I've watched your show for years. You get blacker the longer you're on tv. Your endorsement of Sen Obama was out of line. And, I believe you endorsed him only because he's black. After all, there have been lots of candidates over the years and you've never had fund raisers for any of them.
Of course you're entitled to your opinion, but I resent that famous people use their fame to publicly endorse any ANY candidate. After all, my opinion is as important as yours and I don't have a world wide audience.
I won't be watching your show so much any more.
