THE NEXT LOGICAL REALITY SHOW
I read a poll on MSNBC that 2/3 of Americans surveyed support the idea of televising executions. Over a fifth said they'd pay to watch Osama bin Laden get fried and 11% would do so for Saddam Hussein.

Let me get this straight: a comfortable majority of Americans (polled) believe that state-sponsored and -implemented murder being televised is a grand notion but that the idea of Adam and Steve saying "I do" to each other is abhorrent and a slap in the face to decent civilization. And don't even mention Janet Jackson's nipple.

"...with liberty and justice for all... er, some, provided it's not too unpopular."
