This is all, of course, dust-up from Barack Obama's on-the-stump remark about the Republicans putting lipstick on a pig, i.e., trying to dress up their relationship, oneness, really, with Georgie B.
Then again, you could say it all really started with Palin herself when she used lipstick to assert her own toughness as she spoke at the Repubs' convention.
What's the difference between a pit bull and a hockey mom, or something to that effect? Lipstick!
On well, on goes the war, and the lies that have long accompanied it and, in fact, gave birth to it.
