Paris Rips McCain for His Obama Attack Ad

So now, Paris Hilton’s ripping on John McCain for having the nerve to put her in his Obama attack ad. Late last Sunday Paris’s mother Kathy slammed McCain for the waste of money, time and attention given to the ad in a blog for The Huffington Post. But Paris has made a big step further, taking her response to McCain and his ad to the camera in a scripted piece, saying “I’ll see you at the debates, bitches!!” Oh, and by the way, Paris wants to know if it will be alright to paint the White House pink.

Obama Rebuts McCain’s Celebrity Ad, While Parody Abounds

Obama Rebuts McCain’s Celebrity Attack Ad, As Parody Abounds

John McCain’s Celebrity Attack Ad

As major news organizations all across the country are becoming increasingly critical of Senator McCain for a steady stream of false, negative attacks, his campaign has launched yet another one. By featuring Paris Hilton and Britney Spears in an attack ad against Barack Obama, the senator from Arizona has risked charges of silliness to draw attention to his frequently overshadowed campaign.

In The Atlantic Magazine, Mark Ambinder described the reaction of John Weaver, for years one of John McCain’s closest friends and confidants, but who has been in exile since his resignation from McCain’s presidential campaign last year. With the exception of an occasional interview, he has, by his own account, bitten his tongue as McCain’s campaign has adopted a strategy that Weaver believes “diminishes John McCain.”

With the release of a McCain’s television ad blasting Obama for celebrity preening, Weaver said he’s had “enough.” The ad’s premise, he said, is “childish.” He added: “There is legitimate mockery of a political campaign now, and it isn’t at Obama’s. For McCain’s sake, this tomfoolery needs to stop.”

Meanwhile, The Times (London) has claimed that, “Mr McCain’s celebrity advertisement uses a tactic pulled straight from the political handbook of Karl Rove, the architect of President Bush’s two White House victories. He was a master of defining an opponent negatively, early, and of turning their strengths against them.”

Obama Counters: Is That the Best You Can Come Up With?

Mr. Obama discussed McCain’s celebrity ad yesterday during a campaign event in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. “Given the magnitude of our challenges when it comes to energy and healthcare and jobs and our foreign policy, you’d think that we’d be having a serious debate,” Mr. Obama said. “But so far, all we’ve been hearing about is Paris Hilton and Britney Spears. I mean I do-I do have to ask my opponent, is that the best you can come up with? Is that really what this election’s about? Is that what is worthy of the American people? Even the media has pointed out that senator John McCain who started off talking about running an honorable campaign has fallen back into the predictable political attacks the demonstrably false statements.”

Obama Responds: The Low Road

McCain’s Celebrity Ad Becomes an Inspiration for Satirical Parody

What if Chris Crocker, Britney Spears’ most notoriously emotional defender, was a big fan of Barack Obama too? Just what would he have to say about all of this? Well, thanks to Slate Magazine, now we know. “Leave Barack aloooonnnee!!!”

Chris Crocker: Leave Barack Aloooonnnee!!

And John McCain’s Britney Spears-Paris Hilton anti-Obama ad has inspired other parodies of his ad, such as this one:

Dr. Phil Reportedly Named a Top Hillary Campaign Adviser

Yes indeedy, allegedly well-placed Washington sources are whispering rumors that the infamous, publicity mongering Dr.Phil has just been named to a top advisory position in Hillary Clinton’s political campaign. He’ll join the likes of Ragin’ Bill Clinton, Howard “Hoodwink ‘Em” Wolfson, Magpie Williams, and Mark “I Run This Show” Penn in helping to determine our political destiny during the next few weeks.

And just coincidentally, it’s ratings sweeps time again in television land!! Since Dr. Phil can’t exploit Britney Spears again right now (since her own family is doing a good job of that) or the teenage girl accused of being the ringleader of a high school smackdown, Dr. Phil has turned to ripping off a sick, but popular popular reality show: The Moment of Truth. it’s been exposed how the good non-doc’s using a polygraph, a child molestation victim, and fancy graphics all in the name of ratings. It’s being rumored that Hillary might make a special appearance as one of the very first guests on Dr. Phil’s version of Moment of Truth, just to prove that all of her notorious “misspokens” were actually true!!

Publicity Monger Dr. Phil Bails Violent Teen

One of the girls charged in the vicious beating of a classmate was bailed out of a Florida jail by television talk show host Dr. Phil McGraw, the show confirmed in a statement on Saturday. Dr. Phil’s spokeswoman Terri Corigliano confirmed that the show’s producers were in the process of booking guests for a program about the case. The talk show host allegedly posted bond, which was set at $33,000, for one of the eight teens that was arrested for severely beating another teenager in Florida. The highly publicized case has been in the news for over a week now, and Dr. Phil must have wanted some of that action. Apparently Dr. Phil didn’t learn anything from his interference with Britney Spears.

Mercades Nichols, one of eight teens charged in the brutal attack, which was videotaped and has now been viewed widely on national television and the internet, was bailed out by a representative of the show on Friday night, according to a report from MyFOXTampaBay.com. The Dr. Phil representative was waiting by the jail’s exit, and when Nichols walked out, he tried to block Tampa TV station camera people from getting video of Nichols and her family leaving jail.

The beefy producer ran a humiliating gantlet of news cameras as he led Nichols and relatives out of the court. “We have exclusivity,” the hulking flunky told reporters who unsuccessfully tried to question the teen. A reporter from one CBS-affiliated TV station insisted that she should get an interview because her station runs the “Dr. Phil” show.

As news of Dr. Phil’s involvement quickly spread across the internet, Dr. Phil quickly issued a statement that attempted to backpedal and save face. In the statement later on Saturday, the Dr. Phil show said that bailing the girl out of jail was a violation of the show’s rules, and that the show would no longer go forward with the girl’s story. “In this case, certain staff members went beyond our guidelines (re the bail being paid). These staff members have been spoken to and our policies reiterated. In addition, we have decided not to go forward with the story as our guidelines have been compromised,” the statement read.

Britney Spears’ Naughty New Years Eve Ball

Photo of the Day: Hillary and the Naked Giant

Photo of the Day: Soliloquy VII

Photography by: Sam Taylor-Wood

Censorship! That’s what some art lovers were whispering during a recent Hillary Clinton fundraiser. Two weeks ago, a Clinton fundraiser for 250 invited ladies was held at the Woodley Park home of Tony and Heather Podesta. The candidate was missing and so was the infamous artwork, Soliloquy VII, which led to hushed whispers that the picture was deemed unsuitable for a presidential campaign. The huge photograph of the nude man was missing from its usual spot on the living room wall, and some guests concluded that “politically correct” Clintonites had demanded that the naked guy disappear.

The Podestas are part of Washington’s Democratic elite: He’s a top lobbyist and the brother of Clinton White House chief of staff John Podesta; she just launched her own lobbying firm. They’re also nationally known collectors of contemporary art, and one of their favorite pieces is Soliloquy VII, an eight-foot-tall color photo of a nude man lying on his back, by British artist Sam Taylor-Wood. “It’s an iconic photograph in political fundraising circles,” Tony Podesta said yesterday. The $250,000 picture made quite a backdrop at a fundraiser for Clinton’s earlier Senate campaign, where the official photographer spent that night with his back to the art trying to prevent her from appearing in a shot with the naked guy. “She teases me about it all the time,” said Podesta.

Hillary’s Earlier Senate Campaign

In fact, the 8-foot naked-man photo is not a “documentary-style” photograph. In more cultured art circles, it is described as a modernization of painter Andrea Mantegna’s 1480 devotional work The Lamentation of the Dead Christ, which depicts the Virgin Mary, accompanied by Mary Magdalene and John the Apostle, weeping over the body of Mary’s crucified Son. Taylor-Wood faithfully replicates the original’s composition, here photographing, in vivid color and minute detail, a young man laid out on his back. Just one thing: Taylor-Woods omits the shroud and displays his subject in all his nakedness. In fact, this modern replication omits the Virgin Mary, John the Apostle, Mary Magdelene and the cold stone slab on which Christ was laid in Mantegna’s painting. Taylor-Wood’s naked man sprawls on a bed with fluffy pillows.

No matter what reasons Mrs. Clinton might give for not attending her latest fund-raiser in the Podesta’s private photo gallery of a home, the fact that it took place says at least two things: Many years after she first tried to dodge being caught there with a naked man, she didn’t mind exposing her supporters to the Podestas’ art collection. And, this election seems to be about a lot more than just our economy and our national security. It is about our culture, too.

OOOPS!!!

Let’s not forget that a similar thing occurred on the Obama campaign trail many months ago!!

Snake Charmer: A Painting by Jamie Boling

When Barack Obama arrived for his campaign fundraiser at a Virginia art gallery earlier this week, one large painting had been concealed rather quickly behind a curtain. There had been concerns that the painting by 33 year-old artist Jamie Boling might embarrass Senator Obama, who spoke to a gathering of about 500 supporters on Tuesday night at Richmond’s Plant Zero art gallery. The painting, which is shown above, is a 6′ x 10′ work entitled Snake Charmer that is based upon the now infamous paparazzi photo of Britney Spears, sans underwear, stepping out of a car that was being driven by Paris Hilton. Strictly for purposes of fine arts education, that photograph is presented below:
