It is unbelievable how right-wing bloggers have spent the last 24 hours chucking spears at Senator Obama when he was doing nothing more than calling a spade a spade the other day while attacking those Republican blackguards attempting to carjack his message of change. They clearly did not correctly understand the senator because he is so unexpectedly articulate. And clean.

If the blogosphere would have waited just one cotton-pickin’ moment to think about it, they would have realized two things. First, when Obama referred to “lipstick on a pig”, he was only referring to John McCain’s attempt to remake himself. Second, the only reference to Sarah Palin intended by the senator, who lives in the Gangster Disciples capital of Chicago, was the bit about the fish.

Because, you know, she’s from Alaska, where fishing is a major industry.
