McCain Flip-Flops on Pig LipstickMcCain Flip-Flops on Pig Lipstick | The Washington Independent

In an interview with The Associated Press today in Jacksonville, Fla., Sen. John McCain admitted what every rational person in the country already knows — that Sen. Barack Obama did not call Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin a pig.

Did Barack Obama really call Sarah Palin a pig, as a John McCain ad leads people to believe?

‘‘No,’’ McCain said Monday.

The Republican presidential nominee defended the ad anyway, saying Obama ‘‘chooses his words very carefully.’’

The implication: Obama was slyly up to something when he said McCain’s call for change in Washington is ‘‘lipstick on a pig,’’ days after Palin made a lipstick joke at the Republican convention.

‘‘He’s very eloquent,’’ McCain told The Associated Press and Florida newspapers in an interview, and ‘‘it was the wrong thing to say.’’

If Obama did not call Palin a pig, why would the McCain campaign embark on such a cynical effort to convince voters that he did?

McCain said of Obama’s comment: ‘‘I didn’t like it. So we respond. I think the American people will judge as to whether he and others have treated Governor Palin fairly or not.’’ But he said he won’t let attacks go unanswered.

So that’s how McCain rolls: say something he doesn’t like and find yourself the target of vicious, lying attack ads that feign political correctness and completely distort your comments — and he’ll deny they’re lies until even Karl Rove has to call out of bounds. That’s an interesting definition of honorable you’ve got there, senator.

Also in the interview, McCain deflects a question on whether Palin requested $200 million in earmarks this year and cuts off one about the “Bridge to Nowhere.” Who wants to start placing bets on when McCain stops giving any interviews at all?
