where nothing is real, and nothing else is sacred.

When you’re a finalist on American Idol,

(AP Photo/Kevork Djansezian) “you’d think you’d wear a dress that actually fits. Conversely, I suppose you could give America one last chance to watch you hitch up your dress over your unshapely, water-retaining flesh. Because you’re a STAR now.”

  2. yes, and i’m sure as a ‘certified adult’ it’s in poor taste for me to pick on 17-year-olds.

    conversely, picking on 17-year-olds is exactly what i do for a modest stipend virtually every other time i referee a soccer match, and her parents DID, presumably, basically put her up for auction by letting her on AI in the first place.

    i’ll even go so far as to admit to never watching the show myself (i believe i have far better things to do with my life). on the other hand, the fact that a slightly overweight teenage girl with reportedly limited vocal talent is selected over a twenty-something male with a reportedly appreciable set of lungs (not to mention more experience) says quite a lot about the state of mind of the generation that is shortly coming to voting age.

    ‘egads’ is pretty much all i can say.
