i found that outrage bob dole was looking for

“You can put lipstick on a pig,” (Obama) said to an outbreak of laughter, shouts and raucous applause from his audience, clearly drawing a connection to Palin’s joke. “It’s still a pig. You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called change. It’s still going to stink after eight years.”

McCain’s campaign immediately organized a telephone conference call in response and called on Obama to apologize for calling Palin a pig. Obama’s campaign said he wasn’t referring to Palin; he had been talking about McCain immediately before the lipstick comment.

  1. I guess it’s a good thing he didn’t quote Beavis: “You can’t polish a turd.” No one is exposing the cynicism and hypocrisy of the McCain campaign and the Republican Party better than The Daily Show and The Colbert Report.

  2. That was completely elitist. Anyone worth their salt knows it’s “lipstick on a goat,” not a pig.
