Obama: Lipstick on a Pig (Did he just call Sarah Palin a pig and a stinky fish?)
Politico ^ | Tuesday, September 9, 2008 | Ben Smith

Posted on 09/09/2008 3:36:33 PM PDT by kristinn

Amie Parnes reports from Lebanon, VA:

Obama poked fun of McCain and Palin's new "change" mantra.

"You can put lipstick on a pig," he said as the crowd cheered. "It's still a pig."

"You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called change. It's still gonna stink."

"We've had enough of the same old thing."

The crowd apparently took the "lipstick" line as a reference to Palin, who described the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull in a single word: "lipstick."

Get in the Mud with Obama-Biden 2008

What lipstick? Are these pigs crossdressers?

Make sure this stays in the front page of all news reports. Let’s see how women react to this. To women, these are sexist terms, the latter almost as offensive as the “N” word is to African Americans (my wife’s jaw is still on the floor after reading this.)

I guess this is the ‘change’ Obama has promised.

I’m sure his muslim brethren will love the pig quote.

And the anniversary of Sept. 11 is two days away.

HIT HOME FREEPERS! Stop taking their (MSM, BAMBI & etc.) abuse. Mom needs her back covered.

Even Kerry didn’t melt down this badly. He just got drunk and went on a midnight rant right after the GOP convention.

At this rate of descent, it’s coming close to being too late to pull that parachute.

I simply can not leave my house, walk my dog or do anything that takes more than an hour without Obama giving me a huge gift, Biden is now chipping in as well. The All-Tone Deaf Dream Team, these guys.

I am afraid to be away from a computer, I haven’t laughed this hard in a long time. THIS is the MESSIAH? He’s turning into my freaking Messiah? He just can’t stop, he is campaigning like he is running for President of DU right now.

This is shaping up to be my favorite election ever. Landslide guarantee again, I’m not worried about karma, or bad luck. There is no way these 2 can smarten up in less than 2 months, them and their handlers are out to lunch.

The reference was particularly unkind if Palin was the reference.

Implying a woman is a “stinky fish” has connotations which are grossly impolite.

The McCain/Palin response must be related to muslims and their fear of pigs.

Does anyone know if the Demagogues (legally) CAN change candidates now? I know we joke about them “pulling a Toricelli” with either Obama or Biden, but what are the legal aspects of that once a candidate has been nominated by the convention? Can the party really substitute a different candidate without calling another convention?

Keep it up, Barry. You’ll deliver 42 states to McCain/Palin at this rate.

Wow the Politics of Division from the agent of Change... Come on Obama you know that Sarah Palin is the Change that we have all been waiting for.... Just embrace the Change...

Correction

He is a (puppet) of Chicago gutter politics. He isn’t all that smart off the prompter. Add another percentage point to MAC / Palin.

EVERYONE,
Make sure you get this out to your local papers and everyone you know. Revelations like this do no good sitting here. Check your local paper’s website to see if they have forums, send letters to the editor, spread it around.
(example, my local paper has a forum-
http://discussions.news-journal.com/list.php?1,phorum_session_v5=075d37a23947f25398c7c9d32b5029c5
)

Is this the kind of change Obama is going to bring?

I agree...he is rattled - but he’s been rattled before in this campaign. Particularly during the height of the Rev. Wright stuff in the primaries against Hillary.

He managed to “wright” the ship. These guys are better than the bozos running the Kerry debacle in ‘04.

I think though - for the first time in this campaign - the election is not Obama’s to lose. He has to play offense - which is risky - especially with a loose cannon like Biden.

You can see a change in his rhetoric since the new polls (which don’t mean anything according to them) came out.

I think that this fellow Schmidt will have a few moves up his sleeve - should be interesting to see.

Obama and Biden can play when they have a lead - let’s see what they do now that they are behind...I bet they screw up.

Dunno for sure, but I think the candidate would have to be willing, comatose, or dead.

Is Beckel gay too? You’d never guess.

????

I'm not sure what you are tryin to imply.

I was referring to Becktel's use of lipstick and pig during a discussion of VP nominee Sarah Palin. He was the 2nd commentator who used those terms on FoxNews yesterday morning.

This will not only offend women. It cuts much deeper than that.

The smelly fish term is a direct comment about a womans vagina. That is what it is. I am sure they will try to spin that to hell and back. But that is what it is.
