Saradise Lost - Chapter Forty-Six -- Putting Lipstick on Mooselini

John McCain, about Hillary Clinton
's medical care proposal:

Mr. Giuliani called her plan "socialist" and accused the Democrats of advocating a "nanny state."

Mr. McCain also criticized the Democratic plans, but his comments were more in passing and were far less barbed.

But when asked about Mrs. Clinton his speech, he said her proposal was “eerily” similar to the plan she came up with in 1993, when she headed a health care reorganization effort during her husband’s administration. “I think they put some lipstick on a pig,” he said, “but it’s still a pig.”

note - unlike so many people quoting Obama today, I'm willing to give McCain's comments their context.
