Miss California to run for US senate
In a move that is sure to make California politics more entertaining than usual, anti-gay rights activist, breast implant charity recipient and current Miss California, Carrie Prejean, is making a bid to extend her 15 minutes of fame by challenging Barbara Boxer for her senate seat in the 2010 election. Miss California said she would be running as the Republican nominee since it is the party that most closely reflects her views on gays, god and breast implants.
Calling herself a simple girl with simple-minded values, the Miss America runner-up said she would go to Washington to work tirelessly to restore America to its Christian roots but that nonbelievers should not be afraid of her because she is a compassionate person who will "tolerate those who are going to burn in hell for eternity."
Miss California also made it clear that the severe economic problems facing the country will be near the top of her agenda when she stated that "any stimulus package that passes while I am in Congress will include free breast implants for every girl over the age of 17 and if that doesn't arouse the economy out of its limp state then I don't know what a stimulus package is."
Concerning the recent uproar over her nude photos, Miss California showed her political acumen by cleverly attempting to turn the controversy into an advantage by saying, "Who would the public rather see nude, me or Barbara Boxer?"
Interest in the election is expected to be high and talks are already underway to offer the Miss California/Barbara Boxer debates on Pay Per View.
