Michael Lohan Takes On Obama

By: Betsy Waldman / September 18, 2008

Looks like Michael Lohan is trying to score brownie points with daughter Lindsay in the wake of the once-estranged pair’s recent tenuous truce.

Outraged that the Barack Obama campaign rejected Lindsay’s offer of assistance, MiLo did what he does best: he ran off whining to the first reporter’s microphone that he could find.

“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,” Lohan fumed, according to OK! Magazine.

“Lindsay is gifted—she has a wonderful heart and she can and will affect millions of people in a very positive way. She is here to stay,” Lohan ranted on. “Obama might have eight years, and then he will be giving lectures. Who knows, maybe Lindsay will give him a part in one of her movies.”

Yeah, absolutely. A wonderful heart and boundless positive energy. Who wouldn’t want to harness that sort of power in their bid for the White House?

Maybe Papa Lo should really stick it to that mean old Obama and sign on with Team Palin. He seems to share a lot of common ground with them.
