why would you talk about pigs wearing lipstick
It's an old saying...
Even if Obama was innocent in saying that (which is very hard for me to believe) isn't it kind of dumb for him and his entire campaign to NOT know what kind of reaction that line would produce?
Not the sharpest tool in the shed, is he?
it's and old saying that
some don't know what it means...or they just won't admit what it means, twist and shout.
another entry in my journal.
I guess he's no sharper than his opponent
Being that John McCain used the exact same phrase at least twice in reference to Hillary Clinton's campaign proposals.
YouTube Video of McCain saying it
I just compare reletive class ranks as a guide.
It's a good start, anyway.
I'm sure there's a point there waiting to emerge.
You wouldn't want to compare the #10 ranking of two people if one was graduated from a university with a class of 6000 and the other was in a class of 40.
Well, I wouldn't want to do that anyway.
Ahhhhhhhhhh! Your comment has something to do
with a comparison between being a Mayor and being a community organizer?
I don't know what that has to do with pigs and lipstick, but I guess we could speculate about how many people were organized by Mr. Obama. Did anyone document that? I guess that's what Palin meant about a Mayor actually having some responsibility.
Umm...No. What post are you replying to?
I think his point has something to do with where each of the candidates placed in their classes at university. Not a very reliable indicator of anything, actually.
My premise is that if you say and do stupid things, you might be stupid. Or at least you might not be as smart about some things as you ought to be.
Barack sure seems to be saying and doing some stupid things lately. This was one of them.
Earth calling space.
McCain may have used it referring to Hillary. That is my exact point. Obama was referring to Palin or to women. Trying to say that he wasn't doing so is a lie.
Earth calling Planet KP
Obama was referring to the new McCain campaign theme that he and Palin are instruments of change. And McCain wasn't referring to Hillary directly; he was referring to her health care plan.
Suuuuuure he was!
That's why he's so busy explaining himself today.
He's so busy explaining himself today...
....because the hypocrites on the McCain team are trying very hard to create an issue out of something their own candidate has also said. Not responding to crap like this is what did in the Kerry campaign; hopefully Obama's strong and quick response to this is evidence that he's determined not to repeat that mistake.
Sorry, the media ran with it. Don't blame Mccain, the ONE got caught out.
Watch that video of the incident. Obama could hardly wait to let taht one out.,. NA dthe audience reacted exactly as he wanted. It was pretty obvious what he was doing. His campaign is one cheap shot after another.
But go ahead, blame someone else.
I would have thought more plagiarism from the Obama campaign would draw SOME comment/defense/shame/whatever??
He's out of range, Josh. Too bad, really.
At least he's not alone
Ed seems to be living in the same alternate reality, so at least they have each other.
Yeah, that made sense....
as stupid observations go, it was very good.,
Gold stars for both of you.
And did that cause any outrage?
No. Maybe because he used it correctly, instead of as a cheap shot? It's one of Bill Clinton's favorite sayings too.
But leaving that aside, in view of Palin's lipstick jokle getting wide exposure, it was probably not the smartest thing in the world to make a comment using the word "lipstick" in such a manner. It practically begs to be taken for a smear, even if that isn't what it was.
Dumb dumb dumb.
But hey, keep it up.
One man's "correctly" is another man's "cheap shot," Ed
True! You got one right!
McCain used it correctly,
and Obama used it as a cheap shot.
It's all in the context.
You get a gold star!@
What I notice...
What I notice is that sometimes the use of a common word or phrase is decried as having "special meaning" to black people and is accused of being an attack on Obama because of his race.
Now, we have a word that has "special meaning" when used towards women but we are not to notice it if Obama used it towards Palin. Unfortunately for Obama, many people noticed.
You didn't get it.
The comment was specifically directed at a woman. McCain using the remark with respect to Hillary does not change that. Obama was applying it to Palin.
So you are in effect admitting it is a cheap shot?
Bill Clinton used it too you know.
