What does it say when perhaps the most bipartisan energy proposal belongs to Paris Hilton?

The bronzed blond hotel heiress has lampooned Sen. John McCain’s advertisement branding Sen. Barack Obama as a bubble-headed celebrity, just like her. Laying poolside, in a leopard-print swimsuit, a smarmy Hilton disclosed her energy plan to, like, totally help the country.

Allow limited offshore drilling, she said, and offer tax incentives for American automakers to make hybrid vehicles. Drilling will help the short-term until the new technology kicks in. Energy crisis solved.

Hmm. The source is specious, but the reasoning is sound. Hilton may have something here.

Either way, the pseudo-celebrity deserves credit for interrupting her sunny leisure to think about it.

If only Congress would do the same.

That would be hot.
