Someone Put Lipstick On John McCain

"I think they put some lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig,"
-John McCain, 2007, referring to Hilary Clinton's Health Plan
"You can put lipstick on a pig, it's still a pig. You can wrap an old fish
in a piece of paper called change. It's still going to stink after eight
-Barack Obama, 2008, referring to McCain's plan for change in Washington.

What's the difference? When Obama says it, it's sexism according to McCain.

McCain's campaign immediately organized a telephone conference call in response and called on Obama to apologize for calling Palin a pig. Obama's campaign said he wasn't referring to Palin; he had been talking about McCain immediately before the lipstick comment.

Hmm, playing the sexism card, eh?

That's a little bit rich coming from a guy who offered his wife as a contestant in a lewd, topless, biker "beauty" pageant.

Or...who offered this steaming hot nugget of (un)funny, about a teenage girl:

"Why is Chelsea Clinton so ugly?
Because her father is Janet Reno."
That's just peachy. How about this one, when referring to his wife:
Three reporters from Arizona, on the condition of anonymity, also let me in on another incident involving McCain's intemperateness. In his 1992 Senate bid, McCain was joined on the campaign trail by his wife, Cindy, as well as campaign aide Doug Cole and consultant Wes Gullett. At one point, Cindy playfully twirled McCain's hair and said, "You're getting a little thin up there." McCain's face reddened, and he responded, "At least I don't plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt."
Sounds like a sexist dickhead to me..But why stop there? Johnny's on a roll:

"Did you hear the one about the woman who is attacked on the street by a gorilla, beaten senseless, raped repeatedly and left to die?" McCain reportedly asked an audience during his 1986 Senate campaign, according to Arizona's Tucson Citizen. "When she finally regains consciousness and tries to speak, her doctor leans over to hear her sigh contently and to feebly ask, 'Where is that marvelous ape?'"


To top it all off, here is the video of what Obama said:

It was not even close to referring to Palin. What a damn fool for even speaking about sexism and especially when it is not even close to being legit.

If McCain was someone's grandpa we'd say "Oh, that's Grandpa, he's a crazy war vet who has a temper", but it's a guy one step from the presidency, so what do we say? "Oh, that McCain - He's a maverick!". Whatever.

Let's hope the MSM keeps the cameras on him - he is bound to let the mask slip.
