Wrong on so many levels

Apparently Liz Taylor is in the hospital for one of the 1674 ailments her body is wracked with; sad enough. But what is really sad was the statement her publicist let loose with:

"Ms. Taylor is fine. Her hospital visit was precautionary. She will be returning home shortly. At present, she is surrounded by family, friends and fabulous jewels."

"Fabulous jewels", "fabulous jewels"?! In the midst of an economic tailspin, a constitution under siege and reality shows, Dame Elizabeth Taylor's publicist chose words that might've resonated entertainingly in the early 60's or 80's but now they're vulgar, out of touch and stupid.

Hey wait a minute? Does that guy work for the McCain campaign?
