Forget Paris

So much for running for President, or cleaning up her act and being a good role model for girls, like she told Larry King just after she was released from jail three summers ago. (Click the first link to see Hilton's 2008 campaign ad, the second link to read the transcript of King's interview with Paris Hilton, her first after being released from jail for repeated DUI.)

Or maybe Hilton thought that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas -- and out of jail.

In any case, in case you hadn't yet heard, Paris Hilton was arrested in Sin City on charges of cocaine possession late last night -- this after cops stopped the car she was in after seeing marijuana smoke coming from it. (Hey, maybe it was medicinal marijuana, like the kind those cancer patients she told Larry King she wanted to help smoke!)

To top it off, this was the second time this summer that the 29-year-old Hilton heiress was arrested on drug charges (that we know of). The last time being during the World Cup matches in South Africa.

In the words of Elvis Costello: I used to be disgusted, now I try to be amused.

In any case, I am dedicating this Eric Clapton song to you, Paris Hilton. But just remember, as Clapton sings:

If your thing is gone
And you wanna ride on
Don't forget this fact
You can't get it back

Here's hoping that one day -- soon -- Paris uses her celebrity and millions to actually do some good in this world.

UPDATED 8/30/10: "Paris Hilton charged with felony drug possession," but charge may be hard to prove as Paris claims the purse -- and the vial of cocaine inside -- wasn't hers.Uh huh.

For the record Cocaine was written by Clapton buddy J.J. Cale. And perhaps you should have quoted the Garcia/Hunter "Casey Jones" which ultimately warns against reckless behaviors "Trouble ahead... trouble behind..."

Who could be shocked by this??? Now if the story was she had read a book then maybe, a little shock but, cocaine? It would have shocked me if she WASN'T doing cocaine.

Ahhh, she never disappoints!

Tsk tsk Paris...and here I thought she'd turned a corner.

Eeeyew, I found a nasty image for a munted septum which is bound to be a result of snorting something which isn't supposed to be sent up the nose. I don't know how to post it here though. I'm certain it "could" be Paris' nose one day...only without the moustache. Although...with the way photos are touched up these days, I wouldn't really know if she has a moustache or not...

(my word verification on this post is "pudger". That sounds like an appropriate name for a munted nose)

Poor Paris, she's not been getting enough attention with Linsay Lohan's release from prison/rehab.

@Brea, @Ange, and @EMM, you guys crack me up. Thanks for the great comments.
