    Default The temple of the cult of personality




    When Sen. Barack Obama moves the Democratic National Convention from the Pepsi Center to Invesco Field on Thursday, the freshman senator is planning to speak from a columned stage resembling an ancient Greek temple.

    "Is this from the Onion?" quipped a McCain adviser.

    The reference to the satirical newspaper came after Reuters reported that Obama is planning an elaborate rock concert set-up complete with post-speech fireworks.

    The national anthem will even have a touch of celebrity: Jennifer Hudson, the Oscar-winning actress and former American Idol castoff, will perform the honors at the onset of the evening.

    Starting with a July ad which included footage of Paris Hilton and Brittney Spears, the McCain campaign has been airing a series of television ads which paint Obama as a celebrity lacking in substance.

    The celebrity-like trappings of Obama's Thursday's speech may have given the Republicans new ammo.

    Was this the best choice Dems???...really, no one thought this through

    Or maybe it's going to be a giant Toga party.....Toga, Toga, Toga

    Musical guests are unheard of now? Please.

    Maybe the Rehugs will have John Voight do some interpretive vietnamese POW dances for them, while that famewhore cow from the Hills sings badly overtop.

    I wonder when McCain will start coming up with good ideas on his own.
    Instead of slamming Obama for generating interest.

    ^^actually that's the real point.

    If the dems want to break away from that line of attack, why do this? It's walking right into it.

    As I said, no one thought this through.....but it's the dems....they never think it all the way through

    The Democrats have been a disappointment to me over the last decade. They never seem prepared for the fight. This time it is theirs to lose by not being prepared and looking over every last detail. I hope they will do us proud! Not sure a Greek Temple is the answer and hope that setting doesn't take away from his message.

    ^^Yeah, the Dems have been their own worst enemy for the past 8-10 years. I'm liking the attack mode that they seem to be getting into, I just hope it lasts. And no matter what the stage looks like tomorrow, Obama is going to have to give the speech of his life to drive home the point that he's ready to lead on Day One, and that he's ready to tackle national security and foreign policy. Which means, he's going to have to lay out more specifics in his speech, or else the Republicans will eat him alive. But, then again, when Obama does lay out specifics the detractors pretend like they didn't hear them anyway.

    From the reports I am hearing, that is what he is planning on doing. He said that this speech will not be filled with rhetoric like his past speeches, but will finally lay out his plan and show people how he plans to get us there. This is exactly what he needs to do.
