John McCain has released an ad in response to the gaffe about lipsticks and pigs by Barack Obama . Yesterday in Virginia Obama said, â€œJohn McCain says heâ€™s about change too, and so I guess his whole angle is, â€˜Watch out George Bush â€“ except for economic policy, health care policy, tax policy, education policy, foreign policy and Karl Rove-style politics â€“ weâ€™re really gonna shake things up in Washington.â€™ Thatâ€™s not change. Thatâ€™s just calling something the same thing something different. You know you can put lipstick on a pig, but itâ€™s still a pig. You know you can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called change, itâ€™s still going to stink after eight years. Weâ€™ve had enough of the same old thing.” He didn’t directly call anyone a pig, but the McCain campaign wasted no time assuming he did, and in politics perception is just as important as reality sometimes.
Here is John McCain’s ad ‘Lipstick’;
UPDATE: The ad was pulled by YOUTUBE for violating copyright rules. It had a part with CBS Katie Couric saying, â€œOne of the great lessons of that campaign is the continued and accepted role of sexism in American life.â€ CBS issued a statement saying, “CBS News does not endorse any candidate in the presidential race. Any use of CBS personnel in political advertising that suggests the contrary is misleading.” You can still see the video on John McCain’s website.
