Who’s the lipstick? Who’s the pig? The real truth about the Republican campaign
Barack Obama wittily explained it on the David Letterman show the other night (so wittily that I think it came from a speech writer, not from him), when he said that far having called Sarah Palin a pig, he had called her the lipstick.

Terry Morris replies:
