Conservatives Go From Joe the Plumber to Miss USA

I found it funny that people were up in arms about Miss USA, a beauty contestant, who spoke her mind on gay marriage. She's a BEAUTY contestant in a BEAUTY pageant. She parades on a stage in a bikini and evening wear. Come on. Who cares what she thinks.
Frankly, I didn't know people still watched beauty pageants. I suppose some people probably watch it for the same reasons they listen to Rush-- because they love to hate it.
Anyway, conservatives have themselves another winner, continuing their winning ways:
CNN: Carrie Prejean, the Miss USA contestant from California who famously declared her opposition to same sex marriage on the pageant stage, will star in a new $1.5 million ad campaign funded by the National Organization for Marriage.

Prejean was roasted by same-sex marriage advocates after she stood up for what she called "opposite marriage" (marriage between a man and a woman) when responding to a question from celebrity blogger Perez Hilton during the pageant. But she's also become a fresh-faced standard-bearer for the same-sex marriage opponents, who have rallied to her defense.
