If This Is How McCain Treats His Donors, How Will He Treat the Rest of Us?
Okay, so maybe you think that her daughter is a poster child of irresponability, but give Kathy Hilton credit for knowing bs when she sees it. This is her assessment of what she refers to as the "infamous" ad from the McCain campaign featuring her daughter and Britney Spears:
I've been asked again and again for my response to the now infamous McCain celebrity ad. I actually have three responses. It is a complete waste of the money John McCain's contributors have donated to his campaign. It is a complete waste of the country's time and attention at the very moment when millions of people are losing their homes and their jobs. And it is a completely frivolous way to choose the next President of the United States.
By the way, the Hilton family were donors to the McCain presidential campaign. According to media reports, Paris Hilton's parents donated $4600.00 to his campaign. This would be a donation of $2300.00 from each of them, which we believe is the maximum donation that they can make since McCain is accepting public financing for the post-primary campaign. Which brings up this question: if this is how McCain treats people who have made maximum donations to his presidential campaign, how will he treat the rest of us?
