Did Miss Utah's Response Make Any Sense To You?

Beauty pageants can be pretty tough. Not only do these women have to be beautiful and wear sparkly clothes, but they also have to have coherent opinions about the world on top of it all! It's no wonder so many fumble, especially on the "voicing your opinions" part.
This year's winner for "worst pageant answer" goes to Miss USA contestant Marissa Powell a.k.a Miss Utah, who was asked this question by celebrity judge Nene Leakes:
"A recent report shows that in 40 percent of American families with children, women are the primary earners, yet they continue to earn less than men. What does this say about society?"
This was Miss Utah's response, word for word:
"I think we can relate this back to education, and how we are … continuing to try to strive to [long pause] figure out how to create jobs right now. That is the biggest problem. And I think, especially the men are … um … seen as the leaders of this, and so we need to try to figure out how to create education better so we can solve this problem. Thank you."
...What? Did any of that make sense? I've been sitting here trying to figure out where she was going with this. Something about if education were better, there'd be more jobs? Furthermore, men are the leaders of...education? Is that really what she said? That still doesn't really get to the root of the problem. In her defense however, it is true that we must figure out how to "create education better." In fact, she is a perfect example of this.
