Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

STICKY NOTES: Lipstick on a (Sexist) Pig?

J., you've outdone yourself with this one:

Pretty in pink—Just like his politics!

Re: the title, A "sexist pig" is what news commentators would be calling Barack Obama today, if he had an (R) after his name.

As a member of the Privileged Elite, however, he can expect to be totally free from scorn.

Gotta love our "unbiased" press.Update: The original video is here.

I know I'm not the first person to point this out, but Barack Obama really sounds quite pedestrian when he's not busy reading from a TelePrompTer. Can he really not get through a simple point without stammering?

Does he really expect that he'll be able to get very far with his international push "for diplomacy," if he's completely incapable of communicating unscripted points?

Image over substance—That's your Democratic party.

I'm hearing scuttlebutt that His Royal Highness, King Obama has actually taken the time to personally respond to the lipstick on a pig "smear." It would seem that the Republican Party is becoming quite adept at getting this guy off-message.

Keep up the great work, you dastardly RNC types!

Of course someone beat me to this and with much classier photoshoppping than I could manage with my freebie program.

It's the first thing I thought of this morning when I heard the Obama clip on my local Right-Wing Conservative (TM) talk radio station. Nicely done!

There is an old say: "When you sling mud at someone, you may miss, but your hands will remain dirty"

Apparently no one in Mr. Zero's campaign ever heard that before.

if you took time to be informed. You would have seen the entire statement made by obama,but then again the repubs will do anything to use slander and scare tacticts to is the entire statement that "right wing media" will not run.Obama criticized McCain's policies as similar to those of President Bush, saying: "You can put lipstick on a pig. 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."The lipstick maxim is hardly new to either Obama or McCain. The Democrat has used it in the past, and McCain repeated the folksy metaphor when he criticized Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton on health care. McCain was never accused of being sexist when he uttered those words.So for the sake of the country be an informed voter.

The picture just doesn't work, Brian.

You can put lipstick on a sexist pig. He's still a sexist pig.

I think indy is right. I don't think Obama was referring to Palin. I think he used the word "pig" because all kuffar, Jews, & Infidels are apes & pigs.

DMartyr: hahahahaa

Indy.... talk about naieve. if at any other time his comment would have not received an iota of notice. Even from the audience. The phrase is old and tired. However, he used it RIGHT after Gov Palin used it to attack Obama. And, shortly after she used it, he turns around and uses it with reference to a pig.

He MAY not have been using it against her.. .but it sure does represent distaste, classlessness, and utter bad judgment on his part. He got the response he wanted. Is this the kind of judgment, or lack of, we want in a president when it comes to opposing dictators?

Love the pic brian... even if I did beat you to the news. teeeheee

Hey Brian, put him in a pink jacket too if you can.

too bad other liberals disagree with you in the interpretation of the comment.
