"I think they put some lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig,"
Barack Obama on the fact that John McCain's policies are identical to Bush's, September 2008:
"you know you can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig."
"Lipstick on a pig" is sexist! It's a swipe at Sarah Palin, despite being my own words and directed at me! He's a sexist! My running mate has a vagina! All vaginas should vote for my vagina!
Me, (and also Barack Obama): Stop wasting airtime on this kind of stupid shit and start covering *real things*, reportermorons.
And a pile of *other* past uses of "lipstick on a pig", largely from Republicans. Another past Obama usage, *three* more McCains, a Dick Cheney, a Lynne Cheney, Ann Richards, John Boehner, Dick Santorum....
