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."

It is amazing how some women can be so easily fooled, as a woman you should feel so exploited by John McCaine, he pulled Sarah Who, out of a hat, this woman who doesn't know what the Bush doctrine is, can see Rusia from her front porch, and who has a 17 year old daughter knocked up, and said she is the proud grand parent of her 17 year old granchild, honestly.. tell me a parent who is proud their 17 year old daughter is knocked up?? so much for family value! my daughter finish high school at 17, graduated with honors, go to college remain a virgin until she was 19, OH just one note, I am a single mom, who work hard and instill empowerment, life skills, self esteem, and pride to my children.
So people or women think with your head, yes Sara is pretty, but that is all there is to her..get your facts, and finally show some guts and stand up for what you beleive, do you really want 4 years of what you have now? I am single and makes a decent living, but still I can hardly take care of myself, I use to pay 40.00 to full my take premium unleaded because I drive a luxry car now it is close to 70.00 tp full my tank.

Lesbiens and gays, unite and vote for Hussein Obama. Although a Muslim, he is one of us.

And he was really really upset when one of his lovers, the choirmaster of Rev.Wright's church, was murdered. Obama claims that he had nothing to do with his murder. His dead lover swore that he would not talk.

Your kids think your a loser Marcy. You got pregnant, you can't afford them, you were to selfish to give them away and you didn't abort them. Shame on you.

Like Lohan we don't want you on our side.

Marcie you have a lot to learn. It's great to see that you hate others based on their religion. I'm sure God would love that.
