Lipstick On A Pig

Don't know whether to laugh or cry:

At a campaign event in Virginia, Obama mocked McCain and his running mate for their effort to co-opt his campaign's "change" mantra."

"You can put lipstick on a pig," Obama said as the crowd cheered. "It's still a pig."

"You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called change. It's still gonna stink."

Though Obama prefaced the "lipstick" jab by referring to the GOP ticket's political positions, Republicans charged it was a thinly disguised slam on Palin, who famously described herself as a hard-charging hockey mom during her GOP convention speech last week.

Personally, I would have thought they would have been more insulted by the reference to an old fish still stinking.

Come to think of it, if I was Sarah Palin I would be most offended by the Republicans thinking that a comment about putting lipstick on a pig somehow referred to her.
