Sanjaya and Michael Phelps

Sanjaya was on Leno the night after he was voted off of American Idol, usurping Michael Phelps' ("Arguably, the best swimmer ever," said Matt. I'm not sure why. No one was arguing about it. In fact, I agreed with him immediately.) spot. Sanjaya, all smiles and coif described how in two months' time he'd gone from being nobody to being so famous he doesn't need a last name. Sanjaya. Ladies and gentleman, SANJAYA!!! I don't even know his last name. We live in a strange culture. Michael Phelps, arguably the best swimmer ever, and a fine, strapping athlete to boot, gets booted so that we can see the kid who just got kicked off American Idol. That and his smile are now his claim to fame; he can't sing. We live in a very strange culture. At least Michael Phelps can swim. Arguably so.
