Barack Obama, on Letterman last night, attempted to explain the whole lipstick/pig thing.
OBAMA: Keep in mind that technically had I meant it this way she would be the lipstick. You see.
LETTERMAN: Now we're...I don't know...you're way ahead of me.
OBAMA: The failed policies of John McCain would be the pig...just following the logic of this illogical situation.
Obama also told Dave that he's never actually tried to put lipstick on a pig, but said it seems like it might be fun. Apparently the All Things Considered staff thought so too -- they enlisted a Virginia pig farmer to give it a whirl on yesterday's show. Listen and learn.
