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."

this guy is self destructing. They are like German Soldiers caught in a Russian winter. They are falling apart really fast and there is nobody in charge.

Apparently the crowd thought that’s exactly what he implied.

I'm getting a whiff of desperation.

Attacks like this will only turn off normal Americans. Only the crazed libs will cheer.

Fear and desperation are never pretty. The new “history” books with Obama’s picture on the cover must have already been printed.

That is just name calling and is the lowest level of politics and voters will reject it. Die hard liberal hacks will love it but average Joe and Jane will hate it.

I hope there is video of this and the gop places it in an ad. The female vote was starting to move towards McCain. This should help give him a majority.

Indeed. Joe Biden is certainly the paragon of change.

Who is Obama running against? McCain or Palin?

He is making fatal errors.

He is a student of Chicago gutter politics. But he does not realize that this garbage will not work out here in the towns between Columbus, Pittsburgh and Charleston. People are going to be sick.

It is habitual among a certain class of homosexuals to refer to women as "fish", or to make references to "stink".

Where's that fella' from the back of the limousine when you need him, ol' Sinclair ~ something like that!

Oh dear, he did not say that. How utterly childish!

Palin hit him with legitimate barbs and the best he has is to call names!

Oh wait...that is a liberal trait and tactic when they are losing the debate.

Associating people with swine is a muslim thing. Freudian slip there on Obama's part if you ask me.

I’m sure this will go over well with most women.

No, it's a double hit on Palin ~ "fish", and "lipstick" ~ both the kind of references male homosexuals make about women, and about what are known as "lipstick lesbians".

Obama is really shaken up to have let down his guard this far.
