“Paris Hilton didn't need cue cards for her presidential campaign ad.
The 24-year-old heiress memorized her entire monologue, which included Hilton outlining her energy plan, in an online video spoof posted on Funny or Die, the comedy Web site's content director said.
Co-founder Adam McKay came up with the concept for a mock ad starring Hilton, which has received over 3 million views since it was posted Tuesday.
‘Adam thought it would be really funny to get Paris to respond to the John McCain ad that featured her,’ Funny or Die content director Amy Rhodes told The Associated Press on Wednesday. ‘Adam contacted Paris directly, and she agreed to do it. He wrote the sketch. And she really, really loved it.’
In the online video, Hilton — clad in a leopard-print swimsuit and heels while lounging poolside — announces her candidacy for president and suggests an energy plan that combines elements of McCain's offshore oil drilling plan and Barack Obama's incentives for new energy technology. She also suggests a running mate: R&B singer Rihanna.
‘I want America to know that I'm, like, totally ready to lead,’ she says in the video.
Rhodes said the video was directed by Jake Szymanski and produced by Chris Henchy of Gary Sanchez Productions. She said the video took a few hours to shoot at the house where Hilton was staying at in the Hamptons. Rhodes also said Hilton was not compensated for appearing in the video ‘because she decided she just wanted to do it for fun.’
Jason Moore, Hilton's manager, would not comment to the AP about Hilton's appearance in the video.”
“Sen. Hillary Clinton told a gathering of supporters last week that she's looking for a ‘strategy’ for her delegates to have their voices heard and ‘respected’ at the Democratic National Convention -- and did not rule out the possibility of having her name placed into nomination at the convention alongside Sen. Barack Obama's.
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton told a gathering of supporters last week that she's looking for a ‘strategy’ for her delegates to have their voices heard and ‘respected’ at the Democratic National Convention where Sen. Barack Obama is expected to be nominated as the Democratic presidential candidate.
‘I happen to believe that we will come out stronger if people feel that their voices were heard and their views were respected. I think that is a very big part of how we actually come out unified,’ Clinton, D-N.Y., said at a California fundraiser last Thursday, in a video clip captured by an attendee and posted on YouTube.
‘Because I know from just what I'm hearing, that there's incredible pent up desire. And I think that people want to feel like, 'OK, it's a catharsis, we're here, we did it, and then everybody get behind Sen. Obama.' That is what most people believe is the best way to go,’ she said.
‘No decisions have been made. And so we are trying to work all this through with the DNC and with the Obama campaign.’”
I know that more than 12% of Tennessee is a bunch of racist rednecks, by far. And I've already heard lots of people say "I don't think I can vote for a black man for President".
if McCain gets the Latino vote
And voting Obama in is clear admission that we all made a terrible mistake with the Iraq War
I wonder if things would work out better (either for Americans or for the world as a whole) if McCain gets in and we get the downfall of America over with quicker
