Free Paris!!!

She shouldn’t be locked up. She’s a role model for young people all around the world! Won’t somebody please think of the children!!!

Celebrity heiress Paris Hilton is backing an online petition seeking a pardon of her 45-day prison sentence because she enlivens “mundane” lives.

The petition to California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger also claims she was being used as a scapegoat to highlight the dangers of drink-driving.

Hilton was sentenced after being found guilty of violating her probation for a drink-driving conviction.

And my favorite bit from the story regarding the online petition:

It also draws parallels between other high-profile US figures who were forgiven for their misdeeds.

“If the late former President Gerald Ford could find it in his heart to pardon the late former President Richard Nixon after his mistake(s), we undeniably support Paris Hilton being pardoned for her honest mistake,” it says.

I’d be more critical of media outlets for covering crap like this were it not for the fact that I just wasted 30 seconds out of the lives of every person who reads this here. I’m cognizant of that kind of irony.

  1. The difference here is that while I have little interest in Nixon… I want to peg Paris’ legs behind her ears for all of the three and a half minutes I am able to.


  2. “It emerged that the depressed socialite had refused to eat inside the Century Regional Detention Facility in Los Angeles, and had cried herself to sleep every night.

    Medics and guards feared she would have a total nervous breakdown. There were even concerns she might try to kill herself.”

    1) Isn’t t normal for people with eating disorders not to eat?

    2) If Paris has such low self esteem of herself and considering suicide, then this just may be the time for me to make the moves on her. And after my two minutes of fun (yeah I was way to optimistic in my first comment) we can both lay there, holding each other, and both have something rally to cry about.


    (P.S. I hate that this comment section does not preserve formating)

  3. Yes, I heard about her getting sent home. I’m so glad she’s not getting special treatment just because she’s a celebrity. It makes sense to send her home, what with her not feeling good and all. After all, we wouldn’t want her stuck around all the diabetics, cancer suffers, and folks with real illnesses, spreading her “not feeling good” to them and risking making them sick.

    And why, exactly, should we even be upset that she might try to kill herself?

    So, on my list of web work is finding a plug-in to improve comment entry, then, Tim?
