American Idol Pre-Game Post

Lima Sahar is the first female contestant to make it to the top three on Afghanistan's version of American Idol, called Afghan Star. She was voted off last week. Critics had protested her singing in public in the Muslim country. They even took their complaints to the president.

Can you imagine calling up George W. Bush? "Yeah, Hello Mr. President, I know you're busy with the Bear Stearns buyout and the pending economic doom, but could you do something about the number of male contestants with long hair? Also, could you look into the rampant use of teeth whiteners? Seriously, focus on the fixable domestic problems..."

I had no idea there was an Afgan Idol.
I am so glad I live in america, I can not fathom as a woman, not being able to sing in public (If I could sing)or even people protesting such a thing. (Believe if I chose to sing in public there would be protest, but not because I have woman parts, (i.e. a vagina!)
