President Michele Bachmann? Quite Possible, According to Recent GOP Presidential Polls

I must admit, before the recent CNN GOP Debate, I hadn’t given Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann much thought in the 2012 race.  That isn’t to say that I thought she was incapable, I just didn’t really think she could overcome her lack of recognition and previous characterizations as being on the fringe.  That “fringe candidate” reputation couldn’t have been any less evident during the recent debate, where Bachmann arguably out-did proverbial front-runner Mitt Romney.

And we weren’t the only people who picked up on this; Bachmann’s support surged to 16% among Republican voters. Sure, that’s still 14% points Romney, but is much higher than the 3% she registered prior to the debate.  If Bachmann continues impressing in public appearances and avoids any major gaffes, she has a great set-up to take the Republican field by storm.  Additionally, more answers like her well-thought out answer to a question on the make-up of the Tea Party will help draw in skeptical independent voters that will be key to winning the general election in 2012.

Keep an eye on this one.

Who Won the CNN GOP Debate? You Decide.

I’m going to avoid my usual rant on CNN and the lack of tough questions asked during tonight’s GOP debate and instead try to focus on what was actually covered during the 2-hour debate.  Unfortunately, that brings up another problem because, once again, I don’t see any real eye-popping potential among the seven featured in the debate. Romney and Bachmann showed the most “presidentiality” among the group, with Paul (as expected) giving the most straight-forward, honest answers.  Cain did little to further himself tonight, with Gingrich, Pawlenty, and Santorum coming across as boring as ever.

What did you think of tonight’s debate? Who impressed you and who let you down?  Does Bachmann have what it takes now that her run is official?

American Idol Season 10 Top 12 Finalist Power Ranking: Pia Toscano, Casey Abrams Move Up, Thia Megia, Lauren Alaina Begin to Sleep

After last week’s massive fail of an episode, a few front runners now find themselves scooting down a few notches on my Finalist Power Ranking.  We haven’t really had any real game-changers this year (other than that missed opportunity with Kendra… yeah, I’m STILL bitter), so the long-term predictions haven’t changed much.  Here’s a look at how the contestants stack up going into week two of finals:

  1. Scotty McCreery- Scotty stuck with what he knows during his Top 13 performance of Garth Brooks’ “The River”, but how much more material that he “knows” does he have up his sleeve? He’s going to have to have an Idol Moment to keep his momentum going, but it’s not impossible.  Seriously though, has there ever been a contestant with SOOOOO much momentum who never had any kind of defining moment?  I mean, Babylockthemdoors can only be so interesting after 3 or 4 renditions. (No Change)
  2. Pia Toscano- Despite not taking my advice and singing a song by one of the Big 3 (don’t let it happen, Peez), Pia was able to build her momentum by offering up a version of “All By Myself” that rivaled the version of Celine herself.  Like Scotty, however, Pia is going to have to mix it up to stick around past the top 3 or 4.  On paper, however, she’s unstoppable. (UP 1)
  3. Casey Abrams- Casey must have read last week’s power ranking because he certainly stepped up the vocal quality of his performance this week.  Casey sounded, dare I say it, really good on his cover of “With a Little Help From my Friends”, infusing his signature soul and cool as a cucumber personality into every second of the minute-forty set.  My only concern with Casey is health.. poor guy had ulcerative colitis…. yeeeesh. (UP 1)
  4. Lauren Alaina- I knew it was only a matter of time before Lauren, or the “Teflon Cowbelle” as I like to call her, started to lose her scratch resistant coating.  Her version of “Any Man of Mine” lacked the inventive qualities of the version by last season’s Siobhan Magnus, Princess of Barnstable, and her personality during her post-performance critique was more off-putting than Randy in a unitard.  To make it as far as she’s capable in the competition, she’s going to have to step it up vocally and stop being so whiny when she’s spoken to. (Down 2)
  5. James Durbin- It’s really hard for me to admit that I’m wrong, but I really missed the boat on James Durbin.  His Top 13 take on “Maybe I’m Amazed” was easily one of the best of the night, setting him up for the perfect Idol trajectory: catch on around the Top 10 and then make a clean sprint to the finish.  He, like so many this season, are going to have to overcome real personality issues to conquer the Idol stage, but it’s been done before.  Just look at Stank-Eye McPhee. (No Change)
  6. Stefano Langone- Ok, so his version of Stevie Wonder’s “Lately” came complete with a $0.99 Midi-tone backing track that was played through a Moto Razr positioned next to Ryan’s mic.  Abysmal arrangement aside, Stefano showed some more soulful and passionate singerizing, giving him one of the largest boosts of the week on the Power Ranking chart.  Stefano was also helped out by the general suckage of the bottom half of the finalists, but it was still a good week for people named Stefano. (UP 3)
  7. Naima Adedapo- Having near-mint pitch is a key factor to success on Idol, but those who Reggae during their songs are generally exempt from this requirement.  Naima’s take on Rihanna’s “Umbrella” showed not only a gutsiness to America’s favorite former groundskeeper, but also a pretty keen sense of what’s relevant in today’s music scene.  Naima did exactly what she needed to do last week by showing voters that she’s comfortable as a performer and capable of more than just Donnie Hathaway ballads. (Up 4)
  8. Paul McDonald- By all accounts, Paul’s Idol trajectory is going to be that of the token contestant who peaks in Hollywood Week and rides that momentum until the utter goes dry.   For Paul, said utter is probably leaking out its last few drops of fame juice.  Lovable Paul needs another “Blackbird” moment if he’s going to stick around much longer. (Down 1)
  9. Jacob Lusk- Okay, so last week I likened Haley Reinhart’s singing demeanor to  that of someone who was giving birth to a cactus.  In fairness to the lovely Haley, she passed her cactus on to Jacob, who embraces that spiny offspring with every fiber of his being.  Jacob’s atonal “I Believe I Can Fly” was arguable the night’s worst performance, filled with off-key screeches and a heaping helping of cheese.  He needs to seriously reign it in and re-evaluate if he wants to have a fruitful American Idol berth. (Down 3)
  10. Haley Reinhart- Paying her respects to my girl and fellow homewrecker LeAnn Rimes by singing her inaugural hit “Blue” was a great way for Haley to earn a place in my heart.  Her penchant for making strange faces during critiques is, similarly, very endearing.  But Haley needs to have a wow moment to put herself back to her Hollywood week level of acclaim.  With right song, Haley could have a Katelyn Epperly/”The Scientist” moment. (No Change)
  11. Thia Magia- Ole Thia-bot, your star is fading faster than a PowerPoint slide transition turned on full blast.  Like Lauren, Thia had a very uncomfortable and anti-humble interaction with the judges post-performance, and her sense of entitlement is already making me have gas.  Personality aside, her rendition of “Smile” was not good, and had it not been for Jacob and his technicolored off note, Thia would be the proud owner of the night’s worst performance. (Down 3)
  12. Karen Rodriguez- Everytime I see Karen, I go through a portal to an alternate universe set in the late 80s/early 90s and find myself on the set of a family variety show called “Los Loco Amigas” (The Crazy Girl Friends).  Karen is, of course, the show’s host; busting out into Latin-flavored versions of songs that are already sung in Spanish, like the hat dance, feliz navidad, and yo quiero Taco Bell.  She also wheres horrible smocks that she designed herself.  When I travel back to the universe we’re currently living in, I realize how disgusting Karen’s forced Latina-pride is.  Either way, Mexican variety shows are never a good idea. (No Change)

American Top 13 Elimination: Who Went Home? Ashthon Jones!

Well, just as I said last night, America gave the old heave-ho to Ashthon Jones for the second time in a week’s time frame.  Home girl can sing, but if she wants to be successful on a show like American Idol, she’s going to have to tone down the diva and turn up the pitch-perfection.  Here’s to hoping Ashthon finds her niche singing jingles for commercials that are set in middle-American suburbia in the mid 1960s.  There’s certainly a market for that.

American Idol Season 10 Top 13 Recap & Review: Pia Toscano, Naima Adedapo, James Durbin Soar

Where to begin, where to begin..  Tonight was lame.  On several levels.  Just two weeks ago I was pumped about this season (Then again, that was when Kendra Chantelle and Rachel Zevita were on my t.v. screen.. COME BACK), and now I’m feeling about the same level of enthusiasm I felt last year.  One thing is for certain though, Ta-Ta-Nayshus (aka Ta-Tynisa) and her atonal voice were SORELY missed tonight.

The Great

With exception of this season’s Los Angeles audition show, there has never been an episode of Idol completely devoid of even a single bright spot.  Tonight, Pia Toscano once again shone like a candle in the dark (No Ashthon, just no. Never sing again.) with her rafter-raising rendition of “All By Myself”.  One note about Pia: she struggles with notes that should be easy for someone with such a range.  It’s quite perplexing.  Also, I wish she had more personality.  She’s super humble, but I need someone with a little FIYAHH, like….. Naima Adedapo. Naimi and her reggaed-up self channeled a little Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland fame (Better not hate on my JenNet) on her cover of “Umbrella”.  The vocals were far from perfect, but Naimi had enough personality left to fill the ever-increasing personality void left by emotion black hole THIA MAFREAKINGEA (see below). Casey Abrams gave another romping performance of “With a Little Help From My Friends”.  Casey has so much personality.  It’s so nice to know that some contestants still have fun. Finally, I was surprised my lack of disdain (still can’t give him credit where it’s due) for Adam Lambert 2.0 James Durbin. His rendition of “Maybe I’m Amazed” wasn’t screamy, but was rather filled with on-pitch notes, a first for Mr. Lambert-Durbin.  He’s still a douche, as noted by his self-pimping following the judges’ critiques, but his singing is becoming less threatening.

The Good

Oddly enough, all 3 of tonight’s good singers sang songs by country singers, and one even sub-yodelled.  Bringing that Nashville influence to the big Idol stage.  When well the madness stop?  Scotty McCreery predictably pulled out a song from Ole Garth’s hat, and sang it well but without making it his own.  I don’t really care about contestants making it their own, but the judges have such a double standard on the issue.  Randy loves to tell people they “didn’t bring anything new to it” while at the same time telling Scotty “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”. I realize pea-brained Randy was probably too excited about using a funny country cliche on a funny country cliche contestant to think about whether it made sense, but still.  Don’t they have proofreaders for that stuff?  Speaking of proofreaders, where was the person in charge of proofreading Lauren Alaina’s attitude after singing “Any Man of Mine”?  I’ve never someone (Besides Thia-bot) take such mild criticism so strongly.  Makes dislike Lauren and her stage-mom even more.  In her defense, however, the judges gave praise to performances FAR crappier than Lauren’s.  Finally, we have Haley Reinhart, reminding me more and more of my wonderful Megan Caw-Caw every day.  Haley sang “Blue” by LeAnn Rimes and gave us a preview of that fabled yodel we’ve heard so much about.  Haley sound nice during most of the song, but I need her to step it up so she can stick around for a while.  The faces she makes during critiques are priceless.

The Okay

Why does Ryan feel the need to say Stefano with an accent? Every. Time.  I mean, I can understand being timid about saying a goofy name like Stefano (I mean, my name is ANGELICA), but there are other ways to cope with embarrassment.  Whatever.  Anyway, Stefano Langone remixed “Lately” by Stevie Wonder so that it would fit the Tron soundtrack.. with mixed results.  He’s got an awesome voice, but it really only shines on singers’ songs, like last week’s “I Need You Now”.  Similarly, Ole McDonald Paul has that super cool voice that I love, but his song choices have not been flattering for his limited instrument.  I would hate to see him and his super-white smile go, but I feel that it’s imminent in the coming weeks.

The Bad

I’m sorry, but I have nothing good to say about Jacob Lusk. He’s ridiculous, his facial expressions are absurd, and his singing, while rangey, has a weird, unpleasant tone.  Plus, he sang R. Kelly.  And he pulled out the black choir already.. why should I keep watching this season if we’ve already pulled out the black choir?  Similarly, I will never understand Karen Rodriguez, nor will I understand what made America vote for her.  She’s so obviously pandering to the Latina voters with her never-ending mentions of Selena and Latina blood.  I don’t wanna hear about nobody’s blood while I’m watching prime-time television!  Another thing I don’t want to see: a 15 year old with a bit** face better than mine.  Thia Megia better step back.  Her rendition of “Smile” went nowhere and came from nowhere.  She, like Lauren, has no ability to take criticism.  I am glad to see that she’s mostly dropped that stupid fake accent she used to sing with.  That, my friends, was ANNOYING.

The GOD AWFUL

Ashthon Jones. Everything about you is nauseating.  For starters, what’s the function of the “h” after the “t” in Ashthon?  Is that like an artistic mark? Like Cher? Or Seal?  Secondly, what’s up with your singing?  Maybe I’m just bitter that the judges gave you a wild card instead of Kendra.  Or maybe not.  Yeah, let’s go with maybe not.

What did you think about tonight’s show?  Who was your favorite?  Leave a comment below or send an e-mail to theconservativejournal@gmail.com.  Don’t forget to bookmark The Conservative Journal and sign up for the RSS Feed and the daily e-mail newsletter.

American Idol Season 10 Top 13 Finalist Power Rankings: Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina, and Pia Toscana Lead the Pack

Read My recap of tonight’s Top 13 show by clicking HERE.

With Rick back, I’m back too!  This season of Idol doesn’t suck, so maybe I’ll be able to stick around and finish it out.  I’m not too hopeful, but we’ll see.

After a drama-filled Wild Card episode last week, the remaining Idol will sing for America’s favor tonight on the Top 13 performance show.  The theme is “Songs from artists that inspired you”.. so basically anything goes.  I hate stupid themes.  This is not my personal favorite list, but rather a measurement of who’s hot and who shouldn’t even try.  Anywayyyyy…

  1. Scotty McCreery- Despite only knowing one song and having the range of an Ospry (that’s a large flightless bird. DUH), Scotty is obnoxiously popular with stupid tweeny-boppers who shouldn’t be allowed to stay up late enough to vote anyway.  I mean, what’s wrong with America’s parental units?  Scotty will likely fade as the limit of his talent becomes more obvious, but for now, he’s riding high.
  2. Lauren Alaina- Lauren, orOMG LOOK AT ME LAUREN ALAINA, as I like to call her, has been blessed with the love and affection of Idol’s powers-that-be.  She can do no wrong at this point, mostly just because the producers would never allow that to make it on tv.  Regardless, she’s a good singer and her personality is big enough to have it’s own gravitational field, so of course America loves her.  America LOVES obnoxious southerners.
  3. Pia Toscano- So this Jersey girl did nothing for me until she lashed into “I’ll Stand By You” with such force that even my cold heart warmed just a little.  However, Pia seems to have a penchant for picking popular, previously performed (like that consonance?) Idol tunes, which could get hopelessly annoying in later weeks.  It’s going to be important for her NOT to sing Celine, Mariah, Whitney, or any other overrated “music goddess”.
  4. Casey Abrams- Okay, so his voice is not outstanding.. his personality more than makes up for it.  Casey is my personal favorite in that he brings something new to the stage every time he takes it, and American Idol rarely produces contestants who does that.  At the same time, though, America is stupid and only supports the likes of OMG LOOK AT ME LAUREN ALAINA.  Casey’s cool and clever self is doing just fine now, but when pitted up against the 3 above him, he stands no chance.
  5. James Durbin- James proved last week that he hasn’t quite as terrible and obnoxious as Hollywood Week made him out to be, but American Idol viewers won’t take a subpar Adam Lambert impersonator lightly.  He’s going to have to continue to distance himself and find a new niche to make it all the way.
  6. Jacob Lusk- Okay, so he looks like giving birth while he sings, American Idol needs some good ole fashioned gospel soul!  Like OMG ITS LAUREN ALAINA, Jacob has an in-your-face performance style and personality, which America loves.  He’ll probably go much farther on the show than his contemporary music career will after the show.
  7. Paul McDonald- America loves his quirkiness and BLARING WHITE TEETH, but when it boils down to it, Paul doesn’t have that LOOK AT ME personality (see above), nor the ability to travel very far from his baseline voice. Still, Paul could very well have the trajectory of someone like Jason Castro, a subtle singer with a subtle personality who made it through based on his appeal with the tweeny-bops.
  8. Thia Megia- Good ole Thia-bot.  She has ZERO personality and her voice isn’t anything to gawk at, but she’s got the benefit of being Asian and being 15 (America LOVES it when Ryan Seacrest reminds everyone that SHE’s ONLY 15!!!@#!!!@#!@!).  Her performance last week was passable, so she’s got positive momentum into this week.
  9. Stefano Langone- Stefano has a strong, soulful voice, and Amerkur just eats that up.  At the same time, he’s marketable and easy on the eyes, so he has that going for him too.  However, something obviously hasn’t clicked with America, as he was put into the top 13 as a wild card pick.  He’ll have to give another performance on par with his “I Need You Now” during the wild card show to make a lasting impression.
  10. Haley Reinhart- If Jacob Lusk sings like he’s giving birth, Haley Reinhart sings like she’s giving birth to a cactus.  Growly McGrowlerpants has a BIG OLE VOICE (as Randy so eloquently reminds us weekly), but I’m not sure that she really knows how to use it just yet.  Her misinterpretation of Alicia Keys “Fallin” last week (Haley is a hot bi***, but “Fallin” is an emotional pain song, NOT a baby-maker) shows that she may not be as artistically savvy as she needs to be.
  11. Naimi Adedapo- Her last impressive performance for me was her first audition, as every subsequent attempt has been marred by misplaced notes and strange dancing.  Naimi has likability on her side though, and sometimes that means more than anything (ahem, Taylor Hicks).
  12. Karen Rodriguez?- Yeah, I’m still really not sure how this one slipped into the Top 10.  She sang a drab Mariah Carey Velveeta-fest and it was mediocre at best.  Her pandering to the Spaniards is going to get real old, real fast, too.  I’d be surprised to see her hang around very long, as I imagine she’ll get lost in the shuffle.
  13. Ashthon Jones- Annoying divas are soooooo 8 seasons ago.  Ashthon (what’s up with that random ‘h’?) didn’t make it into the fan-voted Top 10 with good reason.  She’s the biggest diva we’ve seen since J-HUD, only she doesn’t have the goods to back the tude up.  Her rendition of “And I Am Telling You” was like Vonzell Solomon-lite, which in food terms is like Iceberg lettuce-lite.  She’ll be gone shortly unless she starts to impress.

Hate Mail: No One’s Happier We’re Back Than the Haters

When you return somewhere you haven’t been in a while, the people you expect to be most excited to see you are those who like you the most.. right?  WRONG.  We let the internet know we were back just a few days ago and so far the response has been.. well.. full of hate.  Here are the staff favorites so far:

Blondie342 (not kidding) likes to throw around stereotypes:

I’m not surprised it’s been so long since you posted, you you have probably been trying to learn some more words to say since your a stupid conservative.

Wait… am I reading that correctly… your username is…. Blondie?

Lydia B. overestimates the reach of our influence:

You better make sure all of the stuff you post is true this time around…. you often post inaccuracies and that could lead to- as Angel calls it- a second amendment killing spree.

Lydia, I don’t recall the “Angel” who recommended a killing spree.  I do, however, remember and “Angle” who joked about “second amendment remedies”.  Is that the point you were trying to make?  I think so.

We aim to please ya, Bill O.:

So when are you unreliable bast**** going to post that Best of 2010 that I voted so diligently for? It can’t be hard to copy down results.

Sorry for the hold-up Bill.  Even though you hate us, I won’t say anything snarky to you because we did slip up there.

Tina J. probably didn’t take many math courses in college:

Why do you even bother with The Conservative Journal?  There’s no point in writing a blog for 3 people: you, your mommy, and your dog.  I would recommend finding another hobby/job.  You just don’t have the touch.

Tina, I have to ask, how did you find The Conservative Journal with such a limited readership?  That must have taken a lot of work.  Or maybe you ARE my “mommy”?  Her name is Cindy… that’s almost like Tina!

Richard D. questions our sincerity, well-being, personal drive, and just about everything else:

Rick, do you like blogging?  I don’t think you do.  I worry about your lack of posts over the past 2 months.  Is all well?  Is your family okay?  If so, you have no excuse not to post all of the time.  Do you like posting all the time?  Do you plan to start again?  Do you need any help? It makes me wonder if you really care at all.  Do you care at all? Huh? Do You?

Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Maybe.  No, not from you. Yes. Yes. Yes.

IIoni obviously doesn’t know anything about Glenn Beck, whom she hates:

You and Glenn Beck need get over yourselves and your loveeee of George Bush.he’s not a good president and only fools would think that!  Barak Obama is the best president of ever!!!!!

Aside from the obvious mistakes in the wording, IIoni, Glenn Beck doesn’t like George Bush anymore than you do.  For that matter, I don’t really even like him as a president.  Check yourself.

And finally, David W. is ever on the prowl:
