Open thread on Paris Hilton saga

I was pretty bored watching Paris Hilton's interview on Larry King last night (which CNN discusses at length here).  But perhaps others can find some broad insights from the interview or more generally from the whole Hilton saga.  Since I will be off-line most of today, I have created this open thread for any readers eager to use the comments to provide some Paris perspective.

Why doesn't that surprise me, George ?

Doubt it does, S.cotus.

What gets me is all the Paris backstabbing when she is basically powerless. What is there to fear?

Bill O'Reilly did a segment tonight on her lying to Larry King about never doing drugs. Even if she did lie, so what? She didn't get us into a war. She isn't sabotaging the constitution under false pretenses. She didn't kill anyone.

What about the person a week who dies in California prisons? Any other institution and the state would come down on them hard and throw them in jail where Paris was.

O'Reilly is one of the biggest liers on TV.

I am in agreement with George here. Paris Hilton hasn't hurt anyone. She did drink and drive, and she should be punished for that, but the piling on is simply unjustified. Her "plight" elicits a "so what?"
