A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing is Still a Wolf!

There are hundreds of sayings that speak to the fact that you cannot camoflage old ideas with a new coat of paint and call them new. No matter how you dress it up Bush/McCain still means pain.

Brian Rogers, a spokesman for the McCain-Palin campaign, chastised Mr. Obama for trying to blame the media for reporting the lipstick remark, rather than taking responsibility himself.

“Barack Obama can’t campaign with schoolyard insults and then try to claim outrage at the tone of the campaign,” Mr. Rogers said in a statement. “His talk of new politics is as empty as his campaign trail promises.”

Employing an animal reference of his own, he added: “Apparently, the buck never stops with Barack Obama.”

If Obama were into trying to make out of context hay, the last sentence by Mr. Rogers could certainly be used to show how the McCain campaign is deviously playing the "race card." Far fetched! Sure! But then so was the interpretation of the "lipstick on a pig" line.
