The Oprah Syndrome

I just love this... it is a nice perspective on the stupid-celebrity-with-an-opinion thing. It goes after Celine Dion and some others.

[[ And nobody does an Oprah moment better than, well Oprah.

Hardly had Celine taken a breath than Oprah Winfrey, Sean Penn and their friends were posing for the cameras as they hugged people in New Orleans.

No mention of the fact that the assembled bodyguards and television crews actually disrupted the rescue operation.

The closing is classic:

[[ Not cynical but realistic. We're drinking neurosis from buckets offered by pop singers and television hosts. It's absurdity with a French accent. ]]

Appropriate to have the nauseating Dion make such comments, however, since Liberalism is like the Titanic---going down, and taking mostly poor folks with it.

A good article; I like the last sentence. :)

Pomoze Bog.

We LOVE Celine Dion's music in this family. We flew out to Vegas last year to see her show. Unfortunately, she is like most other celebrities, so full of herself, she can't hear how incredibly stupid she sounds. It's like Laura says, "SHUT UP AND SING!"
