A Response to Prejean’s Firing

Maggie Gallagher, president of the National Organization for Marriage, had this to say about Carrie Prejean’s removal at Miss California USA:

“Hollywood will dance its tribal war dance over her body–the hatred generated against her has been extraordinary–but Carrie will be free to define her own mission and message from now on. Congratulations.”

The org itself issued this statement: “Hollywood hates Carrie. First they abuse her, then they try to get her to recant, then they threw mud, and now they are doing what they wanted to do from day one: Get rid of Carrie.”

Am I missing something? Outside of maybe Perez Hilton and the gossip blogs, I don’t really think of “Hollywood” as trying to get rid of her. Gay organizations may be trying to do so, but the truth is the whole spectacle of the pageant doesn’t seem to be on the radar screen of anyone in the industry I know.
