Nominations In The Midst of Operation Smear Palin

The media continues to attack Sarah Palin for a second straight week but it appears that those efforts may have actually backfired. The medias’ attempts to smear Sarah Palin has rallied the conservative base and sparked interest in her message, especially in the important white women demographic.

Adding insult to injury is the comments this evening by Barack Obama where he stuck foot in mouth with a very bad swipe at Palin. Obama appeared  in a televised campaign event and said “You Can Put Lipstick on a Pig, But It’s Still a Pig”. This is responsible for not one, not two, but three individual Memeorandum discussion topics. One for the event, a second for the defense by the left, and a third counter argument to defenders of Obama’s “slip”.

The week has been quite remarkable indeed. A fact that leads the Watchers Council to nominate the following articles for this weeks competition:
