Stems Cells and Pigs

The momentum is gone, in fact it is beginning to look as though they are perhaps moving in a backward motion, losing ground and now racing to keep up.

They being Barack Obama and slow Joe Biden.

Today Obama said the following:

You Can Put Lipstick on a Pig, But It’s Still a Pig

Now he claims the remark was not meant towards Sarah Palin.
In fact his campaign said:

Enough is enough. 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.

The campaign also noted that it is in fact a fairly common idiom and they are correct.

However, watch the video below and you will see it is clear that at the very least the crowd took the comment as being directed towards Palin.

It seems clear though that it was in fact directed towards her when you consider that this very day Obama surrogate Representative Russ Carnahan of Missouri siad of Palin and her record:

there’s no way you can dress up that record, even with a lot of a lipstick

This was no mere slip of the tongue, this was a directed and purposeful attack.

Now Joe Biden was out to do his part in the self wounding of the campaign, not to be shown up by Obama.

Joe thought instead of attack one person, he would attack a whole group of people. In specific parents of special needs children who happen to also hold a moral stance against stem cell research and application.

I hear all this talk about how the Republicans are going to work in dealing with parents who have both the joy … and the difficulty of raising a child who has a developmental disability, who were born with a birth defect.

Well, guess what, folks? If you care about it, why don’t you support stem cell research?

Watch the implosion folks, this could be a good one.

The sheer stupidity of the Obama camp does not mean McCain/Palin can sit back and relax.
Stay alert McCain, this thing is far from over.
