Simon Cowell’s middle finger salute

by on March 24th, 2004

Drudge is all over the story of American Idol judge Simon Cowell’s on-air middle finger. Believe it or not, he’s actually corresponding with Fox executives to get to the bottom of this one. You can see the picture and decide for yourself whether the finger was not-so-innocent, but is this news?

Have we really come to the point where Janet Jackson’s mishap, Howard Stern’s antics, and Simon Cowell’s head-resting deserve the attention of an entire nation, sometimes the world?

And on marches the politically correct.

Whatever your opinion on the matter, I think we can all agree it’s better-suited for the supermarket check-out line than cable news and political Web sites (pun intended).

Granted, Drudge has been the champion of some of the most inane stories out there. Remember Mrs. Dean? I sure wish I didn’t. How someone can be dragged into the spotlight because of their wish to stay out is baffling–so was the discussion surrounding the story. Too bad the New York Times ran with it.

More recently, there was that pesky urinal. Did I care? No. But let’s all sit down and discuss a bathroom.

Or how about Kerry’s skiing incident. Fine. He called an agent an s-o-b. Pardon me while I yawn.

This is all news? You can count me out.
