Ersatz Person of the Day
JANUARY 20, 2007
SIMON COWELL host of American Idol, now raking in millions, holding retarded “contestants” up for national ridicule as freaks. Well, December’s over and we can ditch all that “good will toward men” bullshit and get back to business. In this art project all concerned look like what they are. Mr. Cowell wakes up one morning looking just like a moray eel. Mr. Jonathan Jayne, a mentally handicapped, former Special Olympics participant who had been laughed at and derided by this “show”, likewise gets a newly visible inner self.
PS: Art Buchwald, recently dead, would pick on the powerful and never the poor, unlucky or ill. Already spinning.
