John McCain says he's glad Paris Hilton has a sense of humor. While traveling in southern Ohio Wednesday, the Republican presidential candidate said the new online video from Hilton adds some fun to the campaign.

Hilton's video spoofs McCain's recent TV ad that compares the celebrity status of Democratic rival Barack Obama to that of Hilton and Britney Spears.

The video from the blonde celebrity was posted Tuesday on comedy Web site Funny or Die. It shows Hilton lounging in a pool chair in a bathing suit. She mentions "that wrinkly, white-haired guy" who used her in his campaign ad, then she goes on to discuss energy policy.

McCain says he has not seen the video, but has been briefed about its contents.
