    Why do you loathe her?

    Let's put it this way. I would have considered voting for Obama a few weeks ago. Not really so much anymore.

    I'm not understanding the hatred here. I'm not saying I'm in love with her, but why hate her?

    I mean, damn. If she's not one of the top five success stories of my generation, I don't know who is.

    I like her for the simple fact she is encouraging people to read and do other positive things instead of foisting a boycott on her "enemies."
    I'm trying to think of a time when she went on the record ripping someone. She's proven you don't need to take other people down to succeed in the media.

    unlike that bitch Ellen (I'm only keeeding...) Ellen can adopt me and then give me away to her hairdresser's kid anytime...

    I think she's a raving phony. I think it's all about her. She doesn't give her audience a studio full of gifts at Christmas out of the goodness of her heart, she does it to bring attention to herself.

    When she shouts, it makes my skin crawl.

    She made Mitch Albom famous.

    While she tries to paint her show as some kind of force for change, I see it as TV fast food...easily digested and even more easily forgotten.

    Other than that she's A-OK.
