The end is nigh

This says so much about the bizarre underbelly of American pop culture, simultaneously evoking as it does laughter, pity, sadness, and shame: the exploitation by entertainment hucksters; the self-exploitation by the girl; and our willingness to laugh and clap.

If I was a midget, I honestly don't know if watching Mini-Brit would make me laugh or cry. Then again, I'd feel proud that she looked better than the real Brit at the MTV Awards.
