Paris Hilton fires back at McCain's "Celeb" ad

CNN

Watch Paris Hilton’s message for McCain

(CNN) - Paris Hilton has fired back in response to presumptive Republican presidential nominee John McCain's "Celeb" ad comparing the 27-year-old heiress to Barack Obama.

The less-than-two-minute spot was paid for by the comedy video Web site, funnyordie.com. It features Hilton sprawling in a lounge chair in a swimsuit. The socialite mocks McCain's ad, saying, "I want America to know that I'm, like, totally ready to lead."

What are Hilton's thoughts on energy policy? She says her position is a "hybrid" of Obama and McCain's. "Energy crisis solved," the heiress declares.

Hilton, who's built a career out of being a celebrity, also reveals her pick for vice president and plans while in office. "I'm thinking Rihanna. I'll see you at the White House. Oh, and I might paint it pink. I hope that's cool with you guys," she says.

"I'm Paris Hilton and I approve this message because I think it's totally hot."

The McCain camp responded to Hilton's ad Tuesday. "It sounds like Paris Hilton supports John McCain's 'all of the above' approach to America's energy crisis – including both alternatives and drilling. Paris Hilton might not be as big a celebrity as Barack Obama, but she obviously has a better energy plan," says McCain spokesman Tucker Bounds.

    Hey I'm voting for the man who was a POW and refused to say what the Vietcong wanted him to say for early release. He is honest.

    All Obama does is say what you want to hear. If he had been the POW he would have done and said anything to get out of there.

    You Obama supporters are really cute with your variations of Sen. McCain's name. Yet you will complain that he does nothing but sling mud. Is that the best you can do? Or is it simply because you know Obama has zero experience to run this country so you have to resort to making fun of his name? John McCain has served this country well his entire life. Obama needs to come back in a few years when he grows up and gets some experience. THEN he may be qualified to be our President.

    So, all the John McCain supporters who have said that "OBAMA IS THE POLITICAL EQUIVALANT TO PARIS HILTON" have fallen victim to the trap that John McCain laid out. None of you thought this until McCain told you too. Robots. Get a clue.

    This is not a joke people are suffering and going through tremendous hardship because of raising EVERYTHING. Its incredibly offensive for John McCain and all these people that never had to lift a finger for what they have to mock others that are struggling daily to feed their families. This is outrageous and is a true sign of elitism!!!!

    There you go McCain -you get PWNED by a celebrity named Paris Hilton. Serves you right for promising the American people and honorable campaign then running the most negative and dishonest ads this election cycle. Obama remains focused on the issues while you and your squad launch volleys of personal attacks.
    Can't wait till Brit Brit gets her chance!

    America needs honest, principled and intelligent leadership. Obama 2008!!

    Once again, we've seen John McCain make another bad call. This time he's attacked a daugther of a major corporation who has supported his campaign. Over and over again, Mccain continue to make bad judgement calls... May I remind the American people of McCain dealing with Keating during the Fedral Home Loan Bank investigation. Not to mention-leaving his first wive after an major car accident. BAD JUDGEMENT!!!!

    We need a President will be able to handle pressure and make sound judgement calls for the American people. John McCain is not that guy!!!

    This has not been an election.

    It has been Obama's rise into POPularity.

    The Paris ad was funny! And made sense. Good for her for giving us a little bit of humor!

    Yeah...... "McCain is right on the money" sure he is! Let's see what the Republicans & Bush/Cheney have done for the last 8 years:

    Our nation debt has doubled.......... to $10 TRILLION, RIGHT ON THE MONEY!

    We are spending $1.38 BILLION A DAY IN THE WAR WITH IRAQ! RIGHT ON THE MONEY!

    The GOP had been in CHARGE in CONGRESS FROM 1994-2006, DURING THEIR WATCH THEY DID NOTHING.... NOTHING TO DEAL WITH THE IMPENDING ENERGY CRISIS! RIGHT ON THE MONEY!

    THE GOP HAS LIED TO START A WAR WITH IRAQ, A COUNTRY THAT DID NOT ATTACK US! RIGHT ON THE MONEY!

    OUR TROOPS HAVE DIED FOR OIL.......... SAD TRAGIC........TRUE! AND 30 THOUSAND HAVE BEEN MAIMED! NOT TO MENTION THE THOUSANDS WHO COME HOME DEPRESSED ENOUGH TO COMMIT SUICIDE...........BUT HEY, "RIGHT ON THE MONEY!"

    YESTERDAY THE BOOK BY SUSKIND CAME OUT, CLAIMING THAT THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION INDEED LIED ABOUT IRAQ!

    NIXON AND CLINTON WERE IMPEACHED FOR MUCH, MUCH LESS!

    NO WONDER MCBUSH DOES NOT WANT CHENEY ANYWHERE CLOSE TO THE CONVENTION!

    OH........AND LET'S NOT FORGET ABOUT THE ENRON LOOPHOLE!
    THANKS MCCAIN.......ERR.......BUSH!
