“You know, you can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig,” Obama said. “You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called ‘change.’ It’s still gonna stink after eight years.”
The line prompted people to jump to their feet and cheer — apparently taking it as a direct slam at Governor Sarah Palin, the newly minted Republican vice presidential candidate.
