That was pretty funny, though I'm far from "loving her." However, I can say that I find her less annoying now that she seems to no longer be in the in the news on a daily basis.

Wow, McCain's just been made to look dumb by...

...Paris Hilton.

I wouldn't have thought it possible.

McCain got pwned by Paris Hilton? That just goes to show how much of an idiot he is. I'm with Steen. If more politicians would react like this it would be better all round. Personally I think mud flinging should result in a hefty fine to discourage it. I don't care what one candidate thinks of the other one, I want to know what that candidate would do if he won. Flinging mud just makes me not want to vote for him no matter what his politics are.

Shoot, I thought this was going to be about the
family angle. Turns out Hiltons parents are McCain
supporters and donors. Seems they were not amused.

yeah i love this whole setup....

first the ad! i mean wow! who was in on the brainstem storming session for that?

"i know, we will make an attack ad that says that our opponent is popular! that will show 'em!"

then the Hilton ad. then the donor thing.....

not to mention the "elitist" angle. i love that!

"so you, a white multimillionaire with seven homes, have a problem with your black south chicago opponent. he is too elitist huh? yeah, i see that."

yet so far the polls put them pretty close, which begs one particular question.....

are we idiots? who are the potential voters these guys are polling?!?

Classic political attack tactics, make your opponents strengths into weaknesses.

If he's popular, turn that against him, he's a "celebrity", and shares all the flaws of every other celebrity (of course, celebrities who endorse your guy have no flaws).

If he's smart, turn that against him. He must be "elitist", even if he was raised on food-stamps, and your guy was an admirals son who got all kinds of special treatment.

______________________________- stevenback7 -__ Depends, I know I am almost old enough to need them.

If Hillary was the Dems. candidate and ran her I would vote for J. McCain, Lesser of two evils.

I mean a Lawyer that cannot remember how much time she spent on researching a case? Thats how they bill the clients.

Now it appears that we have a man with twenty seven years in Congress saying that a man with three years there is responsible for the oil prices. Huh?

Then the little thing about the Ketting five and now the DHL melt down.

Seems that Barrack has not totally developed his skills at stealing from the populace yet.

He will either bring change or show us some new ways to cheat. It is still CHANGE I still have some jingle in my pocket, that both of them want to get their hands on.

People on National Review Online thought Paris' response was funny and well played. I liked it.

Paris is famous for being famous. Obama is famous for being famous. Obama has done... what exactly? Other than making white liberals feel good about themselves?

McCain wasn't my first choice. His McCain-Feingold bill is a violation of the First Amendment. On that and too many other issues he's collaborated with the Democrats to his detriment, the Keating Five scandal being the most notorious example (the other four were Democrats, McCain was arguable recruited to make it "bipartisan"). But he's a budget hawk, which fixes W's most glaring flaw, and he'll make a better Commander-in-Chief than W. He's far better on both counts than postmodernist Obama. You go to vote with the candidates you have, so I'm voting for McCain.

So, if Bush is Batman, and Obama is Paris Hilton, who is McCain?

Seven years in his state senate and two years as a U.S. Senator equate to nothing more than making white liberals feel good about themselves in your opinion?

...and you'd rather support someone who, by your own admission, has been involved in scandals and has no problem with violating your first amendment rights.

Umm... yeah. *adds your name to a list of people to not bother talking about politics with*

Y'know, I watched part of one of the GOP primary debates. McCain was the ONLY one who openly classed torture as Not Okay. The rest were trying to justify it and tell McCain why he was wrong. It was sickening. Since when did the okayness of torture become a topic for debate??

Looks like a good chunk of the GOP felt the same way I did. I'm not voting for McCain, but I was actually relieved that he got the nomination and not one of his pro-torture opponents. Seriously. Come on. What kind of moral trajectory is the US on, when torture is a topic of national debate?

These two make Paris sound good, at least she will not have prior experience helping her make the wrong choices, maybe we should write her in???

Why I'm Voting Democrat This Year.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe the
government will do a better job of spending
the money I earn than I would.

I'm voting Democrat because freedom of
speech is fine as long it doesn't offend
anyone.

I'm voting Democrat because when we pull
out of Iraq I trust that the bad guys will stop
what they're doing because they now think
we're good people.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe that
people who can't tell us if it will rain on
Friday CAN tell us that the polar ice caps
will melt away in ten years if I don't start
driving a Prius.

I'm voting Democrat because I'm not
concerned about the slaughter of millions
of babies so long as we keep all death row
inmates alive.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe that
businesses should not be allowed to make
profits for themselves. They need to break
even and give the rest away to the
government for redistribution as THEY see
fit.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe three
or four pointy headed elitist liberals need to
rewrite the Constitution every few days to
suit some fringe kooks who would NEVER
get their agendas past the voters.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe that
if we no longer have the right to bear arms
that all crime will stop because bad people
will never be able to have a gun.

I'm voting Democrat because I love the fact
that I can now marry whatever I want. I've
decided to marry my horse.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe oil
companies' profits of 4% on a gallon of gas
are obscene but the government taxing the
same gallon of gas at 15% isn't.

Makes you wonder why anyone would EVER
vote Republican, now doesn't it?

This doesn't really merit a response, of course, but just one point of fact: beginning with Reagan--the most over-rated president in history, but the best "acted" president since Hoover--politicians who are conservatives have actually been profligate spenders of our money. One of the few things I always liked about Republicans was that they were fiscally conservative (get it? conservatives being conservative). By any standard of objective observation, they have been anything but fiscally conservative for the last 28 years. And, of course, that goes for the Democrats/liberals, too.
OK, one more point: conservatives (see Barry Goldwater or Wm. F. Buckley) are supposed to believe that government is limited, that it strictly observes the law, and that it stays out of citizen's private lives. They have been at least as bad at those things as liberals have for a long time, and George Bush has treated our constitution like toilet paper, and get this... all in the cause of "security." There's an easy test: if you think being religious or evangelical (and I am both) has ANYTHING to do with being politically conservative or with being a Republican, you're wrong.
Finally, we need government to govern, not "run the country." There's a huge difference... and I'm not saying Republicans are worse at it than Democrats. They both stink so bad they'd gag a maggot.
Vote for whomever you choose. But vote.
