OK, so whose idea was it to liken Sen. Barack Obama to Paris Hilton and Britney Spears in a political ad? Barack Obama is as plastic and superficial as the bumbling wonder twins of pop stardom? Not so much. I guess nobody bothered to check that both girls are staunch Republicans and come from families that are Republicans, both of whom have contributed heavily to McCain's campaign. Tsk. Tsk. That's more than a misstep -- that's sheer idiocy.
