That’s Right Nate

Thoughts from a right thinker.

Paul Potts, Susan Boyle, and Carrie Prejean

with 12 comments

I’ve been feeling sorry for Paul Potts lately.   In 2007, he was the ugly guy with the amazing operatic voice that took Britain’s Got Talent by storm.   As often happens with these things, he was replaced a few years later by an even uglier and equally talented person in Susan Boyle.   If you believe in evolutionary theory, England should continue to get uglier and more talented in the years to come.

I think what made Paul Potts and Susan Boyle such big sensations is that people couldn’t believe ugly people could be talented.   I think Carrie Prejean had a similar effect on people who did not believe a beautiful person could wax so eloquently on highly moral matters like opposite marriage.    Even Donald Trump said about her answer, “if her beauty wasn’t so great, nobody would have cared.”  I’d like to believe that Donald Trump let her keep her crown as Miss California USA for all the right reasons, but the truth is the pageant had already spent consider money on her breasts and they knew they were never going to get that money back.  I think they just didn’t want to throw good money after bad.

N0w, some of you are going to say, “but she posed for racy photos.   She’s not fit to be Miss California.”  However, is there really a better way to prostelitize for a heterosexual lifestyle?   What Carrie did was to sacrifice her dignity for the chance that gay men might see her lovely female form and be drawn to heterosexuality.  This is a woman who is beautiful, but stands up for her beliefs just like Anita Bryant before her.   I think there is a future for Miss Prejean as a Fox News anchor and if that is her dream, I truly hope she pursues it.  After all, there will be another beauty queen last year and she will become yesterday’s news the way that Paul Potts did.  She should strike while the iron is hot.

  1. She’d be perfect for Fox News – if she can read the teleprompter. I’m not entirely sure about that.

  2. I really think that that’s negotiable

  3. She could always hawk Florida Orange Juice. It worked for Anita Bryant.

  4. I agree with Nate.. reading is negotiable.. so are brains… she has already proven that.. so have most of the hosts on Fox…lol

    But, we have to give her a chance…at least to prove herself. So far she is showing she is full of lots of talk…mostly.

  5. She is clearly not fit to be Miss California. During the Miss America competition, her breasts were covered by several square centimetres of cotton, yet in the lewd photos that later emerged, we’re looking at nothing more than … actually, we’re looking at nothing, but any red-blooded heterosexual male can fill in the blanks quite easily I’m sure.

    I love the way she said she didn’t want to offend anybody. Whenever I express an opinion that basically equates to stripping rights from a large segment of the population, I always preface it with “I don’t want to offend anybody.”

    For example: I don’t want to offend anybody, but those Mexicans are so lazy!

  6. Fraser proves he knows nothing. Carrie was not a Miss America delegate, she is in the MIss USA system. I wish he knew for one minute what pressure we face in having to be beautiful, articulate, thoughtful, courteous and buxom every minute of the day. Beauty queens are people too! You rock Carrie!

  7. Fraser–Tell me about it. Some of my employees are just like that.

    Cecily–Yes she most certainly does rock.

  8. I always thought the terms USA and America were interchangeable, you know, like England and the UK.

  9. Oh they’re very much different. You wouldn’t see people on boats and on planes coming to the USA. They’re coming to America. Conversely, at sporting events America just doesn’t have the same ring as USA-USA-USA.

  10. What is a prejean anyway? Some ancient form of dungaree?


    May 18, 2009 at 6:14 pm

  11. That’s an excellent question Wrecks

  12. Susan Boyle is an incredibly talented lady who’s been subjected to considerable ridicule in the media. IMHO she deserves every bit of success that she is experiencing.
