Lindsay Lohan, the Hollywood starlet who has plenty of experience with media scrutiny and getting run through the gutter of tabloid covers and gossip rags, recently posted a scathing and surprisingly lucid opposition to the Alaska governor on her Myspace blog.


I have to admit that I've been a long-time supporter of Lindsay Lohan, and while she's had her share of ridiculous behavior, it's nice to see that she's actually got a brain somewhere under her constantly-color-changing head of hair. Here's to hoping that Lindsay continues to move on this trend of lucidity and sobriety and maybe she'll help sway that crucial demographic of teeny-boppers and disillusioned sorority sisters.

Everything aside, way to go Lindsay and using your fame for something good!

I really cannot bite my tongue anymore when it comes to Sarah Palin.

I couldn't be more supportive of a woman in office, but let's face it, it comes down to the person, and their beliefs, male or female.

Is it a sin to be gay? Should it be a sin to be straight? Or to use birth control? Or to have sex before marriage? Or even to have a child out of wedlock?

I find it quite interesting that a woman who now is running to be second in command of the United States, only 4 years ago had aspirations to be a television anchor. Which is probably all she is qualified to be... Also interesting that she got her passport in 2006... And that she is not fond of environmental protection considering she's FOR drilling for oil in some of our protected land.... Well hey, if she wants to drill for oil, she should DO IT IN HER OWN backyard. This really shows me her complete lack of real preparation to become the second most powerful person in this country.

Hmmmm-All of this gets me going-Fear, Anxiety, Concern, Disappointment, and Stress come into play...

Is our country so divided that the Republicans best hope is a narrow minded, media obsessed homophobe?

I know that the most important thing about this election is that people need to exercise their right to vote, regardless of their choice... I would have liked to have remained impartial, however I am afraid that the "lipstick on a pig" comments will overshadow the issues and the fact that I believe Barack Obama is the best choice, in this election, for president...

I feel it's necessary for me to clarify that I am not against Sarah Palin as a mother or woman.

Women have come a long way in the fight to have the choice over what we do with our bodies... And its frightening to see that a woman in 2008 would negate all of that.

Oh, and...Hint Hint Pali Pal- Don't pose for anymore tabloid covers, you're not a celebrity, you're running for office to represent our, your, my COUNTRY!

And in the words of Pamela Anderson, "She can suck it."

Lohan's blog post

Never truer words, Lindsay. Never truer.

And just for the fun of it, below is Lindsay's ridiculous but catchy single from forever ago:

Nice words, although I dread that they will be disregarded as said by a teen riddled with vice.

Awesome. She's reaching a specific audience and she's keeping the message geared towards them.

That is, preaching to the choir. You make it seem more glamorous with such wording, though ;).

Clearly, what this means is that becoming a lesbian does a girl good.

Once you go lez, You critique the vice-prez... (idential nominee)!!

I absolutely hate her for driving drunk.

But I love her for this column.

A wash.

It's very cool that she appears to be coming out, and in a remarkably nonchalant, self-assured manner.

But, Ms. Lohan, getting behind the wheel when you are drunk is never, ever OK.

She's come a long way since her "way of the future" message. This one is "fully adequite." ;)

Don't forget the "young republicans" she could sway our way. We cannot dare assume that the youth vote is going democratic.

Is Lohan the one who was a Mousecateer or a hooker?

Love it.

I especially love the line about how four years ago Palin wanted to be a TV anchor.
