The GOinkP

The Republicans have nothing, absolutely nothing to run on, so they continue to use Sarah Palin, the world's first republican straw(wo)man. They hide her from reporters and scream foul at any critical look into her past. Today the McCain campaign has been twisting Obama's words about republican failed policy. No one is calling Sarah Palin a Pig. She is not a pig, neither is she a bulldog, or a barracuda, or a reformer, or a champion of any social issues. She is a governor of a state that is almost completely funded by the federal government and oil companies. She did leave the city she was major of in bankruptcy.
But no one ever called her a pig.
Pig however is a great metaphor for the GOP. For the past eight years it was been gobbling up our resources, sticking it nose were it does not belong, and leaving a trail of destruction and filth here and all over the world.
McCain, Palin and the Republican party are trying to put lipstick on a pig. Thats the change they are offering.

Gutter Politics: McCain Campaign Called Out For Half-Truths


The Washington Post has an article today on the repeated lies and lack of accountability in the presidential race:

From the moment Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin declared that she had opposed the infamous "Bridge to Nowhere," critics, the news media and nonpartisan fact checkers have called it a fabrication or, at best, a half-truth. But yesterday in Lebanon, Ohio, and again in Lancaster, Pa., she crossed that bridge again.

"I told Congress: 'Thanks but no thanks for that Bridge to Nowhere up in Alaska,' " Palin told the crowds at the "McCain Street USA" rallies. "If we wanted a bridge, we'll build it ourselves."

The New York Times looks into how Obama's lipstick line was taken out of context:


A new character is making a debut at Senator Barack Obama's campaign rallies: His name is John McCain.

It began quietly on Monday in Michigan, but grew in volume as Mr. Obama made his way from Flint to Farmington Hills, carrying over to a speech on Tuesday morning in Ohio. By the time he arrived for an evening stop in the southwestern tip of Virginia, Mr. Obama's sales pitch contained nearly as many references to Senator McCain as to himself, suggesting how the McCain campaign has been driving the recent dialogue of the presidential race.

"John McCain says he's about change, too -- except for economic policy, health care policy, tax policy, education policy, foreign policy and Karl Rove-style politics," Mr. Obama told his supporters here. "That's just calling the same thing something different."

With a laugh, he added: "You can put lipstick on a pig; 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."


In the latest sign of the campaign's heightened intensity, Mr. McCain's surrogates responded within minutes and called on Mr. Obama to apologize to Gov. Sarah Palin for the lipstick remark. But to those in the audience, it was clear that Mr. Obama was employing an age-old phrase -- lipstick on a pig -- and referring to Mr. McCain's policies. He had not yet mentioned Ms. Palin at that point of his speech.
