That video of Keith Olbermann dissembling Miss California's "arguments" has been making its way around the LGBT blogosphere, but I didn't post it here I just thought he was coming at the whole thing from the wrong perspective. His video's after the jump, but Jon Stewart expresses most of my thoughts on this topic a lot better than I could. What do you all think?
While most of what Olbermann says is right, I just can't get past the fact that we're talking about what's really a dog show with women contestants run by one of the countries most ridiculous human beings. I don't see how we are expected to divorce Prejeans comments from the sexist context in which they were spoken, but I guess if you really want to respond to them, line-by-line, then this would be how to do it.
And about Shanna Moakler quitting Miss USA to be a better "role model for my children," jeez, she already worked for Miss USA when it was just demeaning to women. Her revelation that maybe the Miss USA competition isn't about bettering the next generation of American girls seems a little late.
