Making Stuff Up September 10, 2008

Posted by gregquill in Uncategorized.

I think that there are good arguments that neither Obama nor McCain would be a good choice as President.  More evidence comes to light daily.

I also think that each side should play fairly in the campaign.

The latest brouhaha concerns an apparently innocent Obama comment about putting lipstick on a pig.  The McCainistas want us to believe that it was intended as an insult to Sarah Palin, who informed us that lipstick is the only difference between a pit bull and a hockey mom (such as she); and who apparently wears the stuff.

The comment was to the effect that putting lipstick on a pig doesn’t change the fact that it’s a pig.

Of course it’s innocent. It pre-dates the hockey mom thing by about, oh, 72 years. It’s about trying to make something look better than it really is, such as, say, Bush’s Iraq record, for instance. But besides all that, why don’t Obama’s keepers screen his comments?  Or at least listen to his rants in the RV before he steps outside,  commits them to history and soils himself . . . again?! Do they enjoy these constant debates on nuance, or could they possibly avoid them for 60 days? Apparently they all (both McCain-dudes and Obama-ramas) need some seasoning before they are permitted past the doors at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. (Though the Bush-wackers don’t seem to be all that seasoned, come to think of it.)

It reminds me of another story: 

Why should one not try to teach a pig to sing? 

Because it frustrates the teacher, and it annoys the pig  Sarah Palin and the GOP.

McCain understands the comment. He used it against Hillary in 2007, speaking of Hillary Health Care II.

Is John gonna apologize to Hills?
