Re: Barack Obama is no Britney Spears or Paris Hilton

Paris Hilton has now thrown her hat in the Presidential race with the taunt, "I'll see you at the debates, bitches":

You probably saw excerpts on TV, but what you probably didn't see was Paris Hilton’s energy policy, which reads pretty centrist to us:

"Barack wants to focus on new technologies to cut foreign oil dependency and McCain wants offshore drilling. Well, why don't we do a hybrid of both candidates’ ideas? We can do limited offshore drilling with strict environmental oversight while creating tax incentives to get Detroit making hybrid and electric cars. That way the offshore drilling carries us until the new technologies kick in which will then create new jobs and energy independence. Energy crisis solved."

We are surprised that John McCain would go after Paris Hilton after his experience at the Hanoi Hilton. All that McCain spokesman Tucker Bounds could offer was a me too:

"It sounds like Paris Hilton supports John McCain’s 'all of the above' approach to America's energy crisis - -including both alternatives and drilling. In reality, Paris Hilton may have a more substantive energy policy than Barack Obama."We did note that Paris knocked not just John McCain but also Barack Obama:"I'm not from the olden days and I'm not promising change like that other guy."

That sounds a lot like Paris might support our mantra, "what was wrong with the status quo?" So we're ready to consider giving her the Left Bank of the Charles endorsement. But wait, Paris is only 27 years old, so she won't be eligible to run for President until 2016. As we have previously noted, that's the same year Chelsea Clinton and Barbara and Jenna Bush become eligible.
