More On Whether America Can Handle Gay ‘Idol’

American Idol‘s faggotry got some mainstream attention this weekend.

Following male stripper David Hernandez and not-officially-out Danny Noriega’s respective sackings, CNN took some time to again address the nation’s most burning question: Is America ready for a gay American Idol.

Neither Noriega, nor Hernandez used the occasion to express any opinion one way or another (Hernandez says he was judged by his singing), openly gay former contestant Jim Verraro came out to talk about his personal fear of being outed – and how one’s private sexuality shouldn’t trump one’s talent. That’s kind of funny coming from Verraro, who wouldn’t even be on CNN if he didn’t do dudes.
