Wising Up To Bam's Greasy Lip-Schtick
nypost.com ^ | September 11, 2008 | Michelle Malkin

SOME above-the-fray pundits in Washington and Manhattan are anxious about the McCain camp's swift, sharp efforts to capitalize on Barack Obama's lipstick bungle.

The worrywarts argue that it's "whiny" to point out the left's double standard on sexism and that Gov. Sarah Palin shouldn't be cast as a victim.

Nonsense. Team McCain is finally listening to the GOP base and giving Obama a dose of his own medicine.

Women are now waving their lipstick in solidarity with Sarah at massive rallies on the campaign trail - not in victimhood, but in defiance.

They're refusing to give Obama the benefit of the doubt or the drool-drenched deference he receives from the Obama promoters at Us Weekly, Rolling Stone, MTV and "The Oprah Winfrey Show." Internet entrepreneurs are already selling lipstick-imprinted buttons and T-shirts.

There it is. Women are taking the offensive. I don’t know if there’s any way to stop this if I even wanted to.

Rats can wave around pigs they want, and then it could become the new democrat symbol. Waving pigs could be dangerous.

[later in article]

At a packed McCain-Palin event in Lancaster County, Pa., one woman held a placard reading: “Guns, God and Lipstick.” Erin Gilsbach of Allentown, Pa., told McClatchy newspapers: “I like the way [Palin’s] going to bring Washington down to earth.”

Go out and buy the cheapest lipstick you can find and mail them to Obama. Maybe he has a real pig he can use them on. You can take that anyway you want.

I wish they’d come down to Tennessee, I’d wave my lipstick at them!

I think it’s a great symbol. Of course it will be mocked by John Stewart and the lefty media, but the message is clear.

Anyone who watched that clip, and the pauses Obama made, and the reaction of the crowd knows good and darn well what he meant. He can deny it to Letterman all he wants, but all that does is make him a liar.

Obama has called Governor Palin a Pig with Lipstick on and a Smelly Fish. Today he basically stomped on flowers honoring the victims of 9/11.

What other "issues" do Americans need to see through this looser?

Obama "threw" his flower at the 9/11 WTC Memorial

I saw that. Obama tossed his flower on the pile, McCain, just after him, carefully placed his flower among the others.

Obama just didn’t have a serious demeanor.
