Wait, Beauty Pageants Are Too Liberal?

Posted by on Tue, Jul 24, 2012 at 1:39 PM

National Confidential says that Ginny Meerman has created the Miss Conservative Pageant because in her opinion, regular beauty pageants are “being overtaken by the liberal movement and liberal-thinking people.”

On her personal website, Meerman complains of “being blackballed for my outspoken and unapologetic conservative ideals.” She also brags about being “a descendant” of confederate General Robert E. Lee. Meerman uses the term “OhBlahBlah” to refer to President Obama, and says he is a “toad” that “must go.”...A “press conference style” on stage interview, patriotic outfit, evening wear and photos are listed as the four major elements of the pageant. Bonus “conservapoints” can also be earned by contestants. One way to earn “conservapoints” is through a written essay explaining “Why I Am A Conservative.”

Man, why would anyone ostracize Meeman? She sounds like a barrel of laughs. And I thought beauty pageants were already conservative institutions. Remember when Perez Hilton got his librul agenda all over poor, apolitical Carrie Prejean? All the conservablogs were wagging their fingers at Perez for "politicizing" an event. And everybody knows that when you're accused of "politicizing" an event, it means you're arguing against something conservative.

"World peace" is a liberal ideal, after all.

Extra Conservapoints will be awarded for winking like Caribou Barbie while answering questions at the "press conference" stage interview.

Robert E. Lee was an educated and intelligent man. After the Civil War he became president of Washington College (now Washington & Lee University). I'm pretty sure when he had opposing political opinions he made thoughtful arguments rather than resorting to gradeschool level name calling. Something tells me he wouldn't be as proud to have this woman as a descendant as she is to be one.

Conservatives are weird.

They see enemies where there are none.

How dare she demand that a Miss Conservative Pageant winner from Georgia accept the rulings of a national Miss Conservative Pageant authority? A true conservative and descendant of Robert E. Lee would know that states' rights always trump federalism.

She kinda looks -- did you do a Google Image Search for her yet? She kinda looks like David Bowie as the Goblin King.

On the up side, I learned a new word: blackballed. At first glance, I thought it was a combination of "blueballed" and "blacklisted". It is not.

@4 Robert E Lee was an enemy of freedom and a total loser. And he would have lost a beauty pagent as well.

These days, the only requirement to being a conservative is batshit insanity. If you're not insane, and are a conservative, the only things allowed out of your mouth are "How high?" and "May I use my tongue?"

Question: There are three winners, one of whom is "Ms. Conservative U.S. 2012 Lara Rhea"


Must be the token moderate candidate.
