Sarah Palin Helped Oprah: Better Ratings Than With Obama!

Wow. That’s gotta be galling for Oprah to know that coddling Obama cost her so much. Meanwhile, a visit by Sarah Palin nets her the best ratings in years:

Monday’s episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” drew a 8.7 household rating and 13 share — the best since Oprah had the entire Osmond family on the show in 2007.

That means Palin also topped Oprah’s heavily viewed interviews with Whitney Houston at the start of the season.

Sarah Palin causes a press tsunami. Even Andrew Sullivan can’t absorb it all, poor dear. Fans wait breathlessly in lines for Sarah.

Maureen Dowd is predictably churlish. She’s defensive about her elite, insider status [humor, Sarah, make fun of these empty pumps, they can’t take humor]:

“We felt our very normalcy, our status as ordinary Americans,” she writes, “could be a much-needed fresh breeze blowing into Washington, D.C.”

It is also real hard to be a real, ordinary, hard-working American if you are part of “what used to be called ‘mainstream’ national media,” as Sarah scornfully writes. “The time has come to acknowledge that it is counterfeit objectivity the liberal media try to sell consumers,” she says. “A period in the great American experiment has passed.”

I was beginning to panic. I pored over the book to see if there was anything that I shared in common with this apotheosis of traditional American values.

Let me answer that for you: No. You have nothing in common with Sarah. Now that that’s solved…

Sarah Palin causes serious heartburn.
