Clueless or just mean-spirited, Barack Obama told a crowd today, "You can put lipstick on a pig," he 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."
The Obama campers are saying their guy was just using an old and common phrase. Politico lends doubt, "Democratic Congressman Russ Carnahan on Tuesday – introducing Joe Biden at a campaign event – ripped into Palin’s record and punctuated it with this snarky jab. “There’s no way you can dress up that record, even with a lot of lipstick,” he said."
Obama is losing the Presidential race ever since naming Joe Biden to the ticket. Today Obama just plain lost it with his pig remark. Biden is usually the one running off at the mouth, but with Obama doing it for himself, one has to wonder what Joe Biden is for.
Obama is not going to be forgiven this gaffe. It's too late for him to recover. You just can't make silk purses from sows ears. Obama is through.
