Oprah Wants to Produce the Barack Obama Show

Is this a joke? No, really. Has the American presidential election become such a joke that it's devolved into nothing more than a popularity contest? It's American Political Idol. Oprah Winfrey desperately wants to help produce the Barack Obama Show that's coming to the small screen on October 29th. From Drudge:

**Exclusive**

Oprah Winfrey is offering to "produce" the half-hour Barack Obama advertisement set to air on Oct. 29, a top source tells the DRUDGE REPORT. The Daytime TV dynamo has even offered up her studio space in Chicago.

"She's been begging Obama to let her help," a source explained.

O & O

It is not clear if the Obama campaign would pay Winfrey for any production services.

Requests for comment from Oprah went un-returned.

The Obama campaign finale is seen as a high risk move, designed to remove any remaining voter doubts on the first term senator.

CBS, NBC and FOX will air the info-commercial, with the start time of a potential World Series Game 6 being pushed back by eight minutes.

Mystery surrounds the production: Will it simply be Obama sitting at a desk reading TelePrompTer? Or will it incorporate multi-media elements, on the road footage, and sweeping historic images.

Developing...

Update: At this point, the only report I've found that denies Oprah wants to produce the Barack Obama show is this one. It reports that an Obama campaign official said the ad "will not be at Oprah Winfrey's Harpo Studios," but Obama doesn't have to be at Harpo Studios for Oprah to produce his show.

You keep telling yourself that. It's not gonna make it true, but maybe you'll feel better.

Michelle Obama, if she becomes First Lady, has been offered a job as co-host of Oprah. I think I'm losing my mind over all this crap.

I think it's a great idea. We can send Obama and Oprah to Indonesia (for good) and his first guests could be Raila Odinga, William Ayres, and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad with no pre-conditions. They can call their show the "Uh-O's."
