THE VICE PRESIDENT: As we say in Wyoming -- (laughter) -- you can put all the lipstick you want on a pig, but at the end of the day, it's still a pig. (Applause.)
I'm waiting for this one
You can't make a silk purse out of a sows ear.
Once this is over.....Who will quit first?
why would you talk about pigs wearing lipstick? There is no kernel of truth. Women, and soccer Moms, wear lip stick. Pigs don't. The phrase simply doesn't make sense unless it is directed at a woman (or women). So, now Obama is trying to explain his remarks.
Once this is over, he will resume running against Palin.
