Watch out Obama - I'm a pitbull in lipstick, says barnstorming Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin recast herself as John McCain’s ‘pitbull in lipstick’ early today to defy her detractors and crown a rollercoaster week with a barnstorming speech to accept the Republican Party’s vice-presidential nomination.
Yes, my favorite quote when Ms. Palin, Gov. of Alaska made her speech at the Republican's convention last night (after Mr. Huckabee and Mr. Guiliani) was the sheer confidence and exuberance of her being a "Hockey Mom"
She said it before her speech, and it went right in to the text of her speech:
Palin: "Thanks for the warning. By the way, do you know what they say the difference is between a hockey mom and a Pit Bull?"
McCain aide: "No, Governor."
Palin: "A hockey mom wears lipstick."
Gov. Sarah Palin and I have something in common: you see, I have been called a "pit bull" many times in my career, the past 15 years, oh, my God. Why? I was opinionated -- still am--and tenacious in my career in consulting, with a steel will and tenacity for the needs of my federal clients. And I have had some mighty difficult clients: attorneys who do not want to pay a high enough retainer for me, and dangerous ones: attorneys who curry favor with lobbyists in DC and then go right into jail. (Tom Delay, Neil Volz, Duane Gibson, Terry Martin, Tony Rudy, George W. Bush, Bob Ney, Jack Abramoff --who led the hearings? John McCain!)
Sarah Palin is making an impression to many women -and surprisingly (to me), to men!. She is a comely pit bull, and that's how the dogs truly are. They are sweet animals, but when they get a hold of your leg, the simply do not let go------they just hold on........and on......and .......don't/won't let go of that leg!
My shade is plum, or deep claret. And I favor Max Factor.
