Posting with photograph of dolled-up swine made before Obama’s controversial remarks

“The official website of the Democratic Party has a blog posting entitled, “McCain’s Selection of Palin is Lipstick on a Pig,” illustrated by an altered photograph of a pig with makeup, designer glasses and pearls.
“Palin is a red herring, lipstick on the Republican pig to distract Americans from the real issue that under the leadership of the Republicans the last 8 years, our country is falling apart,” writes the blogger, Elizabeth Berry, a self-described 49-year-old “progressive” from Texas.
The posting was published 11 days ago, well before Sen. Barack Obama drew sharp criticism yesterday when he jabbed at Palin and Sen. John McCain’s idea of “change” by stating, ‘You can put lipstick on a pig, it’s still a pig.'”
Obama was speaking at a campaign event in Virginia.”
