    More on pigs and fish

    Ok, by now, you've all probably seen the internet ad, "Lipstick" that the McCain/Palin campaign put out in response to Barack 0's Pigs/Lipstick comments on Tuesday.

    The media are abuzz over whether Barack intended this as a slam on Palin, and Barack was even crying "Enough" over the uproar. When I first heard this, I thought it wasn't intended as a poke at Palin, and, I don't think he thought it would be perceived that way. However, there were two comparisons made, and only the Pig/Lipstick one is getting the outrage, but the second one was,

    "You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called change. It's still gonna stink."

    These were prepared remarks, Obama didn't just pick these idioms out of thin air (he's not really capable of that in a speech).

    He meant the lipstick pig remark to apply to Palin, and he meant the "old fish" remark to apply to John McCain.

    So, Obamaniacs, let's be honest here with each other, 0bama has decided to get nasty, by taking gratuitous swipes at the female VP candidate and the Presidential candidate by calling him an "old" guy.

    This 0bama is really all about the politics of change, isn't he?

    Actually, I hadn't seen that ad yet, thanks for sharing it. That's a good one.

    Regardless of his intent with the remark, Obama has been a politician long enough to realize the potential for trouble in using it so soon after Palin's "hockey mom vs. pit bull" comment. His use of the lipstick comment only tells the world of his arrogance.
