Lindsay Lohan on Sarah Palin
Lindsay Lohan decided to turn her hand at politics with a well-researched piece about Sarah Palin. I think these feelings are felt by many in the US, and I'm glad that the dialogue is open and people are trying to understand the issues so they can vote appropriately.
In her blog post, Lindsay points out many of Sarah's conservative beliefs, like that being gay is a sin and gay people need to be “converted”, or her radical agendas to drill for oil in protected land areas. Lindsay looks like she was tipped over the edge on the issues by seeing a press release about Sarah Palin's church holding a conference to convert gays. As Lindsay points out, women have come a long way in having the choice over our own bodies, so for a woman with political power (and potentially even more in future) to negate that is scary. Lindsay seems to also sniff the desire for celebrity in Sarah Palin.
Lindsay ends with a quote from herself:
“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!”
Samantha Ronson clarifies that she did not write this post on Lindsay's blog (as she was accused of doing after she reposted it), though did help Lindsay prepare it.
