After yesterday’s great John McCain commercial comparing Barack Hussein Obama to Paris Hilton and Britney Spears, one wonders what the Hiltons, Paris’ “parents” are thinking.
Not that they have a leg to stand on–because they “raised” the bimbo-ho (and named her after a pretentious city)–but it turns out that Rick and Kathy Hilton gave the McCain campaign $4,600 in March.
In fact, if you look closely at the record, Rick Hilton first gave McCain $4,600, himself–double the legal limit. So, the McCain campaign returned $2,300 of it, and in April, Mrs. Hilton–gold-digger and host of the awful “I Want to Be a Hilton” show on NBC, which flopped in the ratings a couple of summers ago–gave $2,300 in her name. The money to McCain is the only set of campaign contributions the Hiltons have ever given, according to the records linked above.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, they live in Beverly Hills 90210. One other thing: The McCain-donating Hiltons recently appeared as themselves on the soap opera, “The Young and the Restless.” Since they’re neither young nor restless, there’s no truth in advertising there.
Apparently, both candidates would be the Hilton President.
I guess the money is better in McCain’s campaign pockets than the Hiltons’.
