Palin Snubbed Oprah?

(CNN) – Did Sarah Palin snub Oprah Winfrey?

That’s what the most popular daytime talk show host and fervent Barack Obama supporter appeared to suggest in a recent interview with the entertainment show Extra.

“I said I would be happy to talk to Sarah Palin when the election was over… I went and tried to talk to Sarah Palin and instead she talked to Greta [Van Susteren]. She talked to Matt [Lauer]. She talked to Larry [King]. But she didn’t talk to me.”

Winfrey’s comments came in response to rumors she refused to invite the former vice presidential candidate on her popular daytime show.

Earlier this week, the talk show host announced she will tape her inauguration week show in the nation’s capital, and has rented the Kennedy Center’s lush Opera House – which seats roughly 2,300 — to serve as her studio.

“There are not even words to talk about what this night means,” Oprah said of Obama’s inauguration. “Everybody keeps using the word historic — there’s never been a night like this on the planet earth… Nothing can compare to this.”

Poor, poor Oprah. She didn’t get the Sarah Palin ratings boost post election bump for her show. It’s not everyday she is rebuffed. At least she still has the Obama inauguration night to cheer her up. After all, as Oprah says: “there’s never been a night like this on the planet earth.” Gee, why wouldn’t Sarah Palin want to share a couch with her and listen to this kind of gleeful worship of a mere mortal man who Oprah has helped to elevate to a ‘messiah’ of the universe?

    Oprah and Palin should be able to like whoever they want to like, too bad public scrutiny makes such a decision more complicated for them than it otherwise would be for an average person
