In case you didn't already know about Eliot Spitzer's history of questionable decision-making, with his self-promoting attacks on Wall Street and insurance companies, you must see this revelation from an article on the American Idol finalist, and champion of Vote for the Worst, Sanjaya:
"It was really weird because the governor of New York came up to me and said, `I'm a fan, I vote,'" he said.
Voting on American Idol? Being a fan of Sanjaya? Now, even the most ardent Democrat must admit that Spitzer is unfit to govern.
But American Idol also offers Governor Spitzer a shot at redemption. If he wants to show true leadership, he'll sue American Idol over its promotion of lower quality singers. The show bills itself as a talent competition, and to advance some lower-quality singers just because it makes for better television is surely false advertising, or some other offense a lawmaker can target.
