YOUTUBE VIDEO: Obama Smears McCain-Palin As Lipstick On A Pig
Let let let's just list this for a second.
John McCain says he's about change too. Exce- and and so I guess his whole angle is - watch out, George Bush - except for economic policy, healthcare policy, tax policy, education policy, foreign policy, and Karl-Rove-style politics, we're really gonna shake things up in Washington.
That's not change.
That's that's just callin' sumpin' the same thing somethin' different.
But you know, you can't, you know, you you can put, ah, lipstick on a pig, it's still a pig.
Tom Toles, Cartoon, September 5, Washington Post
WATCH OUT, MR. BUSH!
WITH THE EXCEPTION OF ECONOMIC POLICY AND ENERGY POICY AND SOCIAL ISSUES AND TAX POLICY ANDFOREIGN POILCY AND SUPREME COURT APPOINTMENTS AND ROVE-STYLE POLITICS,
WE'RE COMING IN THERE TO SHAKE THINGS UP.
Obama started in with Toles's "Exce-", but quickly realized that he didn't start the joke correctly, so he went back and filled in the preamble to the joke, and then he returned later to Toles's "Except" once again.
All of this was pre-scripted, right down to the lipstick on the pig.
Remember that Ben Smith had to file two different "lipstick" stories within three hours on Tuesday, so "lipstick" was definitely sent out as a talking point to all Team Obama members:

Outstanding find. Thanks!
Wow! This should blow up nicely!
Obama can’t say that he and Tom Toles routinely share lines in speeches...
Well, what is anybody going to DO about it? !
Someone should get this to Drudge. This is CLEARLY plagiarism. It’s a shame Biden didn’t say it.
It's OK...really. :)
It looks like Biden is bringing his experience to bear on the campaign!
Very interesting, indeed! Thanks so much for posting this — and here’s a big thank you to “PatrioticLady” on the PUMA forum as well.
I’m still wondering who scripted the stinky fish line though! LOL
Man, Obama REALLY screwed up big-time. I hope he enjoyed the laughs he got today - I don’t think many will be laughing tomorrow...
PS — The NY Post is running with this story on the Front Page today (9/10). For the story that will be printed please see this link:
(You can see the Front Page at: http://www.nypost.com )
FReepers may also wish to add their voices to combat liberal whining in the comments section.
See post #9 — The Post is running with the coverage of Obama’s “joke” on the cover later this morning...
As for this gem exposed here — I suggest as many people as possible email this thread to as many conservative talk show hosts, and bloggers as possible. An email to your local news channels may be worth a shot as well — try FOX first! LOL
It is weird how the Hillary supporters are turning out to be the sane members of the Democratic Party.
Remember the old saying that a Conservative is a former liberal who has been mugged? Well, Hillary’s supporters got “more than” mugged via Obama and the DNC. I just hope they will keep in mind all of the slanderous things they are hearing right now in 4 years, and will at the very least keep their minds open and check facts now that they KNOW the DNC and their favorite liberal media “stars” and activists are not the most “truthful” group of people out there.
Good idea. More than a few things have disappeared “down the memory hole” over the last year or so...
This is so childish. Quoting from cartoons and calling people pigs and old stinky fish.
Yep..all bi-products of Operation Chaos!
It's almost worse than childish.
What we have here is a candidate for the presidency - a man who is just a few paltry electoral college votes away from having his finger on "The Button" - who can't even come up with original material on the stump and has to plagiarize second-rate [frankly rather awful] editorial cartoonists.
Obama is in so far over his head that it's scary.
And if the mainstream media can swing a state like Ohio or Florida or Virginia, then this moron would be your next Commander in Chief.
...who ran virtually unopposed in all prior elections:
1) Obama challenged qualifying signatures on all his Illinois State Senate Democrat primary opponents' applications (see Alice Palmer), running unopposed,
2) Obama had sealed divorce records of his Democrat primary opponent Blair Hull exposed, revealing accusations of wife-beating and forcing Hull out of the primary,
3) Obama had sealed divorce records of his Republican opponent Jack Ryan exposed, revealing accusations of wanting to perform public sex acts and forcing Ryan out of the general election.
4) Obama claims his legislative records in Illinois were not archived, and presumably destroyed, leaving no paper trail of his past government experience. (See last paragraph of article)
It seems that Obama doesn't really have the experience of running for office that he claims. How can someone who says running for president is enough experience to be president, when he's constantly showing his inexperience on the stump?
One thing that will be interesting to see: The cartoonist’s reaction, especially since it looks like he’s a cartoonist for the WaPo. Will he stay silent? Will he say, “It’s ok that he plagiarized, it’s all good!”? Will he say he told Obama he could use it, unattributed? Who knows...but could be interesting.
Apparently, its been floating around some other pro-0bama sites, although they've already tried to wash that one down the memory hole.
Holy Shiite, Batman.
I am disappointed in Obama. His autobiography is very well written and shows a thoughtful man of intelligence. Yet campaigning lately we see worn out, trite phrasing and now outright copying. What has happened?
Yeah, I've been wondering the same thing.
The other possibility is that Team Obama ordered Toles to write that cartoon, but Obama is shaping up to be such a moron that I just can't see the chain of events breaking in that direction.
I mean - if this weren't so frightening [as regards a candidate who is pretty darned close to getting his finger on "The Button"] - it would really be kinda sad - Obama is so stupid that he can't even think of original material for his stump speech, and he's forced to memorize second-rate political cartoons, and, even there, he can't memorize the cartoons correctly and tell the jokes properly - he's such a buffoon that he botches the jokes he's supposed to have memorized.
And then somebody in his campaign - Michelle maybe? Axelrod? Soros? - comes up with the bright idea of comparing Sarah Palin [the hottest thing in heels since, I dunno, Rita Hayworth] with a pig?
This Obama campaign might just start making Dukakis and Mondale and McGovern seem like political geniuses.
Obama can't even tell a joke right? Sad.
On 9/08 Obama’s camp claimed Obama didn’t know the comments came from a Toles’ cartoon and were told to him by a friend. Once he found out they came from the cartoon, from then on, he attributed it to Toles.
Unfortunately, in his pig/lipstick speech on 9/09, Obama did not credit Toles.
I love PUMA patrioticlady!
And, you! ;o)
^ 5 to you both!
Probably from visiting one of my favorite sites:
Or maybe he is a closet Lars Larson fan.
What does that mean? Ie. is it relevant to our posts?
And, yeah, I know it has been pulled. Ironically, LGF has repeatedly documented the pulling of embarrassing threads at that site.
BTTT, Send to Drudge
Jack Cashill believes that "Dreams From my Father" was ghost-written:
The Mansourian Candidate
By Jack Cashill
September 04, 2008
Having written a book on intellectual fraud, "Hoodwinked," and being something of a literary detective, I had no doubt on reading Barack Obama's 1995 memoir, "Dreams From My Father," that Obama did not really write it.
The style is above his pay grade, way above...
See my post at #33.
It is appropriate that Palin refers to herself as a pitbull--an ugly, snarling, threatening animal. But we all know that the lipstick she talks about isn't on a pitbull. She is lipstick on a pig, the pig being the Republican party in general, John McBush in particular.
We've all heard the joke that Washington is Hollywood for ugly people. I get that. But we need to push back on the cynicism that McSame is pushing, knowing that signing on a sexy grandma will get white men to vote for him because they want to sleep with her. You know it's true!
Let's send out a steady stream of Democratic women on the news show circuit NOW, and capitalize on the fact that they can't send Palin out there because she KNOWS NOTHING. The repuklicans know that the hard questions the press will ask her are going to destroy her, and that's why they have to keep her locked in her dressing room All we will see are the sound bites from the solitary speech she gave that was written for her by a Bush speech writer, and the press will have to play them over and over and over ad nauceum until it gets drilled into the head of the common folk that she really is lipstick on a pig.
Actually, Bob Beckel started the whole “Palin is a pig” meme:
At :31, Beckel says, “I thought she said the difference in her speech, the difference between a socc- or a hockey mom and a Rottweiler was—or maybe it was a pig—was lipstick, right?”
So, according to Bob Beckel, the difference between a hockey mom and a pig is lipstick.
