Are You Kidding Me?

Non-nursing post here:

My wife and I watched the results from America Has No Talent tonight, and in the end it came down to a toss up between a run-of-the-mill Elvis dude and the obviously talented baton twirler Jonathan Burkin.  So the Hoff goes first.  This is the drunk man who told Jonathan that he was "probably... the best baton twirler in the world" but then he casts his vote for second-rate Elvis.  Then Sharon, who wants to make babies with Elvis boy voted for Jonathan.  Okay, chance to redeem.  Then Piers votes for Elvis.  Seriously.  On a show where they keep touting the trip to Vegas, they are voting for yet another Elvis.

I suppose I shouldn't be too surprised.  This is, after all, the show that puts forth the bat-eater's wife, the drunk has-been, and the arrogant evil angry Brit as the true arbiters of talent.  Then they accomplish the impossible by selecting a host who makes Billy Ray Cyrus look good by comparison.

And can we please just do away with this idea that weepy whiny boy is as talented as Paul Potts?  If you still have doubts, compare the two.

At least my boy Eli is still in it.  If he gets kicked off then there is truly no talent left in the competition.

Update: If you look at the fine print on the title of the show, it actually says

"America's Got Talent but you wont find it here"
