Far from it, if you consider the misogyny, race baiting and attacks on Sarah Palin's family (including her children) done by the Obama camp and his surrogates.
Today, Obama said at a campaign stop in Lebanon, VA:
“You can put lipstick on a pig. It’s still a pig. You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called change. It’s still gonna stink. We’ve had enough of the same old thing.”In playing on her "difference between a pit bull and a hockey mom is lipstick" joke, Obama called Gov. Palin a "pig." Keep in mind this is the same kind of sexist rhetoric used by the Obama campaign that has angered many Hillary supporters (check out their comments tonight). Back in 2007, it was revealed that an anti-Hillary ad was produced....by a tech for the Obama website.
The other low road taken by the campaign is one we were told that Republicans would supposedly use. Instead, it's been used either by him stating he "looks different" (psssst. I'm black), English Hollywood idiots in MTV or professional race-baiters like New York Gov. David Patterson who support Obama.
"There are overtones of potential racial coding in the campaign. The Republican party is too smart to call Barack Obama 'black,' but you can take something about his life, which I noticed they did at the Republican convention. A 'community organizer.' They kept saying it, they kept laughing, like what does this mean?"
No, the only "racial overtones" are coming from you, Gov. Patterson, the Obama Campaign and the Democrat Party. It's also in the words of anarchists who write columns promising race wars if Obama is not elected.
Then, the children of Sarah Palin get attacked once again, by the idiot (and 3rd most liberal US Senator) Joe "Plugs" Biden, who said this about Palin's baby son, Trig.
"I hear all this talk about how the Republicans are going to work in dealing with parents who have both the joy, because there's joy to it as well, the joy and the difficulty of raising a child who has a developmental disability, who were born with a birth defect. Well guess what folks? If you care about it, why don't you support stem cell research?"
Well guess what, Plugs, many of us support stem cell research, we draw the line when it comes to the use of embryos (destroying potential human life). Science has proven greater yields from umbilical cord stem cells and other sources.
Even bloggers on the Obama campaign website are asking for an affidavit to prove Trig is Palin's son.This is the candidate of change? Hardly. As I said in an earlier post, it's the same old Democrat playbook, the politics of division and the politics of personal destruction.
The only change is, this time, it comes from a candidate with all the class of a gangsta rapper.
