All that backlash Clueless star Stacey Dash received earlier this month for tweeting her support of Mitt Romney seems only to have fired her up.
“Fighting the good fight. Godspeed. @reppaulryan @MittRomney #Romney/Ryan20,” she wrote yesterday, posting the above awkward photo of herself and Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan. The unintended consequence of this photo, and its late October timing, may be that the unlikely duo becomes a brand new Halloween costume meme. We’ve seen so many Paul Ryans out there already, a Stacey Dash impersonator would get points for extra currency. (For added impact, we recommend those in warmer climates don the red Baywatch-esque swimsuit she wore in her first controversial twitpic.)
We weren’t exactly looking to base our votes on what the ex-Single Ladies star thinks, but good for her for sticking to her guns, we guess. She followed up the photo with a blog post this morning titled, “I Believe 2012.”
“Governor Romney is the best choice to be our next President,” Dash wrote. “By creating 12 million jobs, giving equal work for equal pay,by giving incentives and cutting loopholes, by keeping us safe and strong as a country of Super Power.” Er, she kinda got that work/pay thing backwards, right?
“Yes, it is true, he is rich,” she added. “So what better person to lead us to economic prosperity than someone who has attained it.”
