It didn’t seem possible to defend alleged sexual predator Harvey Weinstein. But Lindsay Lohan is doing just that.



After the election, many liberal celebrities cried “Resist!” Yet, a few brave ones called “embrace.” 



Lindsay Lohan’s out of rehab, and she welcomed herself back to America by substitute-hosting E! network’s Chelsea Lately Monday.

During her opening monologue, Lohan thanked Justin Bieber, Kanye West, Anthony Weiner, and the Royal Baby for keeping the tabloids busy in her absence.



Lindsay Lohan appeared on the CBS Late Show Tuesday and besides being rather contrite was also willing to joke about her problems as well as her next stint in rehab.

At one point she took a drink out of host David Letterman’s coffee mug and said, “I thought this was going to be vodka.”



NBC's David Gregory on Tuesday appeared to make the case that the public really didn't need to know about former CIA Director David Petraeus's affair with biographer Paula Broadwell.

Appearing with him on NBC's Tonight Show was Lindsay Lohan who surprisingly challenged the Meet the Press host on this point (video follows with transcript and commentary):



Despite voting for Barack Obama in 2008, Lindsay Lohan on Thursday threw her support behind Mitt Romney.

Attending the Mr. Pink Ginseng Drink Launch Party in Los Angeles, the embattled starlet told reporters including Fox411 Pop Tarts, "I think unemployment is very important for now, so as of now I think (my vote) is Mitt Romney" (photos courtesy Getty Images).



Actress Lindsay Lohan on Thursday advised Barack Obama to cut taxes "for those that are listed on Forbes as 'millionaires.'"

This happened on Twitter after the President tweeted, “I’ve cut taxes for those who need it: middle-class families, small businesses.”



Rosie O'Donnell made an hysterically ironic comment about Lindsay Lohan on Tuesday's Today show.

While criticizing the Lifetime Network's decision to cast the embattled star as Elizabeth Taylor in an upcoming movie, the recently fired by Oprah Winfrey for terrible ratings comedienne actually said on national television, "The interest level in her has waned significantly" (video follows with transcript and commentary):



Another teen “role model” down the drain – Miley Cyrus, aka, Disney’s “HannahMontana" recently admitted at her 19th birthday party that she smokes pot - a lot of pot. But instead of reporting this sad news to viewers, ABC, CBS and NBC have shrugged off the admission as if it's not at all news.

In a video released by The Daily, Cyrus took the microphone at her birthday party last week in Los Angeles and said, "You know you're a stoner when your friends make you a Bob Marley cake … You know you smoke way too much f***ing weed." This comes as no surprise to those who remember the video released last year of Cyrus smoking a bong claiming it was not weed and in fact the legal hallucinogen, salvia.



Cartoonist Darrin Bell is no conservative. His syndicated comic strip "Candorville," when it does get political, often skews to the left.

But Bell's January 10 strip caught my eye the other day for mocking a dreadfully dopey line uttered by CBS correspondent Priya David-Clemens on the January 3 "CBS Early Show."

"Gandhi likely never had a year like [Lindsay] Lohan's 2010," David-Clemens noted in a report on the actress that began by noting the celebrity's New Year's Day 2011 tweet which quoted Mahatma Gandhi.

Bell's strip depicts Candorville's main character Lemont lying in bed, wishing to skip 2011, asking his friend Susan to wake him up when it's 2012.

Last week my colleague Scott Whitlock noted that the January 3 network morning shows devoted 52 minutes to Lohan coverage and only 20 seconds to a controversial recess appointment by President Obama.

Below you'll find the comic strip and the video in question from the 7:30 a.m. EST hour of the January 3 "Early Show":



Have you noticed that with each passing year, Halloween has become less about kids wearing scary costumes to go trick-or-treating and more about women dressing up as French maids, prostitutes, and Playboy bunnies?

Although this concept was first brought to my attention when I took my daughter to see Lindsay Lohan in the hit film "Mean Girls" a number of years ago, the sexual imagery since has become more and more lurid.

Consider that this year, some of the outfits projected by CNBC.com to be in the most demand are sexy "Sesame Street" costumes (h/t Big Hollywood):



Shortly after noon today, during a story about actress Lindsay Lohan's latest legal woes, some footage of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin (R) made it into the B-roll loop.

A case of some "Mean Girls" in the editing room, or just an innocent mix-up? I think it's the latter [h/t Tim Graham and Yahoo's Holly Bailey]:
