Leave Bristol Palin alone, Lindsay Lohan says!
Well, sort of.
On her latest MySpace blog, Lohan writes that discussion about Bristol's impending baby with Levi Johnston is distracting people from learning about Sarah Palin; you know, the Republican nominee for Vice President.
Lindsay herself then adds a salient point, however, that connects Bristol's pregnancy with part of her mother's platform.
“I think the real problem comes from the fact that we are taking the focus off of getting to know Sarah Palin and her political views, and what she can do to make our country a less destructive place," Lohan blogged, adding:
"It's distracting from the real issues, the real everyday problems that this country experiences... I get Sarah Palin's views against abortion, but I would much prefer to hear more about what she can do for our country, rather than how her daughter is going to have a child no matter what. Maybe focus on delivering some words and policy with stronger impact like Joe Biden."
Lindsay Lohan asks for less coverage of Bristol Palin and more focus on what's wrong with Governor Palin's views on sex education.
Lohan then went on to stress the importance of sex education, a topic that Palin has stated she believes should revolve solely around abstinence-only teaching. In 2006, the Governor said any "explicit sex-ed programs will not find my support."
"I think that parents need to recognize how important it is to talk to their children about the things that can result from being sexually active if they aren't protecting themselves," Lohan writes.
If Palin, as such a staunch supporter of abstinence-only education, cannot teach her own child to refrain from pre-marital sex, might that be a sign that such a platform is ineffective?
