In the interests of fairness, I honestly have to say that I do not think Senator Obama used the “pig on a lipstick” saying to attack Governor Palin. If anything, I think as soon as he heard that roar, he thought, oh crap, I probably shouldn’t have said that.
Cynics will tell me otherwise and in many cases like this I might agree it was a calculated attack, but Obama is already having enough trouble with women, and there’s plenty of other material to attack Sarah Palin on.
Just doesn’t add up. Campaign trail gaffe, is all it is, but net loss, Obama, fair or unfair.
