“Similar with Britney, who is worth as much many women in business”

Jeffrey Jolson and the editors of this rag need to proofread their drivel a tad bit better.

Why didn’t she sue Obama? He’s the one who made the comparison first. That’s where McCain’s people got the idea.

Paris’ mommy also cried about the injustice of having her daughter actually be punished for not obeying the laws little people have to obey. If the Hilton sisters are braindead celebrity whores they can blame it on their mother the enabler.

Well they might as well sue the Morning Joe show for calling her a “skank” no less than 3xs this AM.

The Senator’s Humble Beginning
Rising Star Barack Obama Is Resolutely Down to Earth

By Mark Leibovich
Washington Post Staff Writer
Thursday, February 24, 2005; Page C01

There’s nothing exotic or complicated about how phenoms are made in Washington, and, more to the point, how they are broken.

“Andy Warhol said we all get our 15 minutes of fame,” says Barack Obama. “I’ve already had an hour and a half. I mean, I’m so overexposed, I’m making Paris Hilton look like a recluse.”

How was McCain’s ad “insulting” to Ms. Hilton? It merely showed her and called her a “celebrity”. Is that not what Kathy Hilton has been driving her daughters to for their whole lives?

This is baloney

Hilton is a celebrity, and her image can therefore be used this way

liberal judge and lawyers

Simply stated, you cannot use a person’ image to sell anything without their approval and likely a large check.

Minor point but what would be the product that McCain is "selling"?

Moreover, Paris can sue McCain in many states who have “right of publicity laws.” Simply stated, you cannot use a person’ image to sell anything without their approval ....

My understanding is that political ads are immune from suit ... look at the lies and distortions they all use year after year, campaign after campaign. But this commercial did not sell anything, it was not a revenue advertisement. Not a lawyer, but I'd like to have more than this excuse as a reason to bring action, seek damages.

These people are in the public domain. And exactly what product is McCain selling? Idiots...

Should be easy, all Paris has to prove is that she is not a pig...looking forward to it.

Paris may be blonde, but like Madonna, is anything but dumb. She has multiple corporations, a fashion line, makes her TV appearances and board meetings on time and has kept out of trouble. She is still young and rich, so subject to any rock star-like messes – but she can be cool as any CEO.

spare me...please...

Is there anyone who isn’t offended by something and ready to blow a gasket? Anyone?

Since when did Paris worry about attention? At least they used one that didn’t show all the unclothed anatomy of many Paris pictures available to just about everyone.

McCain is one of the few men who has made a video featuring Paris dressed.

Hilton’s May Pull McCain Donations, Paris Can Sue McCain

Whatever Hollywood Today is...did it REALLY publish a headline using an apostrophe for a plural?

Shame, shame...
