Paris Hilton

Remember that old equation – supply and demand. A friend of mine said something that really struck me. He said we aren’t going to get an explosion of jobs until demand increases. Demand equals the middle class doing better. It is really that simple.

Let’s take Levi’s 501 jeans. How do we get Levi’s to hire more people to make more of their classic 501 jeans? It isn’t by giving tax cuts to Paris Hilton. It is by putting more money into the pockets of average middle class Americans. Then, when thousands of Americans buy Levi’s 501 jeans and the demand exceeds the supply, the Levi Strauss company will hire more workers to make those classic jeans. It is that simple.

Paris Hilton's Rebuttal

So, who knew that Paris Hilton had a sense of humor? Who knew that it appears that she has a brain? She doesn’t attack John McCain but she does poke a stick at him. Her energy plan…wait. I’ll stop there. I’m not going to seriously consider a Paris Hilton energy plan. I can’t do it.

McCain Pouring Money Into Britney Ad

Ever since former President Nixon showed the Republicans how to exploit race and racial fears to win elections, the Republicans have been doing it. Reagan had the famous “welfare queen.” Now, Senator John McCain is showing footage of Senator Barack Obama with Britney Spears and Paris Hilton, two young and famous white women. Yes, the message of his commercial is about Obama being nothing but an empty suit, but there is a subtle undertone. (Where is Cleavon Little from Blazing Saddles?) It is clear that McCain is playing the race card. He is doubling down by pouring money into this ad. He thinks he has finally found a winner.

The down-side for McCain is if voters don’t buy his Fear-the-Black-Man strategy, then he is in trouble.
