Lipstick on a pig

Apparently when Obama used an old cliche "Putting lipstick on a pig" to describe what he perceives as the McCain campaign's lack of real change, it was "offensive and disgraceful" according to the McCain campaign. They are now demanding that Obama apologize to Palin. If it's really so offensive and disgraceful, was it also not so when McCain used the exact same phrase when attacking Hillary Clinton in October 2007? Or does the McCain campaign believe he should be held to one standard, and Obama to another? Just be sure no one tells the Republicans that the former Pentagon communications director for the Bush administration wrote a book called, you guessed it, "Lipstick On A Pig."

If it was the other way around, Republicans would be complaining about how knee-jerk PC the Democrats were being. Didn't McCain just say that being on a presidentital ticket was tough?
