    Behind? None. Under? Ask that magnificent ape.

    Why is there a picture of Linda Tripp on this post?

  • Cogito Ergo Bibo

    He can and will spend every day hiding beneath Caribou Barbie’s skirts. I mean, have you seen what’s under Cindy’s?

  • shortsshortsshorts

    Dick said it. Fred said it. WHY ARE THEY ALL SECKSIST?

  • Canmon (the Inadequate)

    Obama didn’t mean it as an insult but a compliment. This is just a cultural misunderstanding. Pigs are revered in Islam.

    Why havent they got back at Hopey by calling him a nigger?
    Waiting until the debates?

  • Gopherit v2.0

    I never say this, but: I’d hit it. With the lipstick, that pig is HAWT.

  • AngryBlakGuy

    …the ironic thing is the fact that they are trying their best to morph Sarah Palin into the presidential candidate but are using the excuse that “voters, vote for the top of ticket” to justify her not answering any questions from the press.

  • freakishlystrong

    [re=91473]magic titty[/re]: Believe me, there will be a pop-out any minute now…they have already called him “uppity”, TWICE..

  • Cogito Ergo Bibo

    [re=91473]magic titty[/re]: They already did. Today.

    Employing an animal reference of his own, he [Brian Rogers, a spokesman for the McCain-Palin campaign] added: “Apparently, the BUCK never stops with Barack Obama.”

    Wait… Sarah Palin isn’t a pig?

  • greatgooglymoogly

    Scooped again: These guys are hilarious – I just hope some of this is true. The only relevant thing, though, is whether Palin used state money for her kids problems.

    Gad. Surely there’s someone out there with ONE FREAKIN’ PICTURE of SP naked. Not boinking the football team or jerking a horse. Just … naked. Showin’ her tits. This would be o.v.e.r.

  • AngryBlakGuy

    [re=91473]magic titty[/re]: …you obviously haven’t been visiting the comment sections Politico! This was all the Republicans needed to pull out their white sheets and hoods.

    [re=91477]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: How can anyone consider her presidential material if she always hides behind Grampy Walnuts!?

  • Servo

    I see this “lipstick” episode as the pesky string that McCorpse yanks on to unravel the cheap suit that is his campaign.

  • Sussemilch

    Because it distracts from the truth that John McCain actually is a rotting fish in a newspaper.

    [re=91485]columnv[/re]: If Abe were alive, he’d be singing, “”It’s my party, and I’ll cry if I want to…”

  • greatgooglymoogly

    Plus, Obama’s return on this should and could be the same tactic the Republicans have used to diminish social services: the “soft [whatever]-ism” of lowered expectations. That is, Obama can effectively say that McCain is demonstrating overt sexism and treating women in a paternalistic and demeaning way by insisting that Sarah Palin isn’t tough enough to take a punch.

  • All Mod Cons

    Just want to remind everyone, never to wrestle with a pig. You get dirty, and besides, the pig likes it. Whoops, did I just call Sarah Palin a pig?

    This little gem of a link was sent to me last night. I’m probably behind the times, but it’s totally killin’ me.

    I am wondering where the Robert Novak post is…

    A lipsticked pig is their “False Idol”? D’oh!

  • JadedDIssonance

    All these metaphors are confounding my non-lady brain.

  • natoslug

    This whole uproar over pigs and lipstick is just a misunderstanding based on how we view the world. For example, to Liberals, a well-hung black man has an enormous schlong. To Conservatives, a well-hung black man is the one they just lynched. Poh-tay-toe, poh-tah-toe. We all need to learn to look at things from both the Liberal and Conservative perspectives before saying anything. And then just accept that the pig is actually hotter than Palin.

    There are no pictures of SP nekkid. She lives in Alaska, they even wear parkas when bathing up there.

  • magic titty

    [re=91489]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: They’re all over the NY Post and Daily News boards too. When Stokely Carmichael said civil rights legislation wasn’t for black people, he was right.
    This country is so fucked i’m refusing to snark for the rest of the day.

    Not even goddamned Ron Paul and his lunacy can make me smile.

    I believe he can and would spend all 56 of them doing just that, if he got 50% + 1.

  • JadedDIssonance

    [re=91499]RuperttheBear[/re]: Looks more like she rescued him after his escape from the RNC.

    Once upon a time a farmer went to market and returned with a lipsticked pig, a rotting fish in a newspaper, and the federal budget. On his way home, the farmer came to the bank of a river and hired a boat. But in crossing the river by boat, the farmer could carry only himself and a single item of his inventory – the pig, the fish, or the budget.

    If left alone, the pig would earmark the budget to death, and the rotting, disease-ridden fish would give the pig cancer.

    The farmer’s challenge was to carry himself and his inventory to the far bank of the river, leaving each purchase intact, without voting for the black guy. How did he do it?

    I’m done with metaphors.

  • Special Agent Jack Mehoff

    [re=91513]Terry[/re]: ZOMG Sarah Palin is a “nevernude”!

  • Gopherit v2.0

    [re=91540]capitol hillbilly[/re]: Oh MAN! When the hell are these babes gonna endorse Obama? THey have the unicorn, the rainbow, and EVERYTHING! And they sing about a stupid, evil bitch. All Barack would need to do is add “I’m barack Obama and I approve this message” to that video.

  • PoliTacky

    “How many of them can McCain spend hiding behind Palin’s skirt?”
    Why, he’s making it sound like Little Johhny McCain is a weakling!

    Doesn’t he know that Johhny’s plane got shot down over Laos and he was captured and tortured, but immediately planned an escape with some other prisoners: stealing the guards’ weapons and shooting 3 of them, he took along another prisoner and, completely shoeless but for a single shoe sole shared between them that they found in the jungle, headed for the Mekong River to escape to Thailand. His buddy was killed by Laotian jungle people but he escaped again, surviving on snakes and insects until he both burned down an abandoned village and waved part of a parachute he found to signal to a passing Air Force pilot who then rescued him… He’s a fucking goddamned hero, goddammit!

    Oh, wait…. I’m thinking of Dieter Dengler. Nevermind.

  • HughJennicks

    Sorry Liberabble, Obama clearly got it wrong this time.
    He should have said,
    “put lipstick on the barracuda”.

  • capitol hillbilly

    [re=91549]Gopherit v2.0[/re]: “I’m Barack Obama, and the Donnas fucking ROCK.”

  • facehead

    should’ve said “you can put lipstick on a vagina, but it’s still a dirty crotch-hole.”

  • TGY

    Hopey meant “lipstick on a cig”, of course. Totally.
