Gee, Thanks "American Idol!"

Don't gasp: I didn't say it. President Bush did. It's well-known that I hate everything to do with "American Idol," especially that fossilized closet case Simon Cowell. But they finally did something useful last week with their charity special, "Idol Gives Back," which raised $70 million.

So George and Laura decided to thank America for showing its "good heart" to the rest of the world. And for paying attention to "American Idol" instead of the world. Only he didn't say that last part out loud--the sneaky little devil.

But he did offer to sing! And the clicking sound you heard immediately after was millions of TV sets being switched off simultaneously.

(You may have felt the ground shake, too, as everybody shuddered.)

I love American Idol, sorry. You could cut the sexual tension between Simon and Ryan with a knife. I want both Chris and Blake to win. I saw bush say that the money will be used to help children the world over. I wondered why he is so concerned about the rest of the world's young people while he has thrown away the lives of over 3200 American children in Iraq? They have families too. Ed

Chris...? Blake...? Yeah, sorry, not a watcher. Those names go right over my head. I just know who the judges are because of my brief viewings (I think 3) over the last 5 years, and yes, Simon and Ryan should just get a room already.

And Bush just argued that if our national security was not at stake, he would not send the soldiers into harm's way. (That his "national security" argument is an empty one doesn't seem to occur to him.)

How many people remember Iraq before the war. We had no fly zones over most of the country. We had spy satelites that can read a newspaper from outer space. We had fought them out of Kuwait. They had little chance to build WMD's. They couldn't fly a plane they only had Saddam to keep the peace. He did it by himself while our thousands of soldiers can't control the populace. What a mess, get out now, bush is an asshat. Ed
