Some of us (especially me) owe Hussein an apology for attacking him on his lipstick/pigcomment.
As someone who was slamming Hussein for his use of the ugly potitics of personal destruction, Chicago-style, I have now reconsidered my comments of yesterday--after hearing Husseins indignant explanation this morning.
Husseins use of the gutter politics of personal attacks yesterday can be explained two ways:
(1) The first possibility, and the one that many of us reacted to--was that Hussein was stooping to a new, ugly personal attack, lowering himself to an unimaginably low-level--by comparing Gov. Palin to a pig. Initially, I was sure this was the case.
(2) The second explanation, however, is the one that Hussein used this morning. His comments made it clear that there was no malice intended (other than the normal vicious, personal attacks the democrats have been using on Republicans for years)and it was just 'a coincidence' or 'accident' that the joke could apply to Gov. Palin.
Now, I have heard the lipstick on a pig joke, many times in my life too. Its a very old joke, and I think its even been used by John McCain, Dick Cheney and many others. But the use of that joke was well before Gov. Palin made her comments (made only in the last couple weeks) tying her hockey mom status to lipstick.
Given the incredibly unbelievable public press and relentless comments in the MSM focusing on Gov. Palins lipstick commentsit is inconceivable that her lipstick comment could not have been heard by anyone not living in a phone booth (although I bet even someone in a phone booth has heard it). Her lipstick, 'schtick' (no pun intended), therefore, was known by everyone.
GIVEN THE FACT THAT GOV. PALIN IS NOW SO CLOSELY ASSOCIATED WITH THE TERM LIPSTICKand given her humorous tying of lipstick to hockey moms and pitbullsand her use of it as a visual prop in her political satirethe term lipstick in now inextricably associated with Gov. Palin.
Although Hussein's indignant denial, just DOES NOT PASS THE 'SNIFF TEST'I am willing to defer to him--and accept his explanation this morning.
In his explanation this morning, Hussein asks us to believe that he was not aware of a possible tie between lipstick and Gov. Palin, and asks us to believe that he is--
AND STUPID BEYOND ANYONES WILDEST DREAMS (to borrow a recent phrase of his, if I may) instead.
I am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt, and accept that explanation.
Yeah, just like the wiseass gradeschool kid who considers himself the smartest guy in the room.
No. We do not!
I apologize for the grammatical errors in my last post. I’m just so infuriated by the arrogance of this man.
While I think if you asked Obama a couple of days ago if it was a good strategy to call Palin a pig I am sure he isnt that dumb. That said as soon as the crowd reacted the way they did he should have caught himself and stopped it right there. But not only did he deliver the end like a punch line, he continued to pull out the wrap the old fish comment. On those merits I dont see giving him a pass.
Just watching the morons behind the Messiah start laughing INSTANTLY as he said the ‘lipstick’ comment, just shows that the “Anointed One” knew EXACTLY what he was saying.
Believe me, they weren’t laughing at “Bush’s failed economics” or anything like that . . .
They and the Anointed Messiah Hussein Obama were making fun of an apparently very pleasant and intelligent woman. Ugly feminatzis and politicians who’ve sold their soul to the Devil for unlimited, four-trimester abortions can’t stand her.
May God guide her and keep her safe.
I am surprised that everyone had left off at the lipstick comment and ignored Obomber’s next breath about wrapping OLD fish in newspaper and how it still stinks.
He clearly was being provocative, but his mind-numb robots will argue otherwise.
My daughter found this appropriate movie clip from the 1940 movie “The Ghost Breakers”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SkzV5AIK8iM
0be is just showing that he will not be bringing a “new tone” anywhere and has been already coopted by the old Chicago Politics of stasis.
Like one man commented on OpiniPundit (your link), they did in George Allen for 1 word “macaca” when he was running. Obama’s body language says he knew what he was doing as he played to his supporters.
I'd like to read them. Got links? :)
There’s a screen capture of a Dem party web page floating around here dated Aug 30th that says you can put lipstick on a pig but it’s still a pig and it is specifically referring to Palin so the idea is out there in Dem circles. Sorry I don’t remember which post it was on but someone will be able to link it here I’m sure.
Followed with the wrap a fish and it still stinks comment obama made there was no mistake about what he meant.
obama thinks he is smarter then everyone in the room and he’s laughing his butt off at getting back at Gov Palin for her community organizer remark.
Now we know that where Gov Palin hit him with community organizer remark hurt him the most. And he came back low and dirty. So now we know who he is and how he fights.
Thank you. Apparently, many posted without reading the whole article....oh well. (s)
