A shining example of Christian values? ~ BrianInNYC

In an interview with Dr. James Dobson Miss California Carrie Prejean (America’s favorite homophobic pinup girl)  said the following:

Dobson: Why did you give the answer you did with regard to the affirmation of marriage?

Prejean: . . . I felt as though Satan was trying to tempt me in asking me this question. And then God was in my head and in my heart saying, "Do not compromise this. You need to stand up for me and you need to share with all these people . . . you need to witness to them and you need to show that you’re not willing to compromise that for this title of Miss USA."

And I knew right here that it wasn’t about winning. It was about being true to my convictions.

    Good Morning! Interesting post, Brian.
    This whole Miss USA thing turns my stomach. And Carrie “Pray- jean” is an embarrassment to intelligent women. She couldn’t answer the question about gay marriage coherently; remember that bit about “opposite marriage?” She tears up as she blames everyone else for what she is really responsible for. And she’s a liar and a hypocrite who is using her body to get ahead. Definitely NOT the kind of woman to be admired.

  2. You gotta wonder what god was whispering in her ear when she flashed her stuff in front of a photographer!

    Yeah Nannymm,
    If God was in her head, you’d think He could have helped her not sound like such a bimbo.

    Rumor has it that Cheney is furious at Donald Trump and Miss California for stealing his cable TV press coverage this week. 😉

  5. In case anyone missed Keith last night:

    Keith Olbermann WTF Moment: Miss California Carrie Prejean (VIDEO)

    I love KO’s new WTF Moment! Too bad he can’t say it. This “decency” thing is ridiculous. Pics of half nude bimbos are okey dokey, as are risque sex scenes; but just saying the word “fuck” warrants a huge fine? Or does it? Isn’t cable exempt from FCC bullshit regs? 😉

    I don’t know what all the hubbub is about. At Casa Horsedooty, we are all in shock that Ty Murry was voted off the island at Dancing With The Stars. The Cowboy Nation is in mourning this morning. 🙂

  8. nannymm

    May I be the first to offer my condolences, Doots.

  9. dog's eye view

    Good morning all.

    Guessing cable is exempt from FCC broadcast regs. Think I’ve heard the F-word a few times on “South Park.” And maybe on “The Daily Show” too, although think they might try to cut it out (while leaving it obvious it was said).

    How fun. More intense listening over next few days to when and where one does hear the F-word on cable….

    Beats watching broadcast most days, though. Unless it’s 60 Minutes.

    Nanny: it starting to look like spring up there yet?

    =========

    On Miss Prejean: saw comment elsewhere that Trump’s decision means he allowed Prejean to ignore the terms of her contract with the pageant. Opening the door to next contestant in trouble — maybe with way more egregious stuff — to say “But look how Miss California’s case was handled.”

    Bad spot for Trump, though, even though he seems to love any publicity. Tick off those Prejean offended, or those who think she stands for morals (except for that youthful transgression; sneaky photographer).

    scarborough has lost this commenter for ever now with this latest statement on Morning Load.

  11. Yeah I caught that this morning too dnd, serves me right for getting up so early. This morning’s show was a disgrace. The three males on the show were generally speaking pretty pathetic. You’d think they had never seen an attractive female before the way they were acting regarding Miss California, it was like the middle aged version of Animal House, and Joe’s stupid remarks about national security made me glad he left the congress!

  12. nannymm

    It’s finally starting to look like spring, Dog. The trees are getting their leaves and the grass is green. I even picked a few tulips and daffodils last evening. Now if only it would warm up more….

  13. dnd

    Brian,
    That was Doots who put up that comment.

    “if you believe like I believe and 50% of Americans believe, that this program actually made America safer.”

    Jingo Joe can believe any damn thing he wants. He has no evidence to back up the belief that EITs made us safer. He’s just a partisan hack who has no moral qualm about lying to justify his position.

    One could easily, and more cogently, argue that EITs have made us less safe; e.g., chasing down bogus information, enemies that fight to the death knowing that capture will result in torture, etc. The “ticking time bomb” argument doesn’t work either, since all of those EITs take time.

    The best argument against EITs is that the FBI, who, unlike the CIA are experts at interrogations, don’t use them.

  14. nannymm

    Very well said, dnd.

  15. nannymm

    Talk about WTF moments!! I don’t believe this!!! WTF is Obama thinking??? He NOW wants to delay the release of those prisoner photos??? There is a court order that says they must be released. So are they planning an appeal to SCOTUS? Sure looks like it. Damn!!
    Whatever happened to transparency? Just words, I guess. What a disappointment!
    Looks to me like Obama is giving in to Odierno’s hissy fit. Just what we need, another president who kisses the butts of his generals.

  16. Slow down nanny, there is concern, and it may be valid that releasing the photos could put our soldiers in greater harm’s way. Very tough call.

  17. dnd

    From the military mind of dnd:
    Many of the insurgents are mercenaries, who are only in it for the money. If they see pictures of torture, they will fight to the death rather than get captured. If they see pictures of FBI interrogators giving them tea, cigarettes, a Koran and a prayer rug, they might be more likely to surrender.

    So we get fewer troops killed or injured, get better intel which in turn gets fewer troops killed or injured.

  18. eprof2

    When I read that Obama doesn’t want the torture photos released two things came to mind: One, Ms. Cheney, the younger, pushed Obama into this decision; two, the photos will cause the Obama administration and the DOJ to pursue “the truth wherever it leads.” On both accounts, Obama’s credibility just sank a few more points.

  19. nannymm

    Well, here’s how I see it. Sunshine is the best disinfectant, as my mother would have said.
    Let’s admit we screwed up, take our lumps and vow never to do it again. To those who still think it was OK to torture and abuse prisoners, here’s the proof that is was not. Anytime you need to hide what you have done, you should know you did wrong.
    As for protecting our military, let’s just bring them home. They’ll be safe here.

  20. nannymm

    Thank you, eprof. Seems like you and I are once again on the same wavelength. I’m disgusted with Obama right now. This is clearly not what I voted for.

  21. “As for protecting our military, let’s just bring them home. They’ll be safe here.”

    Are you willing to wait? Look you might be right and they should be released right away, but I’m saying there is a valid issue here.

  22. eprof2

    Democrats can’t muster enough Senate votes to stop Republicans from filibuster over David Hayes for Assistant Sec. of the Interior. Kennedy, Kerry, and Mikulski absent.

    Blue Dog Democrats in House got more than $6.1 from health care insurance companies. Vow not to support single payer system.

    It’s great to be a Democrat in charge of US policies, eh?

  23. nannymm

    Brian, the longer we wait, the worse it will be. Sooner or later those pictures will come out and we will face the consequences. It’s better to just get it over and done with. And transparency is the RIGHT thing to do. Haven’t we had enough secrecy?

  24. nanny I’m not the one who will have to live with the guilt if the photos get released and there is a jump in deaths of our soldiers.

  25. dnd

    “Republicans blocked Mr. Hayes mainly to protest the Interior Department’s decision earlier this year to cancel 77 leases to drill for oil and gas in wilderness areas of Utah. Republicans have been trying to promote domestic oil and gas production. Democrats have been concerned about opening up environmentally sensitive areas to drilling and instead emphasized greater reliance on renewable resources.”

    http://online.wsj.com/article/SB124222560583215209.html

    eprof2,
    While in the Senate, Salazar could work across the aisle. But if the Republicans want to be petty power brokers, Sec. Salazar can put the hammer down. Bad politics by the Senate Republicans.

    ps. From the same WSJ piece: “Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) used a procedural maneuver to ensure that he could try again to vote on Mr. Hayes, something that might work out at another time when Democrats show up in full force.”

  26. nannymm

    I’m not the one who will have to live with the guilt if the photos get released and there is a jump in deaths of our soldiers.

    Neither will Obama. It is Bush/Cheney, et al who bear full responsibility for whatever has happened and whatever will happen as a result of the torture and abuse they sanctioned.

  27. dnd

    eprof2,
    Single payer has it’s pros and cons. But I have a better approach to a solution: all members of Congress will have to get their own individual health insurance policies for themselves and their families. No access to group policies, no piggybacking on a spouse’s ability to get a policy through work. No tax deductions for premiums. Premium payment via PACs or campaign committees or contributors would be a felony. Pre-existing conditions can not be covered.

    Put that in place now and I’m guessing there would be radical health care reform by Memorial Day. 😉

  28. “Neither will Obama. It is Bush/Cheney, et al who bear full responsibility for whatever has happened and whatever will happen as a result of the torture and abuse they sanctioned.”

    That should be of great comfort to the families.

  29. nannymm

    The sad truth is that many of the families would blame Obama for releasing photos, but they supported Bush’s illegal and unnecessary war as well as the use of torture. And they would never think to blame him.

  30. nannymm

    You know, the more I think about this, the angrier I get. I think I’m going to go bake something.

  31. bake me a pie, blueberry!

  32. dnd

    Another theory. Obama is meeting with Mubarak here in a couple of weeks. Then he’s speaking in Egypt the first week of June. Releasing the photos now could be a major distraction in a diplomatic mission.

  33. dnd

    This Sgt. Russell tragedy reminds me of what a buddy who did a combat tour in Vietnam told me. He said that every combat vet gets PTSD. It’s only a matter of when and to the degree.

    Treatment is much better now, but I think his thesis still holds.

  34. eprof2

    dnd, I agree with you completely on the health insurance for Congress, as well as for staff. They would “belly up to the bar” real quick on single payer health insurance. It’s the old story: socialism for the elites and capitalism for the rest of us.

    Brian, I have to agree with Nannymm on the photos. Let’s take our medicine now, get them out there, and tell our military to duck until we can get them home. I also don’t agree with you that there is a cause and effect relationship between photos and military deaths. Was there an increase in violence after the Abu Ghraib photos were released? I don’t think so, so why would that happen now? Nanny is right: put the blame on these practices where it belongs: Bush, Cheney, et.al.

  35. dnd

    Roger Simon:
    “A member of the Republican National Committee told me Tuesday that when the RNC meets in an extraordinary special session next week, it will approve a resolution rebranding Democrats as the “Democrat Socialist Party.” ”

    http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0509/22445.html

    When are the wackjobs in charge going to realize that being a party who can only juvenilely attack the opposition is what got them voted out of their “permanent” majority.

  36. eprof2

    Tic for Tat: Rebrand the Repugs: The Whigs.

  37. dnd

    Tonight on Fox: Why the socialist Obama administration wants to deprive you of your Cheerios.

    Ok, just kidding. I think 😉

  38. trout boy aka Horsedooty

    that is funny dnd nice

  39. nannymm

    Brian, I made 2 blueberry pies. And they look wonderful!

  40. nannymm

    Rebrand the Repugs: The Whigs.

    I say we should rebrand them as the “Repugnant Criminal Party.”

  41. dnd

    Just saw the clips of Gibbs confiscating the cell phone in the press briefing.

    Tonight on Fox: The Obama dictatorship will confiscate your cell phone. Are your guns next?

  42. dnd

    Nannymm,
    I’m not much of a pie guy, but if someone puts a piece of blueberry pie in front of me, it will disappear in short order 😉

  43. nannymm

    Those FOX people have no sense of humor.

  44. dnd

    I think the funniest thing of the Gibbs cell phone thing today was as soon as it happened, Bill Plant’s phone rang. Obviously someone was watching and dialed Plant. He then walked out of the press room yakking on his phone. When he returned, Gibbs said: “Could someone brief Bill on the Supreme Court nominee.”

    Gibbs was the perfect choice for WH spokesperson.

  45. nannymm

    I knew you were kidding, dnd. But you may be clairvoyant, too. That scenario sounds just like the FOX spin.

  46. Evening peeps, love that Bill Plant story, sorry I missed it!
