Do as I say Not as I do -- Hollyweird Angst with Obama?

From our friends at the Left Coast Report we receive the following shocking news:

Lindsay Lohan’s Dad Bawls Out Obama

"Lindsay Lohan has stepped forward and volunteered to campaign for Barack Obama. But the Obama campaign rejected her offer, which made Lindsay’s dad hopping mad.

"Now Michael Lohan is letting the world know exactly what he thinks about the Democratic nominee.

"It seems that Lindsay had offered to host some campaign events in order to attract younger voters.

"The actress “'is not exactly the kind of high-profile star who would be a positive for us,” a high-ranking source inside the Obama campaign told the Chicago Sun Times.

"Friends of Lohan said that she was hurt by the Obama rebuff.

"Her father blasted the Illinois senator: “For Barack Obama to condemn my daughter for past indiscretions when he admitted to the exact same himself is indicative of what kind of president he would be,” Mr. Lohan told Fox News. “His visions of a positive future for this country should be representative of a positive future for people as well. It is looking beyond the difficult times and letting go of the past.”

"Referring to the tumultuous life that Obama lived as a youth, Mr. Lohan admonished the Democratic nominee some more, pointing out the hypocrisy of moving beyond his own past while rejecting Lindsay because of hers.

“Obviously, Obama can do this for himself and not others, when in fact a good president should have hope for all,” he said. "

You draw your own conclusions.....

I've got to ask, where exactly does the objective part of this website come into play? You've got a tasteless little banner about Ted Kennedy, and you're quoting Lindsey Lohan's dad? Seriously? Is there anyone outside of this website, or Fox News that cares what Lindsey Lohan's dad has to say about ANY candidate? Would you have posted this quote if her dad has said he was fine with it, and was still voting for Obama? Doubtful
