(Newser) – Lindsay Lohan has more (pre-written) obituaries than acting reviews to her credit, but the New York Post takes a moment today to dance on her grave—tracing the onetime singer-dancer-actress lauded by Robert Ebert and Meryl Streep alike to the out-of-work, drama-prone, free-spending rehab candidate of today. What's worse, some say, is that La Lohan hasn't noticed the slide off the A-list. "She still thinks it's 2006," says one gossip blogger. "She's in denial."

LiLo's banned from clubs on both coasts, given to late-night Twitter rants she erases the morning after, and what the Post dubs her "alternate reality" is reinforced by her inner circle. And critics are skeptical of a comeback: "She's still trying to make it with her disease running rampant," says one. "But the self-tanner was the last straw. She's turning herself into Snooki."
