Uhhh, okay, folks let's listen to everything, not just a one-sentence soundbite. Those goose-stepping Republicans are crying "foul" over Barack Obama's statement, "You can put lipstick on a pig, it's still a pig", claiming he called Sarah Palin a pig!!!
Come on, are we really that stupid? Listen to the three sentences he said before that and the three after. He was talking about McCain's proposed policies, and McCain claiming that he was the real change candidate. McCain's proposals was the pig in question. He made no mention of Palin.
It's a phrase he used in the primaries about Hillary Clinton's health care proposals. The Republicans use that phrase all the time.
The Republicans want to fool you with cheap tricks like having Sarah Palin running as VP. This is just another one.
By the way, if you don't believe me, Google "lipstick on a pig".
