Oprah -- I Got Dragged into Blago's Sphere

1/26/2009 1:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Oprah WinfreyIf Oprah Winfrey was under consideration for Barack Obama's Senate seat by Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, it was news to her....

Oprah told BFF Gayle King on her Sirius radio show she never was contacted by Guv Rod Blagojevich. It's a good thing, says Oprah, she wasn't watching "GMA," because "I would have fallen off the treadmill."

Now that's good news....

Why not give oprah a senate seat? It's become painfully obvious that no experience is needed to run this country. Just being the correct race. Seeing as i'm a receptionist i thought of going for a secretary of state position. Of course my first order of business would be changing my title to administrative professional of the state.

The way Obama has been picking is cabinet I wouldn't put it past him to have tried to get his good buddy Oprah into the senate. He owes a lot of favors.

Do you realize how much it would cost the taxpayers to widen Obama's former senate seat, had she accepted?

I caught an episode of TMZ on the tube the other day and I have a question - Why are all the fat ugly chicks sitting in the background?

Q    

Oprah knows how it works in her home state Illinois---its Pay to Play there. She knows the dirty little secrets and she has oh so wanted to be in the realm and out of the showbiz part for so long now. Just as Rahm Emmaunel, Obama, Daley, Jesse Jackson Jr, and Blago and the rest of them know the rules so does she...she's just hoping she or one of her "emissaries" werent caught on tape by the Feds discussing what they would "pay" to in fact "play".

They're all dirty folks----and some are about to get exposed. I wouldnt be surprised if Blago doesnt stop talking someone will try and shut him up...Chicago Politics, stay out of them, they can get dangerous if you dont pay to play.

uhHuh    

NO NEWS THAT YOU CAN BUY A SEAT AND OPRAH BOUGHT OBAMA INTO THE WHITEHOUSE. SHE IS LESS EXPERIENCED THAN HE IS, SO MAYBE A GOOD THING HE WAS IMPEACHED FIRST, SAVED THAT ONE FROM HAPPPENING!! WHO'S NEXT? GOVERNOR MADONNA??? IF SHE CARED SO MUCH FOR AMERICAN PEOPLE WHO MADE HER WHAT SHE IS, SHE WOULD SHARE THE WEALTH IN HER HOMELAND WHERE SCHOOLS & HOMELESSNESS ALSO NEED HELP. SHE CHOOSES TO SEND HER FORTUNE OUT OF COUNTRY . WHO'S PREJUDICE?? SHE IS. I'VE NEVER SEEN HER FUND ANYTHING THAT WASNT REFLECTIVE OF HER BLACK HERITAGE. AND IT WASNT THE GHETTO OR AFRICA THAT FUNDED HER. THE GOOD OLE USA MADE HER-SHOW SOME LOVE HERE BIG MAMA!!!

All of you ragging on Oprah are just jealous of her and really, really stupid. At least when she has a problem (weight), she confronts it head on instead of hiding behind a computer eating gubmint cheese like most of you.

As far as experience to be in government office goes, Oprah has just the kind of experience to be an asset to most offices, not that she wants one. She knows how to work well with other people to get the best out of them, get the information needed to make good decisions, which is what a good senator or even president does. There are always a lot of issues that no one person can know all the answers to - being good at the job is finding the answers.

Sad lot most of the TMZ posters are..... sad, stupid lot.

Nobody is saying Oprah was pursuing the Senate seat, only that Wacko Blago was considering her for the job.

In any case, Chicago is a political cesspool - Blago is the most colorful politician since Bill Clinton came out of Arkansas. BLAGO FOR PRESIDENT 2012 !!!
