Was Rudy Giuliani In Lipstick A Pig?—Palin, In Or Out Of Lipstick, Had Women In Wasilla Pay For Rape Kits

Giuliani in drag

The latest fuss over nothing in the campaign to elect a leader for the 300 million people who live in the most powerful nation on Earth is the term “lipstick on a pig.” Senator Barack Obama used the term to express, correctly, that claims of reform from the McCain/Palin ticket are bogus no matter how that campaign attempts to distort the facts.

Above is former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani in lipstick on Broadway in 1997. He is singing with Julie Andrews. I’d say it is at least piggish to make a career profiting off of September 11, 2001. 

As for Sarah Palin, while she was Mayor of Wasilla women had to pay between $300 and $1,200 for rape kits. ( It was a blogger friend of mine, Op Edna, who uncovered this fact.)

Wasilla is a town of just a few thousand people. The Mayor never took leadership in changing this barbaric policy in this small community. Did she not know or did she not care? Given that the Wasilla police chief was quoted in a newspaper defending the policy, one can assume she knew. 

What was already known about Governor Palin is that she opposes abortion even in cases of rape or incest. This position is so extreme that even Cindy McCain opposes Governor Palin’s view.

People can decide for themselves what facts and actions are relevant in this campaign.

  2. Great analysis. Thanks!

    Palin is Pro-War! She calls it “a task from God.”
    This mixing of God and war I find very sad.
    And it’s costing us Hundreds of Billions of Dollars.

  3. You always post the most interesting topics! The selection of Palin has left many of us shaking our head in bewilderment.

    I did a post a few days ago titled…An Interesting “Vetting” Comparison. You may find this interesting.

    I hope you don’t mind, but I emailed this post of yours to a colleague that is, yet, overseas.

    Kindest Regards,

  5. “You can put lipstick on a pig,” he said as the crowd cheered. “It’s still a pig.” “You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called change. It’s still gonna stink.”

    Does anyone actually believe this wasn’t planned in advanced?
