Alright, one amusing addendum to my previous post about Swinegate. It appears that Obama’s remarks… at least the ones leading up to the “pig” comment… may not have been as off the cuff as we thought. Credit the ever astute watchdogs at Free Republic for this find.

First let’s examine the text of Obama’s comments (pre-“pig” joke):

John McCain says he’s about change too. Exce- and and so I guess his whole angle is – watch out, George Bush – except for economic policy, healthcare policy, tax policy, education policy, foreign policy, and Karl-Rove-style politics, we’re really gonna shake things up in Washington.

Now compare that to the following editorial cartoon from Sept. 5:

Unlike Obama, I give credit to the source… cartoonist Tom Toles. Left-leaning yes, but he works hard at what he does and deserves a mention if his lines are going to be lifted and used for campaign rhetoric.

How many times do we have to tell Obama’s staff to keep him away from Joe Biden?
