Who saw the coming of the War of the Beauties? Someone should go look at pics of the crowd and see if they can spot Roy Moore ogling Alabama’s beauty contestant – in the name of Jesus! Then there is this strange Vanity Fair thing. Everything is turning into the pages form The National Enquirer. I might go back to my art and get out of the news business.
One thing is for sure, the Evangelical Red State Menace is in no position to export Religious Sanity to all parts of God’s Green Earth!
“She won the Miss America competition on a platform of child sexual abuse awareness and prevention.”
Mallory Hytes Hagan (born December 23, 1988) is an American actress, model and beauty queen who won Miss America 2013 and Miss New York 2012. She was also Miss New York City 2012, Miss Manhattan 2011, Miss Brooklyn 2010, and a two-time Miss New York first runner-up. She is a native of Opelika, Alabama, where she had been runner-up in the Miss Alabama’s Outstanding Teen Program, and a non-finalist talent winner at Miss Alabama. She won the Miss America competition on a platform of child sexual abuse awareness and prevention.

Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore said a lie detector test taken after the Dec. 12 special election proves allegations of sexual misconduct against him are false.
Moore’s campaign submitted an affidavit on the polygraph tests as part of a suit seeking to block today’s planned certification of the election results that show Democrat Doug Jones defeating Moore by more than 20,000 votes. Moore’s suit claims voter fraud; Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill says the certification will proceed as planned.
The documents from Moore’s campaign said the former Alabama Chief Justice took the polygraph test “within days” after the Dec. 12 election but more than a month after allegations he had improper sexual contact with teenage girls in the 1970s were first reported. The affidavit references three accusers: Leigh Corfman, Beverly Nelson and Tina Johnson.
Vanity Fair has apologized for its controversial humor video offering Hillary Clinton advice. The video suggested New Year’s resolutions for Clinton such as taking up knitting or other hobbies, but it prompted backlash from many viewers who saw it as sexist. And in a backlash to the backlash, President Trump sent a tweet Thursday morning blasting the magazine for its apology.
In a statement on Wednesday, Vanity Fair said of the video, “It was an attempt at humor and we regret that it missed the mark.”
The video was from Vanity Fair’s business and politics page, Hive, and showed editors holding champagne toasts as they made suggestions for what Clinton should do in 2018.
One editor said Clinton could write a sequel to her book, “What Happened,” titled, “What the Hell Happened.” Most notably, one female editor said, “Take up a new hobby in the new year. Volunteer work, knitting, improv comedy … literally anything that will keep you from running again.”
Another jab included telling Clinton to let go of her resentments toward James Comey.
