Arizona law comes up in miss usa pageant

Surprising. I was watching the pageant with my wife and three daughters (I think these competitions are probably mostly aimed at women viewers and not men). During the interview segment with the last five contestants, Miss Oklahoma was asked her opinion of SB1070. The Arizona Daily Star summed it up:

Arizona's controversial new immigration law hit the pageant
circuit Sunday when a 2010 Miss USA contestant was asked about SB
1070.

Miss Oklahoma USA Morgan Elizabeth Woolard told judges she
supports the new law, which requires police enforcing another law
to verify a person's immigration status if there's "reasonable
suspicion" that the person is in the country illegally.

She said she's against illegal immigration but is also against
racial profiling.

"I'm a huge believer in states' rights. I think that's what's so
wonderful about America. So I think it's perfectly fine for Arizona
to create that law."

Apparently, the answer didn't impress the judges to the extent needed to win. The charming Miss Michigan, Rima Fakih, won after she answered a question regarding whether health insurance reform should have mandated the inclusion of birth control pills in all health policies (she answered yes without equivocation). If Rima doesn't sound like the typical pageant winner's name, it's because Rima is the first Arab-American to win the competition and also the first Muslim-American. She's the daughter of Lebanese immigrants.

    Too bad conservative extremists such as Michelle Malkin are discrediting her by all means.

    I think one issue that is really circulating is that she is a Hezbollah member. Really outrageous.
