US Senator Barack Obama campaigning in New Ham...Image via Wikipedia Ever since the convention, the McCain / Palin Campaign have adopted Barack Obama’s theme of change. Today Barack Obama was fighting back against the team that is suddenly soaring in the polls. Unfortunately for Barack Obama he might have committed a bit of a gaffe when he said “You Can Put Lipstick on a Pig, But It’s Still a Pig” and many of the people in attendance thought he was referring to Sarah Palin.

That’s not change,” Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., said of what Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., is offering.

“You know, you can put lipstick on a pig,” Obama said, “but it’s still a pig.”

The crowd rose and applauded, some of them no doubt thinking he may have been alluding to Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s ad lib during her vice presidential nomination acceptance speech last week, “What’s the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? Lipstick.”
