Someone Compared Obama to Paris Hilton Before McCain

Celeb-Gate 2008: Someone Else Pulled the Paris-Punch First!

OK. I promise I'm about to get with the program and Move On (without the .org, thanks all the same) but I could not let this slip by: John McCain was not the first one to compare Barack Obama to Paris Hilton. (!!!) Especially since Liberty and I went head-to-head on the celebrity issue, this PS-revelation is too good.

Kathy Hilton also came out with an albeit brief retort about the McCain ad, calling it, "a complete waste of the money John McCain's contributors have donated to his campaign." Well, maybe — but at least the campaign didn't spend money coming up with the idea — that was handed right to them.

Wanna know who said:

Andy Warhol said we all get our 15 minutes of fame. I've already had an hour and a half. I mean, I'm so overexposed, I'm making Paris Hilton look like a recluse.

To find out,


Barack Obama himself coined the Barack-as-Paris comparison in 2005. I thought it sounded familiar. He added after the Paris quote, "I figure there's nowhere to go from here but down. So tonight, I announce my retirement from the United States Senate."

While that retirement may be coming in January, I just wanted to add this piece of political theory: "You, all right? I learned it by watching you!"
