Five hundred million citizens of the US voted this season for American Idol contestants. Shocking. Did even a fraction of those show up at the polls for the presidential election? But again, the American people didn’t disappoint in selecting a winner. Like George W Bush, Carrie Underwood was the blatantly inferior candidate. As she sang her victory song (next week’s chart-topper, “I’ll Meet You in Heaven” or some such), choking back humble sobs of joy, she didn’t once hit a right note – and, ironically, the song only had one note. Shame on you, America. Now your punishment (and ours, and we’re innocent!) will be having to listen to her. Meanwhile, we predict Bo will hook up with the Skynyrd and have a pleasant career anyway.
