At Least Blame The Right Thing

All week long, I have been avoiding the discussion of the Miss USA debacle because, quite frankly, I just don't care. Really. But that doesn't mean I have no opinion. And here it is: Miss California, you didn't lose the pageant because your answer upset Perez Hilton. You lost because your answer was convoluted and nonsensical.

And, you lost because of these earrings!

Sweetheart, they are hideous.

And can we talk for a second about gracious losing? Stop doing interviews where you claim the only reason you lost was because of your answer. Hello?!? That's why they ask the questions! To weed out the ones who don't quite measure up. Why not say something like "The new Miss USA is a great choice. She will be a terrific ambassador for the organization."

Lie if you must. You're a pageant veteran after all. But stop sounding all sour grapes about the whole thing. You sound like you're being interviewed right before 4th period English class at Pretty Pretty Princess Middle School.

If I were the new Miss USA, I'd track California down and throw Donald Trump's combover at her.

Thus the reason only dingbats are in pageants.


Seriously I was in pageants growing up and as I got older I realized how uneducated some of those women sound.


And really why doesn't The Donald take care of that hair?

Really. That answer was an insult to Californians. Anybody spewing sour grapes usually gets squished after a short while.
