If there’s one thing about Paris Hilton–it’s that she gets even, no matter who the target.
And on Tuesday that’s just what she did, releasing a message of her own in response to Republican presidential nominee John McCain, after he used her image last week in an ad mocking Barack Obama as an international celebrity.
Hilton released a Web video of her own saying her inclusion in McCain’s ad must mean she’s running for president.
“So thanks for the endorsement, white-haired dude,” Hilton says in the ad, while sitting outside in a skimpy, leopard-print bikini. “And I want America to know that I’m, like, totally ready to lead.”
The tongue-in-cheek video is laced with age-based insults. In it, Hilton lays out her point-by-point energy proposal, after reading an article on where to get the best tan.
She talks about painting the White House pink, and then signs out with a semi-traditional campaign disclaimer.
“I’m Paris Hilton, and I approve this message — because I think it’s totally hot.”
The Web video was posted on the site Funny or Die, after Hilton’s representative and her mother both criticized McCain’s campaign for using her image in his ad.
After getting a chuckle from the video, McCain’s campaign released a statement.
“It sounds like Paris Hilton supports John McCain’s ‘all of the above’ approach to America’s energy crisis – -including both alternatives and drilling. In reality, Paris Hilton may have a more substantive energy policy than Barack Obama,” spokesman Tucker Bounds said.
