Miss Quoting of 2010

I’m not sure that it matters what a California beauty queen thinks about same-sex marriage — it’s not like she’s going to get a lot of offers from gay men anyway — and I really don’t think there’s anything wrong with letting Miss Beverly Hills Lauren Ashley express her opinion about it. But if she is going to cavalierly toss off a biblical death sentence from Leviticus, she at least ought to consider the fact that she might also be asking for divine retribution for herself and a lot of other people.

That gives me an excuse to run one of my favorite scenes from The West Wing:


And as Alvin at Pam’s place notes, “if she truly followed Leviticus, she wouldn’t be half bare-assed on a stage seeking a beauty crown.”
