Sanjaya on SNL: The New Hotness of Brown

For all of my angst over Sanjaya Malakar's continued progress in American Idol, I do have to admit that it's lovely seeing tween girls across America going nuts over a brown boy. Especially when things like this are happening on our planet (Source: Sepia Mutiny). After you get depressed over that fiasco down under, see if you can find a clip of Saturday Night Live's recent parody of Sanjaya and his weeping fan base -- marking the first time, I think, that a South Asian American has ever attained that honored place in pop culture. (I had embedded the clip here from YouTube, but it seems to have disappeared from that site.)
