Bette Midler Turns Miss Universe Gaffe Into Memorable Jab At Dubya

Last night during the most bizarro Miss Universe pageant ever, Bette Midler found the humor in host Steve Harvey accidentally naming Miss Colombia as the winner only to have to step up and announce he’d misread and Miss Philippines had won the crown and sash. These things happen. Well, not usually, but Midler remembered a similar occurrence 15 years ago that haunts us to this very day.

The Divine One is going to make the coming election year much more tolerable.
