Don't Mess With Paris
So, here's the assignment. Activate this link and while you watch the video; pay no attention to the bikini, the Air Head demeanor or the John McCain jokes and just listen to the Paris Hilton energy plan.

Then ask yourself, have you heard any elected national leader voice a better articulated, more concise concept for how we might get to that splendid day in our energy future when we might all be driving electric Lamborghinis?

Hilton developed the video in response to a McCain TV ad comparing Obama to celebrities like Hilton. Hilton's rebuttal is supposed to be a joke and it seems like one until Paris makes the energy pitch and then, oh, myyyy, gaaaaawd, it makes such good sense. Knock me over with an eyeliner stick.
