Obama: This Week's Alpha Jackass Award

PatriotPost.US, 08-37 At a campaign rally this week, Barack Obama took a shot at Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, saying, “You can put, uh, lipstick on a pig. It’s still a pig.” Palin, memorably, had said in her GOP convention speech, “You know, they say the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? Lipstick.” Obama’s comment—a worn-out political line if ever there was one—was clearly a rebuttal. And he wasn’t finished, attacking McCain, again in his usual eloquent manner, “You know, you can, uh, you know, you can, uh, you—you—you can wrap an old fish in a—in a piece of paper and call it change, it’s still gonna stink.” Is this guy ready for Comedy Central or what? The next step was for the Obama camp to decry the “phony outrage” from Republicans. The funny thing is, the “outrage” 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 opponent’s running mate. We suppose that happens when one’s poll numbers are tanking.
