God Bless America...and Paris Hilton
"Paris Whitney Hilton is an American celebrity and socialite. She is an heiress to a share of the Hilton Hotel fortune, as well as to the real estate fortune of her father Richard Hilton. She provides hope for young people all over the U.S. and the world. She provides beauty and excitement to (most of) our otherwise mundane lives."
- Excerpt from an online plea for clemency to Gov. Arnold Schwarzengger at Free Paris Hilton.
And thanks to Mags of You Forgot Poland! for the inspiration.
Since when does a drunken, carousing, spoiled brat bimbo who never has or will work a day in her life - provide "hope" to American kids? Like... they could be "born again" and have a rich mommy and daddy next time around, maybe?
You know, with qualifications like that, you could substitute her for Bush, and as long as she keeps her clothes on, nobody would notice the difference. :-(

Sewmouse, Tomcat... In the same manner that a spoiled, stupid, lazy, arrogant president convinces Americans that he's just a regular guy, I suppose. As Tomcat points out, Bush and Hilton have a lot in common. Both got to where they are through no efforts of their own, and that I suppose does give some kind of twisted hope to people.
It's sort of like people who play the lottery for more than just entertainment value.
I feel like I've done my civic duty by crafting the "No Pity 4 Paris" rebuttal petition.
I urge you all to do your part and sign here.

Mags... Indeed you have!
D.K... Or providing needed distractions for her new friends in prison?
...oh my, I think I've just been shat on by me muse, thank Froggy!
Fred... AUUUUGGGGHHHH!!! :-)
Raffi... Somebody on one of the entertainment blogs suggested that very thing--figured she'd come away from it more popular than ever.
Julie... I'll pop right over and take a look.
Nvisiblewmn... Very true, but perhaps that fact that her family hasn't disowned her yet is another miracle. There you go three right there. Canonization it is!
A 70-year-old Texas Rancher got his hand caught in a gate while working cattle. He wrapped the hand in his bandana and drove his pickup to the doctor. While suturing the laceration, the doctor asked the old man about George W. Bush being in the White House.
The old Texan said, "Well, ya know, Bush is a 'Post Turtle.'"
Not knowing what the old man meant, the doctor asked what a Post Turtle was.
The old man looked at him and drawled, "When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a Post Turtle."
The old man saw a puzzled look on the doctor's face, so he continued to explain:
"You know he didn't get there by himself, he doesn't belong there, he can't get anything done while he's up there, and you just want to help the poor dumb bastard get down."
