McCain should have known that he’d get blowback from Paris Hilton.
We’re certainly complicit in giving Paris Hilton the publicity she loves and craves. I say ignore her.
Her tirade has about as much energy behind it as a small puff of wind.
Paris...get used to it.....your opinion means little.
Someday soon, you, to, will be older......when someone calls you and old, wrinkly person, consider your past remarks.
How she even gets and audience with anything she says is beyond comprehension.
She has systematically reduced what could have beena good life into a bedroom romping spree of videos. You have made your legacy......
I didn’t think it was possible, but my opinion of Ms. Hilton has declined further.
Hey, the best thing McCain could do is pick a fight with the Hollywood left.
It was actually pretty humorous. In the end this hurts Obama more than McCain, because Obama will be viewed as dumber than Paris.
Hey, the whole thing is totally tounge-in-cheek. She’d probably make as much sense in a debate as Obama without a teleprompter.
She’d make as much sense as anyone with a head full of coke.
Unlike reviews of the Paris Hilton video by her former manager and partner Mr Rick Salomon, Paris’ latest submission shows her able to deliver a line, even while multi tasking. She also reportedly shows better awareness and use of camera angles. She is also far less self aware and in control of her emotions, than in her DUI jailhouse video release.
Speaking as a compassionate conservative, I think the sex video industry owes it to Paris Hilton to take a second look.
Personally, I don’t think this hurts McCain, and it doesn’t help her. It sorta proves the point of the ‘Celeb” ad.
I think you missed my implication in the use of “blowback”.
Which left McCain spokesman Tucker Bounds to make one of the best jabs of this election cycle: "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."
Actually I thought it was pretty funny and what was said actually made sense. She’s miles ahead of Obama on a thoughtful energy policy.It might help to watch the video by the way, it’s funny.
Paris Hilton is open to drilling. Who knew?
Yahoo News has a wonderful headline for this story (though it may originate with AP):
“Paris Hilton issues tart rebuttal to McCain ad”
I thought it was brilliant... funny... thoughtful...
She brought sex appeal to McCain’s campaign.. not an easy thing to do.
prolly in her own backyard too
oh was that paris, I didnt recognize her with her clothes on and not in night vision...
I thought the clip was pretty funny. I should also point out that the approach she takes on energy is the approach the GOP is championing. Do everything including drilling...here and now.
I have to give respect to McCain’s team for striking gold on this one. Not only the ad finally made MSM to take notice who ran it for free on all the cable channels around the clock but it also prompted Paris Hilton to attack McCain. Follow me on this one. The story will stay in the media for another week and if she’s attacking McCain then it’s only logical to assume that she’s pro-Obama.
Obama camp are probably kicking themselves because this is something they have no control over. Once their candidate is mentioned alongside Paris in every soundbite this will stick with people.
Should I remind you that Paris Hilton is one of the most disliked people in America?
You too missed the implication of the word “blowback”...
Am I the only one that thinks this is insane? The world is on the brink...we are in a fight for our survival against terrorism....and f*cking Paris Hilton is in our Presidential debate???? What the hell is wrong?
What other kind of a rebuttal could a “tart” issue?
Finally! Someone who gets it :)
I didn’t see the first Sex Tape. Would I be able to follow a sequel?
How many times are you going to repeat yourself?
“Hey, the whole thing is totally tounge-in-cheek.”
It just didn't work for me. The premise of the “ad” was a reversal. Here we have Paris Hilton, well-known by all as the ditzy blonde celebrity famous for little else but being famous, and universally reputed to be the epitome of the dumb blonde. But, lo and behold! It turns out that beneath that seemingly brain-dead image lies a brilliant, well-read, intelligent, well-informed intellect! And the comedy should proceed therefrom. As well as Ms. Hilton's put-down of Mr. McCain.
The problem is that in executing the whole thing, it must be done well enough to make one able to suspend one's disbelief concerning the reversal. Ms. Hilton came nowhere near, at least for me, the execution required for me to suspend my disbelief. All I could think during the video was, geez, this dumb blonde sure comes off as a fake pretending to have higher than a room temperature IQ. I wonder how many takes it took to get her to pronounce all the big words in the script properly.
Thus, the net effect, rather than being a successful put-down of Mr. McCain (the original purpose), is to make Ms. Hilton look even more foolish, stupid, vapid, shallow and lame than before her effort.
Since when was Paris’s opinion headline worthy?
$1000 says that if the ad were directed more towards Obama in a negative way this wouldn’t get any traction from the press.
I heard you used to able to buy it outside the 7-11’s in LA. But I never did get a copy! Maybe Nicole Ritchie still has her copy- the one she showed at her infamous party for Paris a few years back.
“Am I the only one that thinks this is insane? The world is on the brink...we are in a fight for our survival against terrorism....and f*cking Paris Hilton is in our Presidential debate???? What the hell is wrong?”
What’s wrong? We have the nominee of one of our national parties who’s policies make about as much sense as an airhead celebutard.
Dial-up isn’t the only connection that gets finicky. I have broadband and get interruptions and waiting periods. No need to apologize. I just saw the same post a few minutes apart decided to tease you a little.
“...Ms. Hilton look even more foolish, stupid, vapid, shallow and lame than before her effort.”
Rhiana as VP, “see you at the debates, b*tches”
I’m fairly sure she is not trying to pass herself off as a serious candidate. If you can’t see this for what it is, a harmless chuckle, then you’re taking things a little too seriously.
Uh, no, that's still off the mark. But you're getting closer... :)
“Paris Hilton is open to drilling. Who knew?”
It’s how she became famous.
I didn't think she was trying to pass herself off as a legitimate or a serious candidate. I think that she was insulted by the McCain ad, because it painted her as someone who is famous for fame's sake, and implied that she's an airhead. I think that the ad was certainly tongue in cheek, and an attempt to make a joke. But at Mr. McCain's expense.
Overall, in my estimation, the joke at Mr. McCain's expense flopped and wound up being at her own.
All that being said, I think that Mr. McCain's campaign's response plays off her ad nicely. It assumes the premise that Ms. Hilton didn't really succeed in her attempt to put down Mr. McCain, but rather merely reinforced the impression that she's a dumb blonde. But that even Ms. Hilton, the quintessential dumb blonde, turns out to have a more sensible energy plan than Mr. Obama.
i’m like totally ok with paris you know even though she thinks the old guy is totally well for drilling in maui but dude alternate energy subsidies and drilling in an environmentally friendly way on the outer continental shelf is like totally ok maybe and we need a vice president who is like cool anyway
It was a brilliant tease.. first she compares McCain to a horror flick ancient zombie, then to kindly Colonel Sanders, and finally to wise Yoda. I could just see her with a twinkle in her eye. She made teasing fun of both herself and McCain, but by ignoring Obama, she made him invisible.
And the media is playing into it wonderfully, giving the spot all that free airtime. Whoever did this is not an Obama supporter, that’s for sure.
It is done in a light hearted way and is far from a rant, as described elsewhere.
Have political correctness and political animosity ruined people's ability to enjoy levity and humor?
Yeap, Paris is the perfect spokesperson for more drilling. And from that picture it looks like Paris is also following Obama's advice about keeping things properly inflated.
The AP characterized it as, and I quote, “a tart rebuttal”. I thought to myself, “Well, of course! What other kind would you expect from Paris Hilton?”
