Barack Obama tries to clarify his ‘lipstick’ statement

I’ve always thought it interesting that the Chinese word for “lipstick”, kou hong, translates into English literally as “mouth red”. But I digress…

…Fresh off accusations that he insulted Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin by talking about pigs and lipstick, Barack Obama went on the over-the-hill David Letterman’s show to clarify his comments. Nobama said that he was talking about John McCain’s policies being a pig and that, even with lipstick, they would still be like President Bush’s.

That’s understandable, I suppose. It must be nice to have an audience like that to be able to clarify one’s comments. I wonder if Letterman ever allowed Dan Quayle time to go on his show and explain his side of the “potato” incident.

    McCain has become quite the politician since he got his party’s nomination; he has proven time and again that his strategy for winning is based on personal attacks and distracting people from the main issues… i just hope people aren’t as gullible as McCain seems to think they are

    when sarah palin said her statement about lipstick it was ok because she was a woman saying it… but obama saying lipstick on a pig is still a sexist remark coming from a man… he had no right to say that at all…. and alot of women are offended from this…. its not going away so easy… and it is not being dismissed by this woman…
