I agree with the first part of this, but as to the "PC police" comment...you do realize that no legitimate presidential candidate has ever been publicly in favor of gay marraige, right? And save for a few states, no legitimate Senate candidate either. Why do you think that is? The "PC" stance is generally (and very much dependant on geography) to either oppose it outright, or say marriage should be between a man and a woman, but be in favor of domestic partnerships. Being staunchly in favor of full gay marriage rights is essentially the opposite of "PC."
However, I do appreciate someone being honest and having the courage of their convictions, regardless of what it may cost them, even if I disagree vehemently with their convictions. I'd much rather someone give an honest responce and stand by it, even if I think it is a bigoted and disgusting opinion, than see someone lie or otherwise falsely represent themselves for personal gain.
Also, beauty pageants are ridiculous. I'd like to see the titles "Miss America," "Miss USA," and "Miss Universe" all go the way of the dodo. Might as well throw "Queen of England" in there, too.
