(Newser) – Somehow, we don't see Mitt Romney stumping with his latest endorser: Lindsay Lohan. It seems the starlet is concerned with unemployment—and there are so many jokes to make here about why that might be, we won't even go there—and that's why she's voting Romney, she said last night at a launch party in LA. There's apparently more to her support for Romney—"It's a long story, but you're going to have to wait for that," she said, though we're not really sure we want to know. The New York Post notes that LiLo—who called President Obama's victory four years ago "amazing"—tweeted the president last month asking him to cut taxes … for millionaires. Some reactions to her endorsement:

  • Alexander Abad-Santos waxes nostalgic on the Atlantic Wire: "Four years ago, Lindsay Lohan was a lesbian-rights activist, a pro-choice advocate and an Obama supporter. She was in that relationship with Samantha Ronson and laying attacks on McCain running mate Sarah Palin on MySpace (yes MySpace)."
  • "Most of what LiLo knows about unemployment comes from being under house arrest," writes Jessica Wakeman on The Frisky.
  • "Even when you live in a snow globe full of vodka and cocaine, the job crisis weighs heavily on your mind," writes Anna Breslaw on Jezebel. "Not to harp on Stacey Dash's much-ballyhooed Republican endorsement, but now the two of them can dress up for Halloween as Mitt's top half and Mitt's bottom half."
  • "We would bet real money on Lohan not being registered to vote, or at least not showing up, but at least she is focused on the issues most relevant to her life right now, dark as it may be," writes Joe Coscarelli on Daily Intel. He also compares her current career trajectory to "that of the dude from the Dell commercials, but with more arrests."
