Political chatter from DC and NYC, the amNewYork way
Hands down, the biggest spectacle in this election so far has been the Rev. Wright scandal. Thats my story and Im sticking to it. Because Ive exorcised that demon already, though, Id like to share my favorite bit of ridiculousness thus far: The candidates speak out on American Idol! What better way to connect with that extremely important demographic of tweens who cannot vote?
If I were judging these appearances Paula Abdul-style, I would anoint McCain the winner for his excellent imitation of that thing called humor. Who else could so successfully pander to the kiddies by combining the charm of that uncle who makes you pull his finger every Thanksgiving with the stiffness and menace of Dr. Evil? Hes hip. Hes with it. Tucka-tucka, tucka-tucka
