Pitbulls, Pigs & Stinky Fish....

Pitbulls, Pigs & Stinky Fish.....
Must be a presidential election year ~

"You can put lipstick on a pig," he said to an outbreak of laughter, shouts and raucous applause from his audience, clearly drawing a connection to Palin's joke. "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."

McCain's campaign immediately organized a telephone conference call in response and called on Obama to apologize for calling Palin a pig. Obama's campaign said he wasn't referring to Palin; he had been talking about McCain immediately before the lipstick comment.

Can you imagine this call?

I demand you apologize to my VP for calling her a pig.

No sir, it was YOU I was calling a pig. Have a nice day then....

Seriously- after all the lies & shit the McInsane camp has flung, they call to say *be nice*.

Jeez! Obama should let McLies calls go to voice mail.

ZOGBY says McCain/Palin is seeing a 20% increase in support from white women.

20%? WTF? Palin isn't Hillary. In fact, Palin is 180' opposite of everything Hillary says she stands for.

I don't get it. How can women be that desperate to vote for a woman who is more like Cheney or Pat Robertson than she is like Hillary?

Christopher-- I don't know ANY white women, black , hispanic or otherwise who are for Palin. Not even remotely considering Palin-- in fact so many are offended by this pick of someone so inexperienced. & unqualified for the job.
People who pay attention at all realize just how unqualified Palin is and furthermore, her anti abortion, book banning, fire those who disagree, creationist, with a hefty dose of hypocracy-- tout abstinence and both her & her daughter are unwed & pregnant is an insult.
I think there is not that much *bounce*... but this may be Rovian tactics.... just SAY the race is tight & keep saying it so the masses believe it (they just eed one poll they conducted or they wrote to justify the announcement.

But it would have helped if the bloody media would have immediately said here is the list6 of lies from Palin's acceptance speech.

I just can't imagime anyone who suffered at all under Bush-- and let's not kid oursevled lots of businesses are going down, under the Bush regime because the economy has tanked.

You really only hear the McCain camp spewing the same sound bites. they are not talking about the heavy issues- torture, Gitmo, the war....Foreign affairs. Even when they do broach on the subject-- it;s "Obama will talk to nations that would do us harm".....where the crowd dutifully boos.

We've lved so long under this idea of enemies, people have forgotten the concept of diplomacy.

I'm so sick of the republican bullshit.
I can assure you I am one white woman who would never vote for any candidate who was such a joke, foe to the environment, anti women's rights, the list goes on....

What I have heard of it on the news was republican women who said palin won them over.... not dems.

BUT Palin has had an unscrutinized say whatever spree-- being able to document her lies & bring other truths to light- as well as the debates (god I wish they had REAL debates-- no questions in advance..... at least high school level) to get past the rhetoric and field real & difficult questions, Palins lack of knowledge will shine through.

Enigma posted a great site link Women against Sarah Palin...
