Mr. Obama: Lipstick on a pit bull OR How much did you pay for lipstick 10 years ago?

All week long, the pundits have told us that the political conversation has been held hostage by a “pit bull wearing lipstick.” Sarah Palin’s now famous comment: What’s the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? Lipstick.”

On the Chris Matthews Show this morning, I heard him say that the Palin lipstick comment was intended to throw Obama off message, away from the real issues facing America today.

But Mr. Obama, if you wanted to change the conversation to the scary things that are happening to our economy right now in a humorous–and reaching- out- to- women- way– you might have said: What did you pay for lipstick ten years ago? And what are you paying for lipstick today?

Follow the money….
