Miss USA Makes Us Proud to Not Care About Miss USA

Everyone knows I don’t like to get political on my blog, mostly because I don’t know how to get political. But I couldn’t help but make three incisive politicalsy inferences from (Miss USA) Rachel Smith’s fall last night during the evening gown portion of the Miss Universe competition:

1. Like this is really what we need right now. Miss USA falling on her butt? Could the metaphor BE any more pronounced? She may as well have slipped on a Big Mac and started an unwinnable war while she was down there.

2. She wasn’t that pretty.

3. More people probably uploaded this clip to YouTube than actually watched the broadcast or cared, in the least, about the Miss Universe Pageant. I’m not saying this is a bad thing (beauty pageants are nothing more than long, drawn out eating disorders anyway), but when did we stop caring about winning and start caring only about laughing at people? It makes me sad for the internet.

Bonus observation! All that being said, if you’re going to fall on your ass on national television, that’s the way to do it. With the music in the background, it almost looked like a dance move. In fact, if it had been a Disney movie, every other contestant would have fallen down the same way like an impromptu choreographed dance number just to make her feel better. Instead, that fall could have led directly to Miss Japan’s victory. Like sushi, revenge is a dish best served cold.

I think she handled the fall badly (having watched the video last night ... oh, about six times). She got this Absolute Fury look on her face, and then got up and acted like it never happened, even though you could see she knew she'd "fallen" out of the running.

I say she should have done something cutesy, to show how good a sport she was, like winked or some crap.

she ought to have used the fall as an opportunity to writhe on the floor in madonna 'like a virgin' mtv music video awards style.

Ok so I laughed when it happened on tv,

But now i feel sorry for the poor girl, I would have been furious too, and she got boo-ed to boot.

Poor little made up doll.

I think it would've been mildly appropriate if all of the other coutries' representatives would've rushed over and started kicking Miss USA while she was down.

Oh, cruel symbolism.

I think she should have winked too, or better yet, flashed the cameras. Nothing says "ignore that last thing" like showing your boobies to the world.

Good thing she hadn't eaten in days, that fall could have been a lot harder.

I actually kinda know her. She's dating a guy I go to law school with. I met her at a party about a year before she won Miss USA. She's nice, but kinda dim. She's attractive but not epically hot or anything. We have a pool going on how long it will take her to dump him.

I got worried when you said that the current Miss USA was not "that pretty."

I might be a guy, but I am very self conscious. So if she is not that pretty I must be horrible disfigured. Which is true. I do have a certain disfigurement. It's ok I wear a lot of hats when I go outside so almost no one notices.

Still I just don't think it's fair to pick on people just because they have some kind of balance issue.

Stick to making fun of Ugly people, because god clearly does not like ugly people, otherwise why did he make them that way.

My point exactly.
