A U.S. energy plan from Paris (but not France)

paris.jpgCan’t decide who has the better energy plan, Barack Obama or John McCain? Now there’s a third choice — party girl Paris Hilton. The Hilton video riposte to McCain’s television attack ad comparing Obama to Hilton and Britney Spears is hilarious, not to mention kinda coherent and smart. (Read Reuters’ story about the video here)

Hilton’s tongue-in-cheek proposals actually sound as reasonable as the policy ideas of either of the actual candidates for President.

“We can do limited offshore drilling with strict environmental oversight while creating tax incentives to get Detroit making hybrid and electric cars,” Hilton proposed.

So, if the “wrinkly white haired guy” or the “elitist” aren’t your cup of Texas tea, try writing in a vote for the “hot” candidate … but prepare for an executive residence renamed the Pink House.
