She has fought back at John McCain, with ads of here own, debunking McCain's trashing of Barak Obama as a "Celebraty, such as Paris Hilton or Britney Spears In this case the words came back to hount him as Paris makes a fool of him.

The 'Paris Hilton Factor' in Campaign 2008
John Diaz
August 10, 2008

Blame it on Paris.
Even before Paris Hilton came up with her spoof campaign ad against that "wrinkly white-haired guy," this was the year that viral videos arrived as a significant factor in presidential politics. But Hilton's video this past week raised the power and the art form of freelance politics to a new level on the Internet. Sen. Barack Obama's campaign strategists might not have known quite how to counter Sen. John McCain's attempt to compare the Illinois Democrat's celebrity to Hilton and Britney Spears. Hilton, however, knew exactly what to do.
She mocked back with an online "Paris for president" ad that questioned whether a candidate who was old enough to remember when "dancing was a sin" was ready to lead. Her response from a lounge chair was quick, self-deprecating, witty - and effective in turning the tables on McCain. The ad rocketed into e-mail in-boxes throughout the land.

Paris obviously has some marketing savvy; she can turn anything into a PR boost for herself... thx to McCain's miscalculation, she'll be selling more cans of wine than ever
