Okay, he said John McCain’s recycling George W. Bush’s economic policies is like “putting lipstick on a pig.” And then all sexist-card claiming hades broke out. My question is, where has the Democrat’s fast response team been? (Oh, I forgot. The Daily Show and Colbert Report are off this week…). Republicans had an ad out attacking Obama nano-seconds after his remarks. An ad portraying Barack Obama as a wolf? Any racist subtext to that one, intentional or otherwise, that could be revisted back upon the Republicans? Of course there is. But Democrats are too high minded to get down in the GOP muck and fight back. Hey Dems, how’s that been going for you? (Let’s see, 3 & 6 in the last forty years. That’s decent .333 ball, ain’t it?)
Dems, pool your quarters—and grad students with google and lexus-nexus—and find one instance of John McCain and/or Sarah Palin using either the phrases “Night and day” or “Black and white.” The ad you should have run immediately this week shows them saying those line, then says “Black and white? Night and day? Are John McCain and Sarah Palin playing quietly being racists while blasting Barack Obama?” Long pause with dramatic music. “Of course not. And Barack Obama wasn’t being sexist. And John McCain and Sarah Palin know it. They just don’t want YOU to think about meaningless drivel like who’s got lipstick on what. And they DON’T want YOU to think about what’s really important for America—and YOU. Like will you have a house, job or healthcare next year. Election 2008—it’s too important to waste spending time on cr*p like this!”
And then Barack Obama, hugging a pig, can say he endorses the ad…..
I read with some pleasure that the Obama campaign is finally saying it’ll get a bit more down and dirty. I’ll ultimately believe it when I see it. You can lead a horse to water after all…but, then, one dares not use animal metaphors in this political climate.
