Obama Trash Talk Alert - 9/9/08

Kyle-Anne Shiver & Lee Cary
Barack Obama's proclivity to use trash talk when under stress, noted earlier on the American Thinker, continues.

In this posting on Politico today, Ben Smith reports that:

Amie Parnes reports from Lebanon, VA:  Obama poked fun of McCain and Palin's new "change" mantra.  "You can put lipstick on a pig," he said as the crowd cheered. "It's still a pig."  "You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called change. It's still gonna stink." "We've had enough of the same old thing." The crowd apparently took the "lipstick" line as a reference to Palin, who described the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull in a single word: "lipstick."

Obama could claim he was merely borrowing from what the late Governor Anne Richards (D) of Texas said about Bush 41, "You can put lipstick and earrings on a hog and call it Monique, but it's still a pig."  But that will ring as incredible denial with many.  Palin has used the "lipstick on a pit bull" analogy, and her husband is a commercial fisherman, so we know who Obama was trash talking about.

Meanwhile, today FOX News Elections HQ reported that,

"FLINT, Mich. Sept., 9 - Barack Obama broadly accused his Republican rivals of dishonesty Monday, citing former lobbyists working for John McCain, Sarah Palin's shifting stance on the "Bridge to Nowhere" and their promise to change Washington. {snip}
Obama wouldn't go so far as to say McCain and Palin are lying, even when the audience tried to goad him into it, but he began showing an ad Monday that did. "Politicians lying about their records?" an announcer asks over a shot of McCain and Palin boarding a plane. "You don't call that maverick. You call it more of the same."

How soon before he chants, "Liar, liar, pants on fire?"

The Obama Campaign swinging its big bus down onto the low road will not be a pretty sight -- to anyone.
