It would seem as though the great powers of the American Idol machine have once again lured you into a televised trance of simulated enthusiasm, and like the prison colony at French Guiana, there is no escape.
All day, seemingly intelligent people on the radio, TV, newspapers and at work have been complaining because some performer they liked was supposedly voted off of America's favorite talent show. What these people failed to realize is that they are being manipulated by the largest media conglomerate in the world - Fox.
Please, I beseech you, do not allow the powers at the most powerful media outlet in the world to manipulate your feelings. Chances are, the joker who was seemingly voted off of this ridiculous charade of a television show was done so because it would get a rise out of you. In that respect, you have fulfilled their expectations. Congratulations - you have been had. You are talking about the show, which was their intent from the start.
Please do not allow your feelings to be manipulated by these rotten people. They will do whatever is necessary to get you to talk about this sorry excuse for entertainment, and you will fall for it - unless you resist. So, do it. Resist the evil temptation of the apple that is American Idol, and do not allow yourself to be drawn in by their coercion.
I know people who drive two vehicles to their son's baseball games because the wife must be home in time to watch the show. Please - spare me - you will sacrifice time with your flesh and blood in order to watch a television program? What kind of society are we living in? Get a grip folks, and stop (please) allowing big business to influence your behavior.
Face it gang, there is no real voting. The show is too big for itself, and it has outgrown it's own media-created glory. There is no way anyone but the conglomerate-accepted winner will prevail, so save your money and tame your aggravation. It doesn't matter what you think. You are powerless to change the momentum of the AI Machine, so watch it if you must, but accept it as entertainment and nothing more. If it rules your life, your life is not worth much.
