NEW YORK CITY— While cable news channels have been obsessing over the self styled Perez Hilton and his one man bitch slap at Miss California, Miss New York has made the Empire State proud.
Miss New York, Leigh-Taylor Smith, had sent out some blog love to our embattled Governor and the gays before all the kerfuffle between the hollywood gossip maven and the family-values spoutin runner-up in Sunday's Miss USA contest.
"I know this is a bit overdue but ... three cheers for Governor Patterson introducing legislation in support of gay marriage. I have had the opportunity to meet with the Governor twice. The first time was when he spoke at the National Press Club in Washington,DC about the status of our economy in July. Genius. Two months later, we all needed a sneak peek to that conference. The second time I spoke with him was when I was invited to attend the State of the State Address in Albany.
I am proud that he supports what I hope to be the essence of our country, outlined and maintained by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, ratified by the UN in 1948."
The first section of the Preamble simply stating:
"Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world..."
Congrats to our Miss New York who may have come in third at the Miss USA contest but will forever be contestant number one in our hearts
