Why Presidential Candidate Paris Hilton Should Not Endorse Obama

by | 3rd, August 2008

JOHN McCain shows a campaign video of Barack Obama and two blonde girls: Paris Hilton and Britney Spears.

Is this dog whistle politics about the black man coming for the white woman? Maybe. More likely it’s just McCain trying to be associated with people more famous than he is.

McCain is 71. Obama turns 47 today. When McCain was 47 the top celebrities – or VIPs as they were then knows – were Dave Kid Jensen, Vanessa Williams and My Little Pony.

Anyhow, Kathy Hilton, Paris’s mum, is upset. So she does what any upset Hollywood mum does and writes an article about just how upset she is and puts it online. Says she:

I’ve been asked again and again for my response to the now infamous McCain celebrity ad. I actually have three responses. It is a complete waste of the money John McCain’s contributors have donated to his campaign. It is a complete waste of the country’s time and attention at the very moment when millions of people are losing their homes and their jobs. And it is a completely frivolous way to choose the next President of the United States.

Kathy Hilton and her husband donated a total of $4,600 to McCain’s campaign earlier this year, which gives her the right to bemoan how he spends the money.

And as a mum, she has the right to tell everyone that Paris should not associate herself with Obama or McCain because, for one thing, their energy policies differ to hers, and for another, she has better hair.

Britney Spears will be answering questions on the war on terror, health care, and landing strip or Brazilian tomorrow…
