EM writes on the cult of Oprah hosting the Obama Christmas special:
Don’t get me wrong, I envy her a little. Who wouldn’t want to be the person millions of gullible people turn to for advice on all the wrong things?
Indeed, and Oprah ought to be credited for having made more marriages miserable than most anyone else in history.
Which reminds me of Peter Drucker’s phrase,
The only reason the word guru is so popular is because charlatan is so hard to spell.
