Sarah Palin. Barack meant something else when he said it, but this comment is a spot-on summary of her campaign and political career.

She may be an ex-beauty queen, but this porker's record is as ugly and dirty as they come. Google "Anne Kilkenny" for the gruesome details.
God help us all if that woman becomes VP (and let's face it, she's really running for president as McCain has not just a foot but most of his body in the grave already). You can put lipstick on a pig, but she'll still be a piss-poor candidate.

(a misogynistic term originally used by some Democrats to insult Sarah Palin during the US presidential campaign of 2008); they didn't like how much make make-up she had on)

a) overkill, when people go over and/or beyond their call of duty or responsibilities, or beyond acceptable socio -moral boundaries when doing something.

b) when people, for whatever reason, go out on a limb, and propose, for their zeitgeist, extremely novel, eccentric, living underwater type ideas for the improvement and/or regeneration of their society
a) I support capital punishment as a principle for certain crimes and under certain conditions, and will not, under any circumstances, go lipstick on a pig and reject the principle of capital punishment itself because I hate lethal injection or lethal gas as a method of execution; or, I might reject the use of capital punishment for a specific case; the moral of the fable is, do not go lip lipstick on a pig and betray your own moral principles.

b) The Philosophes, people such a Rousseau, Diderot, Voltaire and Montesquieu, among others, did indeed go lipstick on a pig between the death of Louis XIV and The American Revolution and accidentally ushered in The French Enlightenment

I support capital punishment as a principle for certain crimes and under certain conditions, and will not, under any circumstances, go lipstick on a pig and reject the principle of capital punishment itself because I hate lethal injection or lethal gas as a method of execution; I will simply state that IMHO such methods of capital execution (but not the idea of capital punishment itself) absolutely unacceptable in modern, humane, society. Or, I might reject the use of capital punishment for a specific case; the moral of the fable is, do not go lip lipstick on a pig and betray your own moral principles.

A horrible, sexist smear against female Vice Presidential candidates, especially when used following a sentence that has nothing to do with said Vice Presidential candidate.
"John McCain says he's about change too, and so I guess his whole angle is, 'Watch out George Bush -- except for economic policy, health care policy, tax policy, education policy, foreign policy and Karl Rove-style politics -- we're really going to shake things up in Washington.' That's not change. That's just calling something the same thing something different. You know you can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig. You know you can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called change, it's still going to stink after eight years. We've had enough of the same old thing." -Perhaps the most sexist statement ever uttered in the history of humankind
