What. The. Fuck. Has she converted to Scientology or something? What a freak.

@1, which one converted?

Seriously, I hear what Hillary says, read what she says and you can litterally see the trianglation going on. Hell, watch her on TV and you see the trianglation going on in her thought bubble.

I hate Hillary. I really really do.

On the news at noon today (KOMO 4 at 11) they were doing some banter about one of the newsreaders losing a Seahawks bet.

Then one of them says "OK now back to reality: Hilary was on the Tyra Banks show"

And the press leading up to this era wept.

I'm confused. Is Tyra credible now? I thought it had been established that she's batshit crazy, or not the sharpest knife in the drawer at the very least. I was about to ask why she wouldn't go on Oprah, but Duh. Glad I realized the answer to that question before I asked it. Upon reflection though, even though Oprah endorses Obama, why would that mean that she wouldn't invite other candidates onto her show to talk?

was that vaseline made out of diamonds? it sort of looked like it, and that would be the only explanation for that.

Hillary's doing it for the kids? Oh, well, it's settled then.

OMG, Tyra makes me want to bang my head against the wall. She is ridiculous. After her whole "I have a crippling fear of dolphins and can't get into water near them" show, my 11-year-old sister-in-law informed me that she is most afraid of dolphins. Further questioning led to her admitting it was because Tyra is, too.

God, I hate Tyra so much. And Hillary going on Tyra is a pretty fucking poor response to Oprah-Obama. I mean, come on, has anyone on her campaign watched 'The Soup' and their myriad of Tyra clips? How can you expect to be taken seriously as a candidate- man or woman- if you're on TYRA?

@9 - because most people are stupid, especially the ones that tune in to Tyra (base generalization).

Remember when a certain Presidential candidate went on Arsenio Hall and played the saxaphone? Remember that Arsenio wasn't exactly considered a journalistic heavyweight?

Lighten up.

What's TV? Is that like YouTube on steroids?

Just to note... Obama was on Tyra's show too.

I always knew Tyra was batshit but that takes the cake. Or vaseline, I guess. I assume she was poking fun at Oprah's giveaway shows - which is a much funnier parody that the SNL or Mad TV ones. I can't imagine ever watching her show but that was seriously hilarious.

I love Tyra, but I cannot stand her talk show. It is 100% idiotic. (I don't have to see the clip, I know how bizarre it must be.)

Top Model is great, though.
