McCain Also Caught Talking About Lipstick on Pigs

Barack ObamaHaven’t heard the latest controversy about pigs wearing lipstick? Well, then you haven’t been watching the news.

Today, is being fired upon from John McCain’s camp about comments he made during a speech yesterday. When talking about his opponent’s plan for change, the Democratic candidate chose to use this colorful analogy: “You can put lipstick on a pig, it’s still a pig.”

And while that phrase has been used many times before, McCain supporters felt Barack’s “sexist” comment was aimed directly toward (the “Pitbull with Lipstick”). Unfortunately, the Republicans also failed to realize that their own candidate had used that same analogy about a certain female contender last year.

The numbers are huge, sure, but still not as big as the 26 million the Democratic Convention drew just the week before. And now, both conventions are over….and which one is everyone talking about?

Wednesday Ratings: ANTM Hits New Low

Unfortunately for CW, good luck did not come in threes.  Despite impressive debuts for Gossip Girl and 90210, the 11th cycle of America’s Next Top Model failed to impress.
