PatriotPost.US, 08-37 At a campaign rally this week, Barack Obama took a shot at Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, saying, â€œYou can put, uh, lipstick on a pig. Itâ€™s still a pig.â€ Palin, memorably, had said in her GOP convention speech, â€œYou know, they say the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? Lipstick.â€ Obamaâ€™s commentâ€”a worn-out political line if ever there was oneâ€”was clearly a rebuttal. And he wasnâ€™t finished, attacking McCain, again in his usual eloquent manner, â€œYou know, you can, uh, you know, you can, uh, youâ€”youâ€”you can wrap an old fish in aâ€”in a piece of paper and call it change, itâ€™s still gonna stink.â€ Is this guy ready for Comedy Central or what? The next step was for the Obama camp to decry the â€œphony outrageâ€ from Republicans. The funny thing is, the â€œoutrageâ€ appears to be mostly in his imagination. Few on the Right were actually outraged, but rather amused to see the Democrat nominee stick his foot in his mouth while being reduced to attacking his opponentâ€™s running mate. We suppose that happens when oneâ€™s poll numbers are tanking.
