If "Lipstick on a pig is still a pig" then is a half White/Half Black still a nigger?"

A big bruhaha is developing over the quite crass remarks made by Barak Obama about GOP Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin.

During the GOP convention, Palin said the only difference between a Hockey Mom (like her) and a Pitbull was lipstick. I thought that was a terrific way to say she would be tenacious.

Barak Obama then crassly said something to the effect of "you can put lipstick on a pig, but its still a pig." Ouch! But hey, politics is hardball and one must be ready for such slings and arrows, which brings me to my question:

If putting lipstick on a pig still leaves you with a pig, does putting half white genes in a nigger still leave you with a nigger?

I wonder how Obama would answer that?

Hardball goes both ways. Ain't politics grand?
