BIG DILEMMA: OPRAH BALKS AT HOSTING SARAH PALIN; STAFF DIVIDED
Fri Sep 05 2008 08:55:46 ETOprah Winfrey may have introduced Democrat Barack Obama to the women of America -- but the talkshow queen is not rushing to embrace the first woman on a Republican presidential ticket!
Oprah's staff is sharply divided on the merits of booking Sarah Palin, sources tell the DRUDGE REPORT.
"Half of her staff really wants Sarah Palin on," an insider explains. "Oprah's website is getting tons of requests to put her on, but Oprah and a couple of her top people are adamantly against it because of Obama."
One executive close to Winfrey is warning any Palin ban could ignite a dramatic backlash!
It is not clear if Oprah has softened her position after watching Palin's historic convention speech.
Last year, Winfrey blocked an appearance by Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, timed to a promotional tour of his autobiography.
Oprah and executive producer Sheri Salata, who has contributed thousands of dollars to Obama's campaign, refused requests for comment.

Computer HackThe pro-life group Live Action is taking issue with YouTube over allegations of censorship.
Spokeswoman Lila Rose had posted videos proving that a caller offered donations to Planned Parenthood on the basis of using the money to abort black babies; and that the organization accepted the offer, in some cases "gleefully." But YouTube, according to a report from LifeNews.com, has blocked four videos over the past two months, labeling them as "inappropriate content."
"Those videos were up for over seven months. They garnered national media attention," says Rose. "They had together 160,000 views, and in just the past few weeks YouTube, one by one, has been taking them off [and] has been banning them from the website," she argues.
To Rose's knowledge, the videos did not violate YouTube policies. "[W]e are definitely concerned about this censorship. The videos need to be back up," she continues. "They tell an important story for the American public to know about this huge corporation that gets taxpayer money...."
Rose contends that Planned Parenthood receives roughly $300 milllion in taxpayer funds each year.

El Rushbo Rides in Smart Car August 4, 2008
RUSH: I don't know whether to admit it or not. No, I don't know if I'm going to post -- (interruption) you think I should tell 'em? Folks, I was up in Connecticut this weekend. A couple weeks ago, three weeks ago I was supposed to go up there for a member-guest golf tournament. I had to cancel it. So I took the trip this past weekend to make up for it. And my hosts, good friends of mine who live here in Palm Beach during the winter, bought a Smart Car. They bought one of those bubble things, a lawn mower with seats on it. There's a picture of me in it in the passenger side with my golf clubs and golf bags standing up in the little area -- 'cause there's no place to put the golf clubs if there are two people in the car. So there's a picture of this, and I happened to mention it to the staff. "You gotta post this on the website."
We actually went to the golf course in this thing, and I was embarrassed, I was hiding. I was hiding my head in my hands as we hit stop signs because I didn't want people at the intersections and other cars -- this thing gets stared at. It gets stared at because nobody can believe it. So I was embarrassed, I'm sitting there, I don't want to be spotted in this thing, imagine when that gets out. So, at any rate, yeah, I'll send Koko the picture. I've got the picture on my computer at home, but I'll send him the picture. It is funny. It's a hoot, these little golf clubs sticking up. Now, my friend's got this thing to go to the grocery store. They never take it on the highway, and I don't blame 'em. It has suspension of a golf cart. But here I'm thinking, you know, look at what the ChiComs are doing, the ChiComs are going crazy buying SUVs, pickup trucks and so forth. What are we doing? We are going backwards. Now we're riding around in lawn mowers. I used to joke about putting two seats on a lawn mower. Now it's for sale, and depending on where you go to buy one, there is a 16-month waiting list to get one of these things. I don't know how my friend got himself in front of the line, but he did.
