Is it just me, or does it seem like we live in an upside-down world? A few months ago, Republicans were falling all over themselves declaring that there was no sexism going on in their denouncements of Hillary Clinton. But, now, when somebody says, Sarah Palin is not qualified to be vice-president (because she’s about as coherent and truthful as our current president, George Dubya Bush), Republicans are falling all over themselves screaming “sexism!”.
There’s still a lot of talk about lipstick in the news and in the blogospere and it got me thinking about what that saying, “you can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig”, actually means. For the uninitiated, or those who have not yet finished their morning cuppa, it basically means that just because you try to change the looks or the meaning of something, doesn’t mean it’s not the same crap you tried to feed to us during the last presidential election cycle (or something like that).
Today’s Ten Post Round-Up is going to embrace the lipstick. This morning, I am going to engage in putting lipstick on a pig. I’m going to take the frown in the news and turn it upside down by reminding you that bad news really is good news. I strongly encourage you to click-through the links so that you don’t misinterpret the pig or the lipstick (or something like that).
Of course, we must first start with an upbeat and positive YouTube about everybody’s favorite political act, Johnny and Sarah.
Sure it looks like bad news, but it could be good news if:
- Everyone on the web agreed with everything and if those who disagreed kept their opinions or concerns to themselves and off the Internet.
- You have a twisted sense of humor and understand the irony of the schtick.
- The contractor who is going to get paid big bucks to develop this.
- This were a hit movie.
- You were one of the ladies on The View.
- You believe that every American citizen has the right to marry whomever they wish.
