Kathy Hilton to McCain: Quit Wasting My Money on My Daughter!

0000008492_20060920153246.jpgMaybe John McCain should have checked his donor list before deciding to cast Paris Hilton in his latest attack ad on Barack Obama. It seems that Paris’s mother Kathy Hilton has donated thousands to McCain and she was none to pleased to see her daughter used as McCain’s worst-case scenario for where this country might be headed under a Obama presidency. So displeased, in fact, that she took it straight to HuffPo (or maybe “The HuffPo” in McCain terminology).

I’ve been asked again and again for my response to the now infamous McCain celebrity ad. I actually have three responses. It is a complete waste of the money John McCain’s contributors have donated to his campaign. It is 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 it is a completely frivolous way to choose the next President of the United States.
Well said (who would have guessed?!). Anyone else think someone should be offering Kathy a punditry job?
