After coming out in favor of attacking Iran over its nuclear weapons program, there was some speculation that Lady Gaga had become something of a pro-defense libertarian. Those hopes have been dashed with news that she is an Obama supporter and intends to leave the planet for a self-built one if he loses the election.
This has filled the web with speculation as to why an existing one is not suitable, and why she doesn’t just go back to the one she came from in the first place.
Lindsay Lohan on the other hand gave some encouragement to the right last year when she tweeted on food and gas prices, expressing the opinion that the dollar would be worthless if the Fed keeps printing money. Republicans were beginning to feel that she might be one of them, although there were doubts about whether she could be described as a conservative.
Normally, the kindest description of Lindsay is “troubled,” but at least she is a bit more lucid than Ben Bernanke and Wayne Swan. Perhaps they should seek her advice, either on economics or substances to use that will improve their thinking.
Now she has come out in opposition to tax increases on the ‘rich’ with a tweet in answer to Obama. She replied to his tweet,” “I’ve cut taxes for those who need it: middle-class families, small businesses,” with, “we also need to cut them for those that are listed on Forbes as "millionaires" if they are not, you must consider that as well.”
To avoid confusion to readers; tax cuts in the modern lexicon means not raising taxes. It’s the type of thinking under which walking past an injured person instead of kicking him into the gutter is considered an act of charity and kindness.
There is no news yet as to whether Romney is going to rush her into the campaign or whether he thinks she may have other motives than just plain old fiscal conservatism.
