Satire by Eddie Griffin

Forgive my mental regression, but I’m like a 5-year old when it comes to understanding Sarah Palin’s “pit bull and lipstick” statement.
Mommy, mommy, look at the pit bull wearing lipstick.
That doesn’t even sound right? The only difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull is lipstick, and Sarah Palin wants to be known as a “hockey mom”. The pit bull analogy doesn’t make sense unless she is trying to convey toughness.
Damn! All we need is another pit bull in the Whitehouse. Listen to all the barking over there, and now she is the Big Dog, a pit bull. Shessh!
Let’s get the dogs out of the Whitehouse and don’t put a pit bull guard dog in the yard. Silly Dog, barking at the moon.
Metaphors can be used to a candidate’s detriment. Why didn’t little Ms. Sarah just come straight with us and tell us how tough she really is? What about her vengefulness? That’s part of the same brand of Palin toughness.
In a hardball game against the best political team in history, a woman has to be tough on one side and tender on the other.
Do not preach to me about family, pride, dignity, and morality, just because I am a Democrat. He that is without sin cast the first stone.
Don’t pick up the rock, Sarah. There is an unborn at stake.
