The politics... they anger!
On Tuesday, Obama criticized McCain's economic policies as similar to those of President Bush, saying: "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."

The McCain campaign contended that the comments were directed at Palin, the GOP's first woman on a presidential ticket. In her acceptance speech last week, she had referred to herself in a joke about lipstick being the only difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull.

As a woman, I am appalled that McCain would use Palin's gender in order to try to attack an innocent statement from Obama. I mean, FFS, have they never heard that line before? It'd be like Obama saying "A cigar is just a cigar" and having McCain cry out, "You leave my daddy out of this, he smokes cigars!"

It used to be that I just hated McCain's opinions and ideals. Hearing about his politics makes me want to puke.

There are... no words for McCain's campaign. NO WORDS.
