Paris Hilton Outsmarts McCain and Obama on Energy

Paris Hilton is one of my least favorite celebrities. Today, as much as I hate to say it, I kind of like her. Why? The instantly infamous FunnyorDie.com “Paris for President” ad:

This was Paris’ response to presidential candidate John McCain using her in his ads.

It’s pretty darn funny.

The clincher? What Paris is saying about a “hybrid” drilling/renewable plan might actually work. National focus should absolutely be on alternative energy such as solar, wind, and nuclear–but no source of considerable scale will come online until about a decade from now.

On the other hand, oil companies have plenty of land that they haven’t yet accessed. Some existing offshore areas, such as the Chevron Destin field off the coast of Florida, could also be tapped relatively quickly.

Using available, pre-approved sources to supplement imported oil, while focusing like mad on renewables, might actually be the necessary compromise that will get us through the next decade.

She’s, like, totally onto something. What do you think?

    Um, isn’t Paris’ totally rad concept essentially the same as McCain’s?

  • Alice

    yeah, I am sure that she thought of that idea ALL on her own!

    I think we need to write Paris Hilton into the US Presidential elections. Her solution to the energy crisis is the most innovative to date. She finally has the direction this country needs to pursue, which has evaded all politicians to date.

    WHY IS ANYONE IMPRESSED WITH PARIS HILTON? SHE IS NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO HAS THIS SAME IDEA. HOW DARE SHE REFER TO JOHN MCCAIN AS A WRINKELY, WHITE HAIRED DUDE, WHEN HE SERVED HIS COUNTRY, WAS TORTURED FOR YEARS AS A PRISONER AND HAS MORE CLASS AND MANNERS THAN SHE WAS EVER TAUGHT, APPARENTLY FROM HER RUDE COMMENTS. SHE WAS PUT IN A COUNTY JAIL FOR ONLY SEVERAL DAYS AND CRIED LIKE THE B—-SHE IS.

  • I have been watching Paris Hilton’s BFF. Where do they find these people? They’re from another planet!
