Heidi and Spencer will entertain U.S. troops

Imagine the delight on the faces of troops in Iraq when Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt arrive to put on a81960172 show. One can only assume that Montag will sing and Pratt will glare at soldiers with his simultaneously vacant and menacing Svengali leer. People.com reports that the reality show duo will visit the troops in homage to Montag's stepbrother, who served as an airborne ranger before he died in an accident stateside.

Apparently, John McCain's daughter Meghan plans to help the two with their travel plans. From People:

“She’s very sweet,” Pratt told Extra. “I think Meghan McCain is helping organize Heidi and our Iraq trip. Her dad definitely has some pull with the military. I think she’s going to put that together for us.”

I love the way Pratt makes it sound like McCain's daughter is a travel agent, who will upgrade them to first class and pour the Merlot with a heavy hand in the cabin.  Oh and maybe--just maybe--Senator McCain can land them a corner bunk? People goes on to report:

Also on the horizon for the couple: a new video game, which Pratt says will be sold at Kitson. “It’s top secret,” he says. “Get ready. All your wildest dreams are going to be in it.”

It's great that Pratt manages to also insert a plug about their next money making scheme: a video game. Will they be for sale after the Iraq show too?

Well...can't ridicule someone that is truly successful. Heidi and Spencer have accepted that the majority of the world's perception of them is not very nice and they have capitalized on it. It's pure genius...and need I say only in America can something like this take place.

Wow. Really? What exactly do they hope to achieve there? If it's getting more people to hate them for being so idiotic and material-driven, real Americans can answer that call. The only thing I'm missing is Colbert's Captain America shield to throw at their inflated heads with deadly accuracy.
