Cruel Intentions

I'm the first to call out a retard, mock the fat "disabled" people who zizz around in scooters, and comment on bad skin . . . but last night was painful. I don't mean to kill your boners, y'all, but American Idol, last night, sank to a sadistic level I wasn't prepared to handle. I didn't think Simon's comments to the bona fide freaks -- not to mention Randy and Paula's cruel laughter -- were particularly amusing. In fact, my cold, black heart ached for them. How can these priveleged, filthy rich assholes live with themselves? When the cameras stop rolling, do they at all question the things they've done and said to these poor kids?

Seriously. I couldn't stop thinking about the look on the Bush Baby's face, or the way that chunky lisper stared at the judges as they tore him down. It bothered me all day at work, too, so I resolved not to contribute any negative commentary to last night's collection.


I'm not going to get on a moral high horse, because likely I wouldn't be able to reach the saddle anyway (I'm 5'0). But a line was crossed last night, so much so that I asked myself why I bother to watch the show.

Oh, except for Misha with the tits down to Mexico. Jesus fuck -- a bra, please? Her puffy nipples were mesmerizing and gag-worthy as they swayed and shimmied inside that sexy satin chemise.

Ugly cunt.

Both my daughter and I got a bit upset and misty eyed when all that fun was being made of the chubby kid. I'm not finding it comical that AI is using the cruelty to fat people schtick again. This year seems to be is worse than prior years using this tactic to pull more viewers in.

They were down right hateful and childish. But what do you expect from a drunk cheerleader and 2 out casts from Hell's Angels?

Blue, I hear you. I think they're gunning for a different audience than the one they had. I'll admit I enjoy the bad auditions. But it doesn't feel good laughing at people with real disabilities.

Jake's mom, good point. Abdul is a Vicodin-sucking slut with a career that sagged 20 years ago. I was bopping to her shitty tunes back in 1988! Who is she to judge anyway? When she released that song "Rush, Rush" I thought my fucking ears were bleeding from the discordant wail that was her voice.

And Randy can judge 'cause he plays bass? And Simon because . . . ?

You know what irks me? Randy, of all people, suddenly making fun of people with weight problems. Excuse me, wasn't it just a few short years ago he was in the same boat? We can't all afford gastric bypass and furthermore, he's packing the pounds on again. We'll see if he changes his tune ( no pun intended) as he balloons.

Nurse, yes. He's a tubba-slob! I see him starting to go all Oprah again. Not that there's anything wrong with being a misshapen blob of shit, but Randy making fun of heavy contestants is a case of the fat kettle calling the pot fat.

Ummm, I guess I hadn't noticed that Randy wasn't still obese. Isn't he?

He's still a monster, just a bit smaller.
