Paris Hilton pokes fun at campaign commercials – and herself – in a new spoof video featured on

Last week, Hilton distanced herself from Republican presidential candidate John McCain’s campaign commercial likening Democratic candidate Barack Obama to the heiress and Britney Spears.

In the new online video, Hilton, wearing a bathing suit, addresses her constituents while lounging poolside. “Hey America, I’m Paris Hilton and I’m a celebrity too,” she says. “Only I’m not from the olden days and I’m not promising change like that other guy. I’m just hot.

Hilton goes on discuss the best place to tan, her solution for the nation’s energy crisis, and her own vice presidential running mate (“I’m thinking Rihanna.”).

As for her competitors Obama and McCain? Says Hilton: “I’ll see you at the debates, bitches.”

A spokesman for the McCain campaign, Tucker Bounds, released the following statement: “Paris Hilton might not be as big a celebrity as Barack Obama, but she obviously has a better energy plan.”
