Ladies and Whatever, Miss South Carolina!

posted by on August 26 at 18:55 PM

So, Miss South Carolina! What DO you think about the tragic state of American education, and what should be done about it?

Well. That certainly clears THAT up.

(Thanks, Blaire! I think…)

Wow! Where can I get her phone number!

It's been a long time since I heard a choke that bad. It's obvious that she didn't even hear the question. I least I dearly hope that was the case. Christ.

I applaud her for breaking down those horrible southern stereotypes...

oh wait, nevermind.

Quick! Correct the spelling of "Gentelmen" in your post headline and delete my comment. No one has to know.

South Africa? what on earth is she talking about

Posted by vooodooo84 | August 26, 2007 8:26 PM

Absolutely shameful.

And yet the question remains unanswered: Why is it 20% of Americans can't identify their country on a world map?

Posted by James | August 26, 2007 8:35 PM

Glad these pageants are about more than looks. I mean I would hate to think that Miss Teen USA is just about ogling jail bait.

Posted by Giffy | August 26, 2007 8:42 PM

She reminds me of the woman who subs in for Tony Snow. Her sentences are equally incoherent. Miss SC has a future!

Posted by Mariana | August 26, 2007 8:51 PM

Quick lady! Find us on a map!

Posted by Jesus Christ, that was horrible | August 26, 2007 9:14 PM

How dare you slander Dana Parino like that! She's not incoherehnt, she's just a true believer (TM).



There is something mesmerizing about her though....

Posted by K X One | August 26, 2007 9:21 PM

They probably should have asked the question of someone who actually COULD find our country on a world map. I don't think that girl could find her own ass if I goosed her.

Posted by Gomez | August 26, 2007 9:33 PM

I'm just speechless. I mean, even without the part where she totally lost it - students in the US can't find things on maps because they don't have maps?

Posted by wench | August 26, 2007 9:38 PM

Perez sucks dick in hell.

Posted by Mr. Poe | August 26, 2007 9:44 PM

No one asked her to be smart, just a whore.

Posted by opus23 | August 26, 2007 9:45 PM

I think her answer was an actual demonstration of where these rather questionable statistics come from. Giving the wrong answer because you didn't hear or understand the question, or were just nervous and flummoxed by the situation.

And then there are the smart asses who would find a survey asking you to point to USia on a map to be absurd. I know if a survey taker asked me a question that stupid, the last place I'd point is the big country in the middle of North America.

I'd point to Pago Pago, and smile real big. Fuck 'em.

For a while I think SC was dead last in average SAT scores and had one of the highest percentage of high school drop outs. I used to teach at a unversity in SC and many of the students couldn't read. Sad but true.

Here, I quickly googled some SAT data from 1999:,+US&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=2&gl=us

Posted by Prof | August 26, 2007 10:36 PM

To give her the benefit of the doubt: if she took the question literally to mean, "Twenty percent of Americans don't own maps, and thus can't find America on their non-existent maps. Why?" The logical answer is obviously, "Because they don't own any maps to look at, dipshit." Which is, I think, what she said: "Some people out there in our nation don't have maps." And then she got some random oral diarrhea about South Africa, of all countries.

Yeah, that's a lot of benefit for that much doubt.

I was flipping through the channels and landed on the pageant about 5 minutes before this clip and was just mesmorized by the terribleness of the interview answers. This one was by far the worst, but others were also really bad. If you can find the questions for all of the last 5 finalists on YouTube, you should watch it (and there was some sort of question round immediately preceding it which was also amazingly awful).

Posted by Julie | August 27, 2007 8:43 AM

Laugh all you want, but she's telling it like it is. Miss South Carolina rocks my education system!

Posted by Gurldoggie | August 27, 2007 9:45 AM

I love Slater's smirk as he listens to that bumbling bimbo dribble out the most ridiculous answer imaginable.

Posted by Carollani | August 27, 2007 10:09 AM

If anything she did help bring some insight to the question with her answer.... America's Educational System SUCKS!
Way To Go Miss South Carolina!

Posted by Alison | August 27, 2007 1:48 PM

"...the Iraq. Everywhere like such as"

Pure poetry!

Posted by Jimmy Legs | August 27, 2007 3:14 PM

Way to throw her a curve ball!! She was ready to answer the question with "World Peace."

Posted by Scottie | August 27, 2007 3:33 PM

I couldn't hear what she said over the luster of the lipgloss coating her beautiful, beautiful mouth.

If kids really need to know where the US is for some reason, they can Google it.

Posted by violet_dagrinder | August 27, 2007 4:13 PM

I tried to find South Carolina on the map, but all I saw below North Carolina was a luscious pair of cock-sucking pink lips. After that, I no longer cared where South Carolina (or South Africa for that matter) was located...

Posted by jack | August 27, 2007 8:17 PM

I saw her on The Today Show this morning, she said she didn't hear the question all the way and was really nervous.

I also watched the show live (yeah, I know. I suck). She had that contest in the bag till her little meltdown. I felt bad for her.

She has a 3.5 GPA so I don't think she's stupid. She did make fun of herself on the Today Show and said she's incredibly embarassed.

Ahh, the shining youth of American in action. A fine example of one of our best and brightest, stepping out into the lime light and planting her best foot smartly foward and deeply into the center of her pretty little mouth. Is it any wonder that the United States is falling behind the rest of the world in just about everything? I think not! (Oh wait now, everything except for weapons...we are still the leader in production of guns, tanks, super high tech jet fighters, oh and lets not forget the plutonium pits for nuclear weapons..uncle George just got us a brand new plant online to make more of those desperatly needed items.) It reassuring to know that we also have a solid lead in the production of retared southern bells who have less than a clue! A fine example for my daughter - there you go honey, just look "hot" and you can be as dumb as a fence post! The explaination she slathered out this morning "I didn't hear the question" was just more icing on the cake. Hey dumbo, I got an about asking the host to repeat himself if you didn't get the question? Wouldn't that be the intelligent thing to do? Instead of just trying to wing it with a mouth full of unintelligible word salad? I Bet she was just trying to practice the George W. Bush method of emergency answering of difficult questions technique. Spew out a bunch of unconnected BS with a big grin on your face. Flash a photo op thumbs up (your arse) to the croud and hope that by the time anyone can decipher what you said, the interview will be over. God bless all yall of the US people, Amen

A comment was posted in regard to this video clip by someone who goes by the tag 'Weeping for the youth of today" and in their comments it was easy to feel their absolute distain for G. W. Bush. First, read their comments and then you'll know why I would say the following to them: "Say what you want about her education and how much you hate Bush, but at least you can be assured that with her education (or lack thereof) Miss S. Carolina will aways be a loyal Democratic voter. Just like you are I'm sure. Have a nice day you DUMBASS!!"

That fine piece of ass was put on this planet for something very important and that something is definetly not public speaking.

Posted by Joe H | August 28, 2007 3:16 PM

I mean who cares? Just look at her!

Posted by Joe H | August 28, 2007 3:26 PM

somebody, please makeup a question to the answer she gave. She is so incoherent that I can not even understand what she is trying to say. May her offsprings not take after her brains! It is embarassing to even watch!
