An Officer And An Ingrate: UPDATE

hotter than Paris in the summer

Kathy Hilton: hotter than Paris in the summer

As you may remember, in my earlier “An Officer And An Ingrate” post, I asked why no one seemed to have any comments from Paris Hilton’s parents about John McCain’s ad, which paints Barack Obama as a “celebrity” in the vein of Ms. Hilton and Britney Spears but unfit to lead the American people.  In my post, I asked what the Hiltons thought, since they had donated $4600 to McCain’s campaign before he decided to, in the words of Jon Stewart, “take a huge public dump on their daughter.”

Well, I ask no more!

Kathy Hilton, mother of Paris Hilton, has finally weighed in, choosing to voice her opinion in The Huffington Post!

Now, I don’t know much about Kathy Hilton.  In addition to being (in my eyes) more attractive than her daughter, she has also proven smarter by avoiding the widespread press coverage that her daughter gets.  That said, I find myself agreeing with her statement that the ad is “a complete waste of the money John McCain’s contributors have donated to his campaign” and  “a complete waste of the country’s time and attention at the very moment when millions of people are losing their homes and their jobs.” And she’s a Republican!

In response, the McCain campaign issued statements that the ads are just good clean fun:  “We think it’s got a lot of humor in it, we’re having fun and enjoying it.”* They also said that, in the spirit of such fun, they will soon be releasing ads calling Kathy Hilton “a trollop and a c—, just as Senator McCain often jovially does with his own wife.”**

Get ’em, Kathy!

By the way, how did Senator Obama himself respond to the ad?  From The Huffington Post: “You know, I don’t pay attention to John McCain’s ads, although I do notice he doesn’t seem to have anything to say very positive about himself. He seems to only be talking about me… You need to ask John McCain what he’s for and not just what he’s against.”

Well said, Obama, and well said, Mrs. Hilton.  You two ever think about running for office together?  Think about it. . .

* – Glad they’re having fun spending millions on distracting and pointless negative attack ads while Americans are losing their jobs, homes, and vehicles at an alarming rate.  Perhaps John McCain was Nero in a past life and now fiddles while America burns?  Actually, given his advanced age, it’s possible he was Nero in this life.

** – I made up that up.  But he really did call his wife that; which you’d know if you read this blog more often.
