The Best Photo In The History Of Mankind
I'd hate to give American Idol any more press or attention than it deserves, but this article from Salon was too good to pass up. Entitled "Is a vote for Sanjaya subversive?," writer David Marchese asks several renowned pop music critics - including Robert Christgau, Chuck Klosterman and Nelson George - the titular question. The graphic alone (at the top of this post) makes this article worth a read.
The best response, in my opinion, comes from Greil Marcus, who writes the following: "The notion of controversy over people voting for the guy whose hair stands up assumes that the previous winners are not national embarrassments."
Couldn't have said it better myself.
