Miss America

First, you know you're in trouble when a douchebag like Perez Hilton is a judge. More than that, though, isn't Perez unqualified to be a judge at a woman's beauty contest?

Whatever, it would seem Carrie Prejean lost her chance to become the next Miss America after sharing her honest opinion about gay marriage in a question from Perez Hilton. I don't have the exact quote, but the Miss America wannabe essentially answered that she didn't believe in gay marriage. Though one of the finalist, she lost. It's speculated she may have won had it not been for her answer. Hilton said afterward:

“She gave the worst answer in pageant history. She lost because she’s a dumb b—-, okay?”

A couple of thoughts.

First, I highly doubt douchebag Hiton has followed every pageant to know that Carrie gave the worst answer in history. No, it's simply that she gave an answer he didn't like. I thought the reasoning behind the questions was simply to see the contestant think on their feet. To come up with a quick response and word it intelligently. It goes toward poise. Hilton came out (pun intended) and admitted bias.

Another example of the more accepting, broader minded left.

Second, all that said . . . is the Miss America pageant relevant anymore? I mean, it's become a joke, and Perez Hilton being a judge is evidence of that. I respect Carrie for sticking to her principles but . . . come on, she's strutting around with her fake boobs, trying to look all pretty and perfect. Bleech! I have a low opinion of anyone participating in these pageants to begin with.

And now, it's become tabloid fodder.
