Paris Hilton Tells Sarah Palin She Should Wear A Bikini
"The hotel heiress (Paris Hilton) has offered a spot of fashion advice to the Republican vice-presidential nominee.
`My advice to Sarah Palin is, you`ve got a hot bod - don`t keep it to yourself. Why wear a pantsuit when you can wear a swimsuit?` she said.
Hilton has launched a tongue-in-cheek bid for the US presidency. Hot on the heels of her latest video, she has published `the Hilton doctrine` in the pages of Harper`s Bazaar.
`I pledge to support the American workforce by wearing only American designers: Calvin Klein between Memorial Day and Labour Day, Donna Karan the rest of the year. Unless I wake up and the day is screaming for me to put on a bikini for my fellow Americans. Country first,` she declared.
Paris Hilton has enough air in her head to fill-up a hundred or so balloons, who better to offer some political/fashion advice to Sarah Palin?
Palin does have a "hot bod", maybe she can schedule a campaign photo op at a public swimming pool. If the governor of Alaska donned a red, white and blue bikini she would appeal to patriotic Americans of all political stripes.
But I hope that Palin doesn`t copy Hilton`s "no-panties" look, something should be left to the imagination.
I know this essay will elicit some comments rebuking me for belittling Palin by focusing on her good looks. I can`t write an editorial examining Palin`s foreign policy credentials, she doesn`t have any other than Alaska`s proximity to Russia. Palin has yet to deliver a speech detailing her political ideology, and she refuses to hold any press conferences. I will not participate in a fraud by parsing her stump speech which is replete with talking points, colloquialisms and vicious attacks.
If Palin finally opens up to the press and shares her world view with the electorate, then I will be obliged to write articles examining her take on the issues.
In the meantime Palin might as well put Country First and hit the campaign trail clad in a mini-skirt and a halter top.
