Lipstick on Dynamite

without comments

So, Obama made a comment on late-night TV about McCain’s campaign being akin to “putting lipstick on a pig” due to stale ideas. McCain’s camp has jumped back, accusing Obama of making a sexist comment aimed at Sarah Palin.

Perhaps it’s just a little crazy of me, but this doesn’t exactly seem like a comment that a person in a presidential campaign would make as an attack on the other side’s VP pick.  If Obama were to truly make a comment about Palin, he’d be sure to make it a well-developed one. Obama is not a stupid man, and even though he may seem to be doing well right now, he’s not going to throw away the entire race on one comment.

Besides, if Obama were going to make any sort of sexist comment, he’d have made it already, back when Hillary was still in the race. He didn’t make any sexist comments and he isn’t gloating about his victory over her, so why should he make a dumb comment about Palin?

I know that people should think for themselves, but it’d certainly be nice for candidates to drop the slandering. It’d make the whole election process better.
