McCain camp: Obama's 'lipstick' remark disgraceful - Yahoo! News

What's the difference between the presidential campaign before and after the national political conventions? Lipstick. The colorful cosmetic has become a political buzzword, thanks to Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin's joke in her acceptance speech that lipstick is the only thing that separates a hockey mom like her from a pit bull.

Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama told an audience Tuesday that GOP presidential nominee John McCain says he'll change Washington, but he's just like President Bush.

"You can put lipstick on a pig," he said to an outbreak of laughter, shouts and raucous applause from his audience, clearly drawing a connection to Palin's joke even if it's not what Obama meant. "It's still a pig. You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called change. It's still going to stink after eight years."

McCain's campaign called the comments "offensive and disgraceful" and said Obama owes Palin an apology. Obama's campaign said he wasn't referring to Palin and said the GOP camp was engaging in a "pathetic attempt to play the gender card." Obama's camp also noted that McCain once used the same phrase to describe Hillary Rodham Clinton's health care plan.

"Why is Chelsey Clinton so ugly? Because Janet Reno's her father."

--John McCain

It's frickin' awesome that Republicans are feminists now! They've even tried to ape the humorless hypersensitivity of which they accuse the women's movement. Liberalism, as Mitt Romney might say, is disgusting; but sometimes Republicans have to do it, too. For the good fo the country.

"'tis frickin' awesome that Republicans are feminists!"

I strongly disagree that the lipstick pitbullshit/pigbullshit RNC ad/controversy has anything to do with feminism. In another thred I comment on the E.Q. manipulation and forward "masking" that morphs "hockey" in the direction of "honkey".

This is about race, all about race, Untermenschen, Ungeziefer, in Rwanda, "cock-a-roaches" ( the deepest racial divide in the world runs down the middle of Africa, Hutus are closely akin to African-Americans, Tutsis, or Watusis, are more akin to Swedes, Irish, Egyptians, Asians, American Indians, even Aussie Abos, than to their Hutu brethren (from West Africa), according to scientific anthropology, and genetics too, I believe)).

This is a sub-sub-sub-lemon-al sour grapes of race-hatred re-re-mark aimed at the bitter ones, McVeighs who hold it all in, until Nixon comes along to get kicked around, or Palin, Pale one that she is (even though she looks half-Indian (or Hun, or Mongol-Russo?) like her Hubby, to my eyes).

Capricious, yet (like Ulysses)crafty Mick Cain is trying to get some One's goat. Whilst his border collies go around back and round up the sheep. Just 'til the election.

And get this: a member of the "truth squad" is no other than the porcine Jane Swift, one of Massachusetts' least popular governors EVER.

From Wikipedia:

[i]Swift was extremely unpopular with voters in the state (at one point having the dubious honor of a single-digit approval rating). This unpopularity was due in part to a perceived lack of effectiveness and in part to apparent abuses of her gubernatorial privileges, including: her use of a Massachusetts State Police helicopter to commute cross-state, from Boston to her home in North Adams; and, the use of State House aides to babysit her children.[/i]

Can we see a tv add with Hillary and Chelsey.

They quote McCain

They say how hurtful his comments have been, then they turn to the camera and say how hateful he has been to women and now he is accusing Obama of sexism when Obama was calling him out on his lies about creating change by keeping policy the same.

And now there is more evidence that Sarah Palin is a no-boundaries kind of crazy:

This hysteria is so embarrassing. We are the most infantile idiots on the planet.

No, no, no (I wag my finger).

We will soon find out that the most infantile idiots on the planet are alive and well, and living in the tribal areas of "Pock-i-stawn" (which is not the way they pronounce it by the way, for the record).

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that these ridiculous attempts at news will end when the candidates debate.

The only possible way I can see McCain coming out looking good during the debates is if he employs the "I said it first" strategy. This will be where McCain gets asked a question and then answers it as if he were Obama.

Sort of like his convention speech where he rambled on about how he is like Bush and then said "I'm for change".

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that these ridiculous attempts at news will end when the candidates debate.

I wouldn't count on it. The Republicans have little to run on, so their only chance is to run a campaign of distraction and destruction.

It worked in 1988, and it worked in 2004. If we don't GOTV, it may work again.

God, Republicans are stupid. Obviously, Palin is the lipstick, and McCain is the pig!

Is it possible that the level of REpublican cynicism and contempt for the intelligence of the American people is going UP after Bush? I thought it would abate, some, a little. McCain is a lying sack of shit.

God damn them all, in the non-religious sense.

Don't fail to recognize that we are dealing with a cornered animal. This is when they fight hardest and dirtiest - but it is also the moment of greatest opportunity.

Mothers, please don't let your children grow up to be press release spewing campaign contacts. People like Begala do the same thing as the Republicans. Everyday they sift through the stump speech tapes, trying to pick the handful of scat they think will stick to the wall. Manufactured outrage, willful misrepresentation, outright baloney. The sad thing is that the best people for these jobs are those for whom thinking this way becomes natural.

"the best people for these jobs are those for whom thinking this way becomes natural."

Reagan was the kind of guy, a nice guy, to show his face on screen, but...I don't disagree that people for whom thinking this way [i]s natural do often work in this kind of job. But I disagree that they are the best. To the contrary, pcychopaths, specifically, pcychopaths who have become highly trained in pcychology, do not think even remotely in the same way as their victims, even mass cultural victims. It's more like huntin', fishin', snarin' in traps. Only rid the riddle me this,

Who hunts the hunters?
