Paris watchers will, of course, be aware that Ms Hilton launched her pitch for the White House following John McCain's comparison of Barack Obama to "superficial" celebs, specifically naming Hilton and Britney Spears as examples. She hit back with this vid, notable for its plausible solution to America's energy woes:

Well, fair play to Paris and Sheen (and son) for providing some light relief amid the economic gloom and increasingly tiresome US presidential election catfight campaign. See you at the fake ballot box, bitches. ®
