Miss California will continue to be the gift that keeps on giving; a regular pageant-paid-for-silicone-enhanced version of Joe the Plumber. The scuttlebutt is that she is being courted to substitute for Elisabeth Hasselbeck on The View. (PopCrunch):Flies on the wall at ABC claim View producers are eagerly pursuing Miss California Carrie Prejean - who made international headlines with her anti-gay marriage statement during the 2009 Miss USA pageant earlier this month - to fill-in for the equally conservative Hasselbeck when she goes on maternity leave later this year.
...The National Enquirer's Mike Walker writes: "It could turn into a permanent gig for the controversial beauty queen....Barbara's seriously fed up with Elisabeth's coo-coo-conserva-babble - and her looney-toon responses..."
From The Rev.:So Babs is going to replace one vacuous, blonde, wing-nut bimbo for another. Was Miss Teen South Carolina '07 unavailable?
When you get dissed by both Perez Hilton and NOM, how bad does it suck to be you? This is the press release the haters sent out. They're clearly trying to distance themselves from the babbling beauty queen:
NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR MARRIAGE:
STATEMENT ON CARRIE PREJEAN(Princeton, NJ) - Maggie Gallagher, president of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) released this statement today clarifying the role of Carrie Prejean at a press conference held Thursday in Washington, DC:
“A number of media sources have described Carrie Prejean as a spokesperson for the National Organization for Marriage.
As we made clear at our press conference yesterday: Carrie appeared with NOM as a private citizen; she does not work for the National Organization for Marriage. She is a spokesperson for her own views, as anyone watching her can tell.
We are grateful to Carrie Prejean for her willingness to stand up for marriage. We would love to work with Carrie in the future if she chooses, and we wish her well in all her future endeavors whatever she chooses. We're proud of her. Americans are proud of her. She is a remarkable young woman. Thank you, Carrie. "
In other words,"thanks, but no thanks, bitch." This leaves Miss Cali with two options for reviving her pitiful career:
1) Check into rehab and later say it was the booze talking.
2) Make a sex tape and leak it to the press.
