I understand Rush was part of it this year. What really off the wall question did he ask?

Is Miss America a sexist relic of a bygone era? A lot of people would answer yes to that. I'm agnostic on the issue.
But televised beauty pageants were arguably the ancestors of the now dominant "American Idol" type of TV programming.
And there are still no doubt millions of people who are "into" them, including many women who should be respected for being smart enough to know whether or not such pageants demean and marginalize them.
So it's worth noting that there's a new Miss America. Her name is Caressa Cameron (that given name would work for a new car model) and she was Miss Virginia before being elevated by the judges who included Rush Limbaugh. The contest was carried Saturday night on TLC, the cable channel.
She's African American, a fact that seems barely worth mentioning anymore since the pageant has crowned other Miss Americas of color since 1984 when Vanessa Williams became the first African American to win the contest.
The Washington Post's Reliable Source reports that Cameron is from Fredericksburg, Va but was something of a carpetbagger, moving around Virginia in order to find the right springboard to propel her to the Miss Virginia title.
Cameron doesn't appear to have the strongest Beltway bona fides: She was crowned Miss Arlington last year -- but like so many pageant pros, her big win came only after jumping around from local pageant to local pageant (Springfield, Hanover County, Chesterfield County) in her four-year quest to win the state crown.

And NPR and a lot of other outlets seem to be going out of their way to insult the young woman, "Her name is Caressa Cameron (that given name would work for a new car model)", "Cameron is from Fredericksburg, Va but was something of a carpetbagger," and one article supposedly about Ms. Cameron was really all about how her predecessor got engaged the night before this 2010 pageant. Noting that Rush Limbaugh was one of the judges man also have been intended as insult...

I'm still irritated by what happened to Williams. I stopped my subscription to omni because of that.
