Oh.... My..... Gawd.....

Whoever came up with this idea should be publicly identified so they can get the mocking and belittling they so richly deserve...

"Are you a soldier who loves to sing? Do you sing in your car, the shower? Do you dream of singing on stage in front of a live audience? Well it’s time to stop dreaming and start doing. Log on to www.Militaryidol.com for details on the first Military Idol competition to see if you have what it takes to be number one.
"Thirty-six Army installations will be hosting Military Idol starting this August. This multi-week competition will combine the popularity of the TV show American Idol with the talents of our military performers, and is sure to be a win-win situation for all involved. The top “Idol” at each installation will advance to compete in the national Army-wide competition for bragging rights as the Army’s top “Military Idol” and a chance to win $1,000..."


"Military Idol"?!? The only "win-win" I can see coming from this is the abuse that both Sailors and Airmen will be able to give Soldiers over the lameness of Army MWR. I'll be interested to see if the Army boys from Castle Argghhh! have anything to say...

Going deep...

You're right, whoever came up with this idea should be drawn and quartered. And tied to a chair in a sealed room for a month with non-stop William Hung playing...

How degrading to military people. I really hope no one participates in this. The American Idol series is all about what's worst in our society.

Well, they could have the show at Guantanamo. That might finally break the terrorists there, then we can let them go and get the press of our backs..
