Olbermann Guest Likens Miss California to Nazi Doll, Makes Crude Sexual Jokes

On Thursday’s Countdown show, Michael Musto of the Village Voice made an appearance to help MSNBC host Keith Olbermann lambast Miss California, Carrie Prejean, because of her expression of opposition to same-sex marriage. After Olbermann set up the segment by revealing that Prejean had received breast implants paid for by the Miss California organization, Musto made a number of crude sexual jokes, and even cracked that she was like a "Klaus Barbie Doll," presumably a reference to Nazi war criminal Klaus Barbie, who was a Gestapo officer responsible for thousands of deaths during World War II.

Referring to the Miss California organization, Musto cracked: "They also paid for Carrie to cut off her penis, and sand her Adam`s Apple and get a head to toe waxing. I know for a fact that Carrie Prejean was Harry Prejean, a homophobic man, who liked marriage so much, he did it three times. Now he`s a babe who needs a brain implant. Maybe they could inject some fat from her butt. Oh, they have?

After introducing the segment informing viewers of Prejean’s breast implants, Olbermann began his discussion with Musto, "Miss California is opposed to same-sex marriage, which is at least marriage between two human beings, but she has fully endorsed now marriage between a man and a woman who's partially made out of plastic," prompting Musto to respond: "Well, she's dumb and twisted. She`s sort of like a human Klaus Barbie Doll."

Musto soon added: "This is the kind of girl who sits on the TV and watches the sofa. You know, she thinks innuendo is an Italian suppository."

Olbermann further slammed Prejean’s intelligence as he called her a "fake boob," and claimed that she makes Perez Hilton look like an "intellectual titan": "Perez Hilton looks like an intellectual titan and some sort of civil rights leader. And the new poster girl against same-sex marriage is not just a boob, but a fake boob. This is a real win for this cause, is it not?"

Musto soon charged that the matter was trivial compared to President Bush committing "international war crimes": "I`d say dethrone her, but we couldn`t even get rid of Bush, couldn`t impeach him for international war crimes. We're supposed to get rid of some beauty contestant for having falsies and an opinion? Let her deflate, as it were, and just let her keep going, and, eventually, she`ll just be looking for a husband who wants the only virgin in the world with breast implants."

Musto then added to the sexual crudeness: "This has escalated to a public shaving. I mean, and what Moakler has left out, Keith, is that they also paid for Carrie to cut off her penis, and sand her Adam`s Apple and get a head to toe waxing. I know for a fact that Carrie Prejean was Harry Prejean, a homophobic man, who liked marriage so much, he did it three times. Now he`s a babe who needs a brain implant. Maybe they could inject some fat from her butt. Oh, they have?"

Below is a complete transcript of the segment from the Thursday, April 30, Countdown show on MSNBC:

KEITH OLBERMANN: After going rogue at the Miss USA Pageant, Miss California Carrie Prejean was enjoying her new title as self-anointed champion of opposite marriage. Pageant officials, though, are now retaliating. They`ve outed her for having breast implants. Our number one story, Miss California now being accused of using performance enhancers. The good news is this increases her chances of dating Alex Rodriguez some day. The Miss California organization`s co-executive director Shanna Moakler claiming that not only did Miss Prejean get breast implants, but that the Miss California Organization paid for them. "Breast implants in pageants is not a rarity. It`s very common. I don`t personally have them," she said, "but, you know, they are."

Adding a little saline to that wound, Miss California USA pageant officials also released this statement, "We are deeply saddened Carrie Prejean has forgotten her platform of the Special Olympics, her commitment to all Californians, and solidified her legacy as one that goes beyond the right to voice her beliefs, and instead reveals her opportunistic agenda." Today, Miss Prejean, head held high, while channeling her inner and partly silicone Anita Bryant, joining forces with the National Organization for Marriage`s campaign against same sex marriage. After being praised for choosing truth over a tiara, Miss Prejean was asked about the implant imbroglio.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: How do you respond to the personal attacks that the Miss California Organization is going against you, I mean, going on Access Hollywood and talking about, you know, breast implants?

CARRIE PREJEAN, MISS CALIFORNIA: I have no comment for that. Next question?

OLBERMANN: Looking for a cue card? Joining me now, columnist for the Village Voice, and author of La Dolce Musto, Michael Musto. Good evening, Michael.

MICHAEL MUSTO, THE VILLAGE VOICE: Next question?

OLBERMANN: So, yeah, no, all I said was good evening.

MUSTO: Oh, okay.

OLBERMANN: Yeah. There it is here, Miss California is opposed to same-sex marriage, which is at least marriage between two human beings, but she has fully endorsed now marriage between a man and a woman who’s partially made out of plastic.

MUSTO: Well, she’s dumb and twisted. She`s sort of like a human Klaus Barbie Doll. I mean, you tell Perez Hilton you’re against gay marriage. That`s like telling Simon Cowell you`re against screeching a show tune. This is the kind of girl who sits on the TV and watches the sofa. You know, she thinks innuendo is a Italian suppository. Can I keep going? On the pageants now, they really should have easier questions, like, "What’s your middle name?" Or, "What show was Seinfeld on?" I mean, this girl is a ding dong. I didn`t even like her earrings.

OLBERMANN: The cruelest cut of all. The outcomes here, too. Perez Hilton looks like an intellectual titan and some sort of civil rights leader. And the new poster girl against same-sex marriage is not just a boob, but a fake boob. This is a real win for this cause, is it not?

MUSTO: Well, Perez is the new me. Let`s leave him alone. And using the C word is something I would do. But yeah, Carrie Prejean, however you say it, she’s getting something off her chest. But what she really needs to get off is the price tag there, you know. And in the meantime, she`s ratcheting up so much sympathy for the gay movement, she might as well be a paid spokesmodel for them. You know, I`d say dethrone her, but we couldn`t even get rid of Bush, couldn`t impeach him for international war crimes. We’re supposed to get rid of some beauty contestant for having falsies and an opinion? Let her deflate, as it were, and just let her keep going, and, eventually, she`ll just be looking for a husband who wants the only virgin in the world with breast implants.

OLBERMANN: Now, the moral in this is what, never cross a beauty pageant official who knows you’ve had implants?

MUSTO: Yes, exactly, that`s it. This has escalated to a public shaving. I mean, and what Moakler has left out, Keith, is that they also paid for Carrie to cut off her penis, and sand her Adam`s Apple and get a head to toe waxing. I know for a fact that Carrie Prejean was Harry Prejean, a homophobic man, who liked marriage so much, he did it three times. Now he`s a babe who needs a brain implant. Maybe they could inject some fat from her butt. Oh, they have?

OLBERMANN: Kind of lost in this, Michael, this claim by Shanna Moakler, who herself was Miss USA, was in Playboy, that implants are commonplace in pageants. I mean, Congress went crazy over artificial performance enhancements in baseball. Should there not be congressional hearings into this, as well?

MUSTO: Wait, you are telling me a lot of beauty contestants are fake? Oh, next, you`re going to tell me their personalities are artificial, too. But yes, I do think there should be congressional hearings into this. Congress should wash their hands with Purell, get together in a big enclosed room, and decide how all of this is like baseball. Though when I look at Carrie Prejean, I think of basketball, don`t you?

OLBERMANN: Yeah, maybe, maybe softball. You said personality, personality. There’s no personality in this, is there, in these pageants?

MUSTO: No, I said a brain implant. There`s no talent. There`s no personality. There`s just parading down the runway like a ding dong, trying to cure cancer and find the right handbag to match her navel. It`s so obsolete, it has to be stopped. But I watch it every year.

OLBERMANN: Well, there it is, your guilty pleasure. The one and only Michael Musto of the Village Voice. As always, good to talk to you, Michael.

MUSTO: Thank you.
