A Pig's Eye

So Obama wasn't referencing Palin with his pigs and lipstick comment on the trail today? Fine. It's not like Sarah Palin didn't make a joke about lipstick at the convention, or it's not like people haven't been using lipstick as a metaphor a little more of late. They have. But because John McCain and Dick Cheney have used that cute little pig euphemism in the past it's just an odd coincidence, right?

Right. Sort of like this coincidence..



Or this one..



Let's cut the crap. McCain stole the polls and Obama is on the attack. He needs to get back in the headlines. Of COURSE the lipstick comment was a 'dig' at Palin--he is probably trying to bait her out into the open so the MSM can get a crack at her and expose the secret weapon (we'll soon see if that amounts to tugging on Superman's cape).

Just hardball politics, the kind Obama claims he's above while sinking deeper into by the day along with his supporters. Juvenile, and no doubt a turnoff to most sane Americans (who still aren't paying close attention). McCain/Palin should let the collective butt-showing parade march on for awhile longer. Actually, this sounds like a good time for Fred Thompson and his cigar.

This blog is getting progressively more difficult to follow. One day, its chickens in every pot. The next day, pigs are on the menu. ;-)

Greg (over at LA's site) offers a YouTube link where a House Democrat compares Obama to Jesus, and Gov. Palin to Pontius Pilate.

Yep. This is an amazing election year.

I am sure you are not fully aware they serve good BBQ down in AC's neck of the woods. Maybe we should meet there and try some, sometime. Then, we could play the slots down on the river. I won some money at the Grand Victoria a few years ago.
