BRAVO ASHLEY DURHAM!


Let’s meet this lovely young lady.











Ashley Durham would be the talk of the entire planet today, except...

Except...

Except...

Hard to believe...

She came in second in a beauty pageant.

Ashley Durham is Miss Tennessee.

Last night in Las Vegas...

Uh one...





Uh two...

Ashley Durham might have finished runner-up but she's #1 in my heart.




Given that Miss Texas is on the left, by process of elimination, Miss Tennessee, Miss Durham is on the right.

You know how these pageants work. The contestants just don't strut, although that would be fine with yours truly. They are required to actually speak. That means ultra-liberal judges provide the questions aimed to make the recipients stumble and stammer and violate the unwritten PC rules.
Durham answered a question from celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito about whether the First Amendment should protect burning religious books, as it protects burning the flag.

"I know that some people view it as a freedom of speech, however, burning the American flag is not patriotic at all," Durham said. "No American citizen should do that, and you should also respect other religions. I'm a Christian and a faithful person. I would personally not appreciate someone burning the Bible, and that's just a line you do not cross."

Did her answer cost her the title? I'll bet it did.

God bless you, Ashley Durham.
