Editor's note: As many of you who read this site know, the menu on here is often California news. From time to time, we look at national and world events, such as in the case of John McCain's pick for VP. This is another story on the current race for the White House.
When we heard the news that Oprah Winfrey doesn't want to book Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin (pictured to the left) on her show, well, we can't say we are surprised.
Oprah reportedly told staff members, half of whom reportedly want Palin to visit, no to having the Alaska governor as a guest. The bigtime Obama supporter apparently doesn't want her audience to hear both sides of the November election argument.
This is the same Oprah who last year blocked a visit on the show by Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, timed to a promotional tour of his autobiography.
Now we know the queen can decide just who she wants on her own show. But in the interest of fairness, doesn't it seem a little biased not to invite Palin.
Then again, maybe Oprah feels a little threatened by Palin. Come on, Oprah, we know you're a tough old lady. Have the courage to have Palin on and let your audience decide their choice this November.
And by the way, Palin is not running against your boy Obama.
