  At Least They Didn't Whine About the Fish
Jeez Jane. Are you really willing to put your credibility on the line like this?
Jane Swift went quickly to work this evening as a leader of a brand new "truth squad" defending GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, excoriating Barack Obama for a comment he made while campaigning in Virginia today.

Obama told voters that they shouldn't believe John McCain and Palin's talk about reforming Washington. "You can put lipstick on a pig," Obama said. "It's still a pig."

"You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called change. It's still gonna stink," Obama added. "We've had enough of the same old thing."

Republicans took offense, saying that was a personal attack on Palin, who during the GOP convention speech last week, asked delegates if they knew the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull. Pointing to her mouth, she exclaimed, "Lipstick."

Swift told reporters on a conference call that Obama's comment was "disgraceful" and that "he owes Governor Palin an apology."
The proper reply to this crap should be:
Disingenuous crocodile tears are not what the American people are looking for in their leaders. I'll let you decide whether I just called someone a crocodile.
I fully expect former acting Governor Swift to condemn John McCain's identical comment on Hillary.
She is a Republican and therefore naturally inclined to act like a sheep. She's also partially to blame for the Romney headache as far as I'm concerned.
Sadly, this is what the American voters have come to demand from their candidates. No one wants to hear about issues, they don't understand them and couldn't understand a valid point from a bogus point. So to make themselves feel a part of the process, they gravitate to "issues" of this sort like ants to sugar.

I apologize if I offended any ants with this post.
Why is it that the last thing one expects from an organization called a "truth squad" is the actual truth?

Does truth even exist in politics?
