Paris for President?

Well, check out her energy policy.

Yep, you read that right. In a two-minute online video posted last night on the comedy site FunnyorDie.com, Paris Hilton announced her candidacy -- thanks to Sen. John McCain's "Celeb" ad comparing Sen. Barack Obama to Paris and Britney Spears -- and boasts an energy policy that should make every screenwriter proud. Though her parents have contributed to the Republican senator, Paris is no McCainiac. (The ad begins with a voice-over referring to McCain as the "oldest celebrity in the world," before cutting to a photo of the senior citizens of "The Golden Girls.") But she's not for Obama, either. True to form, she's all about Paris. She wants pop star Rihanna as her vice president and might paint the White House pink.

You go girl! Interesting how much better a spokesperson she is for herself than John McCain is for anything!

Is she ready to lead?
Look at the guts she showed by producing this video. She beats the hell out of McCain.

The McCain campaign had better stick to using dead celebrities who cannot defend themselves. C. Heston was a nice touch.

....New RNC/GOP Theme Song.....

I don't know what they have to say,
It makes no difference anyway --
Whatever it is, I'm against it!
No matter what it is or who commenced it,
I'm against it.

Your proposition may be good
But let's have one thing understood --
Whatever it is, I'm against it!
And even when you've changed it or condensed it,
I'm against it.

I'm opposed to it --
On general principles I'm opposed to it!

Chorus: He's opposed to it!
In fact, in word, in deed,
He's opposed to it!

For months before my son was born,
I used to yell from night till morn,
Whatever it is, I'm against it!
And I've kept yelling since I commenced it,
I'm against it!

From the 1932 film Horse Feathers...
With the Marx Brothers...

Note: ..if you look at the musical scene to the song way in the back of the extras you'll see McCaint holding a yardstick......

Who do you think she'll siphon votes away from? Given her excellent energy policy, I can't wait to hear how she'll handle Iran.

I think she'd handle Iran just fine...because she seems to know how to hire the right people! The ad was brilliant. In a few years, when she's actually old enough to run for President (minimum age is 35, I believe), she'd make just as viable a candidate as what's running now. She's certainly wealthy enough, and has plenty of charm when she wants to. She can ferret out the best in ad writers, she's got a chance of winning an election these days. She also has the world connections it seems to take to be heard. Stranger things have happened. Meanwhile, my advice to her is to enjoy her youth and not look back, whatever it takes.
Go for broke. It's all over when the hormone clocks start running down, so if you are going to do it, do it now.
