Miss North Carolina USA Kristen Dalton was crowned Miss USA last night. "It feels really natural," Dalton said. "I've worked so be here and this has been my lifelong dream and it's finally here. And whoever knew you could win in a turquoise gown?" First runner-up Miss California, may have blown her chances when she bungled an answer about gay marriage. "We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage," Miss California said. "And you know what, I think in my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anybody out there, but that's how I was raised." According to the Associated Press, “The answer sparked a shouting match in the lobby after the show.” Said one man in attendance, “That is not the value of 95 percent of the people in this audience. Look around this audience and tell me how many gay men there are."
