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."

oooh marcy, marcy, marcy. sarah palin says she is going to be a proud grandparent to her daughter's baby because WHAT OTHER CHOICE DOES SHE HAVE? is she gonna be angry and bitter and say "oh i am really gonna regret this baby." what's done is done, and any good woman would realize that and try to make the best of the situation for the CHILD'S SAKE. anyway... and how do you know your daughter was a virgin until she was 19? hahaha real funny that you believe that. i'm sure a lot of us have told our mothers that. SOMEBODY is gullible. =) and please don't complain about how much it costs to put premium into your luxury car... you bought a luxury car! if you can't afford it and its upkeep you shouldn't have bought it. typical.

LOL how humiliating for Lindsay. She thinks she's got so much clout in Hollywood that she can tell politicians who to pose for and who not to pose for....then offers her services to someone running for President of the US and is not only denied but
basically told to take a seat. Her hero thinks she's a worthless representative for him.

So, I'm assuming TMZ called McCain's headquarters for a quote and now makes it look like they're jumping up and down to talk about this trash. Good grief, talk about a set up! When Lindsey Lohan is on your side....you better run to the other side!! McCain/Palin for me! TMZ you're useless.

Bringing up Nobama's association with Williams Ayers is ALWAYS an important issue.

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

I am glad to see the BO camp focused on the other issues like playing politics with our troops in Iraq. BO fit for POTUS?
more like fit to be a traitor!
