As the field of candidates was whittled down, our family became increasingly dissatisfied with the system.
The people we liked all seemed to drop out too early.
We all agreed that one of the candidates seemed to be a girly-man. It was something about his hair.
Another one was way too inexperienced to be ready for the top spot, and we were surprised how far his youth, minority status, smooth voice, and good looks got him.
As the battle continued, we despaired, and were amazed at the stupidity of the American electorate, who seem to reject the gifted and advance talentless hacks.
As the field narrowed, it became clear that either the African American or the woman had to go. The choice was made.
And we wondered to ourselves:
WHY THE HECK IS JASON STILL ON AMERICAN IDOL !!!
