Meanwhile, Miss Oklahoma lost out after expressing support for Arizona’s immigration enforcement law and celebrating states’ rights:
(Although she did manage to get all the way to second place … but then, that was probably part of the conspiracy… to get her right down to the final two and then humiliate her with a crushing loss to a heathen…)
Of course, the boss’ minions at Hot Air dutifully link to the evidence: Miss Oklahoma’s statement in support of “show me your papers.” Still, you really haven’t experienced “the crazy” until you experience it with Debbie Schlussel, who has discovered the even darker forces behind Miss Michigan’s troubling rise to power. Meanwhile, the Freepers do what they do best: type a lot of stupid, crude crap while posting hot pictures of the woman they so abhor… although you’ve got to hand it to them for being able to type at all with all that Vaseline on their fingers… (ahem)
So to review: first Arab-American Miss U.S.A.: great, narrative-altering image for America! Oklahoma Palinite who supports racial profiling? Terrible image for America going into an international competition… I don’t watch pageants, and I can’t get inside the Trumpster’s head, but I’d say picking Miss Michigan was a pretty savvy move.
UPDATE: Allahpundit once again performs his obligatory role as the winger voice of reason (such as it is):
I’m hearing arguments today that she was some sort of “affirmative action” pick, but I’m not sure why. She’s plenty, and I do mean plenty, hot enough; if the judges decided that her being Muslim was a political “plus,” I can handle that in this case because of the larger message her victory sends about cultural assimilation. A beauty pageant seems like an awfully low-cost way to promote integration.
