I swear I am so tired of that word... We have how many more months of it?I want to know what the next President and VP are going to do about defending this country. I want to know if/when they are going to put up a wall to stop illegal immigrants from coming in. [b]I don't care anymore who said what about lipstick! [/b] Nothing else really matters to me. We can deal with the other huge problems, we are Americans, we can overcome. And we will!We are in two wars, with talk of getting into others including another Cold War. What country leaves their borders wide open during the time of a war?I don't wear lipstick...

lol, I have to be honest, I saw the word lipstick and almost punched the monitor. there have been 6 other threads on the lipstick thing in the last 24 hours. It's nausiating. but, I guess we shouldn't waste time on trivial things like energy, ecomnomy, wars or other silly stuff. Lets worry about important stuff like Palin's hunting or Obama's pig remark, or was it Mccains no,wait it was gore, oops, no it was Cheny....wait IT WAS ALL OF THEM.

I know, if we aren't reading about it on the internet it's on television. I feel as if I have heard more about Lipstickgate than Watergate, Clinton's affairs, OJ Simpson, Martha Stuart, Britney Spears and Paris Hilton all put together. Only in America could we make lipstick a celebrity!

The issue of the borders is something that our leader's response to is so illogical that I have no idea what they are really up to, but is not anything good.

um, i didn't see McCain in here posting threads on it. Mccain doesn't tell me what to talk about, neither does Obama, or Baldwin, Or Barr, OR McKenny, Or Paul for that matter.

being a legal immigrant it is really a sore spot with me when illegals can come in without going through all the channels i had to I love my new country but if you want to live here then begin by following its laws!If you dont like her laws then may i suggest you stay where you are

Thank you Rev. I think us allowing illegals here is a huge slap in the face to you people who came the right way. Immigrants who truly worked hard to get here are the most patriotic and appreciative Americans I have ever met. Legal immigrants in the past are the people who worked the hardest to build this country. Thank you for coming here the right way not by sneaking over a fence and shooting a border guard on your way.

hi whatshername...they really should get rid of that expression and just talk about the issues at hand. we do have bigger needs to solve.

I agree, and you know what? I think the media should stop showing us the lipstick clips too.

but the media is having so much fun with this. and it's really not about what needs to be done, it's what is in the medias best interest. they love this. they were probably so excited and buzzing about it in their newsroom and offices. yum yum to them. this is their candy baby.

Hello WhatsHerName, I share your fatigue with the petty. However, as is typically the case, the spirit of the observation is what is relevant. Let us consider: Sen. Obama warned America that his opposition would denigrate him with petty, prejudicial criticisms. Like the fact that he doesn't look like the faces on our currency and that he has a 'funny' name. Yet, there was no evidence to support that allegation. To date, the issue of racism has been overwhelmingly contained and bantered about within the DNC, culminating with former President Bill Clinton in the N.Carolina primary. There are a few exceptions, i.e. David Duke's extremist statements against Sen. Obama, yet David Duke has run for political office as both a Democrat and a Republican, so it isn't fair to dump him on either party. http://www.nndb.com/people/210/000024138/ As for the 'funny name' charge: John McCain made a very firm statement about the disparaging use of Sen. Obama's middle name on 2/26/08, to the displeasure of some in the GOP. http://embeds.blogs.foxnews.com/2008/02/26/mccain-denounces-anti-obama-remarks-use-of-dems-middle-name/ McCain didn't have to take the 'high road'. In fact, the left-wing, Huffington Post took the opposite stance, and questioned whether Sen. Obama's skin was too thin, concluding that he "needs to address his middle name". http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/02/27/gop-strategist-obama-nee_n_88763.html The convoluted point is that the 'barbs' aren't the meat of the issue. Instead, the 'barbs' are wholly representative. In the case of the lipstick remark(s), there is little doubt that each was intended to be disparaging. Especially in light of last nights news that Sen. Obama may have plagiarized the comments that followed the 'lipstick, pig, fish' remarks from a Washington Post political cartoon, indicating that the verbiage was contrived and not off-the-cuff. Of course, then Sen. Obama threw himself under the bus in the same way that OJ Simpson threw himself under the bus when he penned the book titled "If I Did It". Obama did so by throwing gasoline on the fire when he made the following comment on David Letterman's show. "Keep in mind, technically, had I meant it this way, [Palin] would be the lipstick. The failed policies of John McCain would be the pig, just following the logic of this illogical situation," Obama said. http://wcbstv.com/campaign08/barack.obama.david.2.814491.html So, why does it matter, if it does at all? Because there are many reasons why campaigns prefer this kind of non-issue competition, some honorable though most not. This 'non-issue' tactic is as old as politics, so it is to be expected. Yet, how the 'barbs' are framed, the intensity of the criticism behind the barbs, and the reaction to a 'barb' tactic remain very telling of a candidate, and the type of administration that they would subject us to, if elected. This is best demonstrated by three callers to a local radio show yesterday afternoon, who emphatically declared that they were Hillary supporters who had reluctantly decided to support Obama. Yet, they denounced the spirit of the pig remarks, and shifted their support to McCain/Palin. I only heard about 20 minutes of the show, and in that time heard three women make the assertion. If only one was sincerely yanking her support from Sen. Obama, then that one need be multiplied by some factor representing 'on-the-fence' voters. Any way one looks at it, the spirit of the 'non-issue' remarks appear to be a sincere turn-off to 'likely voters'. And, this type of non-issue has a long history of generating legitimate deal making and deal breaking political campaigns. In particular, one woman was deeply compelling yesterday. She explained that "If Sen. Obama didn't know when to keep his mouth shut ... and didn't know how to frame a criticism without sounding juvenile ... then how might he conduct himself in the international arena ... when the teleprompter is down?" She concluded by declaring that her 10th grade son acted more maturely. As for my preferred shade of lipstick: Well, I'm partial to a Burt's Bees Transparent Pink, and Laetitia's 'Champagne'. Neither of which can hold a candle to the bold shade donned by yesterday's now famous media sow.

Lol, I think I'll start wearing lipstick starting with a "bold" shade. I think I saw that show and have heard about all the people not only coming from the left but also many undecideds and independents are choosing McCain thanks to Obamas immature reaction to Sarah Pailins' popularity. Was that the show Chuck Noris was on? I love what he has to say. A woman from the left was also on the show and she actually called him "sexist" because he disagreed with her about illegal immigration. Thank you for responding, I'm honored.

whoa! i dont really know the whole story but base on the thread of the responses on this discussion...but are they making it mandatory to really wear lipstick?
• United States

No but I think it's mandatory for politicians to give lip service.

I think the fact that Obama can't find anything else to talk about says a whole lot. It was a joke, for goodness sakes. Don't they get that? I agree - there are major issues and major problems and lipstick is the last thing that should be discussed by the candidates.

I just had a revelation, as I glanced at the telivision and saw Sarah Palin. I picture here getting a new hair doo or makeover like that D.A. at the OJ trial. Boy will that make the head lines? The entire world will be talking about Saraha Palins makeover. We could call it makeovergate...

Agreed. I am sick and tired of hearing about lipstick when I rarely wear it. And yes, our country is at war and more men are about to do their ___ tour of duty, and does anyone care? No. Men are still fighting and dying in Iraq, and no one cares. By the way, to those of you who are still supporting this war, shame on you. What the Hell is wrong with you? You can support the troops, but don't you dare say that you are for this war. I have seen way to many people go back and forth to Iraq, and I am tired of it. Our men need to come home.

Well at the local mall one day I saw a woman wearing a hot neon green lipstick! Does that count? Oh I see that you are actually talking about putting lipstick on a pig. Well I guess that it all depends on the pig, I mean does the pig really want to wear lipstick? Maybe if it was Spider Pig! As for this other he said this or that, WHATEVER get over it. They both have said it, so what? Are there not more pressing issues with the US of A right now than lipstick??? Apparently the news media would have us believe not.

I like a shinny brown or pink. I think that would look wonderful on a pig also. And I agree with all your points in politics. You couldn't be more right. But there more worried about making the pig look PRETTY. !
