Lohan wades into Palin story

Lohan voices her point of view on her myspace blog.

Lohan voices her point of view on her myspace blog.

ST PAUL, Minnesota (CNN) - Hollywood starlette Lindsay Lohan is entering the political arena Tuesday, posting a blog on her myspace page addressing the pregnancy of the 17- year-old-daughter of John McCain's running mate, Sarah Palin.

"I think the real problem comes from the fact that we are taking the focus off of getting to know Sarah Palin and her political views, and what she can do to make our country a less destructive place," Lohan writes. "It's distracting from the real issues, the real everyday problems that this country experiences."

"I am concerned with the fact that Sarah Palin brought the attention to her daughter's pregnancy, rather than all world issues and what she believes she could possibly do to change them-if elected," Lohan continues. "I get Sarah Palin's views against abortion, but I would much prefer to hear more about what she can do for our country rather than how her daughter is going to have a child no matter what."

    Really, you're reporting on the comments and political views of a drunken celbrity? Really?

    Lohan & Obama – two shallow celebrities with nothing of value to share. Why does anyone listen to either one? What next – George Clooney on how to run foreign policy.

    HA! Even Lindsey Lohan gets it. You know your ticket is about to crash and burn when rehabbing celebrities offer insight as to how you screwed up your own campaign. Go Lohan!

    WOW... go back to rehab Lindsey and stay clear of politics baby before you hurt yourself by using the two little brain cells you have left.

    "Puh-leeze don't over exert yourself, we as a "sober" nation would hate to watch it on TV.

    No one has to attack this woman based on gender, she's just a straight up crook, man, woman or otherwise.

    Republicans are paying bloggers to fill the blog spaces. Attorneys and McCain campaign people being sent to Alaska to "clean up" more of Palin's mess past and present. The Republicans are running around, covering up, pushing false credentials and hyping their "fluff" ticket.

    Governor Palin's resume: 'Fringe' Alaskan Secessionist Party Member… Almost Recalled As Mayor… Directed Fundraising For Indicted Senator Ted Steven's 527… Troopergate Scandal… Calls Iraq A War For Oil… Admits She Hasn't 'Really Focused On Iraq '… Palin painted the current war in Iraq as a messianic affair in which the United States could act out the will of the Lord…Alaska National Guard General: Palin Plays No Role In National Defense….was for bridge to nowhere before against it…secured 27 million in earmarks and pork for Alaska small town even though she is against and
    is a maverick…calls Sen. Clinton a "whiner", approval rating 65%, not
    85% as told by Republicans when first announced as vp candidate.

    "Eight is Enough!"

    Wow, I'm impressed. Looks like America and even those like Paris and Britney and Lohan are smarter than the republican liars give them credit for.

    We're not as dumb as they think, and I cannot wait until november to give them a reality check!

    It is ironic that the Lohan's are more intelligent than 95% of Democrats.

    Today's Democrats are sexist, sexist, sexist.

    Palin did not bring up her daughter, the press got wind of the story and she asked for them to leave this as a private matter within their family. Palin has been the governor of the state of Alaska with a great deal of success as a change agent and of bringing together both parties to do the work of the state.

    Obama does not have the executive experience that Palin has. Obama is the Presidential candidate and has had less than 150 days in the Senate. His campaign promises are not fiscally responsible. He is supposed to be a change agent, but he picked someone who was politics as usual as his running mate. McCain is the candidate with the experience to be president, and who selected a running mate who is a change agent and both have worked across party lines to get things done. I"m tired of politics as usual. I'm voting for McCain!

    If the Palin family wish to keep their daughter's pregnancy private, then why is the boyfriend joining the family on tomorrow night? Keep it private, keep the boyfriend at home. Now that we are all aware of Bristol's pregnancy, perhaps she needs a rest too, she too could stay at home. This would be the most private option for the entire party
