The Obama Oprah formula worth a million votes

| 5 Comments

University of Maryland professors just did a study concluding that Oprah Winfrey's campaigning for presumptive Democratic nominee Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) was worth about one million votes. To do the calculation yourself, the Sweet blog is pleased to help.

Uh huh. Right. And how many votes did we LOSE from this genius bit of theatre?

XO Oprah + XXOO Obama = TENURE?

Oprah won the nominations hands down. She's statistically tied with Hillary as the most admired woman in America. She made all the difference.

STOP BASHING OPRAH FOR HELPING OBAMA, SHE FELT
WHAT SHE WAS DOING WAS A GREAT FEAT, NOW HER SHOW
HAS TAKEN A HIT BECAUSE SHE ENTERED THE POLITICAL
ARENA, IF YOU RESPECT HER SHOW, START WATCHING IT
AGAIN, DON'T FORGET OPRAH WINFREY GREW UP IN
THE MAGNOLIA STATE, VERY HUMBLE BEGINNINGS, SHE
HAS BEEN AHEAD OF THE CURVE ALL OF HER LIFE!

Oprah is over rated, as is the rest of the american culture
