"When asked a question about fair pay for women during the Miss USA competition last night, Miss Utah, 21-year-old Marissa Powell, did what happens to so many of us in less glamorous situations. She totally blanked.
And then said: `I think we can relate this back to education and how we are continuing to try to strive to figure out how to create jobs right now. That`s the biggest problem and I think, especially the men are, um, seen as the leaders of this and so we need to try to figure out how to create education better so that we can solve this problem. Thank you.`"
I`m not going to make any jokes about dumb beauty pageant contestants. If I had to deliver remarks before an audience, I would count it a success if I survived the ordeal without wetting my drawers.
You need to be high to follow the convoluted syntax and the dubious reasoning of Powell`s remarks, but who watches such a corny and outdated spectacle without being stoned, anyway?
A hint to beauty pageant contestants: The stock answer for any question is: I am in favor of world peace!
All you haters on Twitter give the young lady a break! Under the glare of TV cameras you`d be channeling Sarah Palin also.
