A few facts about Vista, California:

  • It has a population of approximately 100,000 people;
  • In the state legislature, the city is located in the 38th Senate District, and is represented by Republican Mark Wyland; in the 74th Assembly District, it is represented by Republican Martin Garrick.
  • In the 2008 Presidential election, John McCain won the 49th Congressional District, which includes Vista, by eight percentage points over Barack Obama.

Why are we listing these seemingly random figures? To prove that the area is a heavy Conservative stronghold, and yet…

… the folks of the Vista Unified School District in San Diego have voted – overwhelmingly – NOT to give Carrie Prejean a day in her honor.

Donald Trump, aware that the wind could blow Carrie Prejean’s top open at any moment, helps to avoid another wardrobe malfunction.

According to TMZ, the debate over whether or not to showcase Miss California – a Vista native – with “Carrie Prejean Day” lasted for 45 minutes, ending with just one person voting in favor of it.

Steve Lily, Vice President of the school board, said the district had never honored a former student and didn’t wish to start with someone who “had breast implants, posed semi-nude” and whose goal was to be a Victoria’s Secret model.

So, what do you have to say now, Christian Conservatives? Carrie’s hometown, one that has a long history of voting Republican, wants nothing to do with her.
