You can put lipstick on George Dubya Bush, and it's still him underneath it.
I had to chuckle at this "sexist outrage." She already compared herself to a pit bull with lipstick, and Obama was just using a metaphor that's old as the hills about putting lipstick on a pig (not as old as the hockey mom one she used, but both have been kicking around for some time).
I really think we're dealing with John McBush and Dubya Palin here. If the lipstick fools you, you're not looking deep enough.
(I'd rather kiss a pig on the lips than vote for McCain/Palin - with or without lipstick. It's a pretty thin disguise, you know)
ADDENDUM: The Rethugs are throwing a fit over the "pig" comment, but look who used it in 2007 referring to Hillary:
McCain criticized Democratic contenders for offering what he called costly universal health-care proposals that require too much government regulation. While he said he had not studied Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton's plan, he said it was "eerily reminiscent" of the failed plan she offered as first lady in the 1990s.
"I think they put some lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig," he said of her proposal.
And Obama used it like this in 2007:
'I think that both General Petraeus and Ambassador Crocker are capable people who have been given an impossible assignment,' Sen. Barack Obama said yesterday in a telephone interview. 'George Bush has given a mission to General Petraeus, and he has done his best to try to figure out how to put lipstick on a pig.
