Pork Is Once Again Sarah Palin’s Best Friend

Oy.  Apparently because Sarah Palin famously referred to herself as pit bull with lipstick, Obama must have been referring to her when he said this:

Let’s just list this for a second. John McCain says he’s about change, too. Except — and so I guess his whole angle is, “Watch out, George Bush, except for economic policy, health-care policy, tax policy, education policy, foreign policy, and Karl Rove-style politics. We’re really gonna shake things up in Washington.” That’s not change. That’s just calling some — the same thing, something different. But you know, you can — you know, you can put lipstick on a pig; it’s still a pig.

Nope, sorry, not seeing it.  But the McCain campaign and its surrogates are going nuts over Obama’s horrible terrible misogynistic sexism.

And I find myself wondering, was the pit bull with lipstick quote planted in Palin’s speech for exactly this reason – in the hopes that Obama would use the lipstick-on-a-pig expression (an expression that McCain’s candidacy fairly begs for) in some context, any context, so that these proud defenders of feminism could then clutch their fake pearls in fake outrage?

Because let’s face it, John McCain’s Sensitive Feminist credentials are thinner than Sarah Palin’s resume.

Another Day, Another Palin Scandal

As best I can tell, her defense appears to be, “I’m less corrupt than Frank Murkowski!”

Nice vetting, Mr. McCain!
