Before we get into it, let me just assure you that I will most likely never mention the name “Carrie Prejean” here again. But this is too good to pass up, so just this once. Probably. Unless she does something really buckwild again.
Yesterday, former Miss California and notorious nutjob Carrie Prejean (Am I the only one who calls her “Carrie Beforejean” in my head?) took to the “stage” at Del Mar Race Track in SoCal for their traditional “Sing With Bing” opening ceremony. You see, the track got the name for their musical number from the legendary Bing Crosby who was a co-founder of the track and writer of their anthem “Where the Turf Meets The Surf”. And, giving the late-singer the reverence he deserves, they’ll hand the mic over to just about any famewhore who’s willing to be seen there, including the equality-hating Prejean.
What’s sad about this clip, other than its existence, is the teeter-tottering blond staring blankly for what feels like an eternity into the crowd of on-lookers before she kicks off her rendition of the somewhat-legendary song. And then the singing, the God awful singing. The singing that makes me want to research what her talent portion of the Miss America pageant was, but frankly I don’t care enough. Miss. Prejean was not meant to sing, not one bit. But alas, she did. And now it’s on the Internet. The flip-side, however, is that we are able to use this video to help gauge what a 17 year old JonBenet Ramsey would have been like had she not been taken from us prematurely.
Too soon? Should I have waited until after lunch?
