A "tart" rebuttal

sm62704 (957197) writes | more than 6 years ago

It's funny.  Laugh. 8

I laughed out loud at the AP headline: "Paris Hilton issues tart rebuttal to McCain ad"

TART rebuttal! Ok, I like puns, so sue me.

Paris Hilton, the blonde, doe-eyed celebrity thrust into the presidential campaign in an ad by Republican candidate John McCain, issued a tart rebuttal Tuesday... in a scantily clad, tongue-in-cheek kind of way

It continues

"Hey America, I'm Paris Hilton and I'm a celebrity, too. Only I'm not from the olden days and I'm not promising change like that other guy. I'm just hot," Hilton said, speaking as she reclined in a pool chair in a revealing bathing suit and a pair of pumps "But then that wrinkly, white-haired guy used me in his campaign ad, which I guess means I'm running for president. So thanks for the endorsement white-haired dude."

"I want America to know that I'm, like, totally ready to lead," she said.

Depends on where she wants to lead me. Gees, though, even Annie is too high maintenence for me. No way I could afford Paris.

McCain campaign spokesman Tucker Bounds said Hilton appears to support his candidate's "all of the above" energy solution.

"Paris Hilton might not be as big a celebrity as Barack Obama, but she obviously has a better energy plan," Bounds said.

Well, I know where I'd like to drill. Er, excuse me, that was uncalled for.

Hilton's mother, who with her husband donated $4,600 to McCain's campaign earlier in the year, has said McCain's ad is "a complete waste of the country's time and attention

Well, if Paris Hilton's rich snob momma said that, maybe I should vote for McCain?

Isn't Paris Hilton's dad a wrinkly white haired dude, too? Nah, he's rich; probably has dye and botox.

My 86 year old friend Ralph will surely vote for Hilton; a few months ago he showed me a Playboy with a picture of Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, and some other bimbo showing their shaved beavers while getting out of fancy cars. Those wrinkly old white haired dudes like Ralph know what's important!

Mr. Hilton is a multi-gazillionaire and he donated a whopping four thousand six hundred dollars? He might as well just not donate! Jesus, the equivalent for any normal person would be donating half a crusty turd. I would love to see paris get crushed by an ox.

Ever hear of campaign finance reform?

I hadn't, actually, being Canadian and such. Just googled it, so my prior comment can be disregarded. Except for the last sentence.

Interesting.

Why would you love to see Paris get crushed by an ox?

She is the epitome of stupid, famous for being famous. Stardom and egotism bother me enough from people who worked to get they are (stars, athletes, anyone high profile), but she is got where she is on rich daddy's work.
 
Partly jealousy I suppose, being able to enjoy 100% of your life without working, instead of having only the crusty old years as a senile retiree. But mostly I hate the stupidity, and people emulating her stupidity. Thank God there are still some intelligent people out there.

Doesn't that introduce a chicken and egg problem? Surely there must be some reason that the public has taken an interest in her.

Actually, Hilton Hotels was founded by Paris's great grandfather. I have no idea how hard her father does or does not work, but Paris has been in several movies, had her own TV series, recorded an album, and has a designer clothing label. I'm pretty sure she doesn't just sit around all day and play with her Wii.

You know, it's interesting. Paris doesn't actually stand to inherit that much money because most of the Hilton fortune is going to charity. I think I read somewhere her inheritance was on the order of like $25M, which sounds like a lot, but when you think about her lifestyle and how young she is, she would burn through it long before her life expectancy. Certainly people inherit much more than that all the time without achieving the fame that Paris has. I mean, she's got siblings. How come they're not in John McCain commercials?

But mostly I hate the stupidity, and people emulating her stupidity. Thank God there are still some intelligent people out there.

I'm gonna leave that one alone, smart guy.

This is all true, but would you say she does any of those things well? She was in the TV series being paid to be herself (or perhaps what she portrays herself to be), depressing 'reality' television. Does she actually design the clothes or is it just her name on them?

I'm gonna leave that one alone, smart guy.

I have no desire to be labeled as smart, however I would like to think that I can avoid lowering myself to feigning ignorance. Is Paris really as slow as she lets on? Part of me hopes not, that she is a genuinely clever woman playing society's desire for trashy women. But if that were true, I would dislike her for being 'fake', playing up something she isn't. This would be totally ass-backwards of what I learned in school - there is no sense deliberately getting lower marks to try and 'fit in', do your best at everything, etc.

i think the whole reason for this video is that she hasnt been "important" for a while. people havent had a reason to care about paris recently, so now we get a tape and its on all the major news outlets, celeb websites, and gets passed around in email form.

Like you said, she is famous for being famous, and its all terribly stupid. i will say that she does a pretty good job of it, though.
