Was Barack Obama referring to Gov. Palin when he made the comment about “putting lipstick on a pig”? Maybe. Maybe not. After all, he did use the same comment when referring to Hillary Clinton during the primary.

I watched that speech over and over again and couldn’t imagine why in the good Lord’s name he would have chosen those words, given Gov. Palin’s acceptance speech and her reference to a pit bull. No, I couldn’t imagine why he would have chosen to use those exact words. I was at first outraged then perplexed. I thought there was no way he meant to compare Sarah Palin to a pig. But then I watched the low brow Neanderthals sitting in his audience, laughing uproariously at a joke that really isn’t that funny anyway and chanting “No More Pit-Bull”. They clearly thought he was referring to Gov. Palin and were very happy that he did it.

He has used that phrase twice during his campaign. Both times it was in reference to women and their policies. Why not say “you can’t polish a turd”? That would have been a funnier statement. Why not say “you can put a suit on an elephant, but it’s still an elephant.” Bottom line is that his poor choice of words can very easily be attributed to his poor character and judgment. It was huge mistake and miscalculation on his part.

His pattern of making these “innocent” remarks is possibly born from an unconscious disrespect for women, or maybe he is just so frazzled and confused that he is becoming unraveled because he can’t figure out why he is not carrying this election away so he lashes out with bone-headed remarks like this. Whatever the reason, it is very evident that he would have a place in his administration for women — Housekeeping, the kitchen and wait staff.

What Gov. Palin should do at her next speech is come out, wipe her lipstick off and say “there, now I’m just a pit-bull”.

    I guess that Mr. McCain is also a chauvinist then.

    It’s a very common expression, people use it all the time, and some people have a thick enough skin not to get their shorts in a bunch over every tiny thing that people say.

    Senator McCain never used that phrase immediately after the “lipstick” became associated with another candidate.

    Yes. It is a commonly used phrase. But given the circumstances and the fact that the Obama Zombies thought he was actually referring to Gov. Palin, it was not an intelligent thing to say. So take your pick. He is a chauvinist pig or he is just that dumb.

    And for the record, yes I do think people should develop thicker skin. The only problem is that only conservatives and Republicans are expected to have the thicker skin. Liberals and democrats get to cry about everything that offends them and then we put whatever offends democrats on the list of politically incorrect terms.

    I think Barack knew what he was saying, but as the words came out of his mouth, he wished they hadn’t. It was probably something the campaign had joked about behind closed doors and it was never meant to be said in public. Why else would he follow the pig statement with some crazy comment about dead fish? I’ve never heard that expression. He was scrambling to draw a different analogy, but it was to late.

    For the last two weeks, its the democrats who have be acting like pigs. Palin Inspired Goofballs. P.I.G.

    The lipstick analogy has nothing to do with her genre. It is an expression about someone trying to pull one up over our eyes, just like Santorum keeps telling us that WMD’s were found in Iraq.
    Palin is for earmarks before she was against them. That’s putting lipstick to a pig. It is still a pig.
    Just becuase someone’s says they are coservative,It doesn’t make them conservative.

    The timing of the remark is what should be considered here. And the ONLY candidate trying to pull anything over anyone’s eyes is Obama. His phony speeches, phony programs that even he knows can’t work and his own BILLIONS of dollars in earmarks.

    Talk about trying to “pull one up over our eyes”…

    At last night’s debate I was waiting for someone to describe the 700 billion dollar bailout as “Putting Lipstick on a Pig”. I’m glad McCain seemed to be the only one at the White House Thursday who was willing to ask the hard questions and not rubberstamp this bogus bailout. Let’s just hope the MSM doesn’t distort this to look like McCain is ruining bailout talks.

    P.S. Has the Hawk retired? There hasn’t been a new post in over 2 weeks.
