Paris Hilton

I like Paris Hilton. I think she's a lot smarter than people give her credit for. I think it's real easy to pick on a skinny, white, blonde, rich chick. There are a lot worse people in the world. I think comparing her and her values with the rest of us is totally ridiculous, and I think that's the bit she gets...really gets. When she makes fun of "regular" people on the Simple Life, she's dead on. She makes fun of the stupid, dumb tweakers we all have to put up with and what makes people mad is that her money and status lets her do it. Yeah, she's got the money and the status to do it (but not enough to keep her out of jail) but that's not the point. The point is she sees how goofy the world is.

I'm a little skeptical of giving Paris Hilton any credit for drawing insightful chuckles from our national class distinctions. Tom Wolfe maybe, but Paris Hilton?
