Just last week, we told you how dethroned Miss California Carrie Prejean — maybe you’ve heard a little about her — spoke at the Value Voters Summit in D.C. As usual, she was peppering her language with baubles of high-minded moralism like there was some kind of Skinner Box treat in it for her.
This is brought up only to once again contrast her very-official public persona with yet another round of racy photos that have just found their way into the media bloodstream. Just in time for meta-Halloween, you can don the sexy costume of a conservative Christian girl wearing a sexy costume. TMZ stumbled onto the pictures, which were taken for the Woman of Marvel costume line.
You’ll remember that Prejean’s enemies hit the Schadenfreude jackpot back in May when topless pictures of the supposedly ultra-religious beauty queen made the rounds. Donald Trump refused to fire her as Miss California at that time but rethought that position a month later. Prejean’s ascension from half-naked model and pageant contestant to inadvertent right-wing golden child began when she spoke out against gay marriage at the Miss USA pageant last April.
