Lindsay Lohan blogs about Sarah Palin
EmptyComplete 2008 election coverage
NEW YORK -- Lindsay Lohan is getting political.
The actress took to her MySpace blog Tuesday to post her thoughts Republican John McCain's running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, and the revelation that Palin's unmarried 17-year-old daughter is pregnant.
"I've been watching the news all morning, like everyone else -- and (I) keep hearing about the issues related to 'teen pregnancy.' ... Well, 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 wrote.
Lohan suggested Palin "focus on delivering some words and policy with stronger impact like Joe Biden," Democrat Barack Obama's running mate.
The actress, who will guest star on ABC's "Ugly Betty" this season, then put out a plea to parents.
"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 (birth control, condoms, etc.)," she wrote.
Lohan's blog has become a sounding board for her this summer. She lashed out at her father, Michael, on her blog Thursday, calling him a "public embarrassment" after he said in an interview with E! that Lohan gal pal Samantha Ronson was "using" his daughter.
She's also used her blog to recommend music (Annie Lennox's "Walking on Broken Glass" was a pick) and search for a particular ice cream.
Lohan's publicist, Leslie Sloane-Zelnik, confirmed that Lohan had written the Palin post, but did not respond to requests for further comment.
