I'd feel better…

…if Senator Obama was just a little pickier about the company he keeps.
In the case of Oprah, she belongs to three different craft unions herself (as a performer), yet refuses to allow union representation of any sort inside the doors of her studio, instead paying substandard wages and benefits to non-union crews. It is a travesty that Oprah feels no responsibility to those who helped her create her billions in profit, but that’s the way things are and it’s part of the reason union representation is so vital in this industry.
Never really dug Oprah's act, but this is complicating my efforts to find things to like about the gentleman from Illinois.

Hat tip to Digby.
