(Newser) – Paris Hilton's mom has written a scathing response to John McCain's ad comparing Barack Obama's popularity with the tabloid celebrity of Paris Hilton. McCain campaign contributor Kathy Hilton rips the ad as a waste of  time and money in a blog in the Huffington Post.

"It is a complete waste of the money John McCain's contributors have donated," she writes. "It is a complete waste of the country's time and attention when millions are losing their homes and jobs. And it is a completely frivolous way to choose the next president of the United States."
