Obama makes a funny. I say since the bridge to nowhere lie persists, and Palin-McCain have cranked out another nasty ad, nothing wrong with a little metaphor. Apparently, this one has Ms. Ding Dong Ditch in an uproar:
Swamp: In suburban Detroit, Obama said perplexed that the Republicans were trying to take away his mantra of change.
"How do they have the nerve to say it?" Obama asked. "When you've been supporting this current president, your party has been in power, and you're not offering anything new, how is it that you're serious about change? You're not. It's empty words. You're just saying it because you realize, 'Obama has been talking about change. That seems to be working. Maybe we should try to say it too.'"
And in Lebanon, Virginia, he said, "You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig," as laughter erupted. "You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called change, but it's still going to stink after eight years."
It should be noted that during the Republican primary, McCain compared former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney to a pig.
I can't believe I missed that one today. I'll dig up some video if I can.
