    Yesterday Obama said in a speech:

    http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/washingtondc/la-na-campaign10-2008sep10,0,311675.story

    The McCain camp demanded an apology, claiming Obama was calling Palin a pig. :rofl:

    Does McCain's overraction mean:

    none of the above. good effort, though.

    there are dozens of phrases that the O-man could have used to express the same sentiment. Why, he even could have worked in a pig (silk purse out of a sow's ear) if that was important. He stupidly referred to lipstick and the republicans took advantage of it.

    For a guy who's supposed to be a consummate politician, Obama's got a tin ear. tough luck for him

    Why? It's a common phrase, and one McCain himself has used.

    Are you guys really this emotional?

    not at all. i don't take any offense to it, but the fact is it was a stupid thing for him to say, given Palin's lipstick reference in her speech, and now he's paying the price for it.

    was he a legacy at Columbia?

    heh heh

    I'm surprised then that you didn't choose McCain thinks women are stupid.

    I should have put a choice that McCain thinks Palin is a shrinking violet and needs to be protected from lipstick comments.
