McCain/ Palin take Umbrage at "Lipstick on a Pig" Comment

Lancaster, PA (UPSI) – Democratic Presidential Nominee Barack Obama today leveled criticism at the McCain campaign, characterizing its new attempts at portraying Sen. McCain and Gov. Palin as Mavericks as merely “putting lipstick on a pig”. The McCain campaign swiftly retaliated, demanding an apology from Obama for what it insisted were sexist slights directed at vice presidential nominee Palin.

“We have put a lot of hard work into Gov. Palin,” stated a McCain campaign spokesperson, “and it is really beginning to pay off. She is proving to be quite adept and flexible in getting across the Republican party’s messages. She’s one tough cookie and the perfect person to put an end to Washington’s spending on pork, and bring home the bacon for the American people.”

Sen. McCain was reported to be livid over the entire incident and remained with his vice presidential candidate as a show of unity throughout the day.

“The Obama campaign obviously has no honor,” continued the McCain campaign spokesperson. “We entirely expect to see a plethora of references to an angry old man tomorrow, in response to Sen. McCain’s righteous indignation over the incident.”

The campaign stated that both candidates would continue for now with the scripted press encounters, taking no questions, as the strategy appeared to be working well for them.
