I would add

I would add this one as the most important headline of the day.

Alice Rocchio is an office manager at the New York headquarters of the Hess Corp., drives a 1993 Chevy Cavalier and lives in an apartment in Queens, N.Y., with her husband, Pasquale, an Amtrak foreman.

Despite what appears to be a middle-class lifestyle, the couple has written $61,600 in checks to John McCain's presidential campaign and the Republican National Committee, most of it within days of McCain's decision to endorse offshore oil drilling.

Nothing fishy here. Move along folks. Hey, did you hear about Paris Hilton?!?

That was funny. Paris

That was funny. Paris Hilton's energy policy sounds pretty much like it won't work as promised, but it is better than McCain's.

I agree

It was a humorous swipe at McSame and his GOP "energy policy" and his juvenile attacks on Obama. However, to say Paris' energy policy is better than [McCain's] is damning her with very faint praise. :-)

I am sure there are a lot of fraternity boys who would like to get behind Paris for her White House run.

Paris Hilton's energy policy

It took, like, okay, ten times watching the ad before I figured that out.
For the record, I was only looking for a weakness in her campaign.

I take back anything I ever

I take back anything I ever said about Paris Hilton being stupid. This not only smacks McCain up the side of the head, it smacks her critics as well.

Bravo, Paris.

Anyone who can manipulate

Anyone who can manipulate the media as she does has to be anything but stupid.

In the unkindest cut of all,

In the unkindest cut of all, McCain’s spokesperson Tucker Bounds tells TMZ that on the subject of energy, Paris is deeper than Barack. He says, “Sounds like Paris is taking the ‘All of the Above’ energy approach that John McCain has advocated — both alternatives and drilling. Perhaps the reality is that Paris has a more substantive energy plan than Barack Obama.”

I'd challenge that

I'd challenge that assertion with this one from Obama:

So I told them something simple," Obama said. "I said, 'You know what? You can inflate your tires to the proper levels and that if everybody in America inflated their tires to the proper level, we would actually probably save more oil than all the oil we'd get from John McCain drilling right below his feet there, or wherever he was going to drill.'"...

"So now the Republicans are going around -- this is the kind of thing they do. I don't understand it! They're going around, they're sending like little tire gauges, making fun of this idea as if this is 'Barack Obama's energy plan.'

"Now two points, one, they know they're lying about what my energy plan is, but the other thing is they're making fun of a step that every expert says would absolutely reduce our oil consumption by 3 to 4 percent. It's like these guys take pride in being ignorant."

Remember when the Hansen Brothers took an axe to the team bus in Slap Shot?

Same here, they're makin' it look mean.

That van obviously had properly inflated tires and deserved to be crunched.

And there was this little tidbit as well about the Florida bus.
