Wow, you know who's freaking-the-fuck out? George Mason, that's who. While a staunch republican, e.g., defender of individual liberties, I don't quite think he anticipated that the institution bearing his name would do this.
That's right, meet Mr. Ryan Allen, a senior at GMU who won homecoming queen. What are some of the best parts of his schtick?
Soon he had donned a silver bra and zebra-print pants and was lip-syncing to Britney Spears's "Womanizer" at the qualifying pageant Feb. 9, overseen by Miss Virginia 2009. Competitors included a government and politics major from Chesapeake and a Chi Omega sorority member. . . .
Needless to say, the appointment has been controversial. Well, Mr. Allen, I for one don't give a damned if you're gay, or if this was all a lark: If anything it exposes the idiocy that these dog-n-pony shows really are. Enjoy your crown, bring a hankie, and remember "elbow-elbow-arm-arm"
