Palin on Oprah: Lisa Watches So You Don't Have To

Posted: 12:23 PM ET

By Lisa de Moraes

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:
"You've been waiting and I've been waiting," Oprah says. Palin comes out and Oprah "woo-hoo's" her. They hug. Palin finger waves.

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.

Sarah Palin is no match for Obama. “As a Presidential Contender” she’ll be just another “All in your face buffoon” like John McCain was. I’m a conservative I tell you and as such I was one of the first of many out there to praise her on blogs for the great job she did with Obama separating the herds. But now I find the idea of Sarah Palin shadowing and discouraging in the tracks legitimate contenders to be very unprofessional, egotistical, unrealistic, and dreamy at best… Which will ultimately serve conservatives empty handed like McCain did before. "She just can’t play her own music.. and this is no time for a ride along."

Go Sarah! I love watching and reading about Sarah Palin's exposing the Republican party corruption behind the scenes!

Sarah's a one women wrecking ball! I love watching her self-destruct the entire GOP organization, smacking down McCain and Ole Morman Mitt.

Why is this posted on your website? I thought you covered this yesterday. Perhaps you can post Fox News' interview with her as well.

This is what I don't get, she definately did bash the Republican Party, so how is she going to run for president in 2012 after bashing the republicans.

Sarah Palin is the legitimate succesor of George Washington , Abraham Lincoln, en the founding Fathers they are all Presbiterians. That's why the USA is very prosperous, and desired by al people of the world.even Katholieks.But if they change that country, in to Katholicism, it wil become just as misserable as all Katholiek country in the world.And now they choose Kenyan as theyr president; The hunters of the Afro Amerikans, to enslave them en sold them to the west , because The arabien countrys must be keep white.that's the wil of Nabi Mohammed.
Obama is such an Arabian Afrikan. Arabie lay next to Afrika but how come they have no negro familie's down there?Zo as we can see in the West? Presbiterians never have slaves, Jezus vorbid it, he said :"Love thouw neighbour as you love your self.
All the slave keepers are Katholieks from France, in the south as Louisiana New Orleans en Florida , Katholieks only brings missery and pain for the people , Only some criminal Familie families may heve succeed ,but they will kill eachothers when some one of them is more succesfull as the others.Zie the mobs and rocketeers en drug barons in Mexico.or Chicago.

@ luckybee,
you must be pulling our legs, nobody can screw up the english as you pretend to do it!!
Washington had slaves and a black mistress.

luckybee   November 20th, 2009 1:55 am ET

Proof it dear Ted.Only de Katholiek southerners had them.
About the KuKlux Clan;the habits that they use comes from the Camarque, in South of france en Spain en not from the UK or Holland . Even nowadays , you can see them do the prossessi's dressed like the KuKlux Clan.
You know why Arabie is still white?although it lays near Afrika?
They cut all the balls of of theyr Afrikan slaves zo that they can not , make children en apoint them as eunug , any way if they survive the prosedure.
What they did to the girls You don't want to know that.

The presbiterians live according to the bijbel; and it says:" No one is above an other.
And it says :"love thow neigbour as if you love you're zelf.
If George Washington is a presbiterian, he will live according to this sayings of God.
