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."

Obama camp, don't you think Bill Ayers and Tony Rezko ARE the IMPORTANT issues. I don't know about the rest of Americans out there, but I wouldn't feel to secure to know B. Hussein Obama is buddy buddy with someone who bombed the Pentagon in the 1970's and as late as 2001 said that he felt he and the other radical bombers "didn't do enough" and when asked about another attack he said he wouldn't "discount the possibility." And lets not forget Rev. Wright. When Obama says that McCain "must think we're stupid" he clearly thinks the same way. Does he mean to tell us that sitting in a church for 20 years with that bitter angry "G-Damning America" guy, he didn't once get up and walk out? Wake UP People!

What a great comeback...LOL McCain just needs to give up and quit wasting money. This election will be historic and Obama will win, because sooooo many people are going to come out and vote this year.

Please redneck rupub's you will not convince anyone to change their vote, so just stfu..no one cares about your political views and no one values your opinion on Obama... Why are you even on this website..go read the bible or something, good lord you morons are bored.

Maybe Cindy should talk about time she spends volunteering for Mother Theresa' organization as well as the smile campaign regarding cleft palates. She has spoken about being addicted to pain killers. Then Mrs. Obama can talk about her salary doubling to $300,000 after her husband became senator. THen they can talk about those huge checks they write for charity out of their 2million dollar income. It is less than 2%. How can anyone support such a hypocrite- he is scary.

McCain didn't want any support from Paris Hilton. It's basically the same thing.

I totally disagree #21. I am a white woman that will not be voting for Obama. Not because he's black, I have no problem with that. What I do have a problem with is a closet Muslim running for President, who refuses to say the Pledge of Allegience. That's all I need to know. If he becomes President, the USA has no chance at beccoming the great country it should be.

Armstrong - It's a womens body. They can do whatever they want with it. If a defenseless women gets raped and pregnant she shouldn't have to have that baby.

NotFamous,

Oh my, the slanderous lies continue! John McCain does know how to use a computer however numbnutts, he can't type due the horrific torture he went through in the POW camp while protecting your dumb ass. His elbows were tied behind his back and he was hung by his arms. Cindy McCain does his typing for him.

Have you ever slept on your arm the wrong way and awakened with your arm, hands or both asleep? Well, that is the way his feel 24/7!

I suggest you go to factcheck.org and do a little homework!

Obama has turned into such an elitist. Lindsey is not the brightest bulb in the box, but this shows how snooty he's getting. Kind of annoying.
