    The United States Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama is losing ground in the polls as what's now being dubbed 'The Lipstick Affair' continues to cost him the support of women voters who chose Hillary Clinton in the primaries. According to recent polls, Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin is wooing those voters to John McCain's side. The Republicans are hurling accusations of sexism at Barack Obama to undermine him further. The latest is that he compared Sarah Palin to a pig. A week ago Sarah Palin spoke about herself in her address to the Republican Convention: "Do you know the difference...

    ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - A comment by Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama about putting lipstick on a pig has some Republican women in New Mexico glossing their lips and telling him to kiss off. On Wednesday evening they were writing their least-favorite Democrat and puckering up to seal the letters with a kiss. Obama touched off the latest bit of campaign stagecraft with a comment he made Tuesday and which he said was directed at Republican John McCain's economic policies. "You know you can put lipstick on a pig; it's still a pig," the Democrat said. Republicans pounced saying the comment...

    Obama Needs to Get Back to the Teleprompter and the Economy Campaigns are cyclical. They ebb and flow. McCain no doubt will have a bad week characterized by Biden-like gaffes and getting off message. We all remember McCain’s ugly green backdrop behind his acceptance speech, and “my friends” ad nauseam. Still, if some lament the lack of discussion of issues (I do), we nevertheless know if McCain had picked a wonkish “old white” guy like Romney, we still would not be talking about taxes, defense, Iraq and housing; but would be bombarded by the prefab attack ads that would have...
  • Obama: Palin Is Just Another Pretty Face, Not A Pig

    Obama really is pretty clueless. Instead of hinting that Governor Sarah Palin is a pig with lipstick, he goes on Letterman and calls her just another pretty face - insinuating she has no brains, views or political force of her own: Obama: “It does. But keep in mind that, technically, had I meant it that way, she would have been the lipstick, you see?” (audience, Dave laugh) “But now we’re…” Dave: “I don’t know, you’re way ahead of me.” (audience laughs) Obama: “Yeah, the failed policies of John McCain would be the pig.” Obama keeps digging his hole, and laughing...

    Make it a trio of mindreaders at NBC/MSNBC. As noted here, yesterday Howard Fineman and David Shuster went Carnac on us, emphatically declaring that Barack Obama didn't have Sarah Palin in mind with his lipstick line. On this morning's Today, Andrea Mitchell joined her network stablemates [no pun intended!] in delving into Barack's brain and assuring us he meant no harm. ANDREA MITCHELL: Barack Obama has been a punching-bag [aww] for a barrage of criticism from the McCain campaign.

    Free Republic ^ | September 11, 2008 | Vasko Kohlmayer
    The word "lipstick" became a potent political symbol on September 3, 2008, when Sarah Palin metaphorically expressed to the American people the dual nature of her persona: the tough bulldog reformer and the feminine, attractive, grown-up lipstick-wearing executive. When reproaching John McCain's message of change in Virginia on Tuesday, Barrack Obama linked the symbol of the feminine half of the Palin's duality to a pig. Apparently extemporizing while speaking before a crowd of enthusiastic supporters, a tired cliché of disparagement connecting pigs to lipstick somehow presented itself to his mind as he sought to please his audience. The most memorable...

    Obama's comment about a fish wrapped in change is still gonna stink is far more offensive than a Muslim talking about lipstick on a pig. He was talking about Sarah " "Barracuda" as "still gonna stink". Where is the outrage over calling her a stinking fish???

    "You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig," Sen. Barack Obama said Tuesday — thereby spawning one of those vacuous debates that will consume at least two days of air time on cable news talk shows. Thank Sen. John McCain's campaign for holding a press call afterward asking Obama to apologize for comparing running mate Sarah Palin to a pig. And then you get instant mindless controversy. Obama dismissed the gambit as "phony outrage." And: "Nobody actually believes that these folks are offended." No lie. It's why folks call this the silly season. Obama also had...

    (Obama) warned voters they'd be hearing clever words and expressions but were really well-disguised smears.........the Democrat was referring to coded attacks aimed at him - not by him....... He claims his "lipstick on a pig" slur of Gov. Sarah Palin was "an innocent remark." As, presumably, was the remark: "You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called 'change' [and] it's still gonna stink." Democrats pointedly noting John McCain is 72 years old is an eerie coincidence, right? All of which makes Obama's feigned outrage - portraying himself as the victim of a "Swift Boat" attack -...

    Obama's woes have nothing to do with 'lipstick' Howard Fineman on the candidate's pride, strategy and stump speak ANALYSIS By Howard Fineman WASHINGTON - No, Barack Obama was not making fun of Sarah Palin when he talked about some Republican putting “lipstick on a pig.” He was trying to be colloquial, and John McCain’s campaign knew as much – even as it was going theatrically ballistic. That’s not to say that Obama hasn’t made mistakes. In fact, he’s made – and is making – a lot.

    Sarah Palin was back in Alaska Thursday to see her son off to war. A homecoming rally late Wednesday marked the first time the governor had been in the state since Republican presidential hopeful John McCain asked her to be his running mate on August 28. And there was no hiding her joy at being back after the madness of the past two weeks in which the little-known governor and self-proclaimed "hockey mom" was transformed into a political rock star. Palin's laughter filled the cabin as the freshly painted McCain-Palin campaign plane pulled up to an airport hanger in Fairbanks...

    Obama: Illinois State Senate Confrontation, June 2002 On June 11, 2002, as a state senator, Obama and fellow state senator Rickey Hendon nearly threw down on the senate floor. At issue was a bill that would close a child-welfare office in Hendon’s district. Obama voted in favor of the bill—accidentally, he claims—but Hendon was irate. “There’s a rift between the African-Americans on the West Side and South Side here in Chicago,” says David Mendell, Tribune reporter and author of an Obama biography. “They’re competitive, and [Hendon] was saying that Obama voted against his project because he wanted to placate some...

    Let’s start with the obvious and inarguable: Of course Sen. Barack Obama’s comment about “lipstick on a pig” was a reference to Supergirl Sarah Palin. You know it, I know it and the partisan crowd that literally rose to their feet and cheered when they heard it know it. And it’s nothing new. Democrats shot the lipstick line at Gov. Palin on their official Web site last week with a posting entitled “McCain’s Selection of Palin is Lipstick on a Pig” - accompanied by what I’m sure was intended to be a flattering photo of the Alaska outdoorswoman.

    Sept. 9, 2008 | John McCain announced that he was running for president to confront the "transcendent challenge" of the 21st century, "radical Islamic extremism," contrasting it with "stability, tolerance and democracy." But the values of his handpicked running mate, Sarah Palin, more resemble those of Muslim fundamentalists than they do those of the Founding Fathers. On censorship, the teaching of creationism in schools, reproductive rights, attributing government policy to God's will and climate change, Palin agrees with Hamas and Saudi Arabia rather than supporting tolerance and democratic precepts. What is the difference between Palin and a Muslim fundamentalist? Lipstick....

    For the women attending a campaign event in Lancaster County, Pa., Sarah Palin might as well be at the top of the Republican ticket. "I like the way she's going to bring Washington down to earth," said Erin Gilsbach, 30, who drove from Allentown with her sister, husband and two daughters to hear the Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential nominee speak here Tuesday. "Everyone talks about it, but I get the feeling she's going to do it." That's exactly what worries Democrats, who see women in Pennsylvania and other states who might have voted for New York Sen. Hillary...

    More details are out on Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin's scheduled visit to Northern Nevada this weekend. The Alaska Governor will appear Saturday afternoon at an open pavilion in Carson City. Officials say the venue can hold up to 3500 people. A spokesman for the McCain-Palin campaign says Northern Nevada is a "very important region" for the Republican ticket in a state that's targeted by both major parties. There's no word on when John McCain will visit the Silver State again. A spokeswoman for Barack Obama's campaign says the Democratic nominee and his running mate Joe Biden will be...

    ...his economic policy, healthcare policy, tax policy, education policy, foreign policy, and Karl-Marx-style politics, for starters. Other than that, I don't like his evil, baby-killing abortion policy, his anti-family gay rights policy, his anti-freedom gun-grabbing policy, his anti-America global warming and energy policies, or the constitution-hating liberal activist judges he would appoint. And I absolutely abhor his cowardly, cheese-eating surrender monkey policy. In fact, I can't think of a single policy of his that makes sense for America. I don't think there's been an election in my lifetime where the choices haven't been more starkly opposite. McCain-Palin and Obama-Biden are...

    The official website of the Democratic Party has a blog posting entitled, "McCain's Selection of Palin is Lipstick on a Pig," illustrated by an altered photograph of a pig with makeup, designer glasses and pearls. "Palin is a red herring, lipstick on the Republican pig to distract Americans from the real issue that under the leadership of the Republicans the last 8 years, our country is falling apart," writes the blogger, Elizabeth Berry, a self-described 49-year-old "progressive" from Texas. The posting was published 11 days ago, well before Sen. Barack Obama drew sharp criticism yesterday when he jabbed at Palin...
