Unite the nation or abuse the system?

I downloaded a 130MB backup file this afternoon for the server move and promised myself no weblog entries until I move servers. Well the new hosts are taking their time getting back to me and I just saw an article on my mothers coffee table that needs to be written about. And I quote…

Casey’s [Australian Idol Contestant] full-blood Aboriginal father Merv Donovan hopes his teenage daughter can unite the nation by winning Australian Idol singing the Aboriginal Anthem, Archie Roach’s Took The Children Away, live on air.

In short: what a load of bullshit. As if that isn’t the biggest ploy on earth to try and secure votes in the upcoming Australian Idol finals. What an absolute abuse of the system. I am too disgusted for words, so I will leave it at that. Good day.
