Last night 17-year-old Miss Nebraska, Teresa Scanlan, became the youngest woman to ever win the Miss America pageant. Good for her! She’s going to go to college (after she defers a year to properly fulfill her principle duty of signing autographs at county shopping malls and car shows) to become a politician, and the last time someone did that we ended up with Sarah Palin. So that’s good.
Well hey, not to hate, cuz the girl can play a mean version of Chopsticks.
Teresa is also under some fire this morning for her controversial stance on Wikileaks, but honestly, we’re just impressed. Laugh all you want, how many high-school age prom queens do you know who could tell you about the national security risk that the free information site poses? Maybe we just have really low standards, but honestly, compare Teresa’s response with that of Miss California Carrie Prejean‘s answer from 2009.
Improvement? Sure, why not. At least this way when Teresa’s inevitable sex tape/nude pics surface on the web, she can just blame Julian Assange.
