Camille/Constantine: the vote.

If the comment count on this blog can be regarded as some sort of vote: Constantine Maroulis is trouncing Camille Paglia. People are way more interested in discussing why the American people failed to keep Constantine on "American Idol" than why Camille Paglia thinks Americans need to concentrate on poetry reading to cure our culture's shared case of A.D.D.

Since I already posted about Constantine, in the interests of balance let me say something about Camille -

I'm a Madison resident, and I actually felt a little guilty about staying home to watch AmIdol rather than going to Borders to see Camille. I'm generally a fan of hers and she almost always has a unique take on things. However, after seeing your summary, I don't think I missed much. Her talk seemed to be ME, ME, ME, and her antipathy to blogs is puzzling. Maybe she's peaked as a thinker and her time has passed?

I don't watch American Idol (after the first season), so that's why I didn't post a comment on Constantine.

I didn't post anything on Camille because I have no idea what a "Post-Structuralist" is.

I have two reasons that I posted about AI and not Paglia. First, she is intellectually intimidating to me and AI is not. Now if you will excuse me I have to go watch the Apprentice.

Jim: I'm trying to point out why you shouldn't feel intimidated by it. But anyway, I just watched "The Apprentice" too.

Camille's version of "Bohemian Rhapsody" with Axl Rose at the "Tribute to Freddy" was the highlight of that show. Axl shouldn't have gone with the leather kilt, however.
