WASHINGTON (CNN) – Sarah Palin will sit down with Oprah Winfrey the day before her new memoir hits bookstores, Harpo announced Tuesday.

The former Alaska governor will make the appearance on Oprah on November 16 to talk about her highly anticipated tell-all, "Going Rogue: An American Life."

Palin has never before appeared on the popular daytime talk show. Last December, Winfrey said she had invited her on the show to discuss the election, but suggested at the time that Palin had instead chose other interviewers.

"I said I would be happy to talk to Sarah Palin when the election was over... I went and tried to talk to Sarah Palin and instead she talked to Greta [Van Susteren]. She talked to Matt [Lauer]. She talked to Larry [King]. But she didn't talk to me," Oprah told the show Extra last year.

    Oprah is going to make her look like a fool and she wont even know what hit her!

    But it doesn't take much to make Palin look foolish.

  3. I hope Opra eats her alive...

    OH this could be interesting. Hopefully Oprah won't give her any slack. Hopefully she will prove once and for all that Ms Palin will never be politically correct.

    It's disappointing that Oprah would lower herself and give Palin any air time to push her book. Shame on Oprah! At the very least I hope she pulls a Katie Couric and blasts her on something she should know. I will not be watching Oprah that day.

    Too bad Oprah doesn't ask tough questions.

    This woman should not be getting any more attention, all she does is promote extreme ignorance and hate.

    I am still shocked that people still think 7 yrs at a junior college are equal or greater than Harvard Law and a decade as a constitutional law professor...

  6. RNC = DNC = politics as usual

    Oprah: "I said I would be happy to talk to Sarah Palin when the election was over..."

    What a hypocrite – she said she wouldn't interview candidates BUT Obama was different he got the personal promotion and the "He is THE ONE" speech from Oprah.

    How can someone state a policy then do something different ?- oh wait – Oprah, Obama, hmmmmmmmm.

    Sarah the Red against Oprah the Blue ... I'm surprised she will even fly to that Socialist wormhole known as Chicago ...lol ... An hour of TV on Sarah ... after 2 mins, I expect crickets to be sounding ...

    Oprah, get over it. Will you treat her fairly? I don't expect you to like her or faun over her like the "View" did Obama, but she deserves some respect and not Couric disdain.

    Interesting set of events. it is nice that Ms. Palin will be interviewed by Ms. Winfrey and she will probably get Ms. Winfrey's support for her book.

    Since leaving the governor's office Ms. Palin has written a book and will appear on the Oprah Show. She has also twittered and put any number of her ideas on Face Book. However, she has not given interviews or allowed us the opportunity to speak with her about her writings.

    Every Human who is born on Earth has a Value.

    1. Some have a Value of being a Doctor.
    2. Some have a Value of being a Plumber.
    3. Some have a Value of being a Janitor.
    4. Some have a Value of being a Truck Driver.
    5. And Some have a Value called "Nuisance Value"

    The Person at # 5 is always a Nuisance to Everybody, including to people from 1 through 4.

    Sarah Palin belongs to Category # 5.

    Could not go one day without running Palin on the Ticker? More red meat for the haters on the left. You know the ones from the party of compassion and understanding but only if you agree with them.

    The brainless and clueless are lining up all over America, breathlessly waiting for the life changing "tell all" tales of the wise and humble half-term governor of Alaska and Wingnut of the North. No wonder our country is becoming a second level world power.

    No one has any shame any more. Sarah Palin wants to hawk her ghost written book and Oprah wants to shore up her declining ratings.

    Just turn the television off and do something useful with your time.

    Miss Oprah should get a back up guest for that day, she will probably cancel and her publicist will claim it was not a firm committment. Since Rush is still smarting about his NFL rejection he might whisper in her ear for some payback.

    Why do you want her if she turned you down Oprah? don't lower yourself with this woman.

    Yes, because we all know how well she can ace an interview.
    She's such a cat-toy.

    Oprah, have your Wasillian dictionary, on the handy. Palinese is difficult to understand.
