Cuban-American gossip queen/web entrepreneur Perez Hilton, aka Mario Armando Lavandeira, Jr., has caused a bit of a stir with his question to Miss California, Carrie Prejean, last night at the Miss USA pageant. I don't know what is more curious in all this--the ignorance of Miss California, painfully palpable in the first part of her response (get yee to a CSU quick) or the xicanosmotic cheekiness of "Hilton"! Cuban-Ams, who get short-shrift here in the Textmex galleryblog, are not universally noted for their iconoclastic progressiveness. All in all, a memorable night on the boob tube.
For those keeping score, Miss North Carolina USA Kristen Dalton won the night with Prejean coming in second.
