Alabama Native Wins Miss America As Miss New York

Miss America 2013 Mallory Hytes Hagan left her native Alabama for New York at age 18

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A woman from Brooklyn, N.Y., is the new Miss America, winning the title after tap dancing to a James Brown tune, deftly dealing with a question about guns, and raising the issue of child sexual abuse in her contestant platform.

In addition to dancing to "Get Up Off of That Thing," 23-year-old Mallory Hagan strutted down the runway during the Las Vegas pageant Saturday night in an asymmetrical white gown and donned a revealing black string bikini.

She won a $50,000 college scholarship and a year as an instant celebrity and role model to many girls as she defeated Miss South Carolina Ali Rogers, who took second, and Miss Oklahoma Alicia Clifton, who finished third.

She told The Associated Press in an interview after her win that it was her mother who encouraged her to tackle the issue of child sex abuse in her platform — the issue she will promote during her reign.

She is pretty, but also seems kind of cookie cutter.

she is lucky I was not a judge.. I don’t think she is all that. When she opened her mouth and started spewing the liberal dribble the judges wanted to hear that was the end of it for me.

Ya, when asked about having armed guards or police in schools, she said that we shouldn’t fight violence with violence. She’s liberal all right.

What’s up with that? They didn’t ask the homosexual marriage question this time, in order to create a media fury that somebody could oppose homosexual marriage in this enlightened day and age???????

Even if she was told to ignore her true beliefs to appease the judges because “it’s the only way to win” she lost a TON of ground in my book.

I have decided.

I shall not shave nor bath until Honey Boo Boo is Miss America.

If Moosechelle becomes Miss America I shall not shave nor bath ever again.

I agree. I was disappointed. It's sad but she knew what to say to win.

All our kids have been indoctrinated that way these days.

My son is 44, a PhD, went to school in Texas and he still has a tad of it himself.

I thought it an interesting coincidence that this Alabama girl won after all the 'going's on' about Miss Alabama at the BCS championship game recently.

She is 23 now, left AL for Brooklyn at age 18, but managed to graduate from Auburn? Something doesn’t really add up.

Oops! You're correct. Here's what my local Alabama newspaper says:

" She grew up in Opelika and attended Auburn University, but now lives in Park Slope, Brooklyn."

Probably a good idea to leave Alabama if she doesn’t support gun ownership.

So? If Misses Clinton can run as Senator of New York, what is wrong with this girl doing what she did?

I saw her post victory interview. She seems very classy and articulate to me. One thing that makes sense now to me — She certainly did not sound like a “New Yawka” to me. I know because I used to live there.

But Mrs. Clinton should not, ethically, run for Senator of New York. Legal and ethical are not the same thing. And I am sad to hear this Miss America was raised in Opelika, less than ten miles from where I now reside. What on earth would make her want to live in Brooklyn, of all the God-forsaken places? I was not born nor raised in the South, but I would choose nearly anywhere in it over Brooklyn. And yes, I went once and saw Brooklyn. They have good pizza. That is my positive comment on Brooklyn.
