Bottoming Out… July 8, 2010

I was reluctant to comment on recent events regarding Lindsay Lohan and the media circus surrounding her legal troubles of late, yet I feel compelled to say something at this point since she felt it necessary to invoke quotations from Cato in her tweets.

Is she seriously trying to draw parallels between her situation and “unjust treatment” with respect to prisoners?

Did she seriously try to pass off her vulgar message on her fingernails as “a joke”?  Hint to Lindsay: when making a court appearance, especially one that will determine your freedom, that may not be the best time for making a joke…just a thought.

Is she seriously trying to take up the issue of sentencing guidelines at this (self-serving) juncture?

Is she seriously trying to, in ANY way, shape or form draw a parallel between her situation and that of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, the woman sentenced to death by stoning in Iran?

I thought celebrity hubris and ignorance could no longer shock/anger me… I freely admit to being wrong on that count.  The next logical step would be for Dina to get Amnesty International involved on Lindsay’s behalf.

If this young lady hasn’t hit bottom with these statements and with her recent court showing, then bottom is a place that I truly don’t want to see.  This is scary enough for me.
