Paris Hilton and Chess

June 25, 2007

Paris Hilton may be getting out of jail, but her name–yes, Paris Hilton–is being invoked in chess circles.  No, there is no evidence that she knows a rook from a bishop, but that hasn’t stopped her name from being advanced as a write-in candidate in the election for president of the beleaguered Chess Journalists of America.  If Vogue model-of-the-year Carmen Kass can run the Estonian Chess Federation, surely Hilton can keep some unruly chess scribes in check.

The Boylston Chess Club Weblog, which called attention to the Hilton write-in campaign,  expects a lot of traffic from those who enter “Paris Hilton” as a search term on Technorati.
