Real genuine musicians would never do American Idol.
Real genuinely great men/leaders would never want to be politicians.
We put a few men on a pedestal when we vote for a president.
We put a few people on a pedestal when we vote for American Idol.
In both cases the true talent didn't even sign up to be in the game.
That's the point.
I agree wholeheartedly and think it's an excellent comparison.
I took a political class in college and all those kids were pretentious little fricks who were in it to get their picture taken with the governor. Seriously, nobody gives a shite that you went to the victory party. You and every other POS looking for an in and a shortcut were there. It's all a joke.
You might can tell I've got some personal experience with these types of people. I heavily resent them. They end up running the local campaign (putting out signs) and are thus big time. From there they arse kiss their way into $75,000 a year governor appointed positions. They have important people's numbers on speed dial. They are now better than you. Rinse, wash, repeat.
They know just enough about politics to be dangerous, and got in it for the victory parties. Not because they genuinely want to see change.
Much like those musicians would resent the idol winner, I guess. I know too many of them. But you're absolutely right.
