Miss Michigan crowned as Miss USA - Arab-American, Muslim immigrant wins (captions needed)
MSNBC ^ | 5/16/10 | staff

Posted on 05/17/2010 4:26:16 AM PDT by reaganrevolutionin2010

LAS VEGAS - A 24-year-old Arab American from Michigan beat out 50 other women to take the 2010 Miss USA title Sunday night, despite stumbling in her evening gown.

Rima Fakih of Dearborn, Mich., won the pageant at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip after strutting confidently in an orange and gold bikini, wearing a strapless white gown that resembled a wedding dress and saying health insurance should cover birth control pills.

When asked how she felt about winning the crown, she said, "Ask me after I've had a pizza."

"During the interview portion, Fakih was asked whether she thought birth control should be paid for by health insurance. "I believe that birth control is just like every other medication even though it's a controlled substance," Fakih said."

Not surprising that a muslim would think of birth control - which effectively destroys a life in the making - as 'medication'.

A muslim from Dearbornistan? Imagine that. At least she has the dumb-bimbo intellect to go with the crown. And then again, if you're muslim, isn't entering a beauty contest heretical?

Woolard handled the night's toughest question, about Arizona's new immigration law. Woolard said she supports the 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.

And she's hot!

Some Lebanese reportage...

Lebanese-American from Michigan Crowned Miss USA

From the link....

Fakih, a Lebanese immigrant, told pageant organizers her family celebrates both Muslim and Christian faiths.

I heard on the radio she nearly tripped and fell over her gown, and yet she won.

I’m betting on a fix, too.

You need captions? Why?

Even Rush said the Miss USA pageant is meaningless, just a swimsuit crapola.

We have family and friends who honor more than one religion in their homes. I just thought it was interesting that I hadn’t seen that reported anywhere else.

Being crowned “Miss USA” involves about as much talent as being crowned a Champion Hen at a 4-H county fair.

“who honor more than one religion in their homes”

which religions? Islam denies the deity of Jesus Christ. And there are thousand other extremely important things. If someone claims to “honor” both, they are a liar, or an insane person.

In all honesty, I started watching at the final 5 and thought she was going to take it. I wasn't following the contest and had no idea she was Arab. In fact, I highly prefer blondes.

The questions were clearly political nonsense and didn't sway me either way.

I wouldn't turn down the other 4 girls and might even prefer them from photos, but she had something special about her presence and personality.

What if I had I known she was Arab before I started watching? It would be interesting to know but I'll never find out.

And then again, if you're muslim, isn't entering a beauty contest heretical?

That was my thought exactly. Will her family stone her in shame now if she gets raped by a family member who sees the racy pictures?

"Let’s get a list of judges and check out their political persuasion."

One was Oscar Nunez, the "token hispanic" on that tv show "The Office". During the interview, he asked his own questrion to Miss OK, and it was about whether she thought AZ's new immigration law was fair. Some in the audience started booing him before he got halfway through the question.

Another judge was figure skater Johnny Weir - as gay as the day is long, and he thrives on attention and controsversy. 'Nuff said.
