In Defense of Miss Utah
Everyone is ragging on Miss Utah for her bone headed answer during the Q & A portion of the Miss Universe pageant last night. Not me. I’m wearing my fedora and driving the Marissa Powell bandwagon straight into the sunset. Its so easy to be a couch potato observer and call Marissa dumb. Did you hear the question she was asked? “A recent report shows that in 40% of American families with children, women are the primary earners, yet they continue to earn less than man. What does it say about society?” That question was asked by NeNe Leakes, who appeared on Real Housewives of Atlanta and somehow learned to put all those words together in a sentence. How do you answer a question like that on the spot in 30 seconds? She stumbled through that answer because it was a dumb fucking question. I’ve never understood how half the competition can be spent judging these girls in bikini’s and evening gowns and the other half is spent discussing world politics. If she answered this question eloquently, does that make her smart? Of course not, so the fact that she stumbled through it shouldnt make her stupid either. If it was me up there in a beautiful dress and some woman named NeNe asked me that same question I’d do the only thing I know how to do: fake wrestle. Microphone to the head of Giuliana Rancic, then I’m sprinting off camera and pulling that piece of shit Jonas brother on stage by his hair and I’m choking him out on live TV. Ultimate heel turn. If only Marissa Powell let me coach her. She could’ve been a contender!
P.S. When in doubt during a competition go Will Ferrell in Old School. Blackout and hope for the best.
