NEW YORK — Senator Orrin Hatch, a conservative Utah Republican, today defended Barack Obama from what Hatch called “ridiculous” charges that Obama had insulted GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin with the use of an age-old expression, “lipstick on a pig.”

“I think it’s ridiculous, what they’ve said about Sarah Palin,” Hatch said, referring to criticisms of her fitness for the White House. But to suggest that Democratic nominee Obama was calling Palin a “pig?” Just as silly, Hatch said.

“I think it’s ridiculous to make too much of Barack Obama [and his comments about the McCain campaign message]. I’m sure he didn’t mean it that way, the way it’s being interpreted,” Hatch said in a brief interview after he formally announced a sweeping national service bill he authored with his Democratic friend and colleague, Massachusetts Senator Edward M. Kennedy. Source Article
