Los Angeles, Aug 6 (DPA) In possibly the only intentionally funny moment of her career, socialite Paris Hilton has hit back at John McCain, who mocked her in a recent ad by comparing the leadership of his opponent Barack Obama to that of other celebrities like Hilton. In a cheeky video posted online Tuesday, Hilton referred to McCain as “that wrinkly old guy”. She said that McCain’s “endorsement” meant she must be running for president, and “I want America to know that I’m like totally ready to lead”.

Sitting poolside in a sexy bikini, Hilton said she was considering pop star Rhianna as a vice president and that she might paint the White House pink.

She ended the video with a new version of the disclaimer featured at the end of genuine political ads: “I’m Paris Hilton, and I approved this message because I think it’s totally hot.”
