Oprah Endorses Obama for U.S. President: Today's Cartoon

Point out someone whose political views are shaped by celebrity endorsements and I will join you in mocking them :D

Perhaps this is just an American phenomenon; but to me, the idea of supporting a candidate based solely on the recommendation of a popular TV personality makes about as much sense as recruiting a Heisman trophy winner to conduct open heart surgery. The way I see it, celebrities are a distraction from our problems, not a solution to them.

If Americans thought Christian conservatives were uninformed and easily manipulated, then take into consideration the belief that the millions of women who watch Oprah everyday not only need the talk show maven to tell them to vote, but apparently who to vote for as well... At least God is humble enough not to endorse candidates and allow his followers to cast their own ballots.
