Paris does it Again

Well, Paris Hilton has now issued her full music video on her fake campaign for President, and I must say that I love it. Supporting roles by those dudes from the Secret Service, Tinkerbell, and a stuffed pig (with lipstick), are worthy of mention.

And in defense of Paris Hilton, I have to say that the woman is a very savvy businessperson. I know that she has a lot of detractors who think that she's famous just for being famous and to them I say, you are right.

Then again, I also say, you are not.

Paris is a woman that has made a business (and quite profitable, it appears) of creating a persona. A dumb blond? Yeah. She's so dumb that she's laughing all her way to the bank. And that ain't nothing to sneeze at.

Paris Hilton, I salute you.

Women like Paris do elicit strong reactions. Take her now old business of going to jail for driving without a valid California driver's license. At the time, I thought that it was ridiculous that people would say that she had been treated unfairly by making her do time in jail. If you or me, or my kids or yours, run into the same trouble, you bet your Manolo Blahniks that we will make jail time. Therefore, I thought that it was only fair that she did hers.

Fast forward.

Take Chloe Kardashian, Nicole Richie, and others, who also got sentenced to do time in jail for similar offenses, and only did minutes. From that point of view, Paris was indeed treated unfairly, and her jail time became a freak show where the media tore her to shreds like sharks on a feeding frenzy.

Having said that, I think that Paris was the lucky one. The fact that she was made to go through the consequences of acting stupidly must have done her some good. As vapid as she may appear, I have the feeling that she did learn some valuable lessons that other children of privilege do not. And that, my friends, is as good a thing as it can happen to anyone.

So yes, I leave you here with Paris and her video of "Paris for President." It is hilarious and the song is catchy.

I am so downloading it to my Ipod . . .
