Paris Hilton for President?

Normally Paris Hilton gets under my skin and I really have no respect for the woman whatsoever. However, that being said, the latest YouTube “campaign” video she released endorsing herself for President I found to be quite hilarious.

In case you haven’t seen it, take a gander below:

The ad from Hilton was in response to this McCain ad:

I was quite disgusted that McCain would use images of Britney Spears and Paris Hilton to begin with when trying to paint Obama as a liberal celebrity. Clearly those two women don’t have all their ducks in a row and seem to be missing a few marbles from the bag, if you get my drift.

The Hilton ad, however, is pretty funny. I do agree with some of her positions such as leaving a high carbon footprint by flying to Maui for the best tan. Her bipartisan energy plan makes sense as well along with the tax incentives for auto makers. In fact, her positions may be clearer than the actual candidate’s positions. Of course, I also support painting the White House pink but anyone who knows me probably already knew that.

I’m not the only one who found it provocative, according to Fox News it’s been picked up by a congressman who mentioned Paris Hilton during a debate:

Move over T. Boone Pickens. It’s Paris Hilton’s turn to steer the energy debate.

Texas Rep. Michael Burgess gave the socialite unexpected clout in the raging policy feud on Capitol Hill on Thursday, urging colleagues to consider the energy plan she proposed in a mock campaign ad.

“Even Paris Hilton had an energy plan that she’s talking about,” Burgess told reporters, as he and other House Republicans continued to protest Democrats who blocked a vote on offshore oil drilling before breaking for a five-week recess.

“Well, let’s bring up the Paris Hilton plan,” Burgess said.

There may have been just a trace of sincerity to that.

McCain and Obama are both boring, I think I’ve found my candidate.
