At the risk of being stoned by fellow liberals...I dislike Oprah. She promotes pseudoscience, and (perhaps her greatest sin) she launched Dr. Phil's TV career. I unequivocally do not want her to run for president (not that that would actually happen, but still).
I've been stoned by liberals, and I still can't stand Oprah. Maybe the grass they stoned me with just wasn't potent enough.
The mocking has begun to take a humorous turn in some cases. I saw a post the other day with a clip of Trump and Megan Mullally performing the theme song from "Green Acres" on the Ellen Show, with the caption "Never let us forget this exists."
I had to point out the flack the Nixon got for "Sock it To Me?" on Laugh-in, Bill Clinton's sax-playing on Arsenio Hall and "Boxers or Briefs?", and Obama's Beer Summit as other examples of Presidents acting less than regally in an effort to humanize themselves. And this wasn't even that, but Trump having fun, apparently pre-candidacy. (Anybody know when they appeared on Ellen?)
Not only have they gone too far, their appalling lack of history is as fine a condemnation of government-run education as I've ever seen.
