Paris Hilton has poked fun at U.S. presidential candidate John McCain in a new online skit after the Republican used her image in a campaign video attack on his opponent Barack Obama.
The socialite has filmed a spoof campaign ad for comedy website FunnyOrDie.com, in which she poses in a skimpy bikini on a pool lounger, while offering her energy policy ideas for America.
Hilton, who was enraged when MCCain used her in an attack on Obama without her permission, says, "Hey America, I'm Paris Hilton and I'm a celebrity too, only I'm not from the olden days (MCCain) and I'm not promising change like that other guy (Obama). I'm just hot.
"But then that wrinkly white-haired guy used me in his campaign ad, which I guess means I'm running for President. So thanks for the endorsement, white-haired dude.
"I want America to know that I'm, like, totally ready to lead."
She then picks up a magazine and adds, "And now I want to present my energy policy for America just after I finish reading this article on where I can fly to to get the best tan... Oh Maui!"
And then the socialite proves she's no dumb blonde by detailing how she will solve America's energy crisis.
She explains, "Barack wants to focus on new technology to cut foreign oil dependency and MCCain wants offshore drilling.
"Well, why don't we do a hybrid of both candidates' ideas? We can do limited offshore drilling with strict environmental oversight while creating tax incentives to get Detroit making hybrid and electric cars.
"That way the offshore drilling carries us until the new technologies kick in, which would then create new jobs and energy independence. Energy crisis solved."
Hilton concludes the skit by offering up R+B singer Rihanna as a possible vice-president and suggesting she might paint the White House pink, adding, "I hope that's cool with you guys."
