Lindsay Lohan is coming to White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Forget George Clooney and Reese Witherspoon. The White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner guest destined to soak up the most attention will most likely be . . . Lindsay Lohan.

Media Bistro’s Fishbowl DC reports that Greta Van Susteren of Fox News and her husband, John Coale, are bringing Lohan to the annual celeb-political event at the Washington Hilton on Saturday. Which means the off-probation actress will probably be hitting the D.C. party scene Friday and Saturday nights.

What will she wear to the dinner — something flashy, or more in line with her courtroom-chic apparel? Will she go out of her way to be on her best, good-girl behavior in light of her recent troubles? Will Capitol Hill figures be stumbling over themselves to get a picture with her, or will creating such photographic evidence be deemed politically risky? (Uh, I’m thinking the former.) Is the writer of President Obama’s speech furiously figuring out how to insert a Lohan joke?

Truly there’s a lot to ponder here. Got a question you’d love for me to ask Lohan if I am able to corral her at Saturday’s event? And I do mean a relatively serious one, you guys. I’m not going to ask if she still has the necklace or if she can give me directions to the morgue.

If you have some ideas, drop your potential questions into the comments section below. This year, the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner is streaming live on C-SPAN and TMZ .

When she isn’t at a movie theater or writing about movies, Jen Chaney is ... um ... probably at home, watching a movie.
