OK, yes. Carrie Prejean stuck to her principles. That alone is admirable. In a time of contentiousness and political correctness what she said was brave.
Or was it?
I understand that the conservatives are rallying, somewhat, around Carrie. She took a decidedly conservative view, and she's now defending herself against professional douchebag Prerez Hilton and a slew of liberal hollywood wackos.
For their part, Hollyweird is rallying around the gay marriage issue more than they are Perez himself. Still, I find it interesting that on the one hand the hollyweird crowd hates the paparazzi, critics, and bloggers, yet are all hugs and kisses when it's convenient.
For her part, Carrie has done well for herself. She doesn't seem to be the typical beauty bimbo. Vacant and void of any real talent or intellect. She's well spoken.
But, as much as I'd like to hop on the Prejean party train we're still talking about a woman who spent a lot of time preparing herself to compete in . . . a beauty contest! Again, of what real relevance is Miss America? The last several years have exposed many of these women to be nothing more than the typical attention whore looking for a quick path to fame. Carrie, clearly, has fake boobs. Unless someone knows of a medical condition she has that warranted them, I have no reason but to believe she got them to enhance the way she looked in a bikini . . . for the beauty contest.
See where I'm going?
Quick . . . who won the Miss America Pageant? I don't know, either.
What that idiot Perez did, was put miss Prejean on more headlines, in more conversations, and on more blogs than the actual winner of the pageant. Well played, Carrie. Well played.
Now, maybe she's the nicest person in the world and will use this opportunity in a positive vein. And if she does, I'll be the first in line to have my book autographed.
Until then, I can't help but be cynical.
