WTF, kids. Click and giggle. It will help the Clintonistas among you let go of the last remnants of bitterness. It will help the Obamaniacs fight off that sense of dread you have about which position your guy will abandon next and how incredibly boring his veep choice is likely to be. It will help the 48% of voters suffering from what our favorite pollster Andy Kohut has termed "Obama Fatigue," the weary, icky feeling that you've seen way too much of this guy, and the election is still three months and several trillion campaign commercials away! We feel your pain, fellow citizens. Please, senator. Go on vacation. Now.
Paris, a grateful nation thanks you for giving us a way to distract ourselves until the Olympics start on Friday. By the way, girlfriend, we may be an old dog with a shaky grasp of the issues, but we think your energy proposal makes a lot of sense. We predict Obama will be flacking it as his own idea by the end of the week. Love you. Mean it.
Update: Howard Fineman endorses Paris's energy proposal in Newsweek column! "We need Paris because her cheerful and sensible approach to the energy problem . . . is a lesson in leadership to the two 'real' presidential candidates," Fineman says. "Paris's message: don't stress, don't dis each other's ideas, let's just try everything! It doesn't get any smarter than that." You read that right, kids: Paris Hilton is a lesson in leadership. We are officially down the rabbit-hole or well on our way to Hell in a hand basket.
