Lipstick on a Pig

Unless you have been under a rock the last few days you have heard about the “lipstick on a pig” controversy.

I must admit when I first heard from a second hand source what Barak Obama had said I immediately thought that this was definitely an unfortunate choice of words.

When I had the time to look at the actual tape of Obama and put what he said in context I was mystified over the controversy.

Immediately prior to him uttering the phrase he made no mention of Sarah Palin. He was simply discussing Senator McCain’s assertion that he represents change even though he steadfastly holds on to many of the failed policies of the current administration.

I found no evidence that he used the phrase to imply that Sarah Palin was in fact the “pig”.

How unfortunate for the Republican pundits who were in shock, dismayed and outraged by the remarks that Senator McCain himself had used the very same terminology on October 11, 2007 when referring to Senator Hillary Clintons proposed health plan.

In this instance McCain was in fact discussing a proposal by a female Presidential candidate. Where was the uproar from the Democratic leadership? Where was the outrage? Why did they not demand an apology from McCain?

Because he did not use the term to defame Senator Clinton. It is a somewhat common phrase used especially in recent political campaigns. Any reasonable person could discern this.

There was no justification for the outrage. There was no justification to insist that Obama make an apology.

There was certainly no justification for the McCain campaigns television ad using these remarks that Obama innocently used and implying that he is not ready to lead but is ready to smear.

Very ironic coming from the McCain camp.

These tactics are tasteless and have left me wanting much, much more from a party that I have spent the majority of my life supporting.

This is just further evidence that the Republicans find it necessary to take the focus off of the issues by seizing on anything that has no relevance to the issues that we are struggling with.

If we look at each respective parties proposals the Republicans will lose to the Democrats in the minds of most Americans. They will do anything to avoid speaking on policy and issues.

In a new era where women’s rights are on the front page I would think it offensive for most women that the Republicans are implying that because McCain has chosen a female running mate that the Democrats must give Palin special treatment or coddle the Governor of Alaska.

I can assure you of one thing Ms. Palin can handle this. She is not a shrinking violet. I would like to predict that she will use this comment to her advantage during a future press conference or more likely the Vice-Presidential debates. She will make some reference to “lipstick” that will cause the crowd to cheer, her supporters to swoon, and will have created a sound byte that will be played over and over on everyone’s televisions for at least a couple days.

She certainly is no pig and she is even less of a dummy. Mark my words she will come out of this smelling like a rose.

How should Obama respond to the Republican’s requests for an apology. Easy, all he has to say is “You first Senator McCain. You first.”

Various types of concealer, matched to skin tone.
A concealer or colour corrector is a type of makeup used to mask pimples, dark circles and other small blemishes visible on the skin. Concealers usually do a good job of hiding blemishes by blending the imprefection into the surrounding skin tone. This product is mainly used by women, but use among men is increasing.
Both concealer and foundation are typically used to make skin appear more uniform in color. These two types of cosmetics differ in that concealers tend to be more heavily pigmented. Also, foundation is usually applied to larger areas than concealer is. The first commercially available concealer was Max Factor’s erace, launched in 1938.
Concealer is available in a variety of shades, from lightest to deepest. Some colors are intended to look like a natural skin tone, while others are meant to contrast with a particular type of blemish. White can be used to blur dark circles or bruising, and to brighten dull skin. Green and blue can counteract red patches on the skin, such as those caused by pimples, broken veins, or rosacea. A purple-tinted concealer can make shallow complexions look brighter. Colored concealers such as these are usually applied sparingly beneath a concealer or foundation that matches the wearer’s skin tone. Skin-toned concealers are not only the most common type, but are often sufficient on their own at hiding/bluring imperfections.
Concealers come in a multitude of formulations, from moisturizing to acne-fighting. Concealers are produced from lightest coverage all the way to the heaviest coverage. Let’s use a scale system to show you the coverage level of a concealer (1-lightest to 7-heaviest). 1-loose powder concealer, 2-pressed powder concealer,3-matte mousse concealer, 4-pencil concealer, 5-liquid concelar, 6- Cream concealer, 7- Paste concealer. Depending on what type of imperfection you are trying to cover, will determine what form of concealer you will need. For example, hiding enlarged pores or mildly discolored spots may require a light concealer (1-3). For hiding something like acne, dark circles, or eye bags, 3-6 would be ideal. But for hiding/blurring medical scars or moles you will need the heaviest product (6+). Certain concealers may be used by itself, or in conjunction with foundation.
