Oh good, Lindsay Lohan is voting for Mitt Romney

Another celebrity endorsement Romney could probably do without

At the heels of "Clueless" actress Stacey Dash's recent Romney endorsement, the GOP hopeful has picked up another celebrity fan. When E! news asked Lindsay Lohan if "she was keeping up" with the election, she said: "I just think employment is really important right now." How is that a substantive statement? Only LiLo knows. But she followed it up with, "So, as of now, Mitt Romney. As of now."

Her enthusiasm for Obama waned gradually. Of her political switch, she said, "It's a long story, but you're going to have to wait for that." (On "E! True Hollywood Story" perhaps?)

Lohan's endorsement comes a month after she tweeted for the president to cut taxes across the board, "for those who need it: middle-class families, small businesses" and even "those that are listed on Forbes as 'millionaires.'"
