Lohan vs. Palin

I never thought Lindsay Lohan would get to me, but she certainly has.  Yesterday I copped out an quickly pasted her anti-Palin rant onto my blog.  It should not matter one iota that a young, misguided nouveau riche panned a presidential candidate.  But it does.  LiLo (oh cute!) as they are calling her now, is a cultural icon and what she posted on My Space carried enough weight to be a loud story among the media.  Thanks to this very internet, we all had a chance to see it.  It hardly deserves a comment, but I believe that her sentiment is shared among many voters, especially mothers. 

Lindsay contends that Sara Palin will “negate” all the progress women have made as far as having a “choice over what to do with our bodies.”  The left is continually attacking Palin for not aborting her special needs child.  There have been questions raised as to whose baby he is.  There have been hysterical rants about her inability to hold the position of vice president and tend to this child, people questioning her commitment to parenting.  She has been called hypocritical because Alaska doesn’t have anti-abortion laws on the books.  Sara Palin exhibits all that is right and perfect about womanhood.  She has raised a loving family, no question about it, including a special needs infant.  Apparently, this infant has brought nothing but joy to the family; I don’t think this supports the argument that the world is better off without these babies.  She is showing the greatest commitment to her family, allowing her husband to take the reigns as she is called to minister to a nation.  If a person is in a position to fight for our future, the bigger picture is crucial.  Sara is seizing this opportunity to do her part to assure a bright and prosperous future for her family.  It is highly sacrificial, but her children are not going to be abandoned or neglected during the next four years.  Any mother will do everything in her power to protect her family; Sara has just hit the motherlode.  Further, it is nonsensical to call a pro-life woman who knowingly births and raises a Down-Syndrome baby hypocritical for doing just that.  As yet, Alaska still has rather liberal abortion laws on the books, but Ms. Palin hasn’t been governor for a full two years.  She may still have changes she looks to make.  OR, it is evident that she believes in smaller government.  Therefore, she may not feel a need to impose her beliefs on the entire state.  No candidate is going to reverse Roe vs. Wade and it is doubtful that the candidate will be able to appoint Supreme Cout justices who will succeed.

Now, since she brought it, let’s take a look at what Lindsay has done to further the cause of feminism.  Call me crazy, but I’m pretty sure clubbing and posting poorly-spelled diatribes on a social networking site where we appear scantilly clad is what our great-grandmothers had in mind when they hoped for our futures.  If Lindsay were not fortunate enough to have a Disney-endorsed beginning, she would enjoy no success.  If the girls who strive to emulate her acheive their goals, sans Disney, they are destined to suffer lives of eating disorders, alcoholism, and desperate pleas for attention.  Lindsay needs to stick with what she’s good at.  She’s adorable and maybe a little talented.  She is not a crusader.  Best to completely avoid what one does not understand.

Lindsay, Lindsay

O-kay, I have wanted to foster open political thought rather than destructive arguments, but if this is not a reason to vote for the other team (the one with Sara Palin on it), I don’t know what is.  I am most curious as to why the vapid Lindsay thinks she could be influential in this role.  Enjoy!

 

Lindsay Lohan‘s online missives have come a long way from the days when she offered to “release a politically/morally correct, fully adequite [sic] letter to the press … simply to state my oppinions [sic] on how our society should be educated on for the better of our country.”

Now, with a little help from inamorata Samantha Ronson, she’s penned a surprisingly coherent diatribe on Sen. John McCain’s vice presidential running mate, Gov. Sarah Palin, which she says was sparked by her “fear, anxiety, concern, disappointment and stress” and her inability to “bite my tongue any more.”

“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?” the Barack Obama-supporting actress, 22, rails on her MySpace page. “Is our country so divided that the Republicans’ best hope is a narrow-minded, media-obsessed homophobe?”

She goes on to cite an Associated Press story about how Palin’s longtime church in Wasilla, Alaska, promoted a conference “that promises to convert gays into heterosexuals through prayer.”

And while Lohan says, “I am not against Sarah Palin as a mother or woman,” she points out that “women have come a long way in the fight to have the choice over what we do with our bodies. … And it’s frightening to see that a woman in 2008 would negate all of that.”

She adds that she “would have liked to have remained impartial; however, I am afraid that the ‘lipstick on a pig’ comments will overshadow the issues. … I have faith that this country will be all that it can be with the proper guidance. I really hope that all of you make your decisions based on the facts and what feels right to you in your heart — vote for Obama!”

Alas, LiLo then undoes much of her earlier eloquence by concluding, “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.'”
