Sarah Palin to appear on Oprah

Governor Parnell
In case there was any doubt that Sarah Palin’s upcoming memoir, Going Rogue, will be a bestseller she’s just been confirmed for the ultimate in promotional opportunities – a spot on Oprah. The Oprah Winfrey show is pretty excited to get the former Vice Presidential candidate and has put out a press release announcing that she’ll be on the show November 16th.

People Magazine has a brief to-the-point article about Palin’s upcoming appearance. They make it clear that she’s only doing the show to promote her book, having snubbed Oprah after the Presidential election. Obama-supporter Oprah said in December that she decided not to have either of the candidates on her show during the election but that she asked Palin afterwards and was snubbed. “I said I would be happy to talk to Sarah Palin when the election was over… I went and tried to talk to Sarah Palin and instead she talked to Greta [Van Susteren]. She talked to Matt [Lauer]. She talked to Larry [King]. But she didn’t talk to me. But maybe she’ll talk to me now that she has a book deal.”

The allmighty Oprah was right, and now that Sarah has a book coming out she’ll appear on her show:

Oh, what a difference a multimillion-dollar book deal makes.

About a year after Sarah Palin famously turned down a campaign season appearance with talk show host – and major Barack Obama supporter – Oprah Winfrey, the former GOP vice presidential candidate has agreed to take her turn on the couch.

Palin will appear Nov. 16 on ITALIC “The Oprah Winfrey Show”] and no doubt the subject of her upcoming book, Going Rogue: An American Life, will come up.

Interestingly, Winfrey called it months ago – quipping, “Maybe she’ll talk to me now that she has a book deal.”

I’ll try and watch Palin’s appearance on Oprah, but I have a hard time sitting through entire interviews with her. She jabbers on and doesn’t make sense when she’s nervous and I just end up feeling sorry for her. It’s hard to understand why someone who has trouble speaking off the cuff decided to pursue a career in politics, but it looks like it’s paying off well for her anyway. She didn’t even have to serve out her term as Governor of Alaska and just quit when those pesky ethics complaints got in the way. As she explained “only dead fish go with the flow” and do the jobs they signed up for. It takes a real shark to swim upstream to where the money is.

    exactly. she is pathetic.

  2. Cheryl says:

    Oh, why on Earth would Oprah have her on her show????? Yuck.

  3. bros says:

    she is a pathetic money grubber. she snubbed oprah when there was no book to promote, but now, she will whore herself out anywhere.

    please take whore off the moderation filter! everyone uses it in different ways and we all use the word famewhore. esp. if we are going to read posts about the kardashians and the gosselins, where nothing but whore out the kids and famewhore describes them better!

    Sarah, go home and help Bristol with her “two” babies.

    I’m conflicted actually – my first reaction is disappointment in Oprah that she would validate this women’s warped thinking by having her on the show and promoting her book. She’s putting money in this idiot’s pocket.

    On the other hand, I’m hoping that this will give the general public another honest look at Palin (a’la the Couric interviews). I’m interested to see how hard she interviews Palin.

  6. Bodhi says:

    I hope the Mighty O chews her up & spits her out! I work whrn Oprah’s show is on, but I don’t think i could watch it anyway. Palin irritates the hell out of me; even her voice grates my ears. Combine it with the bullshit she constantly spews & I get all rage-y

  7. Sudini says:

    ROFL @Bodhi! I totally agree. “all rage-y” is a great way to put it. Just her voice..I can’t.

  8. Sumodo says:

    I can’t wait! I bet Katie Couric can’t wait, either! Katie made mincemeat out of Sarah Palin, and if a semi-lightweight like Katie and do that, just IMAGINE what Oprah will do. Risky move for Team Palin, when a visit to THE VIEW would’ve given Elisabitchy the opportunity to fawn all over her. (But only if it was a non-Barbara Walters day!)The only thing “stupider” than Sarah Palin is this move to put her on Oprah. Let the games begin!

  9. This is going to be interesting. Palin needed to be on Oprah’s show to sell books, so Oprah undoubtedly has more leverage going into this interview. I wonder how she’ll use it. Palin is going to have a whole hour on her life by the Mighty Opes. Can she take it? I doubt it since she prefers softball interviews by her devotees.

  10. Eileen Yover says:

    I’m afraid O might disappoint. Surely Palin arranged something with the show that O can’t ask her certain questions before agreeing to come on. If she didn’t, she really is as stupid as we’ve all feared.
    LURRRVE Oprah!!! =D

  11. lucy says:

    I’ll be curious to see what tactic O takes. Fawning celeb BFF or hardcore journalist? I’m hoping for the latter. I would like to see Palin get pressed to admit that she quit as governor for the money of book deals and whatever else she’s got going on. But at the same time, I can’t stand listening to her BS and whining, so I probably wouldn’t watch anyway.

  12. bondbabe says:

    Maybe have some “empathy” when she stammers and yammers on, but please, do not PITY her. I understand nervousness.

    But SHE is the one who chose to run for office, and she also chose to write a book. With that comes public appearances if you want it to be successful. And thanks to the powers that be that WE chose not to elect her to office.

    Now make your own choice as to whether you will buy her book.

  13. michellllle says:

    Neither of these woman are as thick as they sound. Still, they’re both jokes but if you must compare Palin is the worst of the two. As for an intellectual exchange between two great minds, don’t hold your breath.

  14. Feebee says:

    Initial reaction: Oprah’s going to mop the floor with her.

    On second thoughts: I don’t know if Oprah’s balls are that big.

    Won’t someone give this kooky librarian looking broad a one-way ticket somewhere.
