Lindsay Lohan and George W., Separated At BirthS

  • The similarities between George W. Bush and Lindsay Lohan never cease to amaze us. Both have substance abuse problems. Both claim to be clean. Both drink while claiming to be clean. Both don't show up for work (Georgia Rule, The G8 Summit) when they've been drinking too much while claiming to be clean. And most importantly, both are spoiled rich kids who don't take the world around them very seriously. The fact that one's a 20-year old teen star and the other is the leader of the free world? A minor detail. A minor detail that scares the bejesus out of us on a daily basis. [Tennessee Guerilla Women]

  • And in today's other celeb-sentencing story: George Michael gets community service. We assume he'll actually serve his sentence as opposed to having a withdrawal-induced breakdown and trying to run away home. [USA Today]
  • An Englishman who shook his infant daughter so violently that her brain hemorrhaged is going to anger management classes. Um way too little, way too late, anyone? [BBC]
  • The only message of hope we've seen all day: The Spice Girls reunion concert is ON! We are so dusting off our old CD's now. [People]
  • Correction: This site brings us infinite more joy than the Spice Girls tour. Just look. [BoingBoing]
