I Love Paris.

Paris is obviously virtuous, look at her, she is blond. I have total compassion for her suffering…

But come on people. Claustrophobia!!! How many people in jail have claustrophobia? I have got claustrophobia and I have spent a few days... CNN and the talking heads going on and on, and on and on about that??? Give me a break. Our sons and daughters dying in Iraq by the thousands and we are talking about Paris? At least one hundred thousand, possibly as many as six hundred thousand dead Iraqis - most of them innocent, and we are talking about Paris??? Turkey thinking about invading Iraq and defending itself against the terrorist friends of our Kurdish allies which will bring down the whole house of cards and we are talking about Paris??? Really??? The failure regime trying to provoke war with Iran and we are talking about Paris? Our sons and daughters dying in Afghanistan and we are talking about Paris? Lebanon descending into civil war and we are talking about Paris??? Which gladiator do you favor because this nation is as degenerate as Rome and will fall the same way.

This is a perfect convergence between the media’s twin obsessions with celebrities and pretty young blondes in distress. Plus you can see pictures and videos of her naughty bits. A trifecta.

Maybe Lebanon should make a sex video: One Night in Beirut. Or send some hotties out clubbing and have them “forget” to wear panties. You’ve gotta play the media game, folks.

Paris Hilton is the biggest waste of space on the planet. The only reason she is even a blip on anyone’s radar is because she has chosen to put her idiotic life on display and has enough money from Mummy and Daddy to pull it off. I would call her the Court-Jester of the Apocalypse, but 1) that would be an insult to anyone who has ever put on motley, 2) I don’t think even Satan would create something as banal as her, and 3) for some reason that is utterly beyond my capacity to grasp, some people in this world actually give a crap about her antics.

So which is worse then, that you posted this, or that I took 5 minutes out of my morning to reply to it?. :-P

Leatherankh,

Your point No. 1 cracked me up. It’s funny enough to steal.

OMG, ITA, YMMV, but Mischa Barton is just so much more interesting than PH could ever be. The Bebe ads, the hospitalization for drinking while taking antibiotics, and being on the OC for 3 years while PH was only in one s1 ep, the LA.

On the legal issue with PH, I think the judge was a total wack job. House arrest is a good tool for keeping non-violent offenders out of an overcrowded prison system. I know of a case where someone got 20 years house arrest for killing someone. PH should have been sentenced to finish high school and do community service.

UPPER CASTE FEMALE OF PRIME BREEDING AGE TREATED ORDINARILY!….This proves once and for all that the justice system is absolutly fair and does not treat rich people any differently than poor people. So there!

We can also thank Paris for such phrases as”Paris Hilton tax cuts” etc. This episode should also help employment for discreet drivers.How about a little trickle down stuff,all you rich drunks.Hire somebody.

If they are going to talk about Paris Hilton at all, they should make it count for something, rather than nothing-as-usual. This website managed to raise a lot of very good points that the MSM might have tried using in order to make this into an interesting news story, rather than a rich-spoiled-drunken-bimbo story.

A petition was raised by Paris fans appealing her jail sentence. The foundation of the appeal was that ‘Paris brings light to other people’s mundane lives.’

At first I found that kind of insulting. But when I saw the pictures of her bawling in the back of a cop car, and heard about her screaming for mommy in the courthouse, I realized that it was absolutely true.

LOL! You hit the nail on the head.

Gerrold

On second thought, Paris in checkerboard and bells might be amusing….of course, some idiot would think it’s cool and it might start a trend. Our teenage daughters going to school jingling like ice cream trucks. Gak.

I Love Paris too….but not Paris Hilton.

Paris is famous because she is rich. Because her family made a fortune and she is in line to get a lot of it.

Think about the movies, TV shows, etc. They don’t show us normal, average people for the most part. Who wants to watch the life of a boring guy that punches a clock and lives in a bland little three bedroom brick ranch house, stuffed in with hundreds of other bland little brick houses? Those people want to come home and be transported to another world.

People want to know what Rich people are doing. They want to see the inside of John Edwards house. They want to know what corporations are lining the Clintons pockets with millions and how they are spending it. They want to know who else has been giving Harry Reid millions in property deals and Abramoff type money he took. How many other democrats have freezers full of cash? How did Hillary get 2 billion in pork spending past congress? Will the Clintons sell pardons and sell of the Lincoln bedroom, again, if they return to the Whitehouse? Does Hillary have more billing records she has to hide until statute of limitations on other crimes run out?

We want to see the Rich and Corrupt, not the boring and average.

StephenL If its rich and corrupt you seek look no further than the repubs and the 109th. It was the zenith of corruption when marching lockstep with the Bush Administration.

It is such a pitty the judge didn’t put her in the genral population. That would have taught the little whore a lesson in life.

I am always astonished at the vast cross-section of Americans who are eager to see a 20 something GenXer incarcerated, humiliated and ideally fined into pauperism for a minor infraction of the law. Sure she is frivolous, but most people her age are light-weights. Realistically, the percentage of heavy-hitters in the race is distressingly low, yet the tolerance level for self-serving, pointless lives among the general population is much higher. What could explain the degree of disdain for Paris when everyone knows many examples of wasted flesh, many of whom exist on the public dime?

In a nutshell, I think it is jealousy. Not for Paris but for what her critics imagine they would do if the wealth and power of the Hilton fortune was at their disposal.

Frankly, I’m skeptical that all those pious outraged characters would do any better if given privilege. And personally, as someone who has had a drink too many and driven home, I’m glad that the New Puritans aren’t in charge.
