Despite the whiny insinuations of Oprah an aid of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has denied that she is purposely snubbing the crybaby day time host.
Sarah Palin’s camp is denying claims she’s is snubbing talk show host Oprah Winfrey, telling CNN Monday the decision was “nothing personal” — the Alaska governor has just been flooded with so many media requests she simply hasn’t had the time to sit down with the daytime talk show icon.
“The governor was invited to appear. She was also invited to appear on Letterman, Leno, Stephanopoulos, The Daily Show. She passed on a vast majority of these requests,” Bill McAllister, Palin’s communications director and press secretary.
“We’re up to about 250 requests for interviews and appearances and so on. It’s worldwide, there’s still a tremendous amount of interest. It’s nothing personal about Oprah, it’s just that she turned down the vast majority of these requests.”
A Palin appearance at a later date is still possible, said McAllister: “I’m not aware that it’s been ruled out.”
How much does that suck? I can understand Palin wanting to keep all media outlets open for her use but I still would’ve loved to have seen Palin lay a verbal smack down on Oprah for her disrespectful banning of Palin during the campaign because she didn’t want to make her show political (what a joke of an excuse on Oprah’s part by the way). Oh well… you can’t always get what you want I suppose.

Chances are that Oprah would do everything she could to screw over Gov. Palin. And there is no upside for the governor. So she should just be polite and go on with her life.
Oprah and Palin should be able to like whoever they want to like, too bad public scrutiny makes such a decision more complicated for them than it otherwise would be for an average person
Oprah’s calculated, childish, highly public whining was meant to get a rise out of the Palin camp. I’m sorry that Sarah didn’t actually snub her… not on purpose mind you, because I don’t think Sarah would be deliberately mean-spirited like that. More along the lines of “Don’tcha know, that would take a whole heck of a lot of oil to get me, here in Alaska, to and from Chicago, too much for Joe Six-Pack to pay for, and isn’t Harpo Productions in the land of lawless, evil thugs politicians? Hooo, boy, maybe not this time ’round, OK?”
