The conservatives have been waiting for a chance to scream sexism at Obama over Palin and Drudge finds a way to do it. He takes Obama out of context. In the full clip, Obama clearly is talking about John McCain as Wolfson points out, but Drudge and as usual---FOX/Hannity---lie and say he was speaking about Palin. This is Rove Politics 101.

Marc Ambinder gets to the truth: Obama Did Not Call Sarah Palin A Pig

And he also remembers that McCain actually attacked Hillary with the same phrase.

And so is John McCain. Speaking about Hillary Clinton....

McCain criticized Democratic contenders for offering what he called costly universal health-care proposals that require too much government regulation. While he said he had not studied Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton's plan, he said it was "eerily reminiscent" of the failed plan she offered as first lady in the 1990s.

"I think they put some lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig," he said of her proposal.

As Duncan says "Just more Zombie lies."
