Can this friendship be saved?

My BFF Sarah and I are in a doozy of a fight and would you believe it's over the Miss USA Pageant?! I said I thought Miss California, Carrie Prejean, was a moron for responding to Perez Hilton's question about gay marriage with a controversial answer that indicated she was not in support of gay marriage. Besides the fact that I don't agree with her ignorant and intolerant response, I told Sarah that Miss California failed to realize she was trying to win a contest and when doing so, it is your job as a contestant to impress the judges and to win them over. Unless she lived under a rock, Miss California had to know Perez Hilton was gay, so why not respond with a more politically correct answer? Sarah says I am the intolerant one because I do not support Miss California's right to speak her mind. Sarah says I should respect her for standing up for what she believes in. Honestly, I think little Miss California is nothing but opportunistic and is eating up all the press attention over her dumb pageant answer, and I can't believe I am actually in a fight with a friend over it. Can this friendship be saved?
