I’m back on my blogging horse after spending a bunch of the last week on the road. And while I could write a mind grippingly substantive post like either of David’s, I just fell across a Boston Globe piece that brought Nancy’s most recent offering to mind:
Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton spent Friday answering New Hampshire’s voters’ questions — including one about would-be “American Idol” Sanjaya.
During a radio call-in on WOKQ-FM, the New York senator was asked what the United States can do about Sanjaya Malakar, the television show’s underdog candidate who critics say lacks any shred of talent.
“That’s the best question I’ve been asked in a long time,” Clinton said. “Well, you know, people can vote for whomever they want. That’s true in my election, and its true on ‘American Idol.’”
Unlike Sanjaya, Clinton is at the top of the polls and fundraising. In an April 3 New Hampshire poll sponsored by CNN and WMUR-TV, 27 percent favored Clinton, followed by John Edwards with 21 percent and Barack Obama at 20 percent.
To be clear, I don’t watch American Idol; everything I know about it comes from the Frenches. But here’s what I take from this: Incredibly, there is a subject more inane than “Hunter-gate” that presidential candidates are discussing.
