Pop Culture now involved in Energy is Good!

Many people have seen the Paris Hilton advertisement regarding "her" energy plan that is a compromise between the mainstream competing plans by the presidential candidates McCain and Obama. She was responding to the John McCain advertisement that compares Obama to celebrities such as Hilton and Britney Spears.

In reality, both candidates have fairly comprehensive energy plans because it doesn't make any sense not to. Drilling offshore is already done in the western Gulf of Mexico and everyone knows we need to bring on alternatives and some conservation through concepts such the as CAFE standards that are already going to increase.

So we can thank John McCain for luring in the popular culture of the US into the political and energy discussion. Now more people are involved. Great job Senator! He reached out of the aisle this time.
