All politics aside, Miss North Carolina is much prettier than Miss California IMHO. Miss North Carolina won both the swimsuit and the evening gown competitions and, after all, this is a beauty pageant! Maybe Miss California came in second because she wasn't the best choice. However, she certainly is getting a lot of attention! She said on a TV interview "I feel like I won. I feel like I'm the real winner. I really do." That's assuming an awful lot, isn't it?
Frankly, I think Perez Hilton, the judge who asked the controversial question, is an obnoxious little queen and I'm also not a proponent of gay marriage. However, Carrie Prejean assumes she would have won the competition had she given a different answer. Personally, I think she sounded like a bimbo and didn't answer the question which was about states legalizing same-sex marriage. "Um, we live in a land that you can choose same sex marriage or opposite marriage...." Really? We do? Even the question said "Vermont recently became the 4th state..." so she apparently didn't listen very carefully to it. I thought we had 50 states, so that means we live in a land where you cannot choose same sex marriage. So, to me, she was demonstrating her ignorance, especially since this has been such a hot issue in her own state.
"God was testing my faith." As long as she's going to bring up God & Christianity, maybe she should also read the passages in the Bible about humility. She lost. Case closed.
It's ironic that I'm writing about a beauty pageant, since I view them as silly sideshows. That would have made a great question. "Do you feel that beauty contests objectify women and teach young girls that appearance is more important than intellect?" LOL Anyone who disagrees, tell me the last time someone accepted a Nobel or Pulitzer wearing a bikini.
