(Newser) – Paris Hilton says she’s “like, totally ready to lead” in her video response to John McCain—the "wrinkly, white-haired guy"—for his ad comparing Barack Obama to tabloid celebrities like herself, ABC News reports. In the deadpan video posted on, the heiress figures she's now a candidate herself and explains her serious-sounding energy policy while reclining in a lawn chair in her bathing suit. “I’ll see you at the debates, bitches,” she says. “Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go pick out a vice president.”

Another snippet, summing things up: "I'm not from the olden days, and I'm not promising change like that other guy. I'm just hot."
