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."

god forbid you end up in an accident or in the hospital!    

I think it's great Obama turned Lindsay down.

I also think it's great that she wants to get political and support a candidate.

But maybe she should wait a while and get her life back on track before doing something this big

it's all about the baby steps to improving, But the fundraiser thing was just too big of a step

So let me get this straight. John McCain calls Obama a "celebrity" and then McCain goes and does a bit of stunt casting by picking a completely unqualified woman to be his V.P. pick? Now he's holding her up to be a celebrity, trying to squeeze votes by ducking the issues and playing games?

No matter whether we like the old geezer or not, you know the Rovian Republicans are already working behind the scenes to make certain the election is "hijacked" so we get a third term McBush and a perpetuation of war and taxpayer servitude to the Government for the bailouts this week and earlier in the Summer. The easiest way for the Rovian Republicans to cheat is with the online vote....DO NOT VOTE ONLINE (it is safer to vote with an Absentee Ballot).

Mc Cain is NOTHING BUT A MUDSLINGER. I haven't a clue as to what his platform is or what his views are on important issues. I know more about that embarassing unsophisticated YAHOO, Sarah Palin, than I do McCain. Seems she would like to set this country back over 200 years to the Puritan days -- around the time McCain was born.

This country is going to finally complete its trip to Hell in that handbasket, when this election is finally over, no matter who gets in. We're f'ing screwed, people. F'ing screwed.

I think TMZ has a point, Obama, refuses to own up to his past. His campaign 'Change' is just rhetoric. His polices raise taxes, and when anyone is trying to 'change' he refuses them. So you tell me, and I'm sure you will, what does that mean?
P.S.
Think for yourself, not what someone tells you to think. By the way, even Obama is into Politics :)

I am pretty sure that the Mc Cain camp would jump on anythong they percieve as a weakspot for Obame. I bet that if anyone on the Obama campaign forgot to use a plastic pooper scooper bag, the Mc Cain campaign would react to that as well. Not that I am saying LiLo is a piece of crap.. but well you get the picture. Johnny Mac is pathetic, and a pathological liar.

hmmm...but if Obama had accepted to use Lindsay Lohan, the McCain campaign would have used that against him. McCain needs to go and check in to the seniors home that Steve-O is volunteering for.

Oh...no doubt the important issues of the day were discussed in Hollywood with ol dried-up hag Babs screeching in the background. The drug-addled ego maniacs of Tinseltown have a collective IQ equivalent to a half-eaten burrito! For once Obama WAS the true intellectual in the crowd. Must have felt nice for someone who can't string three words together without a couple "uh--umm's" unless he's reading from a teleprompter!

Unbelievable that this is who the Dems feel represents their best opportunity to regain the White House for only the second time in 28 years! I smell F-E-A-R and D-E-S-P-E-R-A-T-I-O-N in the couple of Blue states. Can't wait until election night and he doesn't even carry NY.
