QUOTE OF THE DAY: “The other side, suddenly, they’re saying ‘we’re for change too,” Obama told the crowd. “You can put lipstick on a pig. It’s still a pig. You can wrap up an old fish in a piece of paper and call it change. It’s still going to stink after eight years. We’ve had enough.” Barack Obama, 9/9/08.
Yeah, Barack — we’ve had enough too.
So, WHAT DID OBAMA REALLY MEAN? Why did he chuckle and wait for the jeering laughter from his crowd of followers?
Obama, I think today even you are starting to realize that you have 99 problems and a “bitch” certainly IS one.
UPDATE 9/10/08 AT 12:06pm eastern: In response to the furor over yesterday’s “lipstick on a pig” remark, today Obama told us, “Spare me the phony outrage.” Well, okay then. We’ll spare you the phony outrage Barack and give you the authentic variety on November 4th. That sure will be Sweet-ie.
Vote for Democrats for every slot you in good conscience can. But vote for Obama? After what he did to Hillary Clinton? After he didn’t even consider her or her 18 million voters when he chose Joe BoringBiden. After what he did to Alice Palmer? After what he did to his grandmother? After what he did to Geraldine Ferraro? After what he did to the Sweetie Reporter? After what he did to Sarah Palin? After what he did and continues to do to all of us?
I don’t think so. No matter what shrieking shade of purple or red lipstick the increasingly Desperate One tries to put on today to spin his way out of this one, IT IS STILL A SEXIST PIG.
Oh, and because I just can’t resist taking one more jab at these hate-filled demagogues who have used every slimy tactic in the Swamp Misogyny guidebook to get us to shut up, sit down, and do as we’re told, let’s put some lipstick on this Sexist Pig.
Reminder: We DO need funds to keep our momentum. Our budget has always been lean and mean — no salaries, consultants, lobbyists, etc etc — but even the grassiest grass-roots effort needs help. Please consider a donation today. You can contribute HERE, and THANK you!
