Sen. Barack Obama is taking heat for his offensive "lipstick on a pig" comment. I bristled when I heard his awkward comment yesterday.
While I am happy that Obama is finally fighting back against the personal attacks coming out of the McCain-Palin camp, he can't compare a female to a pig and then take offense when the media jumps all over him and takes him to task for it.
When a candidate refers to his opponent and says, "if you put lipstick on a pig, it's still a pig," - someone is going to take offense. That's only natural. Now if the same were said about Michelle, Obama would be outraged - and rightfully so.
So maybe he should dispense with the "cute" metaphors and just get down to the business of running a smart campaign.
By the way, where is Michelle?
