Free Paris REDUX - Now I've seen it all

Paris Hilton supporters created a petition asking Gov. Schwarzenegger for leniency. Indulge me while I give you a little excerpt:
Paris Whitney Hilton is an American celebrity and socialite. She is an heiress to a share of the Hilton Hotel fortune, as well as to the real estate fortune of her father Richard Hilton. She provides hope for young people all over the U.S. and the world. She provides beauty and excitement to (most of) our otherwise mundane lives.

[...]

As most of America now knows, Ms. Hilton was just charged in a Los Angeles court with DUI and sentenced to 45 days in Century Regional Detention Facility in California beginning on or before June 5, 2007.

We, the American public who support Paris, are shocked, dismayed and appalled by how Paris has been the person to be used as an example that Drunk Driving is wrong. We do not support drunk driving or DUI charges. Paris should have been sober. But she shouldn't go to jail, either.
Whatever, people! Yeah, Paris is such a victim. In her own words:
"I think I get in more trouble because of who I am," posits Paris. "The cops do it all the time. They'll just pull me over to hit on me. It's really annoying. They're [the cops] like, 'What's your phone number? Want to go out to dinner?'"
So NOT sympathetic to your cause, girlfriend.

UPDATE: In response to this absurdity, I just had to create a rebuttal petition. Read (and sign) it here.

Well that certainly makes me feel better.

Nice to know what Ms. Hilton thinks of us...the unwashed masses.

Her real character and personality shone through the video footage that was sold from her storage shed that she forgot to pay the rent for. She was blurting out obscenities that a regular person could not get away with. She was using the N word and degrading those who weren't rich or went to public schools. Yet people still idolize her? How dumb can people get. She is a person who never had to and never wants to respect other people. She never had to care about anything in her life until this happened. Her jail sentence is exactly what people need to see: you can't act like a brat and expect people to let you get away with it.
