Video: Mary Katharine Ham on Oprahbamapalooza; Update: Video fixed

posted at 7:25 pm on December 10, 2007 by Allahpundit

The Hammer seems to think this association could be mutually detrimental, making Obama’s already somewhat fluffy image as light as meringue and turning America’s daily afternoon self-help hour into a tedious series of sermons on why we need to go very, very soft on Iran. Isn’t there … a rather enormous upside, though? Plus, the symbolism of it all is irresistible. Kathy Griffin likes to say that Oprah thinks she’s Jesus, but now she gets to play John the Baptist for a guy with an even bigger messiah complex than she has. All they need is for the Goracle to do a walk-on at one of these events and they’ll have the holy trinity together at last, here to save mankind.

Update: Not sure why the video was coming up as unavailable. It should be fixed now.

And boom goes the dynamite.

Video disappeared while I was reading the text :(

askheaves on December 10, 2007 at 7:29 PM

That was a quick takedown by Rupert and company.

Thanks for continuing to make this a poor weekend of predictions for me :-)

I must’ve beat you guys to it…I saw the whole thing.

flipflop on December 10, 2007 at 7:33 PM

dude….

where’s the video?

tlynch001 on December 10, 2007 at 7:34 PM

Did Oprah strong-arm YouTube?

rivlax on December 10, 2007 at 7:35 PM

LOL@The holy trinity. We all know the Trinity was made up at the Council of Nicea to appease that pagans…..we do all know that, right? I guess that’s my Oneness Pentecostalism coming out it me. Anyways, it’s apropos for that group!

It’s so interesting how religion is dominating the nomination process in both parties.

JiangxiDad on December 10, 2007 at 7:36 PM

Damn!. I really wanted to see and hear MK’s thoughts on this, having read them at TH a few minutes ago.

sondiehl on December 10, 2007 at 7:36 PM

woulda been nice to see :(

trailortrash on December 10, 2007 at 7:37 PM

Too bad the video’s no longer available. You missed John Gibson’s rather deft comparison of Oprah’s convenient adoption of an ethnic accent with Hillary’s.

flipflop on December 10, 2007 at 7:37 PM

we do all know that, right?

please, you’re insulting us.

Nah – just had to deal with that Catch 22 – Jesus is God, but we already have a God, but he’s the Son of God…. ARRRRHHG.

For the sake of laziness, go here and be done with it:

I thought Trinity was that hot leather chick in The Matrix.

I was wondering who’d be the first to catch that reference.

flipflop on December 10, 2007 at 7:47 PM

Hey Man, John the Baptist ain’t part of the Trinity.

mikeyboss on December 10, 2007 at 7:49 PM

Give You Tube a few minutes to catch up. It doesn’t mean it got yanked; sometimes it just takes a while to become playable. I’ve gotten burned before claiming censorship in the comments when YouTube was just being slow.

see-dubya on December 10, 2007 at 7:54 PM

I watched it here within a few minutes after the post was up. It was only after I saw the comments that I checked back and it was down.

flipflop on December 10, 2007 at 8:02 PM

Video still down. Maybe Double-O are two-thirds of the Trinity. /jk

baldilocks on December 10, 2007 at 8:10 PM

MKH, on her TownHall blog, uses the term “Omentum”. Great!

mikeyboss on December 10, 2007 at 8:17 PM

Sorry for the glitch. Not sure what the problem is. Reuploading now.

Allahpundit on December 10, 2007 at 8:20 PM

Thanks, Allah. But I think I liked MK’s blog article better.

We’re all here to come together – to appreciate our uniqueness and to treasure our diversity, and we’re here to evolve to a higher plane,” she said. “The reason I love Barack Obama is because he is an evolved leader who can bring evolved leadership to our country.” Oprahh

You have to reproduce and die to evolve.

The Queen of self-love never disappoints. I can’t watch Oprah or Dr Phil or Joel Osteem for more than a few seconds. They have probed the depths of self with colonscopic determination and found themselves lovable.

Now Oprah has found a leader who has evolved to a higher plane. Perhaps he can take them all to the Mother Ship.

The Goracle has a mark on this forehead. Goracle helped launch the Ark of the New Earth Covenant to replace the Old Testament Covenant

John the Baptist was a moralist.

entagor on December 10, 2007 at 9:01 PM

Sorry, cut off the last sentence it should read -
John the Baptist was a moralist and they cut off his head to silence him.

entagor on December 10, 2007 at 9:02 PM

Never watched, nor understood the Oprah personality cult. What would Mark Twain say to it?

Entelechy on December 10, 2007 at 9:23 PM

When we remember we are all mad, the mysteries disappear and life stands explained.

Jehmu Greene said, “75% of her (Oprah) audience are women.” Who’s the other 25%? Kids who have to watch Oprah with their mothers?

Beta males.

Oprah’s eventual physical demise will be a cause for great celebration in my humble abode.

Oh, and btw, she can stump all she wants…Obama has NO CHANCE!

That’s because there is actually a God.

Beta males.

Spirit of 1776 on December 11, 2007 at 12:01 AM

Speaking on behalf of beta males everywhere (can I do that? it seems so presumptuous) Oprah’s male audience is further down the alphabet than beta. Gamma, perhaps…or even kappa.

James on December 11, 2007 at 7:40 AM

Oprah 29,000 Rush 40,000. Rush is 70% more popular and politically connected.

Oprah draws the stay at home moms (we need more of them to ensure the kids are raised properly) who expect Oprah to talk about their problems not her political views.

One thing to consider, awake-God may give us the President we deserve. Which would be really really bad. Because we are really really bad. All have sinned, and fall short of the Glory of God. Ouch.
