Okay, obviously America has no problem with ridiculing others. Otherwise, American Idol viewers wouldn't have been on a steady incline the past several years, and talking about how celebs look (e.g. best and worst dressed) wouldn't exist in the tabloids. Perhaps the tabloids themselves would be non existent. And let's not forget our school systems, where self esteem is in total abunance. Yuh huh. The people who try out for American Idol don't have mental problems as Rosie says, but are in fact in denial. Perhaps their family and friends are to blame as well, for they encourage these non singing fools to audition on national television. Hello- if they can't sing at home, they damn sure can't sing in front of the judges. (However, if there was someone who did have a disability, I mean, not guessing, if you knew for a fact that there was someone like that on the show ever, then that's different, obviously, and I am by no means referring to them). Speaking of the judges, if you've ever seen the show, even just one episode, then you know to expect ridicule for something , be it hair, clothes, or the way you sing, whatever. Simon doesn't have a sensor, and is 100% honest twenty-four seven. If you can't handle it, don't waste your time audtioning or watching his show. Furthermore, I don't know if Paula is knocking back the alcohol or not, but really, does it matter what she has to say beyond the realm of that show? Don't think so. Back to Rosie- who is she to cast stones? I mean, I love Rosie, and I watch The View more because she's on it, but hell, didn't she start a feud last week with Donald Trump? Mocking him with facial expressions and sweeping her hair to the side like a comb over? Or how about when she didn' think what Michael Richard's said wasn't all that bad? He's a comedian after all... Bah. I think American Idol is at it's best when I get to see all the folks who didn't make it- I enjoy a good laugh. Come on, people, these aren't children. And they aren't insane or disabled. They signed a waver, wanted their five minutes, and we all get to see the process. If people didn't want to see this, American Idol would have been cancled years ago... Merely saying.

Umustbekidding- Well, Rosie most certainly gave "The View" a ginormous ratings boost. As for the allegedly "special" contestants this season thus far on American Idol (though I haven't seen either ep this week in its entirety, which ones were you referring to? The ones I saw may have been lame, and thus socially awkward, but from what I saw, I did not see someone who I thought to be disabled. NICEgirl- It would have been better if dear ol' dad mentioned the piano lessons *after* she embarassed herself on national television where everyone could see and post it on you tube or something. That's what I mean- I place a lot of the blame on the family members, cause they should tell them before they leave the house that they suck...

sepelo- I thought The Donald's open letter to Rosie to be particularly amusing. And poor Barbara, caught in the middle... okay, not really. Asian American Idol- I totally agree. But I too haven't watch the first two eps all the way through- I think "I Love NY" was on or something. I find that more entertaining. MsCongeniality- Um... Perhaps not sexually, but she does have personality. But if I were gay, I'd probably be more inclined towards Ellen.

I've followed the show since about halfway through Season 2, so I missed the auditions from both of those seasons (other than the outstandingly good/bad ones that got posted on the Internet). I have seen the audition rounds from every subsequent season, including this one. Yes, some of these people are seriously in need of a reality check, kind of like the ones on dating sites who got the short end of the gene pool, but still label themselves as "very good looking" or "hot." Sorry to make fun of people's looks, but no one who looks like that Darwin chick needs to be singing anything with lyrics like, "Don't you wish your girlfriend was hot like me?" and especially not in an audition on national television.

I am not a big fan of her brash style. . .but I have to say I enjoyed the feud between those two as much as I enjoy the fights on the blogs. Its just plain fun in my opinion.
