Also, am I the only one who thinks David Archuleta is giving mediocre performances on purpose so that he can explode as a star in the final weeks of American Idol, since the people who are consistently brilliant throughout never win Melinda Doolittle?

    I might purposefully throw the contest if I thought there was any chance I would win Melinda Doolittle.

    oh, those guileless bambi eyes never fooled me for a minute. of course he’s pulling his punches–that’s what he’s being directed to do. the incomparably shrewd producers of that show know there’s nothing more boring, or ultimately deadly, than inevitability–screw melinda; ask me, it’s more of a shame hillary never figured that one out.

    Hmmm…not a bad theory.

  6. bill gates: You’ll just have to sign up and find out, won’t you?

    Andy: You know what, I’m with you on that one.

    mkf: Now you have me wondering whether Melinda Doolittle should be running for President.

    Jeffrey and Rick: I’m glad you have the good sense to agree with me.

    Let’s assume he is being heavily coached by the show’s producers to pull back. In fact, in recent weeks, he appears to have been drugged. The silly vacuous smile. The unfocused eyes. They’re drugging that poor boy. Something has got to be done soon before it’s too late. Someone’s got to save him. Hmm. Good movie script. Charles Busch as Paula Abdul who saves him (and seduces him).
