STERLING, Virginia (CNN) Firing up supporters at a womens rally with Joe Biden in Virginia Friday, Sen. Barbara Mikulski told the crowd, Democratic women, we wear lipstick too! referring to Sarah Palins now-famous joke that the difference between a pitbull and a hockey mom is lipstick.
You and I know that we women in America are mad as hell and we dont want to take it anymore, the spirited Maryland senator said. Im here today to say to you, weve got to get ready here, ok? Women, square your shoulders. Women, Democratic women, we wear lipstick too!
We dont need another George Bush in earrings being the No. 2 spot, Mikulski added.
Taking the stage, Biden thanked Mikulski, saying They asked me could I handle Sarah Palin? I said, 'try debating Barbara Mikulski!'
The Delaware senator focused his remarks on women's issues, saying that demographic is the most affected in an economic downturn.
We're going to change that because here's the deal, we've got to restore both the protections and the dignity, said Biden, Because when the economy goes south, it's women who go, whether they're making minimum wage or working for a major corporation.

Barbara would like you to know, that it's now fashionable to wear lipstick to your next "Bra-Burning" protest...
Oh, dear, honey. Don’t wear lipstick, it doesn’t help you.
But only when in drag.
I am so ashamed of my state.
Lipstick on a pig.
Get a paper bag to go with that lipstick Barbara.AWB
I can’t help this...but THAT THERE is a pig in lipstick....
Yes, “democratic women wear lip stick” too, but they all look like men.
Don't forget children, too! Women and children hit hardest!
If they don't abort them...
She needs alot more than lipstick. Bless her heart.
Yeah, and they look like this:
(With a few notable exceptions -- Kirsten Powers, Valerie Plame, etc.)
Lipstick doesn’t help, maybe a mask or a veil?
That woman should not do anything to call attention to her appearance in any way.
In the great lipstick kerfluffel, we’ve had pitbulls and pigs. I’ll leave it to you to decide which party is which
It’s strange ... a stout, older lady can look pretty and sweet (with lipstick or not), if she’s a good person inside. A person who’s mean inside is going to look ugly, no matter what her facial features or grooming are like.
