It’s all about the celebrity
Who was the first person to compare Barack Obama to Paris Hilton? It was not John McCain or anyone associated with his campaign.
Try, Barack Obama in 2005.
There’s nothing exotic or complicated about how phenoms are made in Washington, and, more to the point, how they are broken.
“Andy Warhol said we all get our 15 minutes of fame,” says Barack Obama. “I’ve already had an hour and a half. I mean, I’m so overexposed, I’m making Paris Hilton look like a recluse.”
Priceless! Absolutely priceless!
