Hexapus and AI Stripper rule the news

Some people are calling this the most important presidential election of our lifetime. So, one might expect that all eyes would be on the Ohio and Texas primaries today, right?

Not quite.

Here’s the CNN top stories today. If you make it past the American Idol stripper and the six-legged octopus (hexapus?), you’ll see that the story of today’s primaries is at #10.

God Bless America and our strippers and our politicians (in that order).

Looks like your election is bigger news north of the boarder. Here are the top stories on the CBC (Canadian Brodcast Corporation) News site.

1. Canadian sentenced to beheading in Saudi Arabia

2. Albertans elect historic 11th straight Tory government

3. Crucial primaries could signal fate of Clinton candidacy

Kelsey says:

I think you Canadians should be allowed to vote in U.S. elections. Heck, y’all are better informed about our politics; you probably know what’s best for us.

Matt says:

No wonder Danny Noriega is trying so hard to stay on the show.

Kelsey says:

Matt, you just outed yourself as an American Idol fan. Danny has a beautiful voice that makes you cry when you hear it, doesn’t he?

Matt says:

I love watching American Idol. It makes me feel a lot better about myself. I want to stab Danny in the face with a rusty garden spade.

Melissa says:

I can’t believe “Van Halen has medical tests” ranks higher than th election!

Kent says:

I donno Kels… Canadian Idol isn’t on yet. That could affect the nation’s awareness.

Kelsey says:

Melissa, I CAN believe Van Halen outranks the election. A presidential term is only 4 years, but Van Halen’s “Jump” is forever.

Kent, does American Idol air in Canada? If so, which show gets better ratings? Can you name one Canadian Idol I’ve heard of?

Kent says:

CTV picks up FOX’s broadcast of American Idol and beams the show across the country. However, Canadians rightfully have no say in who becomes the next president, or the next idol. Hence, Canadian Idol which generally starts a few weeks after the American Idol final.

And no… I can’t even name a Canadian Idol that I’ve heard of.

Kent says:

wait a minutes… CNN has got us again. Here we are talking about Idol instead of the primaries!

Have you ever seen the movie Idiocracy? It’s true!

Kelsey says:

Kent, I’m all for Canadians voting for President, but allowing them to vote for the American Idol…that just would be wrong.

I haven’t seen Idiocracy, but, really, does a bee want to watch a movie about living in a bee hive?

Let your voice be heard!
