As a product of the South Carolina public school system, I would like to say that this is an unfortunate and exceptional representation of what our beautiful state’s residents are like. And as someone who has competed in many beauty pagents, which I am not, I would like to say that there’s a lot of pressure on you when you’re on stage and forced to think on your feet.

Marko- Don’t know if you saw the MTV video awards last night but she was on it making fun of herself. She sort of did a reenactment as she was introducing something. You could tell she was reading off of the prompter which made it even more funny.

i ask myself, what would i be saying if she was a girl in my youth group? what kind of love and grace would i show her? don’t get me wrong, i love a good laugh, but she put herself out there in a vulnerable spot.
Honestly, I think that I uh in the Iraq, I um you know in the U.S. that I uh……………..
