Just when you think Barack Obama couldn’t sink to an all-time low, he does in a way that was vile and offensive to women. Obama made a remark, directed towards Republican Vice Presidential candidate, Sarah Palin, where he said, ”You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig.” This comment has been made by several candidates, including Obama and John McCain in the past, but not directed towards a woman in an offensive, deragatory way.
Now, you may ask what’s wrong with this statement. First, this comment is out of line. One can see that this is a clear attack on Palin by saying that she will represent the past behavior of Republicans. Why would you stoop down so low to attack? I guess this is politics as usual.
Palin made a humorous remark during last week’s Republican National Convention comparing a hockey mom as a bulldog with lipstick was all in humor and completely tongue-in-cheek.
The remarks by Barack Obama represents the dirty politics of the past, not the change we are seeking. At least, McCain and Palin will bring the right change to Washington and shake things up.
