What’s so terrible about a leader who can communicate well?

That includes the discretion to choose what is worth a response.  McCain’s campaign chose to respond to the Paris Hilton video.  Obama spokesman Bill Burton reacts: “Whatever.”   Here’s what the McCain camp had  to say…..

McCain spokesman Tucker Bounds emails:  “It sounds like Paris Hilton supports John McCain’s ‘all of the above’ approach to America’s energy crisis – including both alternatives and drilling. Paris Hilton might not be as big a celebrity as Barack Obama, but she obviously has a better energy plan.”

Anyone else find this statement ridiculous?  I’ll be absolutely delighted when we finally have an excellent communicator in the White House.  It seems like forever since we’ve been spoken to as adults by a President who has superb oration skills and the good sense to address the relevent issues.  We’ve seen that even a “C” student can achieve the presidency.  Let’s see how it is to have an “A” student in place.
