Rachel Campos-Duffy On The View Discuss Perez Hilton's Past Judging Role

The View on Monday, October 12, 2009 had conservative Republican television personality Rachel Campos-Duffy as a guest co-hostess.

During the hot topics portion of the show Whoopi Goldberg brought up the fact that Rush Limbaugh has recently been announced as a judge on the Miss America Pageant for 2010.

Rachel Campos-Duffy said that she believed that politics should be taken out of the mix of events like the Miss America Pageant and other related events.

Obviously Rush Limbaugh is a political hot potato at the current time.  The question is if people don't agree with Rush's political views will they watch the pageant?  Or will his position as a judge hurt the campaign and cause viewers to stay away in droves from watching or supporting the pageant?

Which brings up the thought that politics should be kept out of events such as the Miss America Pageant and the Miss USA Pageant.

Rachel Campos-Duffy pointed out that Perez Hilton, whose name she didn't immediately remember, brought politics into the Miss USA Pageant last Spring with the question he asked.

Joy Behar pointed out Perez simply asked a question.  Rachel pointed out that Perez called Carrie Prejean, the original Miss USA 2009 winner, "the C world" because she didn't agree with his politics based on her answer and he called her the C word "on camera" for all to see.  She pointed out that colored the campaign during the Miss USA pageant.

Will the presence of Rush Limbaugh who is known for his controversial political opinions be a good thing or a bad thing for The Miss America pageant?  What do you think?  Should politics be taken out of The Miss America Pageant and other similar events?

Daily Hair Tip
For a low maintenance style, try to work with your natural hair type rather than against it. For example, if your hair is naturally wavy, select a hairstyle that works easily with the waves.
