As frustrating as hypocrisy can be, I can’t complain too terribly much, as it gives me stuff to write about.
So, without further ado…
… I’ll just jump right in.
John McCain’s campaign is lashing out at Obama, calling him sexist because of a comment he made during a recent speech.
Specifically, Obama stated that you can “put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig”, while explaining to the crowd that McCain doesn’t represent the change he wants people to believe he represents.
Basically, you can put it in a pretty package, wrap it with a bow, call it whatever you want… but if it ain’t change, it’s…
Still the same.
Obviously the lipstick reference came in response to Sarah Palin’s the-only-difference-between-hockey-moms-and-pit-bulls-is-lipstick comment from her now notorious speech at the RNC.
McCain, of course- spin doctor that he is- has jumped all over Obama, saying that his pig comment was sexist.
No it wasn’t.
It was funny- but it wasn’t sexist.
I wonder if this means that when McCain used almost the exact same “pig” analogy a few months ago, in reference to Hillary Clinton, he was being sexist too.
I’d say so…
What I can’t say is that I’m surprised by any of this.
McCain and Palin have cornered the market on accusing Obama of doing things they themselves have done- and often, have done even worse… like with the earmarks thing.
This, my friends, is yet another example of idiocracy… err… democracy- at its finest.
