For anyone to take that elderly slang phrase personally is flat-out stupid. First off, the entire statement was as follows:
'We're really gonna shake things up in Washington,'" Obama said, mocking McCain's claim to offer change. "That's not change. That's just calling something the same thing, something different. But you know you can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig.
"You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called change. It's still going to stink after eight years. We've had enough of the same old thing! It's time to bring about real change to Washington. And that's the choice you've got in this election," Obama said.
A direct slam to Palin, calling her a pig? Gee, does that mean McCain is the old fish? Get real.
This is just more Bushite b.s., drawing attention away from the real issues. The economy, for one. And that's a biggie. Anyone with a fourth-grade education in history should be shocked and disgusted about that.
Mind you, I'm not advocating war. But war, like it or not, stimulates the economy. Every single time in history, except this one. Gee, I wonder why? How can we have a war and a recession at the same time? Do tell us, McBush.
VOTE OBAMA! In the words of Hillary Clinton, "No way, No how, No McCain." He didn't fool me by appointing a woman, because he picked one who's against every woman's issue I'm for, and for every issue I'm against. Eight years of this drek is enough. We want REAL change, not just lip-service to fool the republican/conservative sheep.
