This week’s coveted Nero’s Fiddle Award goes to John “W” McCain for the ad in which he compares Barack Obama to Paris Hilton and Brittney Spears. (I think Ms. Hilton does a great job of marketing herself and her “brand” and Ms. Spears has a splendid voice and looks good in her costumes, but with all due respect, neither have gone to Columbia and Harvard Law, at least not yet.)
It was a no-brainer – awarding the award – because the ad shows that McCain and his staff have no brains. First of all, Rick Hilton, Paris Hilton’s daddy, was a McCain supporter – one of the few. So was his wife, Paris’ mom, Cathy Hilton. And so was Brittney Spears. (And I understand that the endorsement from Brittney meant a lot to McCain – or at least Cindy McCain. I think John McCain enjoyed the rock videos. What 72 year old guy wouldn’t enjoy Brittney Spears’ rock videos?)
Still, this is great news for Chihuahua breeders. It’s a lot easier for Obama’s famous fans to emulate Obama by buying a Chihuahua then by attending and graduating Columbia University and Harvard Law, by editing the Harvard Law Review, then teaching Constitutional Law, and then running and winning an honorable campaign to the U. S. Senate.
The Chihuahua option is cheaper too. You don’t need an education to buy a Chihuahua, you don’t even need much intelligence; you just need a pooper scooper – which is something you can get from the McCain campaign.
You need intelligence and an education to even go to Columbia and Harvard Law – which is something you can’t get from the McCain campaign.
This may backfire on the McCain-ista. The people who love and respect Paris Hilton and Brittney Spears, may actually register to vote and vote for Obama. Ask Rick, Cathy, and Paris Hilton how they feel.
I hope it doesn’t backfire on the McCain-ista. I’ll have nothing to write about. On the other hand, if Obama wins and the economy improves, I’ll be too busy working and planning my investments to crack wise on this blog.
