Breaking news. Pageant racist. Jackson headed to FL.
The one they took it away from looks to have much grace.

When, Oh Lord, will Floridians learn to count?
My measure of a blonde beauty is Grace Kelly.
So, how bout some pictures, so WE can judge...
The story in the at link has a few interesting bits of info that add a little more to the story...

Massachusetts is mocking a state?
Hanging Chad strikes Floriduh again —
In layman's terms, it was fixed.
That’s not a bad thing is it?
