Take that, white-haired dude - uh, John McCain!

It's a loony world when socialite and would-be actress Paris Hilton brings logic to a presidential issue. But there she was, lounging in a bikini verbally smacking down GOP presidential contender John McCain in a Web video for mocking Democratic contender Barack Obama as nothing but a celebrity - like Paris Hilton.
She gets in some good zingers, positing that by including her in his ad McCain must think she's running for president. To wit she says: "Thanks for the endorsement, white-haired dude. And I want America to know that I’m, like, totally ready to lead."
Then she launches into a surprisingly good detailing of a comprehensive energy policy that taps into the variety of sources needed to gain U.S. independence from foreign oil. Who knew she was even aware of an energy crisis?
The ideas or words in the video aren't likely her own, but maybe there could be a President Paris in our political future - or maybe not. See the video at the site Funny or Die
