Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama
is accusing John McCain's campaign of "lies and phony outrage and
Swift-boat politics" in claiming he had made a sexist comment
against vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
Obama on Wednesday called the Republicans' criticism of his use
of the phrase "lipstick on a pig" a "made-up controversy."
On a campaign stop Tuesday, Obama criticized McCain economic
policies as more of the same from the Bush administration. He said:
"You can put lipstick on a pig ... it's still a pig. You can wrap
an old fish in a piece of paper called change. It's still going to
stink after eight years."
McCain's campaign has accused Obama of "smearing" Palin in
"offensive and disgraceful" comments.
