Great News: Politics Once Again Arises in Miss USA Pageant

After the Carrie Prejean fiasco of last year is anyone surprised some pinhead judge brought up Arizona's new immigration law? Knock me over with a feather. Here's Miss Oklahoma saying she supports states' rights but playing both side of the border fence by saying she's against profiling, which, of course, the new law prohibits even though opponents who haven't read the law insists it does. I suspect this judge hasn't read the law.

So naturally Miss Oklahoma lost to Miss Michigan, who tripped over her gown and who couldn't answer a simple question. But since she's of Arab descent, we have to give her the award, of course.
Lebanese immigrant Rima Fakih says it was a certain look from Donald Trump that tipped her off that she had won the 2010 Miss USA title.

The 24-year-old Miss Michigan beat out 50 other women to take the title Sunday night, despite nearly stumbling in her evening gown.

She told reporters later that she believed she had won after glancing at pageant owner Trump as she awaited the results with the first runner-up, Miss Oklahoma USA Morgan Elizabeth Woolard.

"That's the same look that he gives them when he says, 'You're hired,'" on Trump's reality show "The Apprentice," she said.

"She's a great girl," said Trump, who owns the pageant with NBC in a joint venture.

Fakih took top honors at the pageant at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip after strutting confidently in an orange and gold bikini, wearing a strapless white gown that resembled a wedding dress and saying health insurance should cover birth control pills.
Trump should be embarrassed for presiding over such a charade, but he's incapable of shame.
Fakih, an Arab-American from Dearborn, Mich., told pageant organizers her family celebrates both Muslim and Christian faiths. She moved to the United States as a baby and was raised in New York, where she attended a Catholic school. Her family moved to Michigan in 2003.
How long until there's a fatwa on her for parading around in a bikini?
