Obama - Really Does Put A Different Twist On "Lipstick"
With the Obama*Biden campaign in full meltdown (some polls are showing a 20 percentage point swing in some key demographics since the beginning of the political convention season), Barack Obama is beginning to smell like Bob Dole.
Talk about a classless and unimaginative approach on an issue less political attack ... we have a totally ill-advised comment. He was calling the candidate for Vice-President of the United States on the Republican ticket, Alaska State Govenor Sarah Palin, a pig.
How classy, intelligent, progressive, and totally Soros Wing-Daily Cos Democrat Political Party like was the junior Senator from Illinois, Barack Obama.
With this statement as an exhibit as a standard of political discourse ... the Democrat Party can forget seeing the Executive Branch of government for at least the next four years!
This act by Barack Obama shows us all a different "twist" on sexism.
This from the Wall Street Journal -
What’s the difference between a more hopeful kind of politics and old-fashioned attacks? Lipstick.
Barack Obama says the John McCain-Sarah Palin policies don’t represent change, they’re “just calling the same thing something different.”
“You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig,” Obama said during a town-hall style event here Tuesday night.
The comment played on Republican vice presidential candidate Palin’s joke during the Republican National Convention that the only difference between a pit bull and a hockey mom was lipstick.
“You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called ‘change,’ it’s still going to stink,” Obama said. “After eight years, we’ve had enough of the same old thing. It’s time to bring about real change to Washington and that’s the choice you’ve got in this election.”
This isn’t the first time in a 24-hour period that lipstick has become an issue. As he was introducing Democratic vice presidential nominee Joe Biden, Missouri Rep. Russ Carnahan said Palin had “zero experience in national government, zero experience in foreign affairs. There’s no way you can dress up that record, even with a lot of lipstick.”
Republicans struck back, calling the attacks on Palin old-style Washington attacks that run counter to Obama’s promise of change. “Sarah Palin’s maverick record of reform doesn’t need any ‘dressing up,’ but the Obama campaign’s condescending commentary deserves some dressing down,” says RNC spokeswoman Amber Wilkerson.
