Lohan mugshot used by pro-drinking and driving group.

(click ad for closer look)
This is the top part of a full-page ad in today's USA Today from the American Beverage Institute warning us about evil "activists" who want to put ignition interlocks—aka in-car breathalyzers—in every car in America. In the ad's copy, they say it's a good idea for people like Drinky Lohan, but bad news for people like you and me who just want to enjoy a beer or two at the ballgame or a champagne or three at weddings. The Institute has created a Website,, to present their pro-moderate drinking opinions. Me, I want to hear where Lindz standz on this important issue. Also, if she's gonna sue the wine-stained pants off of the ABI for this publicity stunt. update: And as Gawker points out, they spelled Lindsay's name wrong. previously in celebs in ads: Bobbie De Niro sez: get the FUCK out of my city; Gwynnie Paltrow is African; can't spell anthropomorphism without Mohr; and more GAP celeb pap.

What a dumb ad, from a dumb special interest group. Burden 100% of the people to control the <1% causing the problem.

I mean, really, everyone that has an I.Q. larger than their suit size recognizes that drinking and driving is wrong. Some of us are just better at rationalizing. Wanna make a quality PSA? Call out the evils of rationalizing.

This sounds like it's straight out of the Center for Consumer Freedom/Rick Berman handbook. Anybody know if there is a connection? I'm searching but no luck so far.
