Prejean’s “Bigger Crown” Still a Crowd Pleaser

Timothy Kincaid

September 21st, 2009

Miss USACarrie Prejean, former Miss California, was at hand to rally the troops at the far-right Values Voter Summit this weekend. She really should be thankful that the Miss California Pageant removed her from her position, because there’s no way that an organization that seeks to appeal to pageant viewers would ever let a reigning representative get anywhere near that collection of extremist partisans.

Ready with a quick tear, Prejean told how she went from a sure thing winner (though the points were not going her way) to being a big loser. Although it appeared to those living outside her head that she was prattling on incoherently about “opposite marriage”, on the inside she was seeing visions from God.

“As I saw my goals and aspirations flash by me, I knew God had a plan for me… God chose me for that moment. He knew I was strong enough to get through all the junk that I have been through.”

My recollection of the events suggests that this “plan” wasn’t all that evident right away. It didn’t exactly materialize until Maggie Gallagher got Carrie in her grip. But perhaps it’s true; Carrie’s thought process has always proven elusive.

And then, victim that she is, Prejean whipped out her catch phrase, one that was sure to appeal to biblical literalists who can’t wait to be royalty in heaven (though they are not really very specific about who gets to be peasants and serfs).

“Even though I didn\’t win the crown that night,” said Prejean, tearing up, “I know the Lord has so much of a bigger crown in heaven for me.”

And who am I to tell her she’s wrong. After all, the Lord did have much bigger boobs for her down at her plastic surgeon’s.

What a pathetic woman. She’s gone from whoring out her body to crowds of cheering men to whoring out her story to crowds of cheering bigots. What exactly was the prize for that competition she’s lost? because at this rate its probably smaller then her income from telling this BS story nationwide.

Actually, i think she is making a pretty good living. These bigots will pay big bucks to make sure one of their own is not left on the side of the road. Besides, she is pretty, they will pay even more just to say that they had some beauty queen among the speakers.

Well maybe she will keep the “faithful” men out of the strip joints and attending her “personal appearances”! Wait now, in other “professions” that I think would be called a
“LAP DANCE” wouldn’t it?

Wow – she really has gone nuts. I’m dying of a heart attack of not surprise.

She’s as modest about her accomplishments as she is about her body.

Remember to place your order for Carrie’s upcoming book, Still Standing, due out in November. Rumor has it that the full title will be:

How I got my boob job without becoming top-heavy.

Guess it doesn’t matter to the Bigots that she posed for soft-core porn while a teen, had breast surgery to better her chances in the pageant, then was de-throned for not showing up at contractually agreed-upon events in her duties as Miss California? How delightfully far right convenient, eh?
