Yes it appears to be. Just looked at Drudge.

So, Obama points out what many believe are failed policies of the Bush administration, then he says even with lipstick it is still a pig, and you automatically spin it to mean he is talking about Palin? Wow, just wow.

Any rational person would see that he is calling McCain's peromise of change and the policies he would implement are simply the same as the Bush administration policies, just with McCain's name on it. A pig with lipstick.

Of course, Obama's involvement with trying to implement age appropriate sex education in schools, which included teaching young kids what they should consider innappropriate contact, thus protecting them from sexual predators, is spun into teaching kindergratners how to have sex. I mean, come on. What next?

Black people can call themselves "insert racial slur here" but white people can't. Same difference, what he said speaks of his character.

The Iowa Electronic Markets (basically the futures market of politics) still has Obama in the lead. I admit, that the latest line is from yesterday but I would be willing to bet that this remark will have very little effect on the market (which has been a surprisingly effective predictive tool for elections in the past).

You're probably right that it was likely just another poorly worded comment by Obama and not an attack directed at Palin. But it's obvious by the crowd reaction that they saw it as an attack.

I guess I'm not a rational person. Along with many other Americans.

I watched the speech. While he did use it while talking about McCain's politics, he paused and the crowd laughed when he said that. Very choice words that were used on purpose to mock Palin. He could have said anything else when describing McCain's politics, but he used that phrase because it was the same phrase that got her so much press the week before!!

May have been a mistake, but then again, if he's stupid enough to make that mistake I worry about him leading a country

I have noticed with the latest public speaches by Obama that he seems to be loosing the "used car salesman" smoothness , he is almost speaking like Pres. Bush with the hesitations, mumbled wording ....like a Person with their mind in another place.

I also interpreted his pig / lipstick as a jab at Palin but he also hit Hockey moms and women in general with his poo poo flinging.

I'm getting sick of the talk the talk , all I want is a Pres. who can walk the walk.

I've noticed that too. I wonder if it has anything to do with his CIA/FBI briefing that he recieved in Chicago. Once a candidate has been chosen by their party to possibly become the next President, they are briefed on many (but not all) of the classified world affairs going on. I wonder if he realized just how difficult the job is; and that many of his "I'll sit down with terrorist states and talk to them..." ideals have been shattered.

Could be but honestly he seems rattled a bit and for the sake of the country we need somebody with thick skin and the ability to work under pressure.

True, True...

But playing devils advocate, how would it be if the Vice President is someone who foreign leaders just sit there and wonder what her hooters look like? I like Palin, but it's something I wonder about.

Most Muslim states want Obama to win...that's reason enough for me to look in a different direction. I think they see weakness and the sharks are starting to circle.

Because they want somebody from their own religion to be the most powerful person in the world.

Boobs are GOOD !!! it gives me something to focus on other than a nasty tie or some crazy comb over . Maybe tight jeans and a half buttoned up shirt will get more peoples attention. ..... I'm kidding but she is the prettiest political contender I've ever seen ...no Moles to distract from the pleasure of watching

you're so right, McCain not understanding that Al Quaeda operatives weren't in Iran based on the differences between sunnis and shiites isn't nearly as troubling as Obama making a wise apple about Palin...sheesh.
