Whatever momentum Joe Biden may have established last night for the Obama campaign is gone this morning with the news that Lindsay Lohan has endorsed Mitt Romney…
"I just think employment is really important right now," LiLo explained when asked if she was keeping up with the election. "So, as of now, Mitt Romney. As of now."
Forget the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Council of Economic Advisers. If there's one person who knows unemployment, it's Lohan.
And that's not the only reason this endorsement matters…
* As Paul Waldman wrote last night, "What really matters is how this debate was perceived by people so goddamn stupid they can't figure out whom to vote for." Now we have our answer.
* Romney has now earned the endorsement of Creed's Scott Stapp, Stacey Dash and Lindsay Lohan. If washed up cultural ephemera had an electoral vote, we wouldn't need an election.
* Hey, some of us have very fond memories of Mean Girls and haven't been following entertainment news in the meantime!
So pack your bags, lib'ruls. I hear Canada is beautiful this time of year.
