Skip to comments.Why Lindsay Lohan's Endorsement of Romney Is Kinda Important
Posted on 10/12/2012 3:05:53 PM PDT by drewh
So, Lindsey Lohan plans on voting for Mitt Romney this November, according to a bit of information released by E! News.
Now, I generally discount the words of a serial rehab center frequenter as much as anyone, but Business Insider has given me a reason to be concerned:
Lohan, by all accounts, is a typical low-information voter. And low information voters, like it or not, will decide this election.
BI's Walter Hickey then notes that Lohan isn't alone in her low-information selection of a candidate to back, making note of Friday Night Lights author Buzz Bissinger:
Bissinger was a low information voter. He ignored the election, watched the debate, took everyone's word for it on the facts, and backed Romney.
But Bissinger is emblematic of millions of Americans. These people don't follow politics and plan to vote based on what little information they've gleaned.
Basically, it seems as if things are coming down to the fact that tangential things that may have won Obama the last election (potentially the first black president; a Democrat running following a widely-reviled Republican administration; convincing the electorate with simple introductions to complex issues) are working against him in this election.

Lindsay, I love you. All is forgiven. I left my number on the wall. 867-5309.
Looks like voting GOP is as “cool” as voting for the black guy last time around.
I think Perdogg will want to give her his number as well. ;-)
Oh, that hurts so good!
Train wreck endorsed Obama and people think this is a good thing??
Train wreck endorsed Romney and people think this is a good thing??
Dang, if O is losing the low-information voters, who does he have left? I believe that is his key demographic, ahead even of the illegal and the dead.
Absolutely. If even a brain-dead Hollywood train wreck like Lohan is smart enough to recognize that Obummer is an incompetent boob that will bring additional brain-dead Hollywood train wrecks and their followers along. It's a good thing.
“These people don’t follow politics and plan to vote based on what little information they’ve gleaned.”
Well, how about that! Weren’t these the very voters they cultivated in 2008?
I hate to refer to Lindsay as a shepherd, however, her followers are in fact sheep, and so she is one of a growing number of shepherds.
The significance of Lindsay is part of a broader movement that's starting to gain traction.
'Cool' people are withdrawing their support for Obama, giving permission to their followers to consider doing the same.
For these people to even question their blind loyalty to Obama, the perfect man, represents the fundamental destruction of his brand.
The fundamental thing that keeps this type of Obama supporter in the cage, is an absence of asking themselves, rather than their idols, who's cool. Hollywood is now providing leadership in questioning.
It translates indirectly towards the surge, because in order to flip an Obama voter, the intellectual hypnotic spell must first be broken. That is the role some 'stars' are playing for Romney.
As with the empty chair - Clint was the lead on this - the first to give the 'stars' permission to give their fans permission.
Without a doubt low-information voters decide presidential elections. That’s why the most charismatic candidate always wins. Romney was clearly more charismatic than Barack in the first debate. I also have to wonder if these low-info voters will even bother watching the next 2 debates. The first was such a blow-out, they may feel they simply don’t need to waste time gathering any more information.
Apparently she’s not eligible to vote. Needs to register.
Anyway, earlier, there was a mini-scandal in his campaign fund raising group where this ol'gal found out about some Hollywood Lesbians (the worst kind I am sure) who had complained to somebody who is someone who knew a Republican that THEY, the lesbians, weren't getting what they wanted out of the Democrats ~ to wit, lower taxes, income averaging ~ very important to people who work on erratic schedules, depreciation for costumes and such, and some other stuff ~ so, could they get together with someone from the RNC about their coming across with lots of loot.
Somebody on Mike's staff arranged to hold a cocktail party/beer party at a large tent in Hollywood that had a lesbian theme bar.
Somebody didn't want the RNC putting money into buying lesbians likker, and complained to the Washington Post, which just went out of its nut condemning lesbian stuff ~ ? ~ ? ~ Big mistake on their part I think.
My understanding was Lindsay Lohan herself was the brain trust behind the deal, and now she comes out and tells us 'Hey yo.... ~ I"m translating.... vote Republican ~ it's good for you ~ it's good for me" ~ and so it is that the RNC investment in a couple of mai tais at a lesbian theme bar may have added a major California power center ~ lesbian actresses ~ to our force field.
Let's see Priebus beat that!
