MEMO TO OPRAH ON PALIN

by MullOverThis

Memo To:   O

Re:              Palin on your couch

This Palin appointment to the Republican ticket as Vice President of the United States of America has invoked furor from many angles.  Some Hilary Clinton supporters are insulted that some strategists might have actually thought that Palin would be a Clinton substitute simply because she is a woman.  SNL immediately answered with a dingbat versus brainer spoof to illustrate the insanity of that tactic. 

 Many feminists or progressive women are appalled that Palin–an arch enemy to murdering babies (commonly known as abortion)–might be the Vice President or if need be, President of the United States of America.  Palin is highly unfavorable to those concerned about protecting Roe v. Wade, the strides of sex education, and women’s rights in general.  Having made rape victims pay for their own rape kits because it burdened the taxpayer too much makes Palin seem a bit anti-woman or entirely too withdrawn from reality for quite a bit of American women.  But the brouhaha doesn’t stop there.  High powered Republican party women were in-sensed by an increasing public challenge to Palin’s credibility, competence and judgment to be suitable for such an appointment.  They felt the need to back of all attacks on the basis of sex, throwing a blanket of “don’t touch Palin or you’re sexist” on the tough self-described pit bull.  Of course, Elizabeth from The View is so irate with Palin attacks that she can hardly keep her cool.  Lizzie’s party loyalty is humorous and frightening at the same time.  A potent Palin defender like Elizabeth believes that Palin is ready to be the President of the United States.  I guess she bonds with Palin on the athletic-got-some-babies thing, and we are white, so we can do anything note. 

This Palin is acceptable, in large part, because she is  White is a reasonable conclusion.   We all know that if Palin’s name was Sharweka Jones, who took six years to graduate from four different colleges, described her husband as a good old black derogatory neighborhood term of endearment “my nigga”, bragged about her ability to hunt down animals as recreation from planes partially funded by government funds, had one Down’s Syndrome baby on her broad hips, while hugging her teenage daughter who is pregnant out of wedlock, with her baby’s daddy dressed in hard sole shoes and a tie standing by the Jones’ side, there would be no need for this memo.  White people and even Black folks would tell Sharweka Jones to take NWA (N-word with an attitude) off of her hips, with a name inspired by one of her favorite rap groups, and finish parenting her children, TouchDown, Foul, Safe, and Yaga2bkiddinme, all of whose names were inspired by the love of football.   Sharweka wouldn’t even surpass ridiculousness to cause the average voter to have to dig deeper into her performance to know that she was a joke.  All of the other questionable issues, such as motivations for firings in her office, or having hired an administrator to completely subsidize her own responsibilities as the small town mayor wouldn’t even get attention.  As a black woman, O, you know how the same foolishness that is clearly visible on black folks somehow becomes glistening qualities when white people want it to be right.  For your own reference, Tim Wise couldn’t have captured this concept better.  Take a moment and peruse This Is Your Nation On White Privilege, one of Wise’s latest articles posted on Red Room.

So now we come to how you become relevant in all of this.   We pretty much figured out that you thought you were an insular entity when it came to white maintstream women.  You’ve been telling the entire world, and they have been gleefully on-board, what to wear, what not to do, what to buy, what to read, what to watch, what to think, how to be hip, when to move on, and the whole nine yards.  An appearance on Oprah’s day-time talk show pretty much makes or breaks a situation because of your influence.  At least this holds true for the idiots who can’t think for themselves and realize that with all of your brilliance, you have been and will continue to be wrong from time to time simply because you are human and don’t always espouse the same values.  And, for those who are Christians and believe in demons, we certainly cannot give you too much regard when you invite guests to summons demons to appear, and hopefully will have the power to re-summons Abraham’s spirit to appear on another episode of your show.  Some of us realize that you are a person who has a right to think what you want to, even if you are an ardent supporter of Obama who has thrown your weight of influence, star-power, and mullah to help Obama win the election.  You are a citizen and have a right to want to see your candidate of choice make it to the White House. 

Just in case you were unaware, a number of white women don’t care about your personal or professional standards in not permitting Palin to be interviewed on your show.  They want to see Palin hit your couch with the cameras rolling.  They have a right, at least in their minds, to see their girl get the Oprah exposure.  Never mind your even-handed policy which has stated that during the campaign, you would not have any of the candidates on your show.  That is not enough, because it doesn’t give Palin supporters what they want.  What they want is to see her in a setting that they are familiar with:  your set and you.  So, here’s a compromise for you to consider.  Ship your couch to Ellen, Martha Stewart, or Bonnie and let’s see how much influence they can muster-up to help appease the pain you’ve inflicted on the moms and housewives who can identify with Palin.  Maybe Rosie will even come out of retirement to put her status signature on Palin.

The other alternative will have to include waiting for these up-risers to calm-down, or to live with their threats to never watch your show again.  In either case, you will still be O and have millions of viewers all over the world.  Somehow, I think you’ll more than survive.
