Roseanne Barr Slams Chauvinist Conservative Oprah

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

roseannewoman1.jpgFamous television star and overweight comedian Roseanne Barr launched a tirade on her BLOG (haha!) this week against Obama staffer Oprah Winfrey. Among other things, she called Oprah a “closeted republican,” then she made a sandwich because she’s fat, then she continued making fun of Oprah.

While Roseanne’s BLOG doesn’t work anymore, here’s how the American heroes at Fox News reported it:

“Oprah has given us Swartzenegger [sic] and Dr. Phil,” Roseanne writes. “If that was not offensive enough to decent thinking people, now she brings us Obama.”

Roseanne also “tells” Winfrey, “You are a closeted republican and chose Barak [sic] Obama because you do not like other women who actually stand for something to working American Women besides glamour, angels, Hollywood and dieting!”

Wednesday night, Roseanne wrote, “I have decided that having a woman president before any man of any color is what these times call for.”

But Thursday morning she said she “liked Obama, too.”

This is almost as good as that imaginary time when Arnold Palmer and Bob Barker had a crossover blog-teevee war debating the merits of Fred Thompson.
