Oprah Pays For Stewart/Colbert Audience to Attend Rally

First Zsa Zsa Huffington offered to pony up about $250,000 for buses to the so-called “Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear” in DC next weekend, and now Oprah has entered the fray to help spread the event with astroturf until it’s mistaken for the Brady Bunch’s backyard.

From Tim Graham at Newsbusters:

“I know that you’ve got this huge event coming up, and I’m really excited about it, because I think that we need a bit more sanity in the world,” she said. “I’m sorry, Stephen, I’m not for the fear part, I’m for the sanity part. And I wanted to show my support for you, Jon, and also for your audience…(applause) so here’s what I did. I had my staff sneak into your studio early this morning with a little gift. Okay?”

She told the Daily Show audience to look under their seats, where they found red envelopes, which they opened. A woman screamed at the top of her lungs: “We’re going to the rally!” Oprah repeated “You’re going to the rally” four times. “Now get out there and restore some sanity!”

Huffington and Winfrey are spending a lot of cash to ship people to the rally — people who wouldn’t have attended unless somebody gave them a free ride. As far as I’m concerned, Arianna and Oprah’s money is helping make an ironic point for the right.
