image for RepoMan, New American Idol!
Even King David has had a reckoning with the RepoMan...

In an amazing development on hit show, American Idol, all leading contestants were rejected in favor of an astounding call in campaign for RepoMan.

As the US economy retracts, recesses and depresses, the new American idol is not the rock star or the CEO. It's the guy or gal or gets all the stuff when the American losers can't pay the bills.

Everyone seems to want to be in repossessions whether they are showing up at the door of your usual poor deadbeat or an Iraq War widow with three kids.

RepoMan has higher ratings and sales than Iron Man who has been outsourced to the iron mines of Borat's Kazakhstan. More macho than the inner city drug dealer and more juice than even Halliburton, the RepoMan has captured the imagination of America.

Business editor for the Wall to Wall Street Journal, Muneez Mai-Midlnaim tried to explain the phenomenon: "If it is true that the one who dies with the most toys wins, then in Bush's Greater Depression America, RepoMan rules!"
