Miss America Contestant Asked Question About Sarah Palin

Just how widespread is Palin Derangement Syndrome?

Well, during Saturday's "Miss America Pageant," one of the contestants was actually asked a question about Sarah Palin.

Maybe even more delicious, the question was factually inaccurate.

I kid you not.

Las Vegas Weekly reported Saturday (video embedded below the fold):

The questions for the Q&A segment were asked by purportedly randomly chosen people, and a young woman asked Miss New York, Leigh-Taylor Smith, "During the presidential campaign, the media made a big deal about Sarah Palin being a Miss America contestant. Do you think that was fair?" Wrong! Palin, as Miss Wasilla, was a Miss Alaska contestant and didn't advance to The Show ... 

Don't you hate it when people don't know the facts about past beauty pageants?

Sheesh. Get a life, ma'am.
