Paris, Politics, and Perception.

There was a time that I actually admired John McCain. I admired his ethics, his integrity, his centrist policies. I found him to be honest and a Republican in the true sense of the word; the kind that, were there more like him, I might actually vote for.

Sadly, all that changed with the 2000 presidential election. There are many reasons to loathe Karl Rove, and what he did to John McCain is near the top of the list. John McCain learned Rove’s lessons all too well. His most recent attack on Barack Obama is a depth to which I would have never guessed he would sink.

Paris Hilton? REALLY?!? Honestly, Mr. McCain, what were you thinking? Quite aside from pissing off a couple of your key contributors (Paris’ mommy & daddy) and the fact that Paris has not one single thing to do with public policy or Barack Obama, you, sir, PUT THAT SKANKY HO BACK IN THE PUBLIC EYE, and that is unforgivable.

“Pffft,” you say, “She won’t last long.” I wish I could believe you. But the fact of the matter is, the woman is like a social disease. Purile, embarrassing and proliferates (in the media) faster than prophylactics can keep up. She’s already put out her own ad in response. All I can do is sit and cringe. GAH!! It’s on BBC News as I sit here typing this! NO!! Look at what you’ve done, McCain! At least Chlamydia responds to antibiotics. I’m going to be stuck enduring Paris Hilton in the news again til the end of the election cycle, you insidious bastard! For that alone, you should lose the election.
