#1 Sarah has a copyright on the word "Lipstick?"09-10-2008, 10:44 AM
So Obama called her a pig? Is this really an issue folks?At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)

Suddenly, McCain/Obama battle over lipstick -- Porky's or Palin's
Oh, boy! Or girl! For a presidential race where three of the four major candidates are of the male persuasion, they're spending an awful lot of time talking about lipstick.
Another measure perhaps of how the addition of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to the political mix in the Republican's No. 2 spot has shaken things up on both sides in just 12 days.
New polls out Monday revealed a 20-point swing in support of white women away from the Barack Obama-Joe Biden Democratic ticket over toward the John McCain-Palin package, attributed largely to the blast of fresh air and down-to-earthness brought by the surprise presence of the 44-year-old reform governor and mother of five.
Today, Obama walked into some Republican machine-gun fire when he appeared to echo Palin's lipstick line from her widely viewed and quoted convention speech last week
I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad

I think it is.
Obama either is too stupid to be President if he didn't realize how this would be perceived or he is too vicious. Look at him put his hand to his head before he said it - he is deciding if he wants to go there, and he does.
The audience knows exactly what he meant.
And no comparison to the McCain/Hillary story. He was talking about her program.
Look at the Hillary forum - they are LIVID.

Obama just doesn't connect with regular people. He sent in Biden to STL yesterday to talk to a bunch of union guys and blue collar folks at Mehlville High School (said so on the front page of our liberal rag, the STL Post-Dispatch). It was during the day, so I suspect a large majority of the audience was comprised of high school kids at a mandatory assembly.

That smarmy bas**rd. He's sounding all "country" and saying "they seize on an innocent remark".
How can anyone be stupid enough to fall for his BS.

Obama is on the air now (fox news) at a campaign appearance. He's making fun of the lipstick on a pig comment. He thinks it's funny and is sort of smirky about it. Now he's trying to say that it's hurting the country. He's saying it's a serious time, trying to cover up his remark. I've noticed he didn't say it wasn't directed at Palin.
Funny, he doesn't have that phony Southern accent today.
