Obama uses a very common analogy and McCain whines.
"You can put lipstick on a pig. It's still a pig. You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called change. It's still going to stink after eight years."
In an absurd attempt to make this a gender issue, the McCain camp shows what they really think of Palin.
"McCain's campaign immediately organized a telephone conference call in response and called on Obama to apologize for calling Palin a pig. Obama's campaign said he wasn't referring to Palin; he had been talking about McCain immediately before the lipstick comment."
From McCain: "Cry, Baby Cry"
McCain certainly is "old enough to know better".
