Lindsay Lohan is not certainly the first or only celebrity to call Sarah Palin out for one reason or another (namely lack of experience and polarizing prejudices). Only a day after Palin was introduced as the Republican Vices Presidential candidate, Heart asked her to cease and desist using their song for her campaign theme.
Apparently after reading an Associated Press article about Palin’s church’s advocating for the conversion of gays, Lilo had had enough and could take no more:
I find it quite interesting that a woman who now is running to be second in command of the United States, only 4 years ago had aspirations to be a television anchor. Which is probably all she is qualified to be… Also interesting that she got her passport in 2006.. And that she is not fond of environmental protection considering she’s FOR drilling for oil in some of our protected land…. Well hey, if she wants to drill for oil, she should DO IT IN HER OWN backyard. This really shows me her complete lack of real preparation to become the second most powerful person in this country…
I know that the most important thing about this election is that people need to exercise their right to vote, regardless of their choice… I would have liked to have remained impartial, however I am afraid that the “lipstick on a pig” comments will overshadow the issues and the fact that I believe Barack Obama is the best choice, in this election, for president… [source]
She went on to say that while she’d like to see a woman in the white house, she’s disappointed that real issues are being ignored in favor of focusing on Obama’s “lipstick on a pig” comment and advised Palin not to pose any more tabloids.
