The Top 10 Secret Reasons Why Rick Santorum Needed That Photo Of Lindsay Lohan

Although the truth is already out there that Rick Santorum, the right-winger from Pennsylvania who suspended his campaign for the presidency did indeed go in for the Lindsay Lohan photo opt, the reasons are still unclear. Why Lohan was even at the fancy shmancy 98th annual White House Correspondents Dinner on Saturday is also still baffling; in fact, so much so it might just be best to assume she snuck in, as she tends to do occasionally, but not wanting to make a scene as if it were some hipster warehouse party out in Brooklyn, White House security just shrugged and threw the woman a bone for a change. However, that still is not as perplexing as Santorum’s behavior and what appears to be nothing short of fandom (read: groupie.)

If we’re to break it down, it does make sense that Santorum might be a bit starstruck by all the “celebrities” at the dinner. He is, after all, just some politician who tried to make a bid for the presidency but fell short. Him wanting to photograph Lohan with Fox News host Greta Van Susteren may seem almost normal, but when he was asked about it later (and the fact that he asked for one of LiLo alone), he fumbled over his words and pretty much denied the moment ever happened. Poor Lindsay. I guess it’s true that some memories can be easily forgotten.

So why did he need that photo of Lindsay Lohan “alone” so badly? Here at Crushable, we came up with the top 10 reasons.
