Carrie Prejean at Values Voters: God Has "Bigger Crown for Me in Heaven" Than Trump Does
The Values Voters Summit -- held in liberal D.C. rather than in Branson, Missouri, for some reason -- kicked off this morning, and has already heard from former Miss California Carrie Prejean, whose remarks are characterized by a sympathetic Dakota Voice: "She said she was raised by parents who taught her moral values, and that she had given her life to Christ at a young age... she could not believe someone had asked that question at a USA pageant, and thought it was highly inappropriate for that venue," etc. Nonetheless she is undaunted that she lost that contest, allegedly for her anti-gay-marriage views, and was later fired by Donald Trump from her Miss Cali position, because "I know the Lord has so much of a bigger crown in heaven for me." (Perhaps Miss Universe?) "Biggest ovation of the day," reports Peter Hamby of CNN.
Also heard from at VV: Congressnut Michele Bachmann, who said Obama's health care plan "destroys the greatest health system there's every been in the world," and counseled a member of the audience who inexplicably confessed that she'd had three abortions that "there is forgiveness, there is a way forward and there is life after." Amen!
