Obama and the Pig with Lipstick

September 9, 2008 · Filed Under Sarah Palin ·  

Barack Obama sure is eloquent, and he proves it as he bumbles through his latest script stating that McCain and Palin won’t change anything in Washington, and he follows up with the ever clever… “You know, you can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig.”

The crowd went wild.

Aside from the fact that both McCain and Palin have a history as reformers, and Obama, well, he doesn’t really have a history, he’s pretty transparent in his allusion.

Just last week, when Governor Palin spoke at the Republican National Convention, she ad libbed, “What’s the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? Lipstick.”

Of course, the Obama campaign was quick to say the reference was just an old saying, according to ABC News.

Stay classy, Barack.

Over at the Atlantic.com, Marc Ambinder tries to provide cover to Obama by proclaiming, “Suddenly, common analogies are sexist?”

No, Marc, they’re not. But the crowd clearly got the reference even if you didn’t. It’s not like this is the first Obama gaffe.

Biden: Election of Palin Would be “backward step for women”

September 9, 2008 · Filed Under Joe Biden ·  

Joe Biden was asked by a local reporter in Milwaukee, WI if he thought that if Governor Palin wins that it would be a step forward for women.

His response…

“Well look, I think the issue is what does Sarah Palin think? What does she believe? I assume she thinks and agrees with the same policies that George Bush and John McCain think, and that’s obviously a backward step for women.”

Is Joe Biden running for Vice President of Bizzaro World, where the code states “Us do opposite of all Earthly things! Us hate beauty! Us love ugliness! Is big crime to make anything perfect on Bizarro World!”

The Truth About Sarah Palin

September 9, 2008 · Filed Under Sarah Palin ·  

The lies about Sarah Palin have been spreading like crazy among scared and confused liberals. Fortunately, Newsweek has researched the smears and posted the truth.

The Newsweek story clears up the following…

  • Palin did not cut funding for special needs education in Alaska by 62 percent. She didn’t cut it at all.
  • She did not demand that books be banned from the Wasilla library.
  • She was never a member of the Alaskan Independence Party.
  • Palin never endorsed or supported Pat Buchanan for president.
  • Palin has not pushed for teaching creationism in Alaska’s schools.

It would be nice if we could stick to the real stories, rather than this sort of character assassination with fabricated scandals.
