Paris Hilton for President!

August 5, 2008


Paris Hilton is calling out John McCain (henceforth known as "white-haired dude" for using her in his campaign video without her permission in a surprisingly humorous video on Funny or Die.  To teach him a lesson, she's throwing her hat (Ed Hardy?) in the ring for the next American President. What an ironic name for an American president.  I think America just got a whole lot sexier.

Before you poopoo her campaign video being on Funny or Die, think about how politically efficacious The Daily Show and Colbert Report are.

Before you guffaw at her Hollywood pedigree, think about this, and this.

And before you think that you have to have political savvy to be president (if you've not been paying particular attention to the news) consider what antiheroic American president Lyndon B. Johnson thinks about presidentiality:

Being president is like being a jackass in a hailstorm. There's nothing to do but to stand there and take it. 

I've seen cinematic evidence of this girl's ability to take it.  And of her being a jackass. She's also able to stand.  I'm glad I don't have to waste any more video game time on watching debates.
