Paris Hilton responds to McCain, announces her presidential candidacy and profound energy policy

Aug 5 2008

Parisversusmccain Paris Hilton has finally responded to the taunting attack ad which so insensitively compared her to Barack Obama.

Paris shows that unlike either Obama or rival John McCain (to whom she refers herein as "that wrinkly white-haired guy"), that she can gracefully and eloquently explain complicated matters of energy policy...while wearing a bikini and heels and looking at magazines.

"I'm not from the olden days and I'm not promising change like that other guy," she explained. "I'm just hot."

But though her aspirations may have been limited before, that all changed when McCain exploited her image in his ad. "Which I guess means I'm running for president," Hilton pledged.

Hilton then explains her energy plan, an incredible feat unto itself, as the heiress explodes all prejudices against her intellectual prowess by saying like 25 big words in a row without messing up.

If no one else has done so yet, I would like to be the first to endorse Paris Hilton for president of the United States.

UPDATE (5:01 pm): The McCain camp has apparently responded to the Paris video, telling TMZ: "Sounds like Paris is taking the 'All of the Above' energy approach that John McCain has advocated -- both alternatives and drilling. Perhaps the reality is that Paris has a more substantive energy plan than Barack Obama." Wow, seriously, is this an election for 5th grade class president?

UPDATE 2 (5:48 pm): The video's creator, Adam Mckay (the guy behind "The Landlord") talks about the moment he came up with the idea here.
