Regarding the "Did Obama call Palin a pig?" controversy: I doubt that Obama actually meant it that way (although that certainly seems to be how his audience took it). More likely, he was just trying to make a joke referencing Sarah Palin's speech, without realizing how it would sound.
However, given how Obama and his supporters made all those bogus accusations about racism in McCain's TV ads, I'd say that this is simply a case of Obama reaping what he sowed.
