John McCain says he’s about change, too — except for economic policy, health care policy, tax policy, education policy, foreign policy and Karl Rove-style politics. That’s just calling the same thing something different. You can put lipstick on a pig; it’s still a pig.The "pig" obviously being — to anyone with adequate cognitive functions, at least — the aforementioned policies and the "lipstick" John McCain's recent and sudden alleged devotion to "change."
Have John McCain and his faux-outraged supporters never heard this ancient, hackneyed expression before? They should have:
When asked about Mrs. Clinton [after] his speech, [McCain] said her proposal was "eerily" similar to the plan she came up with in 1993, when she headed a health care reorganization effort during her husband’s administration. "I think they put some lipstick on a pig," he said, "but it’s still a pig."Anybody accuse John McCain of referring to Mrs. Clinton herself?
Didn't think so.
