My favorite part of this whole study in sheer stupidity and NOT news:

“We are deeply saddened Carrie Prejean has forgotten her platform of the Special Olympics, her commitment to all Californians, and solidified her legacy as one that goes beyond the right to voice her beliefs and instead reveals her opportunistic agenda.”

Um, HELLO????? She's a 21 year old Christian school barbie with a free boob job in a Trump funded beauty pageant...sure they may be "saddened", but I cannot even begin to fathom how they could've been surprised.

Maybe I'll start a "Let's Stick It To The Bimbos" thread.

What actually gives a crap about this nonsense? Guys, stick it back in your pants and head on down to the local porn shop, where at least you'll run into honest w h o r e s! Boycott this ridiculous, nonsensical farce of beauty pageants.

Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeit! These pageants are an insult to honest thought in the heads of both genders.

On a more serious note: Gay men can judge female beauty just fine, thank you. If anything, there's an advantage to having a gay guy there because you know he's not going to be let his little head overrule his big head.

If you're saying that you think gay men can't judge female beauty because they're not sexually aroused by women, than that would mean that straight women should be banned from judging too.
I think the idiot that screwed up this pageant has proven that gay men should not be allowed to judge beauty pageants. He found a way to get his "political" beliefs involved for his own personal reasons and was wrong for that.

How is it "political" when he can't get married to the one that he loves? It was more like a dagger to his head when prejean answered the question so clumsily. there's such a thing as answering a question with clarity and finesse; she was way off on that one.

I'm as straight as they come and it pissed me off.

I have several close friends who have wanted to get married for a long while. One couple has been together for fourteen years, and they BELONG together. They had made plans to go to California last year to get married before the election made it impossible (one of them grew up in San Francisco).

It's about love and comittment, but also about civil, human, and legal rights.

I mean, if she's upset by the controversy over it, why not just say "no comment" about it? Same w/Hilton.
In other words 'sit down and shut up.
She was going to win that title. She's mad and rightly so.
And alot of regular people are mad right along with her.
See, most regular people don't like bullies and what they do.
I suspect that many will be angry much longer then the
15 min. you allow.
By the way. This use of Andy's 15 has had it's 15.
Think of something else. Your boring me.

No kidding. That little fairy didnt like her answer so he did what all little girls would do...throw a tanrum. It wasnt a bad answer. She never said she didnt think they shouldnt be allowed to marry (that seems to have changed now, which isnt good for her publicity, but originally she answered it fine) She just said that, personally, she believes it is man + woman.

Sounds to me like he's just saying Perez shouldnt judge. And I agree. He's too emotional. He cant control himself and do his job. What other judges have you seen that didnt like an answer so they went online and called the girl a ***** and a ****?
