Covered In Make Up

Just three items that came out on September 10th that were ignored during Operation: Maybelline.

Obama stoutly defends the Constitution.

Wasilla rape victims made to pay for DNA gathering kits.

Speech writer referenced known anti-Semite in Palin's RNC speech.

While all that was going on, the MSM and the noise machine played ping pong over a Rove-tactic that started like this:

"I have a fourth-grader and two second-graders at home," she said. "I would not teach them that this is sort of a high-minded debate on policy issues when they are calling people rotten old fish or a pig. In fact, it sounds a lot like some of the least intelligent debates on the playground sound like at our elementary school."

A reporter then reminded Swift that in December, McCain was asked about criticisms coming his way from then-opponent Gov. Mitt Romney, R-Mass., and McCain replied, "Never get into a wrestling match with a pig. You both get dirty, and the pig likes it."

Was McCain calling Romney a pig? a reporter asked Swift.

Of course not, Swift said.

On the positive side, Obama was able to deliver this condemnation of the tactics, which created the piggyback virus that led to the wave of backlash at the McCain camp maneuvers. Even Bill O'Reilly jumped on that bandwagon, though he still managed to make it feel oily.

You have to admire the timing of it all. It was a desperate and despicable ploy that took care of the 48 hours leading up to the truce on September 11th.

Reports say that Obama has something up his sleeve for Friday, and I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't curious as to what it would be.
