“I KNOW He Ain’t Said That!”

LEBANON, Va. — “That’s not change,” Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., said of what Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., is offering.

“You know, you can put lipstick on a pig,” Obama said, “but it’s still a pig.”

The crowd rose and applauded, some of them no doubt thinking he may have been alluding to Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s ad lib during her vice presidential nomination acceptance speech last week, “What’s the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? Lipstick.”

“You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called ‘change,’” Obama continued, “it’s still gonna stink after eight years.

“We’ve had enough of the same old thing! It’s time to bring about real change to Washington. And that’s the choice you’ve got in this election.”

Obama added that “it is not going to be easy … John McCain has a compelling biography, you know Sarah Palin is an interesting story.”

The crowd booed.

“No, she’s new!” Obama said. “She hasn’t been on the scene, you know, she’s got five kids and my hat goes off to anybody who’s looking after five. I’ve got two and they tire Michelle and me out!”

Wasn’t this guy touted as a gifted speaker? I haven’t seen much evidence of it. According to ABC news, his audience thought he was referring to Sarah Palin as a pig. Since these things are highly scripted, I would have thought that a sycophant should have detached his lips from the Obama posterior long enough to say something like “Dude, you’re trying to woo women who supported Hillary, maybe you should rethink that comparison”, but nooooooo.

    At least Hillary pandered to the center/left. BHO is pandering to the looney left outta desperation. Leave him be, he’s just making the landslide bigger.

    Well, I’m just going to stand back and try to avoid the splatters from all that pandering.

    He IS a ‘gifted speaker’ – as long as there’s a written script to go by & the format of what he’s supposed to say is…um…oratorical?…sermon-like? But I got the feeling this one was supposed to be more folksy…and this guy can’t do folksy for nuthin.’ His personal style is elegant & sophisticated (cough), not ‘man of the lower classes.’

    The ‘lipstick on a pig’ reference is something I use all the time. This dweeb has no clue.
