Dressing Miss California

Sorry, I haven’t been following this Miss California story that closely — until I came upon this photo of Donald Trump and the winner of his pageant. Let’s see, the mega-real estate and casino mogul bought Miss USA, right?

So, besides Miss Prejean becoming the conservative poster child of the week, by virtue of the current right-wing leadership vacuum (and the lingering wingnut propensity for culture war), what’s all this business about her taking her clothes off, and isn’t the Donald here — wearing that overdone look of nonchalance — creating the perfect piece of slapstick with the mock dressing of his doll?
