"You can put lipstick on a pig. It's still a pig.”

That was the “seeing purple” Senator from Illinois. You know, the one who’s going to bring us all together by reaching across the aisle and ennoble us all with his soaring, inspirational rhetoric and positive campaign.

I guess that all goes out the window when you’re falling behind, and losing more ground every day.

Of course, everyone knew who he was talking about in his calculated, rehearsed remarks. Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, who proudly calls herself a “hockey mom,” and memorably saluted all those other hockey mom’s during her speech at the Republican National Convention:

GOV. PALIN: I had the privilege of living most of my life in a small town. I was just your average hockey mom and signed up for the PTA. I love those hockey moms. You know, they say the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull: lipstick.

The McCain camp wasted no time in hitting back with a stinging "lipstick" ad.

Obama then went on "Late Night with David Lefterman" in an attempt to quell the outrage, and insulted everyone's intelligence by claiming he was misunderstood:

Obama: “But keep in mind that, technically, had I meant it that way, she would have been the lipstick, you see?” (audience, Dave laugh) “But now we’re…”

Dave: “I don’t know, you’re way ahead of me.” (audience laughs)

Obama: “Yeah, the failed policies of John McCain would be the pig.”

Oh, right. Even if we didn't notice all the Obamasiah followers laughing and snickering because they knew he was referring to Palin, that's so much better. Calling your opponent, a true American hero who suffered for years in squalid torture chamber in North Vietnam, a pig, well that's so much better.

Yeah, or a "dead fish", which was his other analogy.

He's just sooooo different!
