A bitter row between the Republican and Democrat camps broke out yesterday after a reporter claimed that while watching a Palin interview, Obama was overheard to whisper to the person next to him "Look at the size of her arse. It's huge. She'd never be able to get that sucker into the White House."
The Palin camp were quick to react accusing Obama of 'derogatory personalisation' and categorically denied Palin did in fact have a big arse.
However later in the day a McCain Aid was seen measuring the White House door.
Observers speculate on the effect of Obama's comment and point out that In subsequent interviews Palin has only been shown above the waist.
Palin's Press Office has declined from issuing a statement regarding the size of Michelle Obama's arse and instead will hit back by publishing a picture of Sarah Palin in the Oval Office together with the caption "Does my arse look big in this?"
