Salon has an amusing "cultural discussion" of Sanjaya's presence on American Idol, featuring some prominent critics and their takes on the whole Vote for the Worst situation (most of their reactions being "why is this a cultural topic in the first place?"). I will admit to enjoying AI once they've gone down to the final 12, especially on the nights they do more pop stuff (loved Blake's takes on the Zombies and the Cure! If I ever cared enough to vote, I'd vote for him), and it gives me the opportunity to get to discuss music with my coworkers, which is usually limited to "you have a radio show? Weird." Gotta find common ground somewhere.
