From the Wall Street Journal's Amy Chozick:
Barack Obama says the John McCain-Sarah Palin policies don't represent change, they're "just calling the same thing something different."
"You can put lipstick on a pig, it's still a pig," Obama said during a town-hall style event here Tuesday night.
The comment harked back to Palin's joke during the Republican National Convention when she said lipstick is the only difference between a pit bull and a hockey mom.
The McCain campaign has a press conference call in a few minutes to respond to Obama's statement. I'm guessing there's a pretty strong temptation to cry sexism. Hopefully everyone remembers that Palin's RNC speech was so effective not because she was outraged but because she delivered a devastating attack on Obama with a smile on her face and a stiletto in her hand.
