Hiltonian Energy

In response to Steve Benen’s legitimate queries (e.g. why can Paris Hilton describe energy policy and read a prompter with more agility than the Republican nominee for president?), it’s worth pointing to a counter CW on this one. The CW is that Paris Hilton is a celebrity based on being a celebrity (a talent-less celebrity), but actually as none other than Camille Paglia pointed out Hilton is an extremely talented model [the link is to the fan page of Paris Hilton–there’s a first for everything on this blog–click the photos].

And while yes she’s not a nuclear physicist (to put it nicely) in multiple ways (life experience/bubble mind), she’s actually quite sharply parlays that perception (er reality?) into her public persona. I mean she knows her fan base and the media and how to work the system.

Must be from reading all that Sun Tzu b@!&hes:

The only question now is whether she ends up with more votes than Nader and Cynthia McKinney.

  1. the big mistake of the McCain campaign is that it has invaded Paris Hilton’s turf: pop culture. we all know how pop culture-friendly McCain is.

    expect to see Paris Hilton base (aka millennial voters) rooting for Obama.

    i can’t wait for Britney’s response.
