Lipstick On A Pig



This clip, from a Barack Obama campaign rally in Virginia, has led to Republican accusations of misogyny.

Here is the Democrats' robust response:

"The McCain campaign's attack tonight is a pathetic attempt to play the gender card about the use of a common analogy - the same analogy that Senator McCain himself used about Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton's health care plan just last year," she continued. "This phony lecture on gender sensitivity is the height of cynicism and lays bare the increasingly dishonorable campaign John McCain has chosen to run."

Will the Republican condemnation stick to Obama, or will it lead to more airtime being given to the accusation Obama was making, i.e. that behind the glamour of McCain/Palin lies the same old GOP?

This is especially hilarious because Obama's economic and healthcare policies don't differ from McCain's either. Also that "speech" looked terrible. He's throwing it away!

I thought the speech sounded pretty good, but his body language is rather odd. What the f**k was he doing with his left hand as he delivered the crucial lines?

I think it looks like he's really sweating (as well he should be).

To answer your question - counting off the points, wanking, mopping the sweat from his brow, then back to pocket pool.
