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:
Carnahan: 'Theres no way you can dress up that record even with a lot of lipstick'Hat tip to patrioticlady at the Hillary Clinton PUMA forums.

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?
