It's NOT about the lipstick Sybil Adelman Sage

The 2008 election has the potential of inspiring exciting conversations - about race, gender and issues -- yet today's discussion is about lipstick, making me think that Sarah Palin should be offered a cosmetics line to endorse.

The GOP vice-presidential candidate joked, "What's the difference between a hockey mom and a pitbull? Lipstick!" This should have positioned her to be the first politician to represent Revlon along with the United States.

With Lipstickgate getting so much attention, look for a line of Sarah Palin beauty products to include:

Red State rouge
Pitbull limp plumper
Hockey Mom self-tanning lotion
The blush to nowhere
Earmarks concealing cream
Smearproof mascara for the woman with "typical family problems"
Pink Pig lip liner
Offshore Oil facial moisturizer
Long-lasting lip gloss for flying cross-country while in labor
Don't mess with Sarah or you'll be accused of sexism eyeliner
Thanks, but no thanks, make-up remover

Unlike other cosmetic lines, these may be tested on animals shot and killed by the candidate.
