I’m Somewhat Ashamed: I Voted for Sanjaya

sanjaya.jpgCan't say that I've watched even one minute of American Idol in my life, but like a little schoolgirl I voted last night for Sanjaya. Not just once, either. I voted like 15 times. I know...Weird, right?

I couldn't help myself. Howard Stern made me do it. What's that you say? How did Howard make me do it? He made it soooo easy. When I was in my car, I had Howard 100 tuned in and guess what kept flashing across the screen? The words "Vote for Sanjaya" and the number to call. I called. And called. And called. I kept looking around at the stop lights wondering if the folks next to me knew what I was doing.

Stern's crew have really figured out how to leverage the device to their benefit. There's a few million of those things around the country and more than a handful were probably tuned in to Howard. They knew that, and figured it was a great way to incent folks to act. I'm sure that this is just the first way in which they'll use the technology. Watch what they'll do during the presidential elections. I bet Howard endorses someone and they flash voting reminders across the screen. What else could they use the screen for? Any ideas?

If I'm in the car next week, I'm more than a little embarrassed to say that I'll probably vote for Sanjaya again. When election day comes around, who knows what I'll do!
