"Lipstick on a Pig" Issue Makes McCain Look Like a Whiner

6

Doug gave us his excellent post on the “lipstick on a pig” issue. Now I’d like to add a couple of words.

One of the reasons to like John McCain is that he’s tough. But overreacting to a comment by Barack Obama makes his campaign and his supporters look like a bunch of whiners. I don’t think Obama even meant the “lipstick on a pig” idiom to be a personal insult towards Sarah Palin. But even if he did, so what? Suck it up. Palin doesn’t need to be coddled. From what I could tell from her acceptance speech, she can more than hold her own in the political arena.

McCain’s campaign needs to keep their focus if they want to win. Whining and moaning about even the most imperceptible of slights doesn’t make McCain look presidential.
