Well, such as, uh everywhere and over here, and places like that, as well as over here, uh, we should really feel, that is if we could, well, uh be here and not there, we can feel bad for the people that don’t live here, even though there is okay, it’s not uhhh, here and then we could have a better, ummm, way. That’s how I, umm, feel.

I think you’ve summed it up perfectly, Tom.

and perhaps she was totally thrown off guard for one reason or another and her mind went blank at the worst possible moment. .. and someone in the audience was doing a strip tease, distracting her… and… the announcer was pinching her bum… and… her brother is in the army and they just got horrible news and she’s focused on that… and .. ah…. maybe she couldn’t believe the statistics… and ah… I’m running out of possibilities…

We’ve been laughing at this for days. Poor girl. Usually beauty contests aren’t based on intellect. DUH. Yep, “Proud and blonde of It!”. And I don’t think her mind just went blank….......................

If this is true, and I have no reason to know if it is or not, she clearly had trouble answering this question. Whatever the reason for her inarticulate answer pointing out her deficiency and calling everyone’s attention to it is really no better than a child on a playground pointing at someone and laughing.

If it is a parody of the typical blond stereotype it’s not particularly humorous, if it is real then it is not clear how we benefit or are better people by forwarding it around the internet and laughing at her.

By laughing at her do you somehow feel driven to be a better person? Somehow upgrade your skills in geography or public speaking….? Yeah, I didn’t think so.

And don’t tell me you all were just so shocked and amazed you just had to ask the world if it were true. So what if it is, so what if it isn’t. It’s not funny and it’s not beneficial, why invest your energy in it.

It is ealy in the day and I am going to ramble a bit <laugh>, this is just one opinion, I have many oposing ones.. I even argue with my self sometimes <grin>.

Coloradoclimber, why is it wrong to talk about it or for that matter even laugh at it? It was funny , sad, embarrassing and more. I have been up in front of 100s of people doing presentations and have luckily never had a moment that bad but the fear was always there :) I have had moments that were bad and I laughed at them and don’t mind others have a good giggle at my expense.

When people puts themselves up in front of the world to be judged they should expect the world to see and talk about it. It is only right that we get to see the best and also the worst and then get to joke, laugh and maybe try to learn. In this case maybe learning that we all make mistakes could be something that we take a way from this. Maybe holding a Miss teen USA contest is almost as dumb as her answer but what ever you take a way form this (her answers lame as they were) it is it there for all to see and talk about.

Her mind didn’t go blank, it’s been that way since birth.
She studied so hard that she just memorized the “Geography” answer.
Her responce was typical. She didn’t listen to the question, and because she has poor listening habits, she, like a lot of people, just put her mouth in gear, slid her brain into nuetral, and coasted til she crashed.
She wasn’t there because of her great intellect, she was there because she had big hooters, and probably “earned” her right to be there by something other than winning the county spellin bee.

And Lee, Bob spells his name backwards too.

oh, and coloradoclimber… Don was doing what everybody does. He was reporting the News. He didn’t own his own newspaper, he doesn’t have a gossip column or a rack at the local market, he doesn’t own a tevelvision Network or studio, so he, being the responsible journalist that he is, reported the News, as he saw it, to his audience. If you don’t like it… Change The Channel.

Bob, I made the same un-flattering corollary with our Chief Executive. Like the other Bob, you too don’t seem to shy away from controversy. Tapadh leat.

When I first saw this post and followed the link in one of my nighttime rambles, I decided to just close the door and keeping walking and muttering down the cyber-hallway, rather than sticking my head in and giving comment. But now I can’t resist. Beauty queens (and politicians) are a rarefied breed apart from the normal humans. These are the people who came up with butt adhesive to more firmly bond long dresses to their admirable backsides, so you know it’s another world than the one we occupy.
The quest to win awards for beauty is something I will never understand, but having been born without the equipment to even be in the running, I am freed of the necessity of considering whether I would choose to participate. However, if you choose to go in for all that, you get what you get if you blow it. Your fifteen minutes of fame…are up. The problem I have with it, so amply identified by Don’s initial posting, is the further damage to America’s image to the rest of the world. It’s bad enough that we have spawned creatures like Ms. Hilton and Ms. Spears. That we have been sufficiently hypnotized by the apparent lack of substance in our lives to hold them up as being newsworthy is another matter again. And now there is this unusually vapid and jingoistic display to contend with anew. Hopefully the world remembers the sort of fiber that Americans have displayed in the past, and will not take this as further evidence of advanced root-rot in our national character.

Now I’ll keep ambling and muttering down the cyber-hallway.
