That’s Not Hot!

From The Huffington Post:

Today Kathy Hilton weighed in on the controversial John McCain ad featuring her daughter Paris, as well as the singer Britney Spears, in a blog on the Huffington Post.


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.

Also from The Huffington Post:

WASHINGTON (AP) _ Paris Hilton’s mother doesn’t share John McCain’s sense of humor.

McCain, the Republican presidential candidate, said last week that his campaign ad mocking Democrat Barack Obama with images of Hilton and singer Britney Spears was part of an attempt to inject humor into the presidential race.


The ad plays on Obama’s popularity by dismissing him as a mere celebrity, like Hilton and Spears. The Obama campaign has said the ad is proof that McCain would rather launch negative attacks than debate important issues.

McCain on Friday denied that his campaign had taken a negative turn, saying, “We think it’s got a lot of humor in it, we’re having fun and enjoying it.”

From The Washington Post:

If you’re going to make fun of a vapid famous-for-being-famous heiress, it’s always a good idea to check the donor roster first. The Hilton family looks pretty devoted to John McCain, whose new “Celeb” ad kinda picks on sweet young Paris while mocking Barack Obama, reports our colleague Garance Franke-Ruta. Parents Rick and Kathy Hilton have maxed out with $4,600 in individual contributions to McCain, and granddad William Barron Hilton has given him $2,300 — plus $35,000 or so to the National Republican Senatorial Committee since 2006. Way to lose your Hilton Honors status!

    Hell hath no fury like a big-money-donation factory scorned. Maybe old Kathy can put the hurt on McCain’s fundraising. You know, amongst the Hollywood elites…..
