A WikiLeaks blush – just call Oprah

And now for International political embarrassment. I’m not talking of Julian Assange and WikiLeaks either. I’m talking of the grovelling and fawning towards the talk show host, Oprah Winfrey.

Instead of running the country our Prime Minister and Premiers are laying down as the red carpet for Oprah following her arrival in Australia. As good as she is as a talk show host (and rich as hell to boot); she is still a talk show host.

The obsequious behaviour of our Pollies treating Oprah as a Godette is just amazingly embarrassing.

Oprah must have left footprints over our Pollies backs as they lay down in supplication to meet and greet her.

I know Oprah seems like a pretty good sheila but shouldn’t our Pollies be off on official business  instead of photo opportunities?

I wonder what the world thinks of this display towards a TV chat show host?

Word for today: Struth. Just struth.

More to come, same blog time, same blog channel.
