John McCain Thinks You're Incredibly Stupid

Here's what Barack Obama said:

John McCain says he's about change too, and so I guess his whole angle is, 'Watch out George Bush -- except for economic policy, health care policy, tax policy, education policy, foreign policy and Karl Rove-style politics -- we're really going to shake things up in Washington,' ... That's not change. That's just calling something the same thing something different. You know you can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig.
Not surprisingly, this tripped the fake outrage sensors in the McSame campaign:
McCain's campaign said Obama's remarks were offensive and a slap at Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin -- despite the fact that the Arizona senator himself used the phrase last year to describe a policy proposal of Hillary Clinton's.
That's how stupid John McCain thinks American voters are. He thinks we're stupid enough to forget that we've ever heard the old expression "lipstick on a pig." He thinks we're stupid enough to convince ourselves that Barack Obama made it up right then and there, as a way to insult the only lipstick-wearing candidate in the race, Sarah Palin.

I don't know anyone that stupid. McSame has just insulted every voter in the United States.

I think Barack Obama thinks that you're incredibly stupid. He creates the controversy by saying something extremely snide and then tries to claim that others are burying his message? He buried his message!

He reminds me of the kid who takes a cheap shot and then immediately says to his angry buddies: "Ok, from now on we all play fair".

Bottom line: the lipstick comment was stupid.

Sorry, no. Please don't embarrass yourself this way. Your blogger profile says you're a law student. Law students are supposed to have sharp analytical minds. I'm sure you do. You can see this is phony.

The lipstick-on-a-pig thing was not directed at Palin. And you know it wasn't.

b.t.: Were you watching the Repubs campaign? Talk about cheapshotville! The truth and bottomline is this: McCain will help you if you are rich. Obama will help you if you are poorer or middle class. I watch the people who attend McCain/Palin rallies. They don't look rich to me. I am not being stuck up or anything, but they don't look rich to me. So why are they wasting their time on two people who are not going to help them in the long run? Palin's pretty face or McCain's dynamic military service are not going to pay the electric bill or buy food for Sally Mae's lunchbox! I certainly hope that once this "Palin Lovefest" is over they
realize what is best for them.

honestly john mccain is an idiot for thinking women would vote for palin just because she is a woman who should dress a little more "candidate" appropriate since clinton got crap for a little cleavage.... obama is a way better choice for president
