In light of both the MTV Movie Awards in which Paris got dissed right in front of her face and her subsequent surrendering to the cops to be jailed, I came up with this interesting little political metaphor, mainly that W. and Paris have a lot in common.
Okay, follow along here....
At this point, Paris is a joke. A punchline. Actually, she's somewhere way below joke. Like a really bad comedian you wish would disappear from the air. Everyone knows she is, everyone says she is, and everyone acts on it, and yet, Paris seems to be completely clueless as to her being such a joke. She goes from gala event to pop culture event as if everyone wants her to show up and doesn't seem to know that nobody actually wants her to be there. And she keeps on doing all that Paris despite it all-- drinking and boozing and whoring and making fun of Lindsey Lohan. Yet whenever somebody calls her on this, she acts surprised, like she has no idea why anybody would hate her.
Which brings us to the President who at this point in his Presidency is also a joke, a punchline, a depressing sad and tragic joke. Yet he appears to be completely unaware of this, still acting with that smirking arrogance that he's had since he was elected. He still thinks he's the President and an authority, a man of credibility, yet pretty much everyone in the country doesn't believe anything he says. And like Paris, whenever he's called on it, he acts surprised that anybody would think he wasn't just the most righteous person on the earth and doubt his word.
And also, like Paris, pretty much everyone wishes he'd just go the fuck away.
