Democratic Presidential Candidate Barack Obama took the unusual step of being one of the few Presidential candidates in memory to personally attack a Vice Presidential Candidate. As fans laughed and jeered,
"OBAMA: That's not change. That's just calling something the same thing something different. But, you know, you can't? ?you know, you can put lipstick on a pig; it's still a pig. (live from video)
For a reminder of how Obama's comment is being interpreted from his listening audience and those who watched the video, one must remember what was said by GOVERNOR PALIN: "I love those hockey moms. You know they say the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? Lipstick. "
Obama, interestingly enough, plagarized his speech comments, before the pig comments, from a current political cartoon in the Sept. 5th Washington Post by Tom Toles.
Plagarism, pork, and personal smears seem to be the nature of the Obama campaign for change.
