Paris Hilton Trumps McCain

The McCain Campaign made a ridiculous commercial when Senator Obama gave a speech to over 200,000 people in Germany comparing his celebrity status to that of Paris Hilton and Britney Spears. Well, Paris Hilton has now made a commercial accepting the endorsement of Senator McCain for her run for the Presidency. With the serious issues affecting the American People the McCain Campaign thinks that it is appropriate to bring the Presidential race down to the level of pop culture, well they have accomplished their goal. In her commerical for the Presidency, Ms. Hilton presents a more coherent energy plan than Senator McCain has presented. The McCain Campaign has now reveled that they know less about the problems that need solving than Ms. Hilton. Although Ms. Hilton's commercial was done as a sarcastic answer to the McCain Campaign using her in their commercial, Ms. Hilton shows that she is more intelligent and a more effective communicator than Senator McCain. Ms. Hilton even understands the need to more to a renewable energy source.

Senator McCain is stuck on a mantra of drill here, drill now, which is a game that the Republicans want to play with the American People. The drill here, drill now mantra is a phony solution to a real problem. If Congress came back to session today and voted to allow drilling on the outer continental shelf, it would take years to even construct the drilling rigs to drill, then it would take years to reach the oil and bring it to market. While 7- 8 years are being wasted retrieving an outdated source of energy, billions of dollars could be poured into the research, development and implementation of alternative, renewable, sustainable energy. A permanent solution to the energy needs of our Nation. Mr. McCain wants to live in the past,m the fossil fuel era is finished. It is dead. Just as America drastically changed during the Industrial Revolution, it is now time for America to take another step towards a better future and enter the New Age of Energy. McCain today likened the energy crisis to a war, saying that the Surge in Iraq worked (which it didn't) so now it is time for a Surge in Energy. That wording is correct Mr. McCain it is time for a surge, but a surge towards the future, the future of renewable, sustainable, alternative energy, not a surge to let the fossil fuel companies retrieve the last remaining drops of fuel from the Public Lands of America and charge the American People outlandish profits for the minerals that rightfully belong to them. It is time to surge towards the future.

" Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway
Don't block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There's a battle outside And it is ragin'.
It'll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin'."
