McCain - old and funny? Campaign response - Paris Hilton may not be as big a celebrity as Barack Obama, but she obviously has a better energy plan."
Obama - um, not so funny? Campaign response - "Whatever."
Give her credit. She makes the most of every opportunity. Next, I want to know her views on their tax plans.
Updated McCain Response - Oh, yes! "Paris Supports Drilling."
We must wail with laughter and credit the McCain campaign with its finest moment.
It would seem that a strange effort by some in the MSM - e.g., The New York Times -- to cast Obama as "unfunny," has really begun to backfire on the candidate. The Law of Unintended Consequences, I guess.
Obama is funny, but in a way that his supporters have most feared -- he is starting to become a bit of an object of derision, or at least a little too weird by half.
His camp refused to engage in this exchange -- McCain's camp saw the light-hearted potential, and piled on.
If kids start to conclude that McCain is funny, and that Obama is weird, the ONE is toast!
The Obamanation hoisted by his own petard (and no, liberals, that is not a racist comment).
Great repartee by McCain's campaign (and no, liberals, that is not a racist comment either).
The Obamanation is fast becoming a splendid source of mockery, and those late night comedy writers still claim that they can find nothing funny in the Obamanation to write about, are clearly in error. Maybe they should hire Paris and McCain's campaign writers since the late night writers are obviously overpaid!
