Lipstick Smears

From CBS News:

The McCain campaign jumped hard on Obama’s use of the phrase “lipstick on a pig.”

In addition to an Internet-only video, their “truth squad” quickly set up a conference call. The claim: “Obama was talking about Sarah Palin.”

Former Republican Massachusetts Gov. Jane Swift, a member of the Palin Truth Squad, said: “Sen. Obama in Lebanon, Va., this evening said [what] I can only deem to be disgraceful comments, comparing Governor Palin to a pig.”

What connected Palin to the comment? They say it’s a line from her convention speech: “What’s the difference between a pit bull and a hockey mom? Lipstick.”

The Facts: Obama had not mentioned Palin. He was focused on the central argument of his campaign: that McCain’s promise of change is hollow because his policies would be no different than President Bush’s.
