Beauty Pageants? What a joke!

Reader comment on item: Affirmative Action in Beauty Contests?

Submitted by George B Vieto (United States), May 18, 2010 at 02:23

Please if Miss USA won that contest fair and square then I have a bridge in Panama to sell you. Case in point in 1986 why do you think Barbara Palacios Teyde won Miss Universe in 1986? First runner up was a Miss USA and had she won the Miss Universe title in Panama while Manuel Noreiga was in power all you know what would break loose. Why do you think Carrie Prejean was not Miss USA 2009? She opposed gay marriage and she was terminated by the Miss California pageant later that year. Why do you think Justine Pasek was Miss Universe 2002? To celebrate Panama's 100 years. The pageants are done with me. These young ladies will regret that the promoters made them beauty queens only for them being their puppets.
