It's the power of the O! Oprah featuring Obama appeared in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina this past weekend. Together they brought in around 70,000 screaming fans. It's like the Beatles!
Several newspapers think Oprah completely outshone Obama. It has been dubbed the Oprah-bama tour. See, she gets top billing! This is the first time Oprah has publicly backed a Presidential candidate.
Oprah said, "For the very first time in my life, I feel compelled to stand up and speak out for the man who I believe has a new vision for America. I understand the difference between a book club and free refrigerators. I understand the difference between that and this critical moment in our nation's history. I believe that Barack Obama will bring statesmanship to the White House. I believe that he will lead with strength, conviction, honor and compassion."
If I was in the audience I'd be thinking, "I believe…I believe…blah..blah..just shut up and give me some free shit already, Oprah!"
Give me a free $4,000 fridge Oprah and I'll vote for you. I mean for Obama. I mean for Oprah. I mean for Obama. Shit! Which one of them is running again?
