Thoughts on the Lipstick/Pig comment.
Politico pretty much hit the nail on the head, as did most everyone else. It was a slip, but it was stupid beyond belief (maybe partially freudian, who knows). Anyway, in such a tight presidential race as this, whoever outlined Obama's points - him or not - should have seen the reference and known that someone would jump on it - if not the MSM than more lethally Matt Drudge.
Which he did.
Not sure, maybe Obama is trying to get back in the spotlight. More likely, though, it's just a result of 18 hour days from campaign workers. McCain is all over it, which seems to be bothering a few people, myself included. He's slinging a little more mud than I expected.
