The lowercase "R" is an orthodox jew

I'm not exaggerating when I say that every blogger has posted something about Ashlee Simpson's lip sync fiasco on Saturday Night Live this past week.

I've read a lot of comments that say "I hope Simpson's gaffe results in the end of her dubious career."

First of all, many pop stars have lip synched or sung over themselves on Saturday Night Live before.

Secondly, prior to her appearance on Saturday Night Live, Ashlee Simpson was already culturally irrelevant. The saturation of blogs with Simpson-related posts only serves to give her more publicity.

Negative publicity is still publicity. People started caring about Jessica Simpson only after she let cameras film her being a dumb blond. Bill O'Reilly's sex scandal actually increased the ratings of his show. Also, consider the Paris Hilton sex tape. That which did not kill her only made her (sadly) more popular.
