McCain Swings at Barack Over Lindsay

9/17/2008 2:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

John McCainJohn McCain has weighed in over Barack Obama's reported slap in the face to Lindsay Lohan. The Chicago Sun-Times quotes an unnamed high-level Barack source who says they rejected Lohan's offer to host an event because she "is not exactly the kind of high-profile star who would be a positive for us."

Tucker Bounds, a spokesman for the McCain campaign tells TMZ, "So let me get this straight -- they turned away Lindsay Lohan, but Barack Obama has friends like unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers and convicted felon Tony Rezko? Maybe LiLo is just too upstanding for Barack Obama."

UPDATE: Tommy Vietor, Obama's spokesperson, just told TMZ, "Glad to see they're focused on the important issues over in McCain HQ."

Remember when Clinton and Biden thought Obama was unfit to be President. Times sure have changed.

I call bullshit    

None of this back and forth crap even matters- The fact is NoBama has a radical left voting record and McCain has a moderate voting record. Nuff said......

ENTJ - intelligence over stupidity    

I see - once again neocons (aka repubs) are complete imbeciles lol brainless... you will all run this country to the gound. EVEN if Obama was muslim (and he's not - plus he has said the pledge of allegiance many times!!!)- are you all aware that there are over 20 major religions in the world? Dummies... but muslims scare you the most because of 9/11? how about aethists? Buddhists? Taoists? Voodooines? Shows how easily manipulated you are. Go to school , read, learn, travel, then maybe, just maybe you too can be educated. Do you know that people that vote on the republican ticket are known to have the lowest IQs, are less educated, and prejudiced (these are facts - look it up)? You do the maths. Besides - who in their right mind would have Lindsay Lohan on their ticket for anything? Ms. coke head herself lol that's more McCain's speed... get it SPEED. And forget this POW title he keeps pushing- last time I checked his records were sealed just like Bush's.. until the ugly truth came out about his airforce experience... that's right: Bush had none lol once again - the rest of the world proves why they look down on us Americans... why? because of the dummies we have representing this nation... "he's a muslim" is that the best you can do?? A black man an elitist? He can't run a country my foot - he only has run a campaign with over 300 employees for the last 18 months, and a community leader for YEARS (which means he made up his own budget, had employees working under him for the good of the people - not for money) HA!!! The only reason you'd vote for Mccain is you want to hold on to the little money you do have... oooh but guess what?? All McCains' henchmen were in charge of all the fallen Investment/banking firms... are you afraid yet? No... just vote in McCain and lets see how much money you'll really have in your worthless pockets. Don't fear a black man, embrace intelligence and don't judge a book by its cover or the Color of his skin. And go to College you dumb f.... I swear. Seriously - who in their right sane, non-post partum depressive, non-bi polar mind would vote for McCain??? I know... all the bi polar people, money hungry, selfish, and post partum depressive females that need something to look up too. Aye we're ALL doomed!! speaking of black - Palins loose daughter, the baby's daddy is black :)

"I Know Who Killed Me" was a total bomb.

I'd say that qualifies Lohan as a most-worthy BFF for The Anointed One™

MCCAIN CAMPAIGN, BROUGHT TO YOU BY EXXONMOBIL

Puh-Leaze if John McCain is a reformer then I'm a Hasidic Diamond Merchant. A reformer doesn't accept money and trips from a campaign contributor and then TRY TO USE THE POWER OF THE OFFICE TO HELP THE CONTRIBUTOR AT THE EXPENSE OF AMERICAN TAXPAYERS.

A REFORMER DOESN'T INCLUDE A CAMPAIGN WITH OVER 130 REGISTERED LOBBYISTS ON STAFF OR RAISING MONEY FOR HIS CAMPAIGN.

A REFORMER DOESN'T TAKE OVER $2,000,000 IN FUNDS FROM THE OIL INDUSTRY & THEN BECOME THE VOICE FOR RENEWABLE ENERGY.

Obama will do so much GOOD for this country. We're in trouble if McCain gets control. Or rather, we're going to continue the slide we're on. McCain can keep trying to change his tune so sound more popular, he can try all the smearing he can get, but it doesn't cover the real issue: McCain is McSAME and Obama is the only good, right choice in 2008.
I hope people can quick trying to go to scare tactics by name-calling, like "Socialist' or someone's association. The poor McSame Camp is desperate.

I agree with Tommy Vietor. Focus on the issues.

Lindsey Lohan is a horrible role model, and not someone either campaign should be using as an endorsement (and if they did, either campaign would be slammed with BAD publicity for using her as an endorsement). Anyone that thinks she would be has a short memory. She is someone in the public eye that was arrested multiple times for drug and alcohol use...then got in a car and drove. This is miles away from what Obama did. Just because he did it then, doesn't mean he should endorse it now. That is one of the most idiotic statements any of you could make.

WASHINGTON, February 2, 2011

President John McCain told a
stunned Congress he will support
a petition from Iraq to join the United
States of America as the 51st state.

"Our brothers and sisters in Iraq want
to be a part of America," McCain said.
'And I support them in their dream. My
friends, we have more troops in Iraq than
any other state. And they will be there for
at least another 92 years. We spend more
on infrastructure in Iraq than any other state.
