…or laugh, or both. But really this is just sad. I have no idea what this girl is trying to say, to steal a phrase from the Principal in Billy Madison,

“Miss South Carolina, what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.”

I’m curious if she would be able locate anything on a map.

Congrats to Hilary Carol Cruz, Miss Colorado Teen USA 2007 for winning though, the boy and I agreed at the beginning of the show that she was the “hottest”, before he told me in no uncertain terms were we watching the rest of the broadcast. Thankfully, the good entertaining bits were posted on youtube.

    UPDATE: It is just funny & ironic that she bombed a softball question about the education of Americans. It doesn’t help matters that she is a pretty blonde!

    I saw her on the Today show this morning, and were nice to her…a little TOO nice I thought. I would have quizzed her on geography like I do my friend Stephanie. (Stephanie is brilliant by all accounts (she is a lawyer) but knows JACK about geography…although I’m pretty sure she can locate countries on the map…she has difficulty with the states) It is funny that she says she misunderstood the question…I can understand being nervous in high pressure situations but there comes a time when you just have to STOP talking! If she just BLANKED OUT, I think people would be more sympathetic.
