My world collides with Byron Beck's

Carla Axtman

I am living in a political world and I am a political girl.

Never thought I'd have to make room for Paris in my world....

While I can't get behind the offshore drilling idea, who knew that Paris would be more articulate on energy policy than John McCain? Talk about a backfire for McCain..sheesh.

And for those that don't know who my friend Byron is, go here.

    Can't wait for Britney's.

    Who is the hot, blond girl right above Paris.

    She's Hotttt.

    Holy smokes that is perfect! I normally do what is neccessary to avoid paying any attention to Hilton and Brittany, but I might need to rethink Paris now.

    This reminds me of 1988, when Poppy Bush was running for re-election against Clinton (he lost). The GOP National Convention focused on "family values," and in Bush's acceptance speech he said that if he was re-elected "you'll see a lot more families like the Waltons [the TV series, not the owners of Wal-Mart] and less families like the Simpsons." Matt Groening responded with an ad that showed Bart watching Bush make that statement on TV, then turning and saying: "Hey, we're JUST LIKE the Waltons! We're praying for the Depression to end too!"

    Wham! One-punch KO!

    The right-wingers may have most of the money, but in any battle of wits with progressives they are badly outgunned.

    No KO. Unfortunately she just articulated McCain's plan as her own. Won't be long before that's pointed out.

    She should nix offshore drilling.

    It would be great if she participated in the debates. The ratings would go through the roof.

    So glad Byron has his due here on Blue O!

    Wow. I wonder how old White-haired Dude likes being outsmarted by America's most notorious bimbo.

    It would also be nice if some of the people advocating for offshore drilling (including the above ad) understood that it won't be an immediate fix. The machinery doesn't show up overnight and you don't hit oil the next day. The process can take years and cost a lot. While we might see a short-term decrease in oil prices, it most certainly is not a short-term fix in the way of supply.

    Investing in alternative energy solutions today is the intelligent and long-term cost effective (not to mention ecological) solution to our energy woes.

    Carla, I love Bryon (and his boyfriend), but will you please, please explain what Paris H.'s amusing narcissism has to do with him?

    The nexus eludes me.

    That is wicked hilarious.

    Byron reports on culture (and sometimes entertainment stuff)--I do politics. In my view, this video smushes them together in a kind of bizarre, cataclysmic way.

    Got to love the simple logic used in that bit:

    "...but then that wrinkly white-haired guy used me in his campaign ad which I guess means I'm running for president!... ."

    Sure, that works.

    People say Paris doesn't have talent. Judging by this, she's at least a good reader...good comedic timing too.

    I love the opportunity McCain gave Paris Hilton to show she is not an airhead.

    Republicans must be feeling really lost this year. A Republican friend of mine just sent me this in a fwd email, and it sounded like it was recent.

    But I clicked on it, and the snopes page said the example was collected by email, 2004!

    They are recycling their own stuff--even if they aren't real big on energy conservation, they recycle attacks.

    "I wonder how old White-haired Dude likes being outsmarted by America's most notorious bimbo."

    Like many women over the decades who have played "the dumb blonde," Paris is smarter than she pretends to be.

  • Mark Jaquette (unverified)

    She's reading what her 'press sexetery' wrote & then off the a tele-prompter like the rest of them!

    The Paris Hilton only has 13 Floors!

    <h2>Actually Paris makes more sense than either side and either candidate. Maybe she should run for President, or at least for VP. What a HOT ticket that would be!</h2>
