Suck/lame results

First off, thanks for voting. I counted 27 "Idol" related posts and 20 votes. And it was a tightly contested election. So close, in fact, that it was dead even, 10 votes for Suck and 10 for Not Suck. There is possible controversy here, because I threw out KBL's "not-very-heartfelt suck" vote for being a hanging chad. KBL, do you mean your suck vote isn't very heartfelt, or that your not suck vote is not very heartfelt? Please be more clear next time.

A tie means my vote will determine Suck status. And my vote, of course, is not suck. I have written for too much about "American Idol" to explain why. If you must know, read this or this.

I know this result and the accompanying controversy might tear Under 30 readers into warring faction. But I beg for unity. Look for Suck/Lame next week.

I don't think the electorate should be punished just because you don't like overly-long hyphenate descriptors. It isn't even a squinting modifier!

Not-very-heartfelt is obviously a (long, hyphenated) modifier of suck, so it = suck, I'm just not militant about it the way I am with Dashboard Confessional (suck the the nth degree of suck).

Are you in league with Katherine Harris now?

I'm clearly not helping my cause by being too stupid to sign my name before hitting publish...

steve's love for "idol" just got him kicked out of our "freaks and geeks" club.

Yes, my precious rock and roll teaches me that American Idol sucks. The cat doesn't have my bong.
