Miss USA’s stripper past



Here’s the scandal of the day:

Hours into her Miss USA tenure, Rima Fakih has her first (low-grade) scandal: a “Stripper 101” crown in college. Meanwhile, creative right-wing haters are implying, in more ways than one, that she won because of a pro-Muslim, pro-immigrant conspiracy.

That’s right, the new Miss USA, who also happens to be Muslim, was already a stripping princess. Well, actually, it was a stripper contest, but there was no stripping. It was more in the vein of Mormon moms pole dancing. At least she didn’t make a sex tape.

There is also some absurd discussion in the right-wing blogosphere of a Muslim conspiracy. This line from Debbie Schlussel is unreal:

Now, Hezbollah has the chief USA bimbo

Also of note, it’s amazing how much can be done to a Wikipedia page in a day.
