Republicans compare Barack Obama to Paris and Britney

They're not the sharpest tools in the box the Republican Party. The party have released another 'Obama' smear campaign, and this time they've likened the superhero to Paris Hilton and Britney Spears. How so?

Well, point out the Republicans, they're all big massive worldwide famous celebs innit? Obama is as recognisable in the world as Britney or Paris, and, more to the point surfs as much on the cult of celebrity as the useless heiress and her mentally unstable popstar pal. 'He's the biggest celebrity in the world' says the ad, 'but is he ready to lead?'

Hmmm, couple of things amiss. One, of course Obama is as well known as Paris and Britney - he's running for President. Any American who doesn't instinctively hum Barack's name over a bowl of cornflakes in the morning either lives in a media bubble in Middle Earth, or is dead. Two, likening Barack Obama to as hapless a pair as Britney or Paris is not only amazingly dumb, but amazingly pathetic too. Paris Hilton has much more in common with tattoo enthusiast and celebrity blogger Meghan McCain (John McCain's daughter) than she ever would with the new Saviour of The Universe.

The Republicans should stop trying to be down with the kids by letting slip they know who Paris Hilton and Britney Spears are, and start getting on with something useful. Like losing the US election.
