Vote Sanjaya

Nothing to do with college football but since we're still a couple months away from when Florida and Ohio State again meet to determine the national champion in another sport, we thought this some funny off-season filler...

Howard Stern - and apparently some others, specifically the website Vote For The Worst.com - are trying to derail the TV juggernaut, AMERICAN IDOL, by telling people to vote for Sanjaya Malakar, perhaps the least talented finalist in the show's history. If you haven't seen him, this kid makes 1 a.m. karaoke at the campus hangout look like Grammy material.

By promoting Mr. Malakar, Mr. Stern says he hopes to turn the talent competition into a farce and destroy its popularity. Adding an interesting twist to Stern's goal is fact that Simon Cowell has said he'd quit the show if Sanjaya wins.

Now, with a big pre-teen fan base, I don't know if Stern is what's fueling Sanjaya's easy sailing recently (he hasn't been among the bottom vote getters the last couple of weeks) or if Cowell really would give up the multi-millions by leaving the show, but it sure would be interesting to find out how far Fox would go to protect its Golden Goose and keep the Talent Train Wreck that is Sanjaya from winning. Might it turn into the modern day equivalent of the Twenty-One quiz show scandal?
