PUMA: Are You Freaking Kidding Me Award? Gumby Obambi
Today’s Are You Freakin’ Kidding Me? Award once again goes to Barack Obama for his fake outrage and trying to make the American Public believe that he really wasn’t talking about Sarah Palin with the “lipstick on a pig” comment.
I know everybody has heard quite enough about this, but I do have a relevant point. To refresh everybody’s memory, according to CBS News:
Tonight Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., said of McCain painting himself as a change agent, “You know, you can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig.” … “You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called ‘change,'” Obama continued, “it’s still gonna stink after eight years. We’ve had enough of the same old thing! It’s time to bring about real change to Washington. And that’s the choice you’ve got in this election.”
The McCain campaign called Obama’s comments “disgraceful” and demanded an apology. The campaign added that Obama, in addition to calling Palin a pig, might have also been calling John McCain a fish, which, of course, would also require an apology.
and the current situation according to Ben Smith over at Politico:
Speaking at a high school in Norfolk, Obama took a few moments to address what he calls “the made-up controversy” of the day, Amie Parnes reports.
Obama said the McCain campaign moved to “seize an innocent remark and take it out of context because they knew it’s catnip for the news media.”
Obama called the attacks “lies, outrage and swift boat politics.”
UPDATE: McCain spokesman Brian Rogers responds: “Barack Obama can’t campaign with schoolyard insults and then try to claim outrage at the tone of the campaign. His talk of new politics is as empty as his campaign trail promises, and his record of bucking his party and reaching across the aisle simply doesn’t exist.”
The reason Gumby is receiving the AYFKM? Award today, you may ask? Gumby is getting immersion therapy with this award today because he is trying to pull the same type of stupid, sexist, misogynistic stunt twice and he got caught this time. I do not believe for one instant that he did not know what he was doing or saying, and for all of you out there, including Governor Huckabee, pay attention and watch this (at 1:26) and you will understand the pattern of behavior of this very juvenile, supposed senator, empty chair, from Chicago, Illinois.
After watching that, is there any doubt in your mind that we are dealing with a juvenile? Are we ready to turn this country over to this fool and his dubious associates?
