10 ways John McCain is like Paris and Britney

After that ridiculous McCain ad campaign splicing pics of Obama with pics of Britney and Paris (‘cos you know, he’s so fond of flashing his knicks and attacking paparazzi cars with an umbrella too!), Jezebel have come up with this little jem: 10 Ways John McCain Can Be Compared To Paris Hilton & Britney Spears.

Included in this list are:

  • John McCain was held in a camp, The Simple Life was held in a camp.
  • John McCain’s wife, elder daughter, Paris and Britney all use the same shade of hair dye.

It gave me giggles, anyway. Clicky here for the full list.



  1. There is substance to McCain’s argument in that Obama is being feted as a political superstar and latterly as an international statesman despite having a wafer-thin track record. Even JFK (who was attacked for lack of experience and was 3 years younger then than Obama is now) had 6 years as a Representative and 7 as a Senator when he ran in 1960.
    Meanwhile Obama was elected to the Senate in 2004 after 7 years juggling the Illinois State Senate and being a professor of law and didn’t publish during 12 years as a legal academic.
    However, the advert McCain ran was poor in that it just spliced in the celeb images and then started muttering about oil policy as opposed to (let’s say) trumpeting McCain’s lengthier record or some of his better accomplishments.
    Obama should run a counter that brands McCain a time-fighter and asks what use experience is if you confuse Shias and Sunnis on a regular basis. Get voters thinking of McCain as a slightly senile “gramps” figure who may have invented oven chips but is just a little out-to-lunch these days.
