Taylor Hicks Wins American IdolI’ve already theorized in an earlier post why southerners dominate the American Idol competition. Now that Alabama-native Taylor Hicks has won, the winning streak continues. Here’s the money quote from the Washington Post:

Taylor Hicks, the 29-year-old Captain K ringer from Birmingham, kept up the South’s winning streak on the most popular television show in the country (source).

“Oh, I wish I was in the land of cotton, Old times there are not forgotten . . .” Okay, I’ll stop gloating. 🙂
