Actress Stacey Dash wants the world to know that she’s not clueless. The actress appeared on Piers Morgan this morning to defend her endorsement of Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney. Dash has taken heat on Twitter after announcing her support for the candidate on the social network earlier this week.

In the interview, the actress says:

“It’s because of the state of the country. I want the next four years to be different. When I watched the governor and his wife on Meet the Press with David Gregory, they spoke to me and they seemed authentic and genuine about what they said about this country about the need for us to be united and move forward.”

Rod McCollum notes over at his blog that Dash also bizarrely employs the words of Martin Luther King, Jr by noting that she is backing Romney “not by the color of his skin but the content of his character”, to which McCollum responds:

Not sure what “content” Dash found in Romney’s “character” besides repeatedly lying, contempt for working people and working to undermine a women’s right to choose what to do with her own body. Keep telling yourself that, hun.
