My Take on American Idol
It is simple. The producers of Idol are convinced that David Archuleta will make them more money in the long run and have done everything they can to ensure he wins. I will go as far as to say that I doubt the voting is legitimate.
What their short sighted methods will do is serve to destroy American Idol. Everyone knows this year is rigged, so why will anyone watch it next year. The WWE is more realistic anymore.
Shame on them. Of course if David Cook wins, as he should, it won’t change anything. There is no reason Archuleta should have been in this long. He is great for a 16-year-old, but not in general. If the judges were to actually perform sexual favors on him, it would be more subtle than they way they praise him.
And don’t get me started on David JonBenet Ramsey’s Dad. What an ass. Any bets on how long until David either shoots his dad, or shoots heroin.
UPDATE: So every now and again I get my prayers answered... David Cook won! I am thrilled, not so much because I think he was a superior singer, but also because I enjoyed watching Archuleta's psycho stage-Dad's dreams being crushed. Don't worry, psycho, maybe you can get a free stay on the cruise ship li'l David works.
