Obama on Palin: 'Lipstick on a pig'

Obama’s cage has finally been rattled, attacking Republican VP nominee Sarah Palin and calling her — I kid you not — a pig.

In Lebanon, Virginia of all places:

The crowd apparently took the “lipstick” line as a reference to Palin, who described the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull in a single word: “lipstick.”

What is it with Southwest Virginia and gaffes that end political careers, anyhow?

UPDATE:  The offending remark on video.

The theme of “lipstick” has been an obsession with Democratic boosters attacking Palin over the last week. Obama staffers are denying a comparison, even though Obama followed up his comments with several sharp, direct attacks on Palin.

According to reporters there in Lebanon, the crowd certainly got the joke (at Palin’s expense).
