Lindsay Lohan Endorses Romney, And It's Actually A Really Big Deal
Business Insider ^ | Oct. 12, 2012, 9:44 | Walter Hickey

Posted on 10/13/2012 7:16:25 AM PDT by drewh

Lindsay Lohan came out in support of Mitt Romney yesterday.

While most would, at first glance, write this off as gossip, it's the latest instance of an evolving trend that jeopardizes President Obama's chance at winning the White House.

Lohan, by all accounts, is a typical low-information voter. And low information voters, like it or not, will decide this election.

The first person to pick out this trend was Dave Weigel after sportswriter Buzz Bissinger endorsed Romney after his positive debate performance. Bissinger, Weigel notes, was a low information voter. He watched the debate, took everyone's word for it on the facts, and backed Romney.

As Weigel notes, it's not like either side was falling over themselves to score the lusted-after and enviable Bissinger endorsement.

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.

Wrestler Hulk Hogan has backed Romney because he wants someone to "just take the lead and run."

Lohan said that the reason she was voting Romney was "employment." From The Blaze:

“I just think employment is really important right now,” the troubled star told E!, while at Mr. Pink’s Ginseng Drink event in Beverly Hills, California, on Thursday. “So, as of now, Mitt Romney. As of now.”

Here's why the Obama campaign should be worried.

Lohan is a low information voter convinced that (a) employment is really important, (b) thinks that employment is not being sufficiently handled by the White House right now and (c) thinks that Mitt Romney is better equipped to handle employment.

That arguably logical sequence is all that it takes for a low-information voter to support Mitt Romney. The thing is, there are millions of voters like her. That should terrify the Obama campaign.

If Pee Wee Herman comes out for Mitt, then we will know we have won.

“It’s the hair.”

Then the GOP ticket has the RAT ticket beat hands down.

Total aside: Has anyone else been coming across pennies with the stalks of wheat on the back of them? I got two of them just today. I’m thinking people are using their coin collections to pay bills with. I keep them.

Those Wheat (pre-1959) pennies are worth more than their face value.

Exactly!

I also have scored both a Roosevelt dime (1959) and a Washington quarter (1964) over the last ~1.5 years; just there in my change.

I suspect the ‘yutes’ working the registers have NO idea that our currency was ever silver, so they had 0 idea as they handed it to me, I'm sure.

Me likey!

I have been seeing the same thing. Looks like people are digging into the last of their disposal change. We have found two junk silver dimes in the last week. I think this is just another financial indicator.

Fortunately, as a youngster (now over 30 years ago, yikes !), I became interested in coin collecting. I was an expert by the time I was 7-8 years old, so I was always on the lookout for “gems” (of course, at that time, we were only 17-18 years removed from silver in the coins, so it wasn’t too infrequent I’d find something, and Wheats were just 22-23 years discontinued, so those were quite frequent finds). That was right about when they were minting those ridiculous Susan B. Anthony dollar coins that nobody wanted (I’d go to the bank as a kid and try to grab as many of the huge Eisenhower dollars as possible — I’d be surprised if banks even have those anymore).

“I think this is just another financial indicator.”

My thoughts exactly!

Me too.

I have a ton of Wheats (amongst others).

IIRC, there is one Susan B. Anthony dollar coin that’s worth a few bucks. Without Googling it, I believe it was an error coin.

I’ve never found silver coins until the last year or so.

Ten to one MOST ANYBODY’S WHITE MALE DAD is a Republican.

Seriously, Republicans are the Dad party - grownup and about what’s best for breadwinners.

The chick from Clueless? Cool. I see she’s being savaged for stepping off the plantation. Huff post asks if she’s “less attractive now”. Gotta love those selective feminists over there.

LILO would could do without though, and yes I’m ranking her well below Jenna Jameson who is a true artist who could teach Richard Tisei a thing or 3.

Obama still has that newly fat sack of garbage Lady Gaga.

Very, very interesting. Poor girl is destroying herself because she couldn’t get James Franco to love her. I hope she gets better.

I son’t know what more whack: The crack or the Sackajewia Dollar.

“But never my 2 dollar bills.”

I love using them at strip joints!!!

LiLo or Jenna Jameson...

In a disease free world, Jenna. Too bad they are both chain smoking dragons.

“Obama still has that newly fat sack of garbage Lady Gaga.”

WTH is up with her?
