Dan Flynn's Take on Perez Hilton

Dan Flynn on the Californication controversy:

The controversy here maybe should be that Perez Hilton injected politics into a beauty pageant; that Perez Hilton intolerantly berated a contestant for supplying an answer that differs from his desired answer; that Perez Hilton judged a beauty contest based on a contestant's position on a moral question that he is obsessed with; or that Perez Hilton was invited to be a judge at a beauty pageant where the contestants didn't have to duct tape their genitals. The controversy shouldn't be that a pageant contestant gave an uncontroversial answer to a question on gay marriage. Would this have been news had she answered that she disagreed with the majority of her state and supported gay marriage?
