Miss America Pageant Embraces Democracy


Sadly, the framers didn’t provide American citizens with the right to vote for Miss America, which was anti-democratic of them. But the official pageant organization has decided to let citizens Facebook-vote for their favorite contestant. America, land of the free!

More specifically, plebes get to vote on a YouTube of their favorite contestant and then somehow these votes matter to the final choice, which is still up to an elite panel of judges that includes the guy who created Desperate Housewives. Still, this is more democracy than no democracy. You’re a vital cog in an essential machine.
