"You know, you can put lipstick on a pig," Obama said, "but it's still a pig."
The crowd rose and applauded, some of them no doubt thinking he may have been alluding to Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's ad lib during her vice presidential nomination acceptance speech last week, "What's the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? Lipstick."
lipstick on a pig.
Barack Obama's key paraphrase: "We're going to have a campaign free of the usual manipulations and distortions, we're going to run a campaign we can be proud of."
How low do you have to stoop, to call Sarah Palin a pig. At the Republican National convention Palin called herself a pit bull with lipstick. Now Obama is calling her a pig with lipstick and said even though that pig has lipstick on, it's still a pig.
UPDATE: Obama senior adviser Robert Gibbs insists the senator was not referring to Palin. "That's an old expression," Gibbs says. NO! The old saying goes something like this, "That you can take a pig out of the pig pen. clean her up, but she is still a pig." When Barack Obama put the added lipstick on the pig, he was referring to Sarah Palin.
"What's the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? Lipstick." Looks like Obama was not only calling Sarah Palin a pig but he was calling all of the hockey moms in this great country pigs.
Virginia Senator George Allen introduced us to "Macaca". Most of the American public didn't even know what this word meant, until the news media took it and ran with it. Even though he apologized, the news media ran it into the dirt. Because Allen called someone a name, he lost the election.
What do you think the news media is going to do with this? I can tell you, nothing. You see the news media is in bed with Barack Obama. They will protect Obama so he will not lose this election.
This is what Democrats believe about pigs.
“You can put wings on a pig, but you don't make it an eagle.”

Maybe Barack Obama is right. Sarah Palin stands for pride, integrity and guts.
