Paris Hilton and Britney Spears were recently featured in a John McCain political ad that attacks Barack Obama. Neither of them were asked to participate and were included without their knowledge or consent. Britney’s camp basically said she’s got better things to worry about than who runs for president. (Like how much she loves puppies!) While Paris hasn’t yet seen the ad, she’s definitely aware of it and isn’t thrilled, according to E! Online:
“She’s on tour with Benji [Madden] and isn’t watching television and has not been on the Internet,” said the source. “But she’s already said she’s not too happy about it.”
That’s interesting, since Paris’ parents are big McCain supporters (even contributing recently to his presidential campaign). But it turns out Paris has chosen not to publicly state who she’s rooting for.
“She doesn’t consider herself a political figure, and so she does not appreciate being used in that way,” said the insider. “She’d prefer the candidates just leave her out of it.”
Many are calling the John McCain ad a new low, and I agree. There’s such a thing as mudslinging, Senator McCain, but equating your opponent with Britney Spears and Paris Hilton? Jesus, man, that’s below the belt and straight to the taint. I wouldn’t even do that to my worst enemy. I would, however, throw a raccoon at their face and hope they get AIDS. Just to put things in perspective.
