“You can put lipstick on a pig,” he said as the crowd cheered. “It’s still a pig.”
“You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called change. It’s still gonna stink.”
“We’ve had enough of the same old thing.”
Let’s go to the videotape:
HOW MUCH IS KARL ROVE PAYING THIS MAN?
AJ Strata says the election’s over:
Palin is not a victim of O-Bomba – that’s impossible since she just won the class and respect award for being higher than the gutter. People who think this was more of an attack against Palin than an implosion of Obama and the left missed the point entirely. Obama just proved he is not ready for prime time. Palin wins the ‘experience’ test hands down because Obama disqualified himself. He tried to cheat and break the rules (of common decency). That is why this is over.
No, it’s not over. We have 2 more months to go in a campaign that’s been going for two years. BTW, Strata’s commenter points out the meaning
And even the “fish” comment is an insulting name for women among gay men. I live near San Francisco so I get more exposure to the gay lexicon than maybe other people do. BOTH comments were aimed at Palin, in my opinion. He basically called her a pig who is foul between the legs. That is nasty.
It’s time to stop whining about it though.
Glenn‘s reader suggests the McCain response:
If I were in the McCain camp, I’d use this thing to get even further inside Barry’s head:
“We’re pleasantly surprised by Senator Obama’s newfound sense of humor, and look forward to watching it develop over the coming weeks and months.”
McCain was brillliant in selecting Palin: he’s got Obama running against the VP nominee, instead of running against him. And now Obama’s sounding … desperate.
But as I said yesterday, this is only the beginning, folks. There’s going to be much more to come: Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy night!
