Those that defend Carrie Prejean continually say she's allowed to state her opinion, and she shouldn't have been punished at the Miss USA Pageant for doing so. We agree.
However, as she continues to milk her newfound fame, it would be nice if Prejean actually had an opinion!
If you're gonan become a spokesperson for a cause, aren't you under an obligation to speak intelligently on that cause, and not just utter the same few words over and over?
Instead, the fake-boobed beauty queen just spouts the same tired line about "protecting traditional marriage," as if gays getting hitched was somehow a direct threat against heterosexual nuptials; and/or as if men and women were trying to protect traditional marriage themselves (the current divorce rate in America: 48%!).
During an interview with Greta Van Susteren of Fox News last night, Prejean literally could not provide an answer to a pair of questions directly related to the issue of gay marriage: civil unions and adoption.
Look at me! I can recite the same five words again and again: I just support traditional marriage!
Seriously, gay marriage haters and Bible thumpers, is this the woman you want representing your views?
Greta Van Susteren : What is your thought on civil unions?
Carrie Prejean: My thought on civil unions? You know what, Greta? I don't have the answers to everything. I'm not running for political office. I don't have the answers to everything, you know, in the world out there. But I think that there should be rights for people, you know, especially in California. I think that people that are homosexual should have some rights, you know, hospital rights, and things like that.
But I would like to be more educated on that, so when I do have a better answer for you, I will get back to you on that one.
But so far I just support traditional marriage, and that's my main focus.
Greta Van Susteren: What about adoption?
Carrie Prejean: Greta, I am focusing on marriage right now, not adoption, not civil unions, just traditional marriage, and I'm going to do whatever it takes to promote that.
Seemingly, "whatever it takes" simply involves smiling for the camera and uttering the same few words over and over, without any reasonable explanation behind her views.
One more thing: during the Miss California Pageant, Prejean referred to the Special Olympics as a key part of her platform.
Why has she not uttered a word in public about this event since? It can't be because that isn't as controversial - and, therefore, as attention-grabbing - an issue as gay marriage, can it?!?
