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."

Yeah and Palin thinks if a young girl or woman is raped or molested and become pregnant,they should have to keep the baby.She also thinks it is fun to chase animals from a helicopter until they can't run anymore,and blow their brains out. Also now her people are trying to refuse supoenas,i wonder why that would be,you don't think she has something to hide,do you?????

#37 Lisa, you wrote "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."
___________________________________________________________________________________________

That is a complete lie, for one thing, Cindy lives in AZ. and John lives in DC. Before the election they saw each other once or twice month. Additionally in the quote, Mccain said that he would now learn the internet by having staff teach him. He didn't not know it because he couldn't type, he didn't know it because he was too lazy to bother learning.

Goodmorning    

CAN ANY OF YOU OBAMA SUPPORTERS NAME 3 THINGS HE HAS DONE AND MAKES HIM QUALIFIED TO BE THE PRES? CITY PLANNER ? I HAVE DONE THAT FOR 3 YEARS, DOES THAT MAKE ME QUALIFIED? By the way, you can not send e-mails in the White House for fear someone would use them againist you. So McCain has no reason to use the computer he has aids to do that.

# 49... If you were to bother to do your research, you would have realized on factcheck.org, while he is by no means completely internet savvy, he does know how to use a computer, but that typing is an extremely painful thing to do (what with his shoulders being broken). He also cannot do things like comb his hair on his own. It is a low blow, and a distasteful ad, and if anything, serves as a reminder of what McCain did for us.

I think it's ridiculous that BOTH campaigns are exchanging blows over Hollyweird sub-celebrities!

That's why Hollywood needs to P-*-SS OFF!

good grief    

#31 - Wrong, factcheck.org is your friend. (you shoulda been left in a utility closet.)
#35 - wrong, is he a muslim, or a follower of a radical black christian preacher?? pick a smear and stick to it.
#37 - that lie has been debunked as well.
#40- Obama is an elitist, yet McCanin doesn't know how many homes he has?

Never underestimate the stupidity of the American people. It's like they take pride in being ignorant.

Focused? How exactly is responding to a reporters question being "focused on the important issues over in McCain HQ" They aren't the ones calling TMZ to respond. How pathetic.

Word out to that Obama spokesperson who thought McC camp lost their focus (re:Lohan). Who's the hypocrite? Your man partied with movie stars last night while America fell apart financially. Obama is a senator; perhaps he should be doing his job!
