Obama: I’ve Never Met Paris Hilton
Boy, you’d think the day that a presidential candidate has to deny meeting a bimbo meant a sex scandal was about to erupt, but not this time (sorry Bubba Clinton, it’s just you).
John McCain (Republican)
Democratic presidential candidate, Barack Obama, fired back at an ad by Republican, John McCain, comparing him to Britney Spears and Paris Hilton, by stating of the latter, “I’ve never met the woman.”
Does that mean you know Britney or just forgot about her…like her audience did. Just kidding.
Paris is a thinker. Oops, I’m sorry, that was a typo, I meant Paris is a drinker!
You can tell Obama was upset by the ad, as during his speech, he was briefly at a loss for words. He looked stunned, as it’s not the image a politician wishes to cultivate.
If you’re a stripper and someone compares you to Britney or Paris, you probably wouldn’t even blink. But not a politician and I think that’s the reaction the McCain camp wanted, for people to associate Obama and his newfound fame with the underachieving celebrity tarts.
Is Obama Arrogant, or Is McCain Cranky?
Republican Ad Invokes Britney Spears, Paris Hilton to Mock Rival
“Like most worldwide celebrities,” reads a McCain campaign memo about the ad, “this status has fueled a certain arrogance.”
“They’ve got me in an ad with Paris Hilton,” he chuckled Wednesday while on the stump in Missouri. But just to be sure, he added, “I’ve never met the woman.”
