CLICK THE PICTURE FOR VIDEO OF PLAN: I support the Paris Hilton Energy Plan ..... I am not kidding....
As you probably know by now, the 2008 US presidential campaign became a three-way race Tuesday, as Paris Hilton, irked by John McCains use of her image as electoral fodder, threw her hat in the ring.
Ms. Hilton declared her candidacy on Will Ferrells website.
The video shows the blonde socialite lounging by a pool in a leopard-print swimsuit and high heels at her home in the Hamptons as she announces that she is, Like, totally ready to lead. After pausing briefly to finish reading an article in Condé Nast Traveller on where to fly to to get the best tan, Hilton outlines her energy policy:
says Paris Hilton:.... Barack wants to focus on new technologies to cut foreign-oil dependency, and McCain wants offshore drilling. Well, why dont 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.
(Apparently, she recited all this without cue cards.)

More tax incentives to Detroit? more of our oney down the drain?
Com’on you guys - people are begging for more hybrids. Detroit doesn’t need tax incentives. They need to kick the union monkey off their backs.
Drill now drill everywhere.
I think he should say she's on the "short list" ..... that would kick Obama's ass
That whore can stick her plan where the sun doesn’t shine.
Drill on and off shore without restrictions and build refineries.
Build nuke power plants and eliminate gas fired generators
Electric Tonka Toys are for fools!
Eliminate all government subsidies for alternate energy scams.
A President has to be at least 35 years of age. Paris I hope when you reach that age you still look good
Hmmmmm, if friction equals heat and heat can create energy, then I say "Paris, come on over to my house and forget the KY...Lets save the planet!"
I heard she is now officially in the race for President. Paris Hilton’s slogan is “Oh My God! I’m totally ready to lead!”
Miz Hilton is a big proponent of drilling.
I heard that the body of the Montauk Monster had been kidnapped.
I see that they found it again.
Look, let's be civil here. While Paris is just another Hollywood celebrity, her video & commentary was pretty cute. It was McCain, after all, who brought her into this.
I think she's maturing and growing up a bit. She couldn't help it if she was born with a silver spoon. Hell I'd be partying too nonstop in my 20s if I inherited money.
Probably as well as T. Boone’s plan and for a lot less money.
That picture of her is stunning! Whoever took that picture sure knows what he is doing. She looks absolutely beautiful!
Paris has more ENERGY in her quivering little.........finger, than that other guy could imagine.
Bimbo alert! Bimbo alert!
good thing there’s no picture of me in some similar situation.......
They have videotape of me ;-)
...good idea Paris, but if you haven’t noticed drilling for oil off the coast is AGAINST THE LAW. Moreover, instead of letting free enterprise inventors come up with more efficient power sources, the government is going to dump millions in grants to “scientists” who’ll sit around and do pretty much nothing.
Yeah - it’s a really simple idea, the problem is liberal politicians got involved.
Did you watch the video? You guys are very close in ideas. Scary ain’t it!!1
That means gutting the regulations down to those that are really needed, and allowing oil companies to drill.
We do not need more government subsidies for politically correct alternative energy technologies. Let the market decide which technologies have merit and which don't rather than having legislators force us down paths that favor their constituents or their favorite lobbyists most.
She does seem to have more of a clue than Obama, so maybe McCain does owe her an apology somewhat.
All these goofy energy plans are driving me nuts. They remind me of all the stupid fad diets you hear about. The answer is eat less and exercise...DUHH..and drill more and use less. Simple.
Got to give the bimb.....er....young lady credit for having a sense of humor.
Lanny Davis said to day on Cavuto that he agreed with Paris Hilton when she said she was responsible for global warming....she’s hot
This was the only time the man did not come off as pure unadulterated sleeze
The problem with the plan is it doesn’t make incentives for the right thing. Instead of trying to get companies to build a slew of electric cars running on current dirty battery technology, how about broad-based fuel replacement incentives that cover everything from microalgae farms to efficient nuclear power plants? How about instead of hitching your plan to one technology like hybrid or electric cars, make incentives for every type of alternate locomotion, including flywheel energy storage and alternate paths within communities to accommodate smaller, 30mph max vehicles that don’t have to pass 60mph crash safety tests against an SUV.
It was a cute ad; I hadn’t pictured Supertramp as a comedienne!
With Britney Spears in the Mickey Mouse Club, and Paris Hilton in her movie and commercials, they both have vastly more professional experience than Obama’s 145 days in the US Senate.
Sadly Paris only 27 years old and is not able to meet the constitutional requirements
See previous post. A couple of more election cycles. Maybe :)
Pickens irritates me no end, but there is a use for wind power. Instead of loading the grid with its juice, invert the energy into recharging hybrid batters. Have trucks on routes dropping off your drained batts and picking up your charged ones.
Her beauty may be skin deep, but she a skank down to the bone.
See you at the debates bitches. LOL.
As posted on a Paris Hilton thread.
Any plan T Boone puts foward is sure to be good for .... T. Boone.
The blond thinks Electricity grows on trees. She's gonna have a problem driving her Hybrid to Maui to get a tan.
It could be a boon for John and Paris if properly spun
Of course the hate everything since 1955 Freepers will not like it and the Brigadeers who hate everything after 1935 will absolutely unequivocally hate it.
Its a pretty sad state of affairs when Paris Hilton sounds like the smart one.
Upon reflection, I think Paris’ vid is racist because she continually refers to McCain as the “WHITE-haired dude.”
Limited offshore drilling with strict environmental oversight is what we have now. We need expanded drilling.
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.Why don't we do a better job of ignoring Paris Hilton? ;') G'night all.
