Hillary Clinton Talks about American Idol's Sanjaya
According to the Associated Press in the Kansas City Star, the under-talented "American Idol" contestant Sanjaya Malakar is getting the attention of presidential candidates these days. Sen. Hillary Clinton was asked what the United States can do about Malakar, the television show's underdog candidate who critics say lacks talent, during a radio call-in on WOKQ-FM. "That's the best question I've been asked in a long time," Clinton said. "Well, you know, people can vote for whomever they want. That's true in my election, and it's true on 'American Idol.'" Malakar is known for his hairstyles and has prompted controversy on the show by surviving deep into the voting on this season's "Idol."
India eNews reported that Clinton wouldn't say whether she would vote for Sanjaya Malakar as the new 'American Idol'. Clinton came up with a statement that would please the 'desi' and non-desi fans of Sanjaya. The New York senator was not taking any chances as Sanjaya's stock went up on Fox News' 'Bulls and Bears' and Bookmaker.com, the oldest established online gambling site, offered $500 for every $100 bet if Malakar doesn't make it to the next week.
