Who Gives A Shit About Lipstick?

First, "libstick-gate" has a palpable jumping the shark vibe about it. Rush seemed to play it right, with the rimshot comedy routine sound effects. Hannity is playing it into the ground - as usual, with his Lennie Small routine.

The shame is that it overshadows some really awful commentary from elected officials that would probably have more impact on the mind and mood of the electorate.

Who doesn't think that South Carolina Democratic chairwoman Carol Fowler isn't glad all of the attention is on liptick instead of her unbalanced rant? After saying John McCain had chosen a running mate "whose primary qualification seems to be that she hasn’t had an abortion,” she issued a half-assed apology that no one heard either.

And the "Obama is Jesus, and Palin is Pontius Pilate" comparisons are far more offensive. Probably more with the Democrats who profess a disdain for Christianity than to any of the religious types who probably would not vote for Obama anyway.

Democrat Steve Cohen in the House.

Hey Steve, I submit to you that your hair is fucked up and you sound like a nutjob.

Lest we think that this was an isolated delusion by the honorable TN politician. Check out Donna (Boys from) Brazile. Damn I just couldn't help myself.

The Bible says to whom much is given much is required and it comes out of that tradition. So it was insulting to see both, you know, the governor as well as Mayor Giuliani criticize people. There’s some on the Internet now that Jesus was a community organizer, Pontius Pilate was a governor. And perhaps they should understand the role of a community organizer, do help people in distress.

I would caution Republicans to not overplay the "stop picking on Sarah" whine. The McCain campaign needs to make fun of these rants lest it looks like Ms Palin can't stand the heat.
