John McCain’s turnaround time to defend Sarah Palin is truly remarkable. It seems mere hours after Barack Obama said, "You can put lipstick on a pig," as the crown cheered, adding "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."

John McCain quickly launched this viral video response to those defamatory comments, which some say were Obama’s way of indirectly calling Sarah Palin a pig. supplemented the new video, seen above, with this older video in which Obama apparently gives Hillary Clinton the flip, seen below.
