McCain says Obama didn’t call Palin a pig
15 September, 2008
Did Barack Obama really call Sarah Palin a pig, as a John McCain ad leads people to believe? “No,” McCain said Monday. The Republican presidential nominee defended the ad anyway, saying Obama “chooses his words very carefully.”
The implication: Obama was slyly up to something when he said McCain’s call for change in Washington is “lipstick on a pig,” days after Palin made a lipstick joke at the Republican convention.
“He’s very eloquent,” McCain told The Associated Press and Florida newspapers in an interview, and “it was the wrong thing to say.”
So, the advert was a lie, but it was an okay lie because the other guy is very eloquent?
McCain cut off a question about the “Bridge to Nowhere,” which Palin claims to have killed in Alaska even though Washington pulled back money for the project before she turned against it.
“The important thing is she’s vetoed a half a billion dollars in earmark projectsâ€”far, far in excess of her predecessor and she’s given money back to the taxpayers and she’s cut their taxes, so I’m happy with her record,” McCain said.
So happy that I’m sticking with they lie that she turned down the Bridge project instead of had it taken away from her by Congress!
