Moral Courage: Woman Will Remain On Hunger Strike Until Sanjaya Is Eliminated From American Idol

Every once in a while I wonder if America has the backbone and grit anymore to face down Al Qaeda, and then a story like this comes along and answers my doubts with a resounding "Hell yeah!"

It should be noted that "J" considers the half-hour between "second brunch" and "pre-lunch" (or "plunch") to be a daily hunger strike.

Keep Sanjaya In: Anyone notice his sister is, um, more action-packed than The Temple of Doom on ladies' night(every lady gets a rose and a still-beating heart!)

They chose the wrong sibling. You can't teach the kind of talent she's got spilling out of her shirt.

You can, however, see it on YouTube.


They chose Sanjaya because he was a better singer. But only marginally so. Meanwhile, she's a born performer.

By the way, while Vote for the Worst has long been telling people to vote for the worst possible singer in order to ruin American Idol (if such a thing were possible), now Howard Stern is telling his many listerners to vote for the worst, too. Sanjaya, they've all decided.

I'm not sure if that's the cause of Sanjaya's dubious staying power. American Idol's largely teenaged-girl voters seem to have a bias in favor of males who are not sexually threatening to women. And also, seemingly, not sexually interested in women either.

The judges seem to be pulling a 180. They're praising Sanjaya's lame performances, with Randy offering the gold standard of "That was HOT, dude!" I think they're coming around to the possibility that 12 year old girls and 40 year old Howard Stern fans might just make Sanjaya the contest's winner, and they've got to start pretending they'll be happy with that outcome.

Next week even Simon may begin claiming that Sanjaya has really "evolved" as a performer.
