you didn't even know about it?"
This is already the best Oprah interview ever.
"It didn't register. No offense to you - but it wasn't the center of my universe, okay?" Palin says.
