Obama Calls Lipstickgate Phony

Barack Obama said the furor over his comments about a pig in lipstick was a “made up controversy by the John McCain campaign.”

On the stump Tuesday, Obama bashed the Republican ticket by saying “You can put lipstick on a pig, it’s still a pig.” His supporters cheered, instantly drawing a connection between Obama’s jab and a line Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin said at the Republican National Convention about the difference between a hockey mom and a pitbull (lipstick.)

The GOP immediately deemed Obama’s comments “disgraceful” and demanded an apology. McCain campaign officials also created an Internet ad drawing attention to what they consider Obama’s sexist comments.

Obama was unapologetic Wednesday morning. He called the controversy “catnip for the media” that’s nothing more than a “phony and foolish diversion.”
