Obama Fucks Up

Obama's campaign is starting to remind me of the 2007 New England Patriots.

Yes, "put lipstick on a pig" is an old adage, but I am thinking that this wasn't the best way to get your point across, Barry. The stuttering didn't help either.

It took awhile to find a non-biased news story to compliment the video. FOX, CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC, AFP, AP, BBC, etc. all couldn't resist spinning the story; shockingly the most unbiased reporting (at least initially) was found at Reuters:

Obama gets ovation with ‘lipstick on pig’
Democrat Barack Obama enjoys poking fun at his Republican opponents and their claims to being “agents of change.”

But Obama’s comments at a town-hall meeting in southwestern Virginia may have been misinterpreted by the audience.

“You can put lipstick on a pig. It’s still a pig,” he said as the crowd cheered and yelled and eventually got to their feet.

“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 audience, which had a particularly strong reaction whenever Obama mentioned Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, appeared to enjoy the “lipstick” comment the most.

When Palin gave her acceptance speech at the Republican convention in St. Paul she joked about being a hockey mom, saying the only difference between a pitbull and a hockey mom was lipstick.
I have to say that it is very unlikely that Obama said that on purpose. I just can't believe that any presidential candidate in America, especially one from the "compassionate" liberal left, would deliberately call his opponent's female running-mate "a pig."

For the masses however, this just puts an exclamation point on the litany of unhinged and frothing-the-the-mouth left-wing attacks on Sarah Palin by the Liberal Blogosphere and the MSM.

So this is how I see the last few weeks:

Obama and McCain are tied 40 to 40, with 10 minutes to play in the 4th quarter. McCain just scored big to tie it up, and then called an on-sides kick, and recovered the ball, stunning the fans with his bold tick play.

Palin is subbed for McCain, and goes under center, 1st and 10 at the McCain 45. She takes the snap, and throws a bullet pass that hit for a few yards, but she was tackled by Obama's linebacker after they play... 15 yard penalty. After the thug player is called for the penalty, he attacks the referee, and is called for an additional 15 yards. 1st and 10 at the Obama 25

Palin drops back to pass, and hits WR T. Base over-the-shoulder for a TD, extra point good!

McCain's kicker just kicked off, and Obama's return man decided to run it out, 5-yards deep from the end-zone. He shucked and jived, but ended up being tackled at the 10.

Obama in the shot-gun, get's the snap, and fumbles! He chases after the ball in to the end-zone where he is tackled for a safety!

It's McCain's game to loose now.
