Love: The fact that everybody is up in arms about whether or not Obama was referring to VP candidate Palin when he used the common colloquialism “you can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig.”
Hate: That people will probably think he’s attacking all working mothers by saying they are pigs who put on lipstick and oink their way through the work day.
Love: That CNN gives a brief but fairly full history of politicians using the phrase. (See quoted paragraph below)
Hate: That nobody will read past the headline of this story.
