Barack Obama was in Lebanon, Virginia, yesterday (that's halfway between Slabtown and Stone Bruise along the Trail of the Lonesome Pine--not kidding) and said something about putting lipstick on a pig and it not being any different, and... whatever. I think what's important to realize is that the better choice is the mellifluous and pedigreed "you can't make a silk purse from a sow's ear," although that may have been heard as a slur against Sarah Palin's moose-skinning abilities.

Personally I think the point at which McCain sold his soul was when he hired Tucker Eskew. It's one thing to hire someone who worked against you; it's quite another to reward someone for kneecapping you.
