I just want something simple, like the TRUTH!

Did you people hear about this?

The Obama campaign, as you know, is all upset about the Paris Hilton and Britney Spears ad.

It’s racist for having “phallic symbols” — the Victory Column and the Washington Monument — in there. They say these are women who are known to be scantily clad at times (but were not in the ad) with a black guy, and that’s a racist thing.

They also didn’t like the fact they were trying to portray Obama as a celebrity.

Well, it turns out that Obama was the first to compare himself to Paris Hilton, not McCain!

Obama did this himself.

Yes, folks, NewsBusters came up with this. They went back to their own archives.

February 24th, 2005, Washington Post article:

“There’s nothing exotic or complicated about how phenoms are made in Washington, and more to the point, how they are broken. ‘Andy Warhol said we all get our 15 minutes of fame,’

said Barack Obama.

‘Well, I’ve already had an hour and a half. I mean I’m so overexposed I’m making Paris Hilton look like a recluse.'”

So Obama has already compared himself to Paris Hilton.

McCain didn’t break any new ground there.

O.K., maybe using “amazing” in the title was a bit titillating…

Most of us who pay attention to this empty suit running for president, know already – his actions, statements and predictions are a burger and fries short of a Happy Meal. Those who don’t pay attention… should. We are talking about the presidency of the United states here, not the local YMCA.


McCain Not First to Compare Obama to Paris Hilton

Update: Time magazine had the quote as well. From their Verbatim section
