Casey James dodged a bullet last night, which can happen when you hail from a state where the governor packs a .380 Ruger handgun loaded with hollow points as protection against snakes (and the occasional coyote).
Really? Hollow points? .380? For snakes?
A little .22 mag loaded with snakeshot would be smaller, lighter, and more efficient, especially when jogging.
Anyhoo, the guv’s weapon of choice isn’t the point of this post.
The point is: How did Fort Worth’s Casey James fall to the Bottom Two in last night’s American Idol competition?
He nailed his Shania Twain song this week and earned unanimous praise from the judges. He’s the most musically talented among the contestants. He looks like a star. And he’s from Texas, by gawd!
What we need is a young woman with time on her hands, poetry in her heart, a laptop, and a desire to dig deep, analyze, exhume, probe, and generally shine her journalistic light into the obvious injustice America is witnessing as James fights for his Idol life!
Oh here’s one now: Under the headline, “What Is Casey James Doing Wrong?” entertainment blogger Victoria Leigh Miller surmises the cougar judges drooling over James early in the show might have created a backlash among some fans.
