American Idle

I admit that I watch American Idol from time to time. And, I am not going to get into some sort of rant about who should have won what and why. All the contestants are a bunch of souless ciphers. I got especially pissed off when that old dude started calling his fans the "Soul Patrol." Everyone who is in the know, knows that there was only one Soul Patrol. And they didn't butcher Stevie Wonder songs. Instead, it was the nickname for the Oakland Raiders secondary in the mid-70s and featured tough cats like Jack Tatum clotheslining Steeler wide receivers in 70s playoff games.

Instead, I want to applaud the show for its proud employment of a retarded person. Randy Jackson truly is a special person. He likes sound and reacts to it as best he can, even with his limited vocabulary. He makes, "Yo, yo, look, man. You did your thing, dog," mean something to him, and frankly the rest of us. I bet you he takes the bus by himself too.
