Is he worse off?

I’ve never watched American Idol, not out of some coffeehouse artier-than-thou protest, I just am not interested. I wasn’t interested in Star Search either and I LOVED tv in 1985, holy hell did I love tv in the 80’s. I don’t even know what night American Idol’s on, I don’t even know if I picked the right Sanjaya picture for this post, I just did a Google image search. I only know about Sanjayah from Howard Stern, who’s been voting for him and raising his masses to do the same. Last night I talked to Bart who was very upset at what a bunch of mean people had done to Sanjaya, a bunch of assholes who had nothing better to do but vote in this kid who was awful. That’s completely true. It’s the High School meatheads who vote the nerd Prom King so they can all laugh at him. But…isn’t Sanjaya better off for all this? Would he have been better off sitting in his living room for the last two months completely un-made-fun-of? I don’t know. I don’t have an answer. Of course it depends on what he does with his fame, just like it does for Leonardo DiCaprio and Andy Milonakis. Many would say Howard and the voters were wrong to do this, but then, aren’t we rightously defending the sanctity of this generation’s Cosby Show?
