A friend recently pointed out a wonderful bit of irony that I pass on here. You will recall the brouhaha that unfolded following the Miss USA pageant and the response Miss California – Carrie Prejean – gave to a question asked of her during the contest regarding the definition of marriage in this country. Here answer, of course, was ‘I believe that marriage should be between a man and a woman…that’s the way I was raised.’ One of the judges – Perez Hilton – had a complete breakdown at this response and subsequently referred to Ms. Prejean as a bitch and a c&%$ - you know that nasty word. On the heels of Hilton’s despicable remarks he was joined in the fray by two other pillars of intellect – Keith Olb&%$#@! – you know that nasty lapdog for all things liberal and Michael M&%$# - you know that nasty little mousey-faced ‘journalist.’ Keith said on his lightly viewed television show: ‘Perez Hilton looks like some intellectual titan and some sort of civil right’s leader…’ Sweet Michael added these astonishingly fey and adolescent comments in reference to Ms. Prejean: ‘She’s dumb and twisted. This girl’s a ding-dong. I didn’t even like her earrings.’ (This is excellent and erudite commentary, indeed. Why do these people have jobs?) So, Miss California and her definition of marriage have been sliced and diced, maligned and ridiculed and treated as so much slime and ignorance by these and many other spewing heads (except, of course, for The National Organization of Women.) So Thom, where is this precious irony to which you refer? Here: comment made by then-candidate Barack Obama – a candidate much supported by the geniuses quoted above -during the Saddleback Civil Forum on the Presidency on August 16, 2008: ‘I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman.’ Draw your own conclusion.
