As our nation struggles with its worst recession in decades, a beauty pageant runner-up, who most Americans probably never heard of three weeks ago, is attracting national headlines.
Such seems absurd given the low interest in these events let alone the improbability of anyone caring about the views expressed by the contestants during the question and answer phase.
Let’s face it: people tuning in to watch such a spectacle aren’t doing so to get a tutorial on current events and pressing issues of the day.
Defying such conventional wisdom though is Miss California, aka Carrie Prejean, who ever since honestly answering Perez Hilton’s gotcha question about same-sex marriage at April 19’s Miss USA pageant has been the subject of over 800 news stories, most of them filled with hatred for this unlikely tragic figure.
The newest attacks include a supposedly salacious picture of the model wearing only pink panties. Although this is a rear view with her arms covering enough of her breasts to avoid a Janet Jackson wardrobe malfunction and subsequent scrutiny by the FCC, the Left have seized on it claiming she’s a hypocrite to pose so scantily-clad.
The sad thing is this all falls on Donald Trump's shoulders tomorrow to strip her of her title or not. If he did this would be a huge victory for the gays.The picture of her is very tame and Miss Rhode Islans actually did a spread for Maxim Mag and nothings being said about her.Trump's a pretty liberal guy and I'm sure he isn't the least bit offended by Miss Cal. pics but I don't know whether he's a gay sympathizer or not.The most sickening aspect of all this is that Perez Hilton person is going to work at a college as a counselor when he can't even control his own behavior.
It is a shame in the United States of America that an opinion can not be given that the press and the various offended organizations don't make a mountain out of a mole hill. She has a right to believe what she believes
