    Lindsay Lohan has a lot on her mind. And, it follows, her Twitter account—thus providing the Internet with the latest edition of Ms. Thing Goes to Washington. Or rather, tries to take it to Washington, with varying results.

    LiLo took to Twitter following President Barack Obama's rousing nomination-accepting speech at the Democratic National Convention last night, and seemed to make a plea for what might be the most specific tax cut ever requested.

    Lindsay stated her case in a response to a tweet sent out by Obama.

    "I've cut taxes for those who need it: middle-class, families, small businesses," he wrote.

    "@BarackObama we also need to cut them for those listed on Forbes as "millionaires" if they are not, you must consider that as well."

    Right. Clear enough for you?

    Unfortunately, Lindsay didn't elaborate on her platform, but such are the limitations of proffering governmental budget cuts in 140 characters or less. Still, it seems unclear what, exactly, she's after, though it seems like she's making a plea for those erroneously labeled millionaires (um, on a very specific list of famous people put out by a certain magazine), though as we're pretty sure the IRS doesn't consider the Forbes listmakers the final arbiters of who pays what, we can't be sure.

    Still, Lindsay at least seemed to enjoy the rest of Obama's speech, calling it "short and to the point," before directing her Twitter attentions elsewhere.

    She quickly veered off the topic of politics and onto the VMAs, posting a photo of herself watching the show and declaring that she was "so glad" Chris Brown took home a moonman. Later still, she took to propositioning some of the night's big winners online.

    "@onedirection when are you in NYC next or LA?! Want to do a track @NICKIMINAJ wanna join? @ladygaga you too?"

    Sadly, there seemed to be no response. But little matter, as Lindsay was back online this morning, spreading her good cheer.

    "just sending love, prayers and strength to #PrinceHarry," she wrote. We're sure he appreciates it.
