Prediction: Miss California will get a show on Fox News
She stood down Perez Hilton, stammered her support for "opposite marriage," and lost the crown. And yet, to a Fox News exec, she's pretty, she's conservative on family values (maybe she could do a national traditional marriage tour with Rudy Giuliani ... and his three wives, including his ... cousin ... and his wife Judy's ... other husband??? ... ahem...) and she's blonde. Done deal.

Miss California, Carrie Prejean, previously famous for maybe, possibly dating our favorite, medaled-down pot-head, Michael Phelps, is in a full-on girl fight with Perez, who broke all prior pageant protocol by being a former judge who refers to a contestant a "dumb bitch," and well on her way to her own show on Fox, which is already distributing the talking point that she lost the Miss USA pageant over her opposition to gay marriage. The controversy unfolded as follows:

Prejean picked celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, who is openly gay and calls himself 'queen of all media'.

Hilton asked her: 'Vermont recently became the fourth state to legalise same-sex marriage. Do you think every state should follow suit. Why or why not?'

Prejean paused for a moment before replying: 'Well, I think it’s great that Americans are able to choose one or the other. We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage.'

She continued: 'And you know what, in my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman.

'No offence to anybody out there, but that’s how I was raised and that’s how I think it should be - between a man and a woman. Thank you very much.'
No, thank YOU very much. ... And then Perez:
... went on to describe Prejean as having 'half a brain' and said he would have stormed onto the stage and ripped off her tiara if she had won.
Which he followed by...
In an expletive-laced online video blog, the gay self-proclaimed “Queen of All Media” said after the telecast that Prejean should have just avoided the question. “She lost not because she doesn’t believe in gay marriage, she lost because she’s a dumb (expletive)..."
The expletive in question was "bitch." (Ahem.) At least for a time...

So ... question ... what was the Miss USA pageant thinking, hiring a madcap entertainment blogger who named himself after Paris Hilton and styles himself the "Queen of All Media" as a judge in the first place? Is this an admission that the only people who watch these silly pageants anymore are 90-year-olds, gay men, creeepy pageant moms and entertainment bloggers? Even then, is it ever appropriate for a judge to call a pageant contestant a bitch ... and worse ... even if he's mad at her over gay marriage? Here's the worse. It starts with "C" ...

Paris Hilton just lost this fight. Throwing out the c-word ends the conversation, and makes Ms. Prejean look reasonable by comparison, on-stage stammering aside. Meanwhile, Fox News executives await Ms. PreJean's answer...
