Poor McCain! Even Paris Hilton is taking shots at him!

McCain can't catch a break! First the press ignores him to cover the Obama world cruise. So he strikes back with this add. Now he's got Paris Hilton coming after him! When someone who was once quoted as saying "Wal-Mart... do they like make walls there?" is making you look silly, that can't be good.

Hmmm, not a bad energy policy Paris. But give McCain a break on the whole "older than dirt" thing. He can't help it. It's funny to think though, that 8 years ago McCain was the cool outsider candidate in the race. Now he's the Mr. Belding of politics.

I'd never thought I'd say this, but GO PARIS HILTON! That's a classy (not to mention funny!) response to a hurtful piece of propaganda.



Hilarious side note: did you know that Mr. & Mrs. Hilton donated the maximum allowable contribution ($4,600 per couple) to McCain's campaign? And how does he repay them? Why, by mocking their daughter on national television! Smooth move, dude.



Jon Stewart does a terrific bit on this very subject. Check out:
