Attention, America: Paris Hilton has spoken.
The celebutante thrust into the presidential campaign in an ad by Republican candidate John McCain has issued a tart rebuttal, in a scantily clad, tongue-in-cheek kind of way.
Last week, McCain launched an ad comparing Democratic rival Barack Obama to Hilton and Britney Spears, with the suggestion that Obama was no more than a celebrity candidate unready to lead the nation.
Now, Hilton has responded with a spoof on the comedy Web site Funny or Die.
Lounging in a pool chair in a bathing suit, Hilton talks about, quote, "that wrinkly, white-haired guy" who used her in his campaign ad. Hilton says she figures that means she's running for president, too.
Hilton then discusses energy policy and suggests a hybrid of McCain's offshore oil drilling plan and Barack Obama's incentives for new energy technology.
The spot ends with a shot of an American flag and name "Paris" superimposed over it.
McCain has already responded to the ad saying Paris' energy plan that she outlines in the ad is better than Obama's.
