New Miss California: Marriage is between a man and a woman

Ah, the irony. If only it were true. The transcript makes it sound like she agrees with Cavuto when he suggests marriage is for straights only, but after watching the clip it looks to me like she’s vacantly trying to come up with the most politic response possible. Skip ahead to 2:55. She does say “mm hmm” when he asks her, but it’s almost as if she didn’t hear the question, especially given how quickly she moves to qualify her answer. Which, by the way, is incoherent:

“I don’t think that I have the right or anybody has a right to tell somebody who they can or can’t love. And I think that this is a civil rights issue. And I think that the right thing to do is let the voters decide.”

No one has the right to tell anyone whom they can marry — except, um, the voters. Better study those flashcards a little more closely before the next interview.

Carrie Prejean’s on with Hannity tonight (which should be airing as I post this) to explain how, contra what pageant officials claim, she met all of her responsibilities as Miss Cali. In that case, how come she just got canned by a clothing company too for failing to fulfill her promotional duties? Hmmm.
