I mentioned last week that we should most likely disregard or at least not attach much significance to comments or advice from anyone who wears or has recently worn a bikini and high heels.
The recent flap over Miss California’s Carrie Prejean’s answer to a question from pageant judge and celebrity gossip blogger Mario Lavandeira (aka Perez Hilton), long known for his unethical journalistic practices and Ms. Prejean’s subsequent submission to the extreme evangelical right-wing of the GOP, via multiple TV appearances and this excerpt from a radio interview with God’s own swift sword, James Dobson…
I felt as though Satan was trying to tempt me in asking me this question. And then God was in my head and in my heart saying, “Do not compromise this. You need to stand up for me and you need to share with all these people . . . you need to witness to them and you need to show that you’re not willing to compromise that for this title of Miss USA. And I knew right here that it wasn’t about winning. It was about being true to my convictions.”
…culminates today in a judgment by the uber-sagacious Donald Trump. It also provoked cacophonous media coverage, including a lengthy, critical response from the pageant’s director. Pageant officials have complained that Ms. Prejean violated her contract by posing “topless,” however Miss California contests their allegations. She claims that the most revealing were in fact, “Photo-shopped” by an unscrupulous photographer in an overt attempt to defame her.
As I type this post, people all over the planet starve to death, are denied basic health care, are being kidnapped, tortured, raped and murdered… “Que sera, sera…”
CNN is carrying it LIVE! (Goose-bumps!) I tremble with anticipation for the Donald’s edict
The Donald Rules! Miss California prevails, thanking God for His intervention in pursuit of her duties as Miss California and support of “opposite marriage!”
