So, has Oprah's show been taken off the air yet?
I was just wondering, because you know last week that Florida Republican Women's group said they were going to boycott the show... I just figured the massive chain reaction this boycott was going to have would have led all the women across the country to turn off in droves, leaving Oprah a shameful, destitute wreck.

:sarcasm:

3. I suspect that that boycott will work exactly as well as O'Reilly's boycott of France.

4. She has a lot of Palin's demographic watching her show. But it's syndicated, so tough shit!

6. I'm sure she's concerned
Oprah probably has more cash on hand than the United States does right now.

7. On a more serious note, I don't get it
I don't get how Oprah's decision not to allow her show to be used to push the platform of ANY candidate, even the one she supports, is reason for a boycott. These people are just nuts.
