John McCain says he’s about change, too — except for economic policy, health care policy, tax policy, education policy, foreign policy and Karl Rove-style politics. That’s just calling the same thing something different.
You can put lipstick on a pig; it’s still a pig. You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called change; it’s still going to stink after eight years.
[Hillary Clinton’s plan for healthcare is] vaguely — not vaguely but eerily — reminiscent of what they tried back in 1993. I think they put some lipstick on the pig but it's still a pig.Is this a cheap shot at Hillary’s femininity? And, Mr So-Called Obama, what about fish? Also, try and deny it, your comments are totally piggist.
For the past 600 years Brits have had their own Norman French slogan for these occasions — Honi soit qui mal y pense (“Evil be to any that think evil of it.”). Nice that it’s so relevant. It speaks truth into this situation, and takes us all back to the dear ol’ days before everything went to hell in handcart. Vote for Edward III! Up with the Treaty of Crétigny! Bicameral parliaments Now! Down with the Black Death! Free public bow and arrow shooting on the village green for the French wars! It’s time for a bit of true chivalry in politics...
PS: Anyone seen discarded lipsticks near any pigs they know?
