shyne on bright star

Five Shockingly Living People Who Endorsed Mitt Romney

your rapper has just the right shyne

The Washington Free Beacon lists the five most amazingly Romney-endorsing “celebrities” of the 2012 cycle, and let me tell you, guys, these people are all somehow still alive, probably.

1. Lindsay Lohan

The “Mean Girls” star and all-around party girl recently announced that she was voting for Romney. “I just think employment is really important now,” Lohan said to noted news network E!. “So, as of now, Mitt Romney. As of now.”

As of now, she says. When the DTs hit, she’ll gladly vote for whoever runs to the nearest liquor store, but that’s a separate issue.

It is not clear why a Republican would trumpet the endorsement of Lindsay Lohan, who was pretty much in Mean Girls, then Samantha Ronson’s pants, then a pile of cocaine so large Tony Montana simply Biden-grins at it. Anyway, congrats to Mitt Romney. For now.

2. Buzz Bissinger

Buzz Bissinger is the writer of Friday Night Lights (the book, not the movie or TV show that people actually saw), and also a fucking crazy man on Twitter. He endorsed Mittens because Obama had a bad debate, and thinks that Romney will basically do everything Buzz Bissinger ever dreamed of. He is the only actual even remotely famous person on this list.

3. Stacey Dash

We are going to do a Wonkette magic trick. Name the last Stacey Dash movie you saw.

Sponsored Intermission

…It was Clueless. It doesn’t matter if you named another movie, and if you did, you are either lying or paid to watch Cinemax.

Stacey is also black, which is shocking because the only black people who have endorsed Mitt Romney to this point are either elected Republicans, Republican party officials, paid staff members or…no, wait, those are quite literally the only black people who have endorsed him. Congrats on being a party of one, Stacey.

4. Jenna Jameson

The only reason JJ is surprising is because porn stars usually like to be deeply involved with third parties.

5. Shyne

Shyne is a Belizean rapper who was involved in a 1999 club shooting with Puff Daddy, deported in 2009, and cannot return to the United States. As the Free Beacon states:

It is unclear if Shyne can legally vote in the United States.

Although if American rapping negroes without ID can, we see no reason why an upstanding noncitizen ex-felon cannot. Or let James O’Keefe do it for him.

In summary: Romney has been endorsed by an addict who can’t stay out of prison, an angry white guy, a pretty black lady who was famous twenty years ago, a porn star, and a noncitizen felon. Other than the angry white guy, this sounds like every Romney event we’ve ever been to.

    Jenna Jameson at least makes sense because both she and Mitt Romney know so many positions.

    • Toomush_Infer

      But is she naturally black?….

    • mrpuma2u

      Never mind that Willard says he wants to ban porn, but that was probably a lie when he was pandering for Xtian zealot votes. Who knows where he stands on porn this week.

      • BadKitty904

        If he stands on it, he's using it wrong. Damned amateurs…

          Oh, so now YOU'RE A PROFESSIONAL???

          Sorry. Still high offa Joe Biden's debate performance. That John Kennedy line was priceless.

      • Mittaplasia

        But…Mitt IS porn! Really low grade clearance bin porn.

      • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

        Probly back in favour, since Mormons consume more porn than anybody. I was gonna say "than God," but I don't know if s/he's Mormon.

      She's also a supporter because she won't take another four years of an Obama admistration lying down…

    • Lascauxcaveman

      And "Buzz" Bissinger makes sense because of the goofy-name solidarity factor.

      Also supporting "Mitt" this year:

          I did a dead on Peewee impression today from the Tequila dance scene for of my student workers. The blank look I got back reminded me how fast time fllies. I made him pull it up on Youtube and watch it. That reminds me, Fast Timesat Ridgemont High was a good movie too. I was Spicoli.

          • http://Wonkette.com DemmeFatale

            My 25 yr. old girl would have loved your PeeWee impression!

            She once declared that there was no way that a black and white, old movie could be scary.
            So I sat her down and made her watch "Psycho."
            I didn't hear that whippersnapper bullshit anymore.

            Chuck who?

  • finallyhappy

    Stacy Dash is getting a lot of publicity over this- as her career was largely dead- this can only help. if it gets her on a reality show – because somehow in America today being infamous/talentless/a hasbeen can make you big money

    • Mittaplasia

      In America, you can be trending on the internets if enough people say, "Who the hell is THAT?"

    • http://wonkette.com Clancy_Pants

      Talentless? Did you not see Nora's Hair Salon 2: A Cut Above?

      • emmelemm

        Or the black airplane movie? (Soul Plane?)

        ETA: What? Why did I think she was in that? Maybe I was thinking of the Gwenyth Paltrow stewardess movie.

    • http://Wonkette.com DemmeFatale

      You just know she's hoping for a gig on "Dancing With the Stars," but I don't think she's big enough for that.

    • shelwood46

      W. Kamau Bell did a great bit explaining this last night. It's because if she'd endorsed Obama, she'd be Black Celebrity Obama Supporter #1753 or some such, but now she is Black Celebrity Romney Supporter #1 with a bullet.

      Honestly, I'll just say it. I think Stacey Dash wrote all those hate letters to herself for the attention. And she stole the idea from an episode of "The LA Complex"

      She would still be an improvement over any of the "Young Guns".

  • BigSkullF*ckingDog

    The fact that Lindsey Lohan can't get a job is the most unforgivable thing about the obama administration.

    • http://twitter.com/iburl iburl

      Alcohol, cocaine, car wrecks, and random sex is her full time job, not sure what she's complaining about.

      As far as the "nun habit fetish vote" goes, he still has some work to do.

  • keepwalkin

    As of now, Lindsey Lohan is dead to me.

    “I just think employment is really important now,” Lohan said to noted news network E!. “So, as of now, Mitt Romney. As of now.”

    • mrpuma2u

      I think a Lohan endorsement will actually work against Willard and Junior.

    • SexySmurf

      Wait two weeks and she'll just be dead.

      • BadKitty904

        How will anyone tell?

    • PsycWench

      Sounds like she's pretty committed. or should be.

    • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

      Well, clearly Lohan saw the uproar Stacy Dash created and figured she needed some of that for herself.

      What she seems to have missed is, well, Dash is sorta black and a lot of the furor aimed at her was all about forgetting where she came from…you know, black woman and all that?…the difference being no one cares where Lohan came from because she's a rich white chick and so what the fuck could she possibly know about it all?

      So play her a sad trombone. FAIL

    • kingofmeh

      is she concerned about employment because she understands she might have to get a real job soon?

      • Esteev

        Well then shouldn't she vote for Obama? She's going need job training.On top of rehab.

        • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

    Sorry Lindsay, but your failure to find work the last four years has less to do with Obama's ability to handle the economy and more to do with your inability to handle Grey Goose.

    Allegedly. With votes.

    • Willardbot9000_V2.5

      Yes plus can you ever have a dumber reason to vote Republican? I know Lohan is barely conscious but she was semi-sober during the Bush years. Uh hey Lindsey…put the bottle down for a moment there muffin. Remember George Bush? Mitt Romney's "employment" policy is the same minus the Texan accent and Jesusy rhetoric. That's right dumpling, exactly the same. Now do you feel stupid or what? Also, if you want to start working again you might need to go to AA and lock yourself away for a year or just do porn…you're at that point.

    • Negropolis

      This.

  • dcjdjay

    Stacy Dash will now get a job in a Kirk Cameron production, and show up as "Black person 2 in Car/Shop/Mall" in the credits.

    • BadKitty904

      Or as Mary Magdalen in "Crucifixion – The Musical".

    • Willardbot9000_V2.5

      True…although appearing in a Kirk Cameron production is the same as being unemployed because the budget is so low because who the fuck wants to watch a Kirk Cameron project? Oh yeah, Ray Comfort does while very slowly stroking a banana…

  • noodlesalad

    Dear Wonket, there a lot of other stars not on this list. Goldman Sachs, Blackstone Group, Credit Suisse, etc. etc. Corporations are celebrities too, my friend!

        He's not just "a" Republican, he's Dan Quayle.

      • Negropolis

        That Sajak is a Republican concerns me less than the fact that he's apparently crazy, rabid conservative. Yes, yes, there are still some middle-of-the-road Republicans left in hollywood.

  • punkneverdies

    by the way don't let buzz's personality make you think that Friday Night Lights book isn't a gripping piece of journalism. He seems to have created something bigger and better than his own cretinous self.

      I like Bissinger's work. A Prayer for the City is one of the best books written about Philly that I have ever read. I was a little surprised at how publically and vehemently he went off the rails, especially considering how much he hates blogs…

      Does she even have a licence?

      But, she's white with an American name, so her voter fraud is competely acceptable.

  • YouBetcha

    • Willardbot9000_V2.5

      Yes, like nearly every black person who votes Republicans I really cannot understand it. Seriously, what's the fucking appeal? Don't those "take my bags and put them in the room" jokes ever get old on retreats? How about hearing how the NAACP and pretty much every pro-black community organization is more racist than the KKK while also hearing how the KKK was mostly about morality. I mean JC, how the fuck do you make it through a single event with these people without clocking one for being condescending and telling you for the millionth time how you're less intelligent than a wooden piece of white cardboard who reads talking points? I know why Herman Caine does it…to get the best hooker tips. But seriously, come on….

  • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

    However, as I posted over in Wonkville, Luke Skywalker endorsed Obama

    • http://wonkette.com ManchuCandidate

      Aw Uncle Biden!!

    • BadKitty904

      The Force is strong with that one…

    • gullywompr

      These are not the endorsements I'm looking for.

    • Willardbot9000_V2.5

      Yes hey give Hamill credit…sure he didn't age well and most people only know him as Luke Skywalker but he does a pretty fucking awesome Joker voice. I was midly surprised to find out he's the voice of the Joker in those rocksteady Batman games (which are amazing to put it mildly) and the guy gets steady work as a voice actor. Which is a lot more than I can say for any of these Romney supporters here. By the way, I actually heard alan colmes interview Victoria Jackson…she's as dumb as she is crazy. My favorite was her proof that Obama is Satan which of course, she could not produce…but it's there! Jerome Corsi showed it to her!

      • tessiee

        "My favorite was her proof that Obama is Satan which of course, she could not produce"

        I read this as: "Obama is Satan, which of course, she could not pronounce".

      • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

        In fairness to Hamill, just after Star Wars was released, he had a major car accident that disfigured his face and required massive reconstructive surgery. This is why Empire opens with the scenes on the tauntaun, so they could explain why his face so radically changed between movies.

    • Negropolis

      I'd have thought Luke was a Republican, fighting an Evil Empire and all.

  • JustPixelz

    Living people are people, my friend.

    Jenna Jameson is the perfect Romney supporter. She used swallowing whoppers.

    Lindsay Lohan seems about right. Her break was in Parent Trap playing twins who were opposites.

    • Willardbot9000_V2.5

      True and being a long lived porn star Jenna Jameson knows firsthand what being fucked daily and intimately well what a Cleveland steamer feels like. So now by endorsing the Mittbot she has decided to make us all feel it…sort of like when Paul Ryan gave himself his first hard on while looking at himself and hasn't been able to stay out of the camera since then.

  • vodkamuppet

    Damn, Victoria Jackson still can't get recognized. Or Blair from Facts of Life whose name I still can't remember even though she's on a show I guiltily watch every week.

    Could there be a more ironically titled Lindsay Lohan movie than Herbie Fully Loaded?

      Y'know, I hadn't thought of that…

      The Parent Trap

    • Lascauxcaveman

      I liked that movie; watched it with my kids. But for teh first 20 minutes or so, I just assumed 'Herbie' was the name of her brassiere.

      In my cups, I believe Obama will at least decriminalize possession and dismantle the drug-prison cycle for marijuana in his second term, if not legalize it outright. He's kind of hinted in that direction in the past, and I don't think it was a coincidence that his "chooming" was detailed this year.

      • Willardbot9000_V2.5

        Isn't Ron Jeremy like in PETA or something? I think from that terrible VH1 show that he was he is in PETA. I'll bet endorsing the guy who stuck his dog on the roof of the car for a cross country drive and who also had a vet shoot a lame horse up with enough pain killers to addle a blue whale just so he could sell it at profit (look up Super Hit and be prepared to think the Seamus incident was mild by comparison) to other dancing horse enthusiasts goes over really well with PETA people.

      • shelwood46

        Rowe claimed that his appearance at that Romney rally wasn't an endorsement. He says he also asked Obama (in 2009) to let him talk about proles, but never got a response. He recently made the same request to the Romney campaign, who did give him the okay to get up and talk about… stuff that that the Romney campaign absolutely, completely does not support. Somehow, Rowe did not think that speaking at a Romney campaign event with Romney would give people the impression Rowe endorsed him.

        In other news, Mike Rowe is naive and stupid.

      • Willardbot9000_V2.5

        Nope….your facts are out of date. I spent an unholy amount of my life living in Utah and remember when Mormons could suddenly drink Coke. No shit, the LDS church bought this distributor in Utah named Swire Coca-Cola and right on cue the LDS president had a "revelation" that consumption of Coke was suddenly okay. I taunted certain Mormon friends with that one for years. I would have taunted them over the sudden "revelation" about removing racism from their church but a good number of mormons are still VERY, VERY racist.

        • http://www.southsidejohnny.com/ Jukesgrrl

          The night of the first debate, I saw a back-stage video of the Rmoney family relaxing back stage. There was a Coke can on the table in front of them. I wondered about that.

      Busey= Romney, Nolte= Obama. Nick Nolte is an old man but he's still relevant compared to the unmitigated failure on this list. Busey became appropriately considering he is completely insane a born again (and had a stroke, have you seen how fucked up he looks?) so naturally like most completely insane people he supports the GOP. I'm still waiting for the coveted Kiss endorsement though I can almost guarantee to a man and with their past as being humongously greedy easy sell outs it's Mittens.

    On a kind of serious note related to this, it seems that the only thing "cooler", among some of the left and those that lean that way, than voting for the first black president is to abandon the first black president. It's really something that only ever seems to happen on the left. When conservatives are pissed at their people, they either hold their noses and vote or don't vote at all, but rarely have they eve knowingly self-sabotaged, that is, until the rise of the tea party.

    I don't get it, I really don't. The first place we saw this was in the Congress in 2010 when some Dems ran so far to the right they were literally running against the president in their political ads. And, they got rewarded by losing horribly, thank god. Now, it seems to have seeped into the general culture, where the minute the president is down his so-called supporters flee and twist the knife. There is a difference between a simple critique and the kind of disloyalty we're seeing. There is some strange and non-sensical measurement the electorate judge this president by.

    • gullywompr

      Well you know, us liberals, being the party of goodness and light, hold our politicians to a higher standard. In other words, we're whiners.

      Still, I see nothing to merit throwing the President under the bus. It's not like he tweeted dick pics or anything. The man's got my vote (but I suspect you already knew that).

      • Negropolis

        Like I said, I'm not really criticizing Dems in general, but more at the fringes. We seem to lose more of our voters are both ends of the fringe. The far left will actively call for the defeat of a Dem president, and the Democratic right and Dem-leaning independents seem to bolt at the drop of a dime when their president trips up, and it seems even more true this time.

        I only bring this up, because I'm still hearing an unreasonable gnashing of teeth at Obama's debate performance a full week ago. I mean, I complained when it happened, but some of these concern trolls are starting to demoralize the mainstream left. I'm hearing plenty of Dems going around telling peope that we lost the election Thursday, whereas Romney put his foot in his mouth more times and more deeply and damning, and the GOP kept dragging him along even when he seemed as if he didn't want to win the thing. Obama has a single lackluster performance, and suddenly the election is over and we're calling the time of the Obama campaign's electoral death.

        • gullywompr

          Yes but…. Defeatism begets defeatism.

          I love you man, but it's possible that you too are caught up in the narrative that's dragging down the (temporary) poll numbers. Just like there's no reason to throw the prez under the bus, we need to be careful about throwing the party under the bus also too. We all gotta stop this hand wringing over the numbers – this election has been in the bag since the GOP came out with the clown car of candidates before the debates. The war on women reinforced the win, and so has the steadily improving economy, and BTW, Bin Laden is dead and Detroit is alive.

          Smile, and the people around you will smile too. That's liberalism.

          • mille derps

            Thank you!

            I fully understand why Rethugs are excited by Mitt's manic performance (& Obama's subdued performance) last week, but why are intelligent Dems all in a kerfuffle over a sub-par week?

            It is possible to take that Zen 'living in the moment' stuff too far.

          • gullywompr

            Your mention of Zen brought to mind some things. I think it is less about living in the moment, and more about perceiving reality as it really is. The koans try to confuse you with all sort of navel gazing to wonder if a mountain is really a mountain or not (stuff like "there is no mountain"), but in the enlightened state, we see the mountain for what it really is – a mountain.

            We can navel-gaze the polls of a few days, and marvel at the right''s cheering of a few uppercuts to the jaw, and join the despondence of the left over having a round in the ring where our guy took a few hits, but champions are not made in the ring.

            Obama is the real deal, the entire GOP are a bunch of ludicrous, lying clowns. There's not enough racism, fundamentalism, or simply stupidity left in this country to change that. He is going to win, it's as plain as the nose on your face.

    • bobbert

      Some of us older assholes understand that "party politics" is actually the political system that the Framers left us, whether they intended to or not. As long as we continue to play by the rules they left, PARTIES are the the things that drive progress (or regress).

      One consequence of this is that remarkable individual politicians can influence the course of history, but only by influencing the trend of their parties. Another consequence is that there are people who do not subscribe to the idea that parties are the blood-line of politics, and they will attach themselves to candidates based on, I don't know, polls, or random pundits. And, in the main, I imagine they think themselves quite clever to avoid the taint of "party politics".

      They are totally wrong, of course. With our current electoral system (which can be changed only by profound majorities, either at the state or Federal level), parties matter more than anything. But, some of the folks bailing out on the President are former bandwagon-jumpers who are now jumping off. These people are, in the long run, noise.

      Unfortunately, in the short run, they can have a major effect. (See: Reagan).

      Our challenge is to re-assert the fact that there is a fucking difference between the parties, irrespective of the fact that the Democrats may not be exactly what we would like in unicorn world.

      I am a Democrat. I have voted straight D since I could, which was 5 November 1968 (I lost). I happily voted for Bill Clinton (sorry prommie), because he provided a way for the Democrats to regain the Presidency, and the control of SCOTUS nominations. Similarly, I happily voted for Al Gore, John Kerry, and Barack Obama, although in all these cases it was kind of irrelevant, since I live in California. I will again vote for Barack Obama, not because he is half-black, or because he is half-unicorn, or even because I detest Mitt Romney (although I do detest Mitt Romney); but because he is the Demoncrat (sic) candidate.

      I must admit that my worldview even extends to supporting shithead blue-doggie Democrats in districts where blue-doggieness is unavoidable. It's always a choice. Sometimes the choice is between dickhead and intergalactic shit-for-brains.

      Whoops. I'm wandering.

      There is nothing inscrutable in the flight of alleged supporters from the Prez. Some of them are bandwagon-jumpers, and some of them have been waiting for four years to find a good reason to vote against the (inconveniently Democratic) nigger.

      It's pretty obvious: NIGGER NIGGER NIGGER.

      Sorry. I'm drunk, and very intolerant of people that claim to be Democrats, but aren't.

        Really? I find it hard to believe that anyone who really thinks "nigger nigger nigger" actually voted for him in 2008.

        • bloggingbalkanistan

          Agreed. But I do think that at least some of the soft-support (sounds like a Jenna Jameson movie ; ) that said that they moved over to Romney on the basis one debate is holding Obama to a much higher standard than they would a white poltician.

      • tessiee

        I agree with your entire comment, except the part where you called me an asshole.

    • BlueStateLibel

      As of now, the only Dem left with a spine is VP Uncle Joe Biden.

      • finallyhappy

        haha, someone today on FB told me Joe BIden was an ass and so was I for supporting him, also that Joe is against women because he is pro-choice and then quoted some insulting NT bible shit at me. I am so voting for RMoney now- because these remarks and the Bible made me see the error of my ways.

    • shawnthesheep

      I think that's where the subtle racism comes in, holding the first black Pres to a higher standard. It's like people are just waiting for him to make a mistake so they can say, "I knew there was a reason I didn't fully trust that guy." I mean, it's nuts. Andrew Sullivan lost his mind (more than usual) for over a week, calling Obama "lazy" and saying he needed to "turn off sportscenter." I mean, does anyone really think that Obama got to where he is without working his ass off? Seriously? I know Ann Coulter thinks that the Negroes have had it easy in her lifetime, what with all the affirmative action and all of the extra police officers who are nice enough to guard their neighborhoods and stop them on the street to make sure there's nobody bothering them.

        "I think that's where the subtle racism comes in, holding the first black Pres to a higher standard. It's like people are just waiting for him to make a mistake so they can say, "I knew there was a reason I didn't fully trust that guy." "

        Oh, no; now you made me think of the commentator who thought "Jurassic Park" was racist!
        Other guy: What do you mean, racist? Samuel L. Jackson ran the whole thing!
        Commentator: Yeah, and 20 minutes into the movie, it all went to hell in a handbasket. If anybody lived through it, what do you think they'd say? "Gee, Honey, I guess The Black Guy was a little bit in over his head".

        Come to think of it, that's actually not a bad metaphor.

      • PugglesRule

        1) Your handle is totally awesome. Wallace & Gromit approve :D

        2) Those who think Obama is some kind of messiah really need to talk to Michelle about that. I just read a good biography of her (only to 2008) and the author quotes her several times as saying stuff like "He's a good man, someone who could make things a lot better, but he's really only a man."

      Not to worry, pal.
      I think we have this in the bag.
      All the hand-wringing and navel-gazing will bring out the vote.
      Look at the down ticket stuff. People are doing well.
      Unlike the hatred on the right, the subtle racism (thanks shawn) of the left can be over-ridden, because the left can do the right thing (even when it hurts).
