Okay, so maybe we’re forecasting 2012 a bit early. But I’d hesitate to say that we’re completely jumping the gun. Think about it, Paris has already gotten Barack to adopt her energy plan. She launched her campaign bid on Funny Or Die during the last election season on a platform of energy policy reform that garnered her millions of viewers. She’s got the celeb quotient and the Hollywood machine already behind her, not to mention her independent source for campaign financing. And now she’s got Barack supporting her policy recommendations. Sounds like a match to me…Plus, we heard that our boy’s got a thing for Catholic girls who’ve done time. Or, maybe it’s just the handcuffs…
Here’s what Daily Beast has to say:
Benjamin Sarlin is Washington correspondent for The Daily Beast. He previously covered New York City politics for The New York Sun and has worked for talkingpointsmemo.com.
President Obama’s energy policy has evolved to include a multi-pronged attack, including expanded nuclear power, incentives to encourage low-emission vehicles, and now approval to explore for oil off America’s coasts. For those of you less politically inclined and more likely to get their news from TMZ, you might be wondering why you feel like you’ve heard it all before.
It’s because you have… from Paris Hilton. Yes, that Paris Hilton, who for a brief moment played a significant role in the 2008 showdown between Obama and John McCain.

Here’s the Original Paris Video on FUNNY OR DIE, in case you’re one of the two people who haven’t yet seen it…And, speaking of movies, if you haven’t yet seen Idiocracy, run, don’t walk to your nearest video store to pick up a copy. Or PayPerView it. We suspect that someone is using it as the U.S.’s current political playbook.
Said Hilton in the video:
“Barack wants to focus on new technologies to cut foreign-oil dependency and McCain wants offshore drilling. Well why don’t we do a hybrid of both candidate’s ideas? We can do limited offshore drilling with strict environmental oversight while creating tax incentives to get Detroit making hybrid and electric cars. That way the offshore drilling carries us until the new technologies kick in, which will then create new jobs and energy independence. Energy crisis solved—I’ll see you at the debate, bi**hes.”
