Kat McPhee is Going Down, and Someone is Going to Win the Republican Nomination for the 1st CD

I'm certain there are as many Americans interested in the 1st Congressional District of Idaho as there are Americans who voted in tonight's Idol standoff.

At least we all know who is going to win that title tomorrow.

In the meantime, the 1st CD is a toss-up, but you can track the results here. Make your predictions if you like. It's Sorenson or Sali, though Johnson may be a surprise contender.

UPDATE: It's 11:15 and 48% of precincts in the First District are reporting. It's close, but Sali is leading. Too early to call. Luna and Smylie are neck and neck in the race for Public Instruction.

UPDATE: Wasden is spanking Gabbert. With 52% of precincts reporting, Sali's lead grows. Brandt isn't doing well at all. Too bad. Nice guy.

UPDATE: Results haven't updated in a while. Sali still leads, but essentially half the district's votes have yet to be reported! Luna and Smylie are so close: with 65% of precincts reporting, Smylie is leading by 1,000 votes.

FINAL UPDATE: 80% of precincts in the 1st CD are reporting, and Sali has a 3,000+ vote lead over Keith Johnson and Sheila Sorenson, who are only a hundred votes apart. Vasquez is next, but still far behind, and Brandt and Semanko barely register. Luna is going to lose to Smylie. That's not good at all. Hurray for Bill!

OOPS, JUST KIDDING, ANOTHER UPDATE: The Idaho Statesman is reporting that Tom Luna edged Steve Smylie out by fewer than 900 votes. Wowzers.

You know what's so ridiculous about all of this? Not only was Kat's last song itself five times worse than the one they wrote for Taylor, but their performances were exactly the same caliber for each. Simon Cowell, "if I'm being honest," should have called a tie after three rounds.

Yeah, that was my thought. Taylor showed that he doesn't have much range, though I suspect he has more talent than the Idol format allows the viewer to see.

I saw for the first time that Kat has some real talent, too. But again, Idol is about creating pop stars like Kelly Clarkson, not about mining talent that appeals to a more limited audience.

We want Britney not Bonnie.

I can't wait for the McPhee / DiGarmo "Sucky Singers '06" tour!
