Re: Lipstick on a Pig

Guys, the point here isn’t whether Obama meant to insult Palin with this remark. The point is that some of Palin’s supporters believe Obama meant it that way. (Trust me, I’ve got some experience with giving unintended offense.)

Talk radio is having a field day with this remark already, and Team Maverick’s ad is just their way of breathing a bit of oxygen on the sparks. Team Obama’s response (via the Politico):

The McCain campaign’s attack tonight is a pathetic attempt to play the gender card about the use of a common analogy — the same analogy that Senator McCain himself used about Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s health care plan just last year. This phony lecture on gender sensitivity is the height of cynicism and lays bare the increasingly dishonorable campaign John McCain has chosen to run.

If the lipstick-on-a-pig remark is so transparently inoffensive, why would Obama feel the need to respond? I think Team Obama has been shaken by the poll trend in recent days and they’re starting to get jittery.
