Butterfly Ballot, Telephone-Style

Rumors circulate that some were "tricked" into voting for Katharine McPhee when they meant to vote for Chris Daughtry on American Idol. Angry fans are petitioning for a recount! Chris deserved to win (Chris Daughtry, not me), but I'm skeptical. It has the same basic problem that the Butterfly Ballot had: maybe some American Idol voters, like Floridians, just aren't apt enough to hit the right button.

Oh no, not again. I was really hoping no more blogging about that show.

Can't someone blog "Desperate Housewives"??

Even Real Houswives? Where's all the Housewives bloggers?

Peace, Maxine

I've never voted on AI, if you dial, do you get an automated of "your vote for Chris Daughtry is accepted" or some such?

If not, then there is an argument.

But it's not a good one. the numbers are really quite clear cut. simply 1-10 last week, if you can't keep track of only 1 or 2 of 10 numbers, how do you ever call your mother?

(not you chris, the universal "you")
