    Re: Sarah Palin gives Oprah biggest audience in two years

    Look, the answer is really simple.

    She's a polarizing figure.

    Many Liberals dislike her, and enjoy to ridicule her, so are likely to potentially tune in for no other reason than to see if she screws up or if there's something they can use to bash her on later.

    Many Conservatives like her, or are intrigued by the negative reaction to her her, so are likely to potentially tune in for no other reason than to see what she says and how she's treated.

    Then you have Oprah's normal viewership.

    You have a polarizing figure that both sides likes to watch and read/talk about on a popular show. Of course its going to draw big ratings

    I see, but Palin's entire family is fair game?? I guess talking about teen and pre-teen daughters is perfectly ok, but adult daughters are off limits???

    Someone had to do it.
    You're right, but I wouldn't want them representing me in court and I sure wouldn't want them running the country.

    No, I disagree with both, and my record on that speaks for itself.

    Why? Did you graduate law school? Grades and rankings mean jack **** to me. Their true knowledge of the law is what matters most, and can only be proven through meeting with the lawyer and talking to them, and seeing how they handle themselves in court. Period.

    What they did in law school 20 years earlier means jack and ****.

    You are entitled to your opinion, but I wouldn't want a slacker handling by legal affairs and finishing near the bottom of his class is a good indication of his character. Of course, plagiarizing in law school might have contributed to his low standing. But that is also a testament to his character isn't it?

    He plagiarized in law school and repeated the offense in 1988 during his presidential bid. I'd say his actions in law school were a good indicator of his actions as an adult.

    I don't get how someone RANKING lower (not lowest) among their peers somehow means they are a slacker. If everyone was .001 off of each other in as far as grade points then what does that make your silly little "ranking" ?

    I mean, there are plenty of reasons to talk **** about this pipsqueak, I just don't agree with people bringing up a 50-60 year old man's College grades from 20+ years ago as one of them, thats just stupid.

    75 people had better grades than him and only 8 were dumber than he was. But you feel free to choose a surgeon that finished in the bottom 2% of his class to operate on you.

    Re: Sarah Palin gives Oprah biggest audience in two years

    LOL...just a little perspective here, as a coke head and abused woman garnered 'highest ratings in two years' accolades just a short couple of months ago
    September 15, 2009

    Monday's 24th season premiere of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" -- which featured a heavily hyped interview with Whitney Houston -- notched an 8.0 rating/12 share in Nielsen's metered market overnight ratings. That's the highest single-day rating for "Oprah" in nearly two years, and up a healthy 45 percent over last season's premiere.

    [...]

    The lure of Houston talking openly about her drug abuse and marriage to Bobby Brown helped "Oprah" do best in Houston's one-time home city of Atlanta, where Winfrey's show earned a 10.6 rating. Winfrey more than doubled her year-to-year premiere ratings in New York, while improving by 73 percent and 85 percent in LA and Chicago, respectively.

    If the surgeon went to school 25 years ago, and had been successful since, then it would not bother me what his grades where. Some people just like to find things to bitch about.
