If "Lipstick on a Pig" is Such an Obscure Connection That It Never Occurred to Obama, How Come Bob Beckel Was Debuting the Joke Just a Few Days Ago?

Sneak preview!

Beckel: I thought she said the difference between a hockey mom and a Rottweiler -- or maybe it was a pig? -- was lipstick, right?

Surely Uhhhbama is too scary-brilliant to come up with his own applause lines, I suppose.

Then again, he's taking talking points now from Keef Olberrmann. Might be too much work for too little payoff (that's why I'm not doing it), but I bet a google search would find that the "pig/lipstick" line was written hundreds of times by leftwing columnists, bloggers, and "diarists" before Uhhhbama said it.

Thanks to... forget who.

It's Old: JiminJersey--

In his statement Obama also said "You can wrap and OLD fish in newspaper called change. It's still going to stink after 8 years. I agree. Everyone is ignoring the "old fish" line. Obama added the "old" which is obviously a direct reference to McCain which makes the "pig in lipstick" Palin.

It's on the basis of this that I don't give Uhhbama the benefit of the doubt. This was calculated.

The thing is, he did it with enough plausible deniability that I feel a little silly bushing the point (and, frankly, I think the McCain camp looks silly pushing it).

Yes, he almost certainly intended it. But, like his flip-off of Hillary, he did it cannily enough that he can claim, sorta plausibly, that he meant no offense; he's just an idiot.

Don't You Know That It's Different For Girls? Obama's pretty darn-tootin' mad about all these silly "misogynist" charges. Why can't we all just stop dwelling on innocent words, he wants to know.

You know what's not silly? Claiming every damn thing your opponents say is "stelath racist messaging," that's what.
