Palin Spokesman has an Unguarded Moment

Ben Porritt, a spokesman for Sarah Palin, told a group of college students at his alma mater over the weekend that he didn't think that it was a big deal that Barack Obama used the phrase "lipstick on a pig" when comparing the policies of John McCain and George W. Bush. He "felt Obama was just using an expression," according to a story in the Peoria Journal Star. But then he told the rest of the Palin media team about Obama's comment, and they "flipped out," he said, flogging it for days. Somehow I doubt this guy has a bright future in media relations.

I think Obama did mean it to be about Palin. Its just too much of a coincidence coming right after her Pit Bull joke. I think he was mad at her put downs of him being a community organizer, etc... He even admitted it; he said he "got the last punch."

I think If Obama loses that this will come out after the election too. Theres going to be a huge... bloodletting after the election, from the Lipstick pig insult to playing the race card against the Clintons in the primaries. Insiders will spill their guts.
