so Palin has the copyright stigma on the word lipstick now? And any references to a inadvertant word she may have used is completely off limits? What a joke.
The insinuation is deplorable and the libs reaction is oh he didn't mean it like that.I'd love to see the reaction if Palin had said you can take the boy out of the ghetto but, you get the picture. Your guy is getting desperate I saw him today in reaction to Bush's troop speech and the Messiah looked a little haggard, pissed and the halo was gone.Another fallen Messiah is in making.
Obama [muhammeds horsey] hangs with commie's and terrorists Mccain fights them.

C'mon, this is nothing. You know, we conservatives spend a lot of time and energy pointing out how unfair it is whenever people always assume the worst about our intentions or they make unreasonable and stupid inferences into clearly inocuous and normal language and turns of phrase. Creating controversy where none exists and implying sexism or racism where none clearly exists is a toxic thing, no matter who does it. Just because its may be finally nice to see the left possibly reaping the whirlwind they helped sow doesn''t mean it isn't toxic. We're no better than them if we pretend Obama didn't mean exactly what any reasonable observer knows he meant: he was making a point about how McCain can claim to be about change all he wants but he really isn't. Lipstick on a pig is a phrase common to our culture. Let's grow up. This sort of thing is toxic and unfair, regardless of who it hurts in the moment. We shouldn't wield it as a hammer if we are going to complain when it is wielded as a hammer against us. The object of political discourse is to allow people to make points without fear of being branded a bigot, not selectively choose to use or feign offense to this sort of thing, just to garner short-term political gain. I don't like Obama or his policies, but as the nominee of a major party he has earned the right to say his piece and let people evaluate his views. Ditto for McCain. Let them have their debate in good faith and let the people decide. Let's not resort to childish insinuations and such....
This is a non-story and if the GOP tries to manufacture a story out of this, they are pathetic. Obama was saying McCain isn't about change. Standard stump-speech boilerplate, nothing more....
