Obama Smears McCain-Palin As Lipstick On A Pig
That's right Obama, keep smearing Sarah. You'll go far this November! NOT!

Obama Puts Different Twist on Lipstick
What’s the difference between a more hopeful kind of politics and old-fashioned attacks? Lipstick.
Barack Obama says the John McCain-Sarah Palin policies don’t represent change, they’re “just calling the same thing something different.”
“You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig,” Obama said during a town-hall style event here Tuesday night.
The comment played on Republican vice presidential candidate Palin’s joke during the Republican National Convention that the only difference between a pit bull and a hockey mom was lipstick.
Obama has been hammering the Republican ticket for adopting his change mantra. “This is a guy who supported George Bush 90% of the time. What does that say about somebody’s judgment that they agree with George Bush 90% of the time?” he said.
“You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called ‘change,’ it’s still going to stink,” Obama said. “After eight years, we’ve had enough of the same old thing. It’s time to bring about real change to Washington and that’s the choice you’ve got in this election.”
