Miss California Joins Marriage Crusade

Did Joe the Plumber speak over your head? Good news: Miss California Carrie Prejean declared this morning on the Today show that she will begin working with the National Organization for Marriage to “protect traditional marriages.” The 21-year-old, who is unmarried, said that marriage is “something that is very dear to my heart.” She was runner-up in the Miss USA pageant earlier this month, and many say she lost because of an answer in which she came out against gay marriage.
