I dont think our culture is idiotic at all. And as for american idol - an idol or a singer, should have good looks and a good voice, that is what most of america thinks and that is also what I think. Sucks, its not fair but it is how it is, seeing how musicians make large sumps of money by doing concerts, album sales just wont cut it no more since you can get anything you want for free off of limewire.

As an American I apologize once again for our culture being idiotic. Ten minutes of Fox News is proof of this but CNN doing this is shocking. Who the heck cares about his weight? Nobody said anything about Bill Clinton's love handles but now its an issue? Good god there are so many other real issues in the world to worry about. This is why I can't watch American Idol. They vote off people that have talented voices but don't meet the "eye candy" requirements. Ever see these people while listening to them on your Ipod? Nope, me either so who cares how they look when looks are not the criteria? F-ing insane.

And that is why I remain isolated from the media... Who gives a flying feather about the weight of our president? As long as he's capable, I really don't care. I care about the issues and what that means for the country. I read the op-ed article, and I thought it was fairly well-crafted and I took it as a tongue-in-cheek sort of thing to read. The CNN Headline, as Cammy mentioned, is ridiculous. Honestly, there are more important issues in life than a few extra pounds and the media needs to recognize that and focus on something real. Like what's going on in the world, what tricks are going to be pulled out from somebody's sleeve in his last month and a half in office? Augh! Why the insanity?!

I was living in the jungle in the tropics for most of the summer, and the night before I flew home in August I stayed in a hotel; I had TV for the first time in six weeks, and the IS OBAMA TOO SKINNY TO BE PRESIDENT headline was the only thing being covered on CNN. All I could think was: "Wow, I really have not been missing much during my isolation from the media, have I?"
