Time to Wash Off The Long-Stay Political Lipstick

September 11, 2008 - Joselyn King
Question -- What's the main difference between the overall positions of presidential candidates U.S. Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill. and U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.?

Answer -- With all the lipstick being applied to their campaigns, how would we know?

Americans presently are dealing with war in the Middle East, rising food prices, people with no healthcare coverage and the increasing cost of driving to a job that pays far less than what it should.

And what is the hottest topic being discussed by our presidential candidates -- lipstick. And their handlers are using it to the extent they're turning them into clown faces.

The reference of Republican vice presidential candidate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Plan to hockey moms, pitbulls and lipstick was funny when first said.

And no, I don't think Obama really was calling Palin a pig when he suggested "a pig with lipstick was still a pig."

If he was. . .well. . .it's time for everybody to get over it. We've got more important things to worry about.

McCain said this week he and Palin mostly will be campaigning together throughout the campaign -- a move thought my many as an attempt to keep Palin away from addressing media questions or issues.

Guess they don't want anybody to see her without her makeup.

As a fashionista myself, I enjoy a good conversation about lipstick -- or handbags, moisturizer or earrings.

But when it comes to politics, just how are voters supposed to assess painted candidates?
