    :

    UPDATE: McCain spokesman Brian Rogers responds: “Barack Obama can’t campaign with schoolyard insults and then try to claim outrage at the tone of the campaign. His talk of new politics is as empty as his campaign trail promises, and his record of bucking his party and reaching across the aisle simply doesn’t exist.”

    I like that answer!

    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.

    You can tell by the audience's explosive reaction that they get the reference. Obama did mean it. He did this kind of crap to Hillary all the time, but no one called him on it because the DNC wanted him to win. But, with Palin, the GOP is not taking this crap and Barry will not have it so easy.

    Every African American poster on DU would get it and the place would EXPLODE! (Younger white folks would just go, "What?")

    Obama is not ready for prime time plus he is dumb as a rock. When you make a mistake, it is best to admit it and apoligize. Many politicians have a hard time doing that. If he would have told Gov. Palin that he was sorry about the remark and offered an apology, this issue would go away. Now, it going to fester for a longer period of time. Plus, it would show that he is a real man by admitting his mistake. He is a fool.

    Honestly who could predict people would get hysterical over a silly comment? Its the same ol story of this election...

    The left wing candidates were cowardly hiding behind race/sex anytime the tone escalated.

    Now, instead of being better people above the fray, Palin/McCain followed the left wing into the gutter, and now hide and cower behind their cover of sexism. Way to go guys! Can't say as I'm surprised.

    LOL! Stinky Fish!
    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)

    "
    You can put lipstick on a pig," Obama declared. "It's still a pig."

    No mention of Palin. But the audience roared and jumped to its feet.

    Obama paused to take in the applause and then moved on to another (also overused) metaphor.

    "You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called change," he began. "It's still gonna stink after eight years."
    Obama was the idiot that waded into this one.

    I think that - right or wrong - this is another thing that can be used to show how NObama is not what he claims. He's claimed more than once that he would not engage in the politics of personal destruction and yet time and again - he has show that he's more than willing to get dirty with the best of them.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
