Palin and Pit Bulls and Putzes and Pigs

Caution - Smarm Ahead...

LA Times Entertainment Writer Elizabeth Snead lays it out beautifully on the latest Sarah "I'm Such a Victim" Palin drama unfolding over a recent remark made by Obama.

When is it OK to talk about lipstick on pigs? It depends.

Sen. Barack Obama is being lambasted for his statement about Sen. John McCain and Gov. Sarah Palin's policies not being about change but "just calling the same thing something different."

"You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig," Obama said during a town-hall style event in Virginia on Tuesday night.

As you probably recall, Palin got applause at the Republican National Convention when she said that the only difference between a pit bull and a hockey mom (meaning herself) is that the latter wears lipstick. I think there are a few other differences, but I won't go into that here.

Now McCain's camp is acting outraged, outraged! It is accusing Obama of talking about Palin, calling Barack's comment "offensive and disgraceful" and saying Obama owes Palin an apology. This war hero and his self-described pit bull are so sensitive!

Meanwhile, McCain may have conveniently forgotten (hey, the dude's, like, really old) that he once used the same analogy in a 2007 Chicago Tribune article about Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's healthcare plan. And I didn't hear anything about Hillary demanding an apology.

"I think they put some lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig," McCain is quoted as saying about Clinton's proposal.

If I were a pig or a pit bull, I might be offended. But right now I'm a little more worried about my mortgage, the price of gas and the economy, stupid.

War Hero Putzes like McCain and Pit Bulls like Palin would rather play the victim than talk about the issues, as they lie to Americans and play voters for fools.

It's a secure feeling knowing big bad John McCain is ready to fall over and play the victim at the drop of a hat. Who ever said Republicans aren't brave, honorable people? But Palin playing the victim over this is just plain over the top wacky. Between the two of them she's the one wearing the pants...

Wow. Just, wow.
First off. Too much has been made of this whole 'lipstick' comment by both sides. I had to turn off the radio yesterday because it was ad naseum.

Palin uses an old old joke to buy time while the teleprompter is getting screwed up and everyone uses the lipstick as a rallying point.

Then, Obama uses and old saying, knowing full well that some folks would catch the word lipstick, draw a correlation to the prior mention of lipstick, and when all hell broke loose, he could through up his hands and confess innocence. That's something schoolkids do.

The best response from the Republicans? Ignore the whole thing and when it was brought up, shrug their shoulders and say "We really can't get angry at the Democrats for this, anymore than we would get angry at a blind man for stepping on my foot. They just can't help it."

By the way, I drink iced tea (de-caf, sweet n low) not Kool-aid.

Please show and/or link to any such statement by Palin or one of her staff that indicates she is playing the victim care here. I have yet to see it and doubt she would go down that road herself. It is unfortunate that someone from the McCain camp claimed outrage and demanded an apology. Why? It's better to just let Obama play the fool which he has been doning so well since the introduction of Sarah Palin.

The McCain/Palin campaign has been pushing the "she's a victim" card for days now, J.R. They speak for her.

Naw - CNN announced the joke before Palin's speech began - they had an advance copy of the prepared remarks and they brought up the "lipstick on a pig" joke before Palin appeared on stage.

SO how much of the rest of your comment is made-up lies as well, Dwayne?

J.R.:

Really? Days? It has been less than 48 hours since Obama's gaffe. You know just because you wish something to be true, doesn't make it so.

Lee Ward:

Yes, really - days - over a week in fact. Quit being a disingenuous putz, J.R.

Cindy McCain Plays the Victim Card for Palin

Oooh, these poor conservative women. They are being so abused. Of course back when Hillary Clinton was making the same complaint these same conservative women slapped Clinton down for whining.... Prospective first lady Cindy McCain tells ABC News' "Good Morning...

Well, I, uh, I didn't watch the speech on radio.. uh, on CNN and I thought, after I read,, uh, heard about the teleporter malfunction..

Daddy, are you reading a teleprompter?

Uh, Hi, honey. As I was saying, a teleprompter malfunction, I mistakenly assumed that the joke was linked, and therefore tied and related to the malfunction. So, it should be obvious that I was mistaken and the comments I made about the 57 states I have visited...uh, about the next President Joe Biden...uh, about the joke being made up on the spot was not a lie, but was proof that I was wrong, inadvertently, of course.

J.R.:

That's such a weak response Larry that it only makes you look more the fool.

Lee, Palin has yet to complain, nor it seems, give one indication that she is a victim of anything. Cindy McCain may have her opinion, but that's all it is. Your inept attempt to link your own opinion is a pretty lame justification of them playing "she's a victim" card for days. But keep wishing all these smears are true as you watch the one you now adore (after going after him mercilessly in the primaries) go down in fits of confusion and rage.

Lee Ward:

There was no teleprompter malfunction. That was another right wing lie used to prop up Sarah Palin as something more than an unqualified hockey puck. - Link

Let us know how many lies you make up versus those you repeat from other bogus sources. I'd like to keep a scorecard.

"Palin has yet to complain, nor it seems, give one indication that she is a victim of anything."

The campaign has been loudly complaining for her, and she has not once contradicted them in any of her many, many public appearances.

"There was no teleprompter malfunction. That was another right wing lie used to prop up Sarah Palin as something more than an unqualified hockey puck. - Link"

Thanks..uh, thank you for the link. Now I can be better led..uh, informed and I will make..uh, er.. uh, will NOT make that mistake again.

However, terms such as ,uh.....make, uh... appear to.. terms such as 'unqualified hockey puck' do not fall in the realm or region, possibly the arena, of tolerant, uniting discussion.

"terms such as 'unqualified hockey puck' do not fall in the realm or region, possibly the arena, of tolerant, uniting discussion."

In response to Republican lies - highly appropriate.

Ray H.:

Why doesn't this site have the links back to the other wizbang sites like those sites have to here?

Lee Ward[TypeKey Profile Page]:

The publisher (Kevin) makes these decisions, Ray.

J.R.:

Hey Lee, just to clarify, is there a Republican out there that doesn't lie?
