Paris Hilton wins White House? October 7, 2008Posted by Conrad Hubbard in : The Chip , add a comment
In August (wow that seems like a long time ago), Paris Hilton released an amusing video jokingly announcing her run for the office of President of the United States. Near the end of the mock commercial, she said she would paint the White House pink. Tonight, the White House indeed gleamed pink in the night sky. Was there an October surprise? Did Paris win the presidency before Election Day even came to be?
Actually, First Lady Laura Bush hosted a publicity campaign for breast cancer awareness, and ceremonially hit the switch to bathe the White House in pink lights. I am sure that Paris appreciates Laura redecorating in advance of her inauguration. Meanwhile, it is a historic effort to bring attention to the cause.
