Memo to Barack Obama and his speechwriters

'You mean pigs wear lipstick, too?'
The next time you're looking for a folksy way to describe some incongruity, such as intelligence in a presidential campaign, you might say it's like:

"Rouge on a rooster"
- or -
"Blush on a bull"
- or -
"Mascara on a mule"

Besides, "lipstick on a pig" doesn't work anymore. Haven't you ever heard of Miss Piggy?
