Lipstick on a pig

Republicans are running an ad which professes outrage at Barack Obama's comment about “…lipstick on a pig…”. The Republican campaign ad refers to “sexism in American life,” and accuses the junior senator from Illinois of “smearing” Mrs Palin, governor of Alaska.

Curious that when Republican candidate, John McCain, used similar words when he referred to the Hilary Clinton health care plan, Republicans did not have the same sense of outrage and none of them complained that McCain was smearing Clinton. Funny old world that.

Here is the old McCain clip, it's pretty rich:

Phonies are as phonies do, and John is nothing if not a phony, and a pathetic old one at that. The only thing he has going for him is a war record from over 35 years ago, most of which was spent in captivity. That's more than a generation ago, folks. Ross Perot—a two-time candidate for President of the United States—saw right through this man. Here's a quote from Newsweek:

Perot doesn't remember it that way. "After he came home, he walked with a limp, she [Carol McCain] walked with a limp. So he threw her over for a poster girl with big money from Arizona [Cindy McCain, his current wife] and the rest is history."

Perot's real problem with McCain is that he believes the senator hushed up evidence that live POWs were left behind in Vietnam and even transferred to the Soviet Union for human experimentation, a charge Perot says he heard from a senior Vietnamese official in the 1980s. "There's evidence, evidence, evidence," Perot claims. "McCain was adamant about shutting down anything to do with recovering POWs."

John McCain is a pathetic old phony who had to go and find a pretty young woman, i.e., Sarah Palin, to dress up and salvage his failing campaign. This is the second time McCain has turned to a pretty young woman to save his career for him.
